A couple is getting married in an Asian country and has invited their friends.
Now, the internet is all abuzz about the extravagant requests in the "save the date" card.
The couple would like people to take 2 weeks off from work and spend roughly $5,000 for the opportunity to celebrate the occasion.
People on the internet think the request is crazy. However, those same people have no idea about the financial situation of these people. Maybe the couple runs in a circle of millionaires. Maybe their group of friends travel abroad quite often. Who knows?
My nephew got married in the Bahamas. I received the invite to join them. It would have been great had we been able to afford it at the time. We couldn't make the trip, but I wasn't offended that he invited us. I probably would have been more offended had he assumed we couldn't make it.
This couple should get married where they want to get married. If people can join them, that would be great. If not, they will still have a great day. At least they extended the invitation.
