Ask Liz: Two Weddings Enter, Only One Leaves

Break it Down, Figure it Out
Dear Liz, 
My fiance and I are planning a wedding 2 years out so we have time to save and I can finish with my graduate degree.  However, when we got engaged, I never dreamed of how expensive everything would be.  I have had little to no emotional or financial support from my family and although we have time to save to pay for the wedding of our dreams ourselves, I’m at the point that I feel like it would be for everyone else–instead of us.
I would like a barn wedding with a big group of people (we’ve cut the guest list down to 200), but I’m considering changing the plans completely and doing a destination wedding in Mexico instead. Do you think I would regret it?  What type of hidden costs are associated with a destination wedding?
Donde  o Donde?

Go to my column today on The Broke-Ass Bride and see out what I told her. And let me know what you think in the comments!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you at the end of the aisle,
