I'm aggravated because my vision for my perfect wedding just isnt happening. I refuse to have a cookie cutter wedding. Unfortunately, it seems like everything my fiance and I want, costs a fortune and we cant afford it. When we started planning our wedding, we wanted to take a cruise to Bermuda with 15 of our closest family and friends and get married while in Bermuda. It was going to be perfect and surprisingly cheap. Then both of our dads, who are very old school, started complaining about having to take the cruise and even said that they would not come. While, I think both of them were full of crap and if this is what we decided, they wouldn't miss it for the world, I dont want to make them do something that they dont want to.
Having a local wedding would be fine but I haven't been able to find a venue to my liking and all of the little things just keep adding up. I also have always been a firm believer that you should never invite someone to your wedding that you wouldn't have over for dinner. 90% of our guest lists falls under the "would not have over for dinner" category. I would prefer to share the day with my nearest and dearest but having a local wedding just wont allow for it.
Does anyone have any suggestions for destinationish wedding locations up to about 3 hours away from Saratoga?
