What to do before you agree to participate in a wedding

So, you have been asked to be in a wedding?

Being asked to participate in a friends or relatives wedding can be a great honor. It can be fun. But it can also be very expensive. Here are some questions to ask BEFORE you agree to participate…

  • Do not say yes about the tux or dress until you talk costs
  • Do NOT go into debt
  • If the costs are getting out of hand, SPEAK UP!
  • Don’t agree to be in the wedding if it will be too much for you. Remember, it is also an honor to just be a guest.

The Washington Post has a recent article on this very subject. Go here to check it out.
