Is there a middleground? My Fiance is from Austria, I’m from California. His family and friends are in Austria and the east coast of America, all of mine are in California, Hawaii, and the southeast. We’re getting married in PA because it’s meeting in the middle. Maybe you could find somewhere that is driving distance for his family, and doesn’t cost as much for your family?

i agree with the middle ground. My family is in FL, my SO’s family is in TN, but we both were raised,met, and still live in atlanta, GA, even after our parents moved back to our origins. Ga is a perfect middle ground for us

I am in a very similar situation and we are just having multiple weddings. We are planning our big wedding here where we live for all our friends and church family and a small family only wedding for his family in WV. Then a small family only wedding for my family in NEPA. We are reusing alot of the stuff and his mom is providing all the food  for his family. My stepdad can be depended on to make a great meal for my family so other than gas money I am out very little. I am telling no one when our “real wedding” really took place so that there are no hard feelings. When people demand an answer I just smile and nod. The only one who will know is FI’s (pastor) friend who will act as our best man in the big wedding and the officiant in the small family only weddings and he can be counted on to keep a secret. It was the only way to even partially satisfy all sides. 😛

I am having a winter wonderland theme for our small family only weddings and a vintage theme for our large one. I like the fact that they will be in direct contrast. I may change out our wedding photos based on the season lol.
