FI and I have been back and forth about marrying locally. There aren't that many venues that we both really like or that are pocket friendly. We both have rather small families so its not like a huge wedding will be happening for us anyway.
I keep lurking on this board and the pictures look so amazing it makes me want to say "f-- it" lets just go to Hawaii. I can't tell you how many times I've said OMG from all the pictures I've seen so far lol
I was curious to know what was your deciding factor for choosing a DW? Was there a major cost difference between Hawaii and something local for you or was it something else completely?
