My fiance and I have just recently gotten engaged, and have only just begun to consider the logistics of where the wedding will eventually take place.
I am from California, and he is from upstate New York. We both now live in New York.
My parents and some of my friends live in California. The rest of my family is scattered all across the US. His parents and most of his family live in NY, and he has friends both here and scattered across the country.
A good portion of both of our guest lists will have to get on a plane no matter where we hold the wedding.
We've been wobbling back and forth as to whether to hold the wedding near us in NY, back in California, or doing a DW since most guests will have to travel either way.
Would a wedding in NY or California be considered a DW anyhow, due to the necessity of flying for a majority of guests? This will be a relatively small wedding either way, under 100 guests invited. Most likely around 70-75.
Any suggestions to minimize cost and inconvenience for our friends and family?
Sorry for the rambling post, I'm still sorting through all of this in my head. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!
