I always thought I knew where I wanted to have my wedding. But then I visited the venue yesterday and I wasn’t super impressed. Now im thinking of all these different ideas and I just dont know what want! Anyone else have this problem??
All I know is that I want soemthing different, FUN, with a nature-feel to it. Oceans, trees, gardens, etc
If I get married near home ill likely have 150+ people. (My family is in new York/new jersey/pa). which is a pretty big wedding and will likely cost at least 30k.
Now I have all these other ideas…semi destination wedding on a florida beach…a caribbean cruise wedding…Riviera Maya destination wedding…or just something local?
Anyone else as clueless as I am? Lol

@khaleesi: Have you established your budget? To me that is the first decision to be made when it comes to wedding planning.

@khaleesi: You still have plenty of time. (Over a yr) Once you decide on who you truly want there with you on your day, then it will be easier to make that decision. What I’ve learned through this process is that once I start to get overwhelmed, I set the planning aside for the rest of the day. This is supposed to be a wonderful and magical time. Do not let it get you to a place that you aren’t enjoying it anymore.

@julies1949: yea ideally budget will be less than 30k for the entire wedding cost, including our travel and hotels
@FutureMrsLarson: yes I know what you mean! I definitely have to do that. Havent gotten to that point where im not enjoying it..just dont know what I want! Lol

Keep in mind for a destination wedding you will lose a lot of people that will come. I invited 102, so far only 38 have committed. A lot of our aunts and uncles are not coming. so we are saving money that way less people less expense. But if you want a bigger wedding with your whole family there I recommend staying local.
I thought that for sure all of the family would come, but it’s not the case, especially if the trips end up to be expensive.
