    The big question is who is paying. That does change everything.

    As a married bee who tried to please the parents, ended up canceling my big WI wedding and having a tiny one, (all recently!) I will tell you- DO what YOU want and what is right for you.  You won’t be able to please everyone, so think about what you want and make it happen.  Depending on who you are dealing with and how reasonable (or unreasonable) they are, you won’t be able to please everyone- and maybe no one at all.  So do what is right for you.

    People want weddings for their own reasons, but it is up to you and your SO- because this is YOUR wedding.  I vote MI, but most of all- do what YOU want!

    Edit- I re-read and I say elope 😉  You could always have the intimate ceremony however and where-ever you want, and then have a reception later.  Then again, if you want them to pay and don’t mind them having more control- maybe consider what they are thinking in WI.
