"I am in a wedding party pretty soon, for my LIB's sister's wedding. We will be traveling 2,000 miles to be there, and because it's so far, we kind of consider it a destination wedding. We have spent a ton of money on this wedding from airfare, fare for shuttles (a bit too young to rent a car), attire, a pet sitter, etc. We have pretty much blown through our once hefty savings account, and with my LIB's pay cut, it's been rough. At this point, it's getting very hard to afford a gift."
