Hi all! I am newly engaged for a few weeks now and the preliminary planning has already begun. I am engaged to my long term and even longer distance FI. We are both from NJ but I am currently in Fl. He is trying to move down here so that we could be together. However we have decided to have the wedding in our home state as that is where the majority of our families are. We have the venue and the bridal parties almost all set. We are racking our brains on how to work out having all the Pre-wedding events (bridal shower, bachelor party, bachelorette party etc.). Both of our sides are mainly in NJ and we want to work out as many things as possible without having to spend alot of money flying back and forth and missing out on any work. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to work out these long distance plans without missing out and breaking our pockets?
