So in conversation with my fiance about our wedding next year, he says he much rather have a destination wedding. I would rather have our wedding close to my family and where we live, which means his parents, sister, grandma, and our 2 close friends that live where he is from (the only people that would be coming from out of town to the wedding) would have to travel 4 hours. He stated that it would be easier and make it fair to his parents, sister, grandma, and our 2 close friends who are traveling if we make everyone travel to apart of the wedding. My family is close and there would be close to 20 family members and 5 of my friend that live near us now who would have to travel as well if we had a destination wedding. I think that the destination wedding would be more of a headache and cost more between having to pay for the hotel rooms for everyone that we can not afford to do and having to do the wedding options some places offer. I want to be hands on in planning it and able to make it more personalize rather having some else do it for us.
Any advice or suggestions?
