Good advice on the trip to a wedding in Mexico. I just get irritated at the folks who plan these weddings in exotic places. If they get mad at family that don't attend, shame on them. They selfishly planned a wedding that costs attendees to just show up. I think the soon to be wed couple should have the money to pay for the guest if they plan a wedding in a distant place or be very content with a small gathering. How important to them is the symbolism of standing before family and friends and pledging their vows?
