    As Vince Vaughn's "Wedding Crashers" character famously asks, "Which do you like better? Christmas or wedding season?" Better question: Which is more expensive?

    If you're attending more than one this year, weddings can be more costly than the holidays. It doesn't have to be that way, but you need to take time to set aside the excitement of receiving a wedding invitation and consider how the event fits into your social and financial bandwidth. You should be confident in your decision to attend (or not) when you RSVP.
