paxie:  I say go for the move to Australia. Why not? You only live once. I’d say don’t concern yourself with what kind of wedding to have just yet. Go to Australia and see how it goes.

paxie:  Is there a rush to organise the wedding (like for visa purposes etc?) If not then I would just enjoy getting to know each other in person and being engaged when that happens. I don’t think you need to be stressing about what your wedding will look like right now when you have to get meeting each other in person and getting engaged out the way first. Also, Australia is cool and I’m sure you’ll like it here 🙂

Hate weddings? Elope. It’s all the perks with none of the drama 🙂

Then you sign the paperwork at the courthouse and have a family celebration at a later date. Or you come to a compromise with your future fiance by detailing where you both stand as far as weddings go and what you’re willing/not willing to compromise on.

paxie:  I suggest you compromise and have an immediate-family-only (or even parents-only) wedding.

As a mother myself, I think (in most cases) it’s a little rude to exclude his parents from your wedding when they’ve devoted 20-odd years of their lives raising him, and have probably been looking forward to his wedding. Just because you invite parents (and possibly siblings and grandparents), doesn’t mean you have to do the 100-person big wedding.

p.s. Not what you asked, but make sure you spend plenty of time with your man in person, before committing to marrying him.
