- Wedding: May 2011
Having just moved to Panama City, FL from my hometown of Melbourne, FL (about a 7 hours drive), I’m having a hard time deciding where to hold our wedding. I have no interest in having it in Panama City, but my family has a cabin in Western North Carolina, and I’ve always dreamt of being married in the Carolinas. If I find a venue near the cabin, it can provide a free place to stay for about 20 people. Most of my fiance’s and my family live in New England, so the trip would be cut down quite a bit for them, as opposed to traveling all the way to central Florida, to my hometown of Melbourne. However, would it be asking too much for any other friends I’d like to come (mostly scattered throughout Florida) to travel all the way to NC for my wedding? Should I settle for a location I’m not so crazy about for a larger guest list, or should I go for the location I love, sacrificing those people less willing to travel? What do you think?
