My SO was previously married and says he has no recollection of his wedding. Basically she did everything the wayshe wanted it and none of his family was there so it was a HUGE expense with little significance. I want his experience to be different and we are going to decide OUR wedding together because its not a show but an expression of ourr love.
His family lives in Paraguay and cannot afford to come to the US (not to mention the extreme difficulty to get a visa) so i’d like to do a small family wedding there and in two years do a big wedding with all of my in the US.
PROBLEM: My SO has 12 brothers and sisters (can you believe that his mom was put to work!) so no matter how small i try to make it, it will still be a relatively large size wedding. My father has 8 brothers and sisters and each had at least 3 children so my wedding here is going to be ginormous even if i dont include my moms family (which I will). Do you think its worth the expense to make my SO happy. he hasnt seen his family in 6 years i think it would be a great reunion for him. BUT just to fly to Paraguay is around 1200 per ticket and there are 3 of us. EEK the headache
