It totally depends on what your budget is and what you feel comfortable spending. You say you could afford a 25k wedding. Is that an amount you’re comfortable with? Or would you rather budget for 10k? Or are you okay spending 25k if it  gets you the wedding of your dreams? I think you should come up with a preliminary budget (which means figuring out guest list as well, at least the start of one) and then see how far that money will take you in the different areas. You might find that there’s a venue you LOVE in the suburbs and it will allow you to have a lower budget as well. Or you might find that the only place that can accomodate the number of guests you have is a place in the city.

As for pros and cons of DWs, I sincerely wish we had done one Smile just because it’s so much easier (or at least it seems that way…I’m sure they have their own set of problems and issues). But it really depends on whether it’s important to you to have everyone you love with you to celebrate. A Destination Wedding is almost always going to be much smaller. And i t’s not necessarily less expensive, although I”m sure there are ways to make it cheaper.

Sounds like the wedding in the city is the best option.  And it sounds like its what you really want.  It just seems to have more pro’s than con’s.  So while the extra money stinks, it might just be worth it to ensure that you, your guy and your guests have the most fun.
