I have been getting a lot of heat from my mother about my wedding location and need some help understanding if I am out of line. My fiance and I currently live in Kansas City. I'm from Omaha and he's from Orlando. Personally, I've always loved Orlando and think getting married there would be incredibly fun. I have gotten a lot of negative feedback from my mom. She says that I am picking Orlando because my fiance wants it in his hometown and I am choosing his family over mine. She says there are a lot of people in Omaha that will be offended/won't be able to make it if the wedding is so far away, and that by choosing a wedding in Orlando I am cutting her out of most of the planning.
Financially, my fiance and I (both of our parents are divorced) are planning to ask each of our parents how much they would like to and be comfortable contributing to our wedding fund and then funding the rest ourselves. And on top of that, all of our friends, college friends, and relatives that we would want to
invite to the wedding are spread out all over the eastern side of the
country (my mom's family is in Baltimore!) so no matter where we have our wedding, most of the wedding
guests will be traveling several states regardless.
My question is, am I out of line or in bad taste for choosing to have a wedding in Orlando, which happens to be my fiance's hometown?
