I think if you know people can travel and you can travel once or twice to St. Louis you can just go ahead and plan it there.  If you know it that well it shouldn’t be too too hard.  Otherwise, what time in 2011 will you know? I think it’s doable to plan a wedding in a year if necessary and you could do things right now that don’t revolve around the venue/location (dress, etc) or just come up with ideas you love until then.

Where is your family from?  That is the “proper” response.  It’s generally expected that the wedding will be near the bride’s family.  This matters more if your parents are paying for a significant portion of the wedding.

Second, if the first one doesn’t give a clear solution.  Where would most people be coming from?  For example, we live on the East coast.  His whole family is West Coast.  It costs $600-700 for him to fly home.  It costs about $200 for me to fly home, or to fly from his hometown to Missouri.  Much easier for the bulk of my guests to make it if it’s in Missouri.

There’s another question – have you asked him?

A final deciding point – SD is going to be more expensive that St. Louis.

That said, San Diego is GORGEOUS.  I’m a Missouri girl myself, and my guy is from San Franscisco area.  Basically as soon as marriage came up, he said he wanted the wedding in my hometown.  I’d really want to arrange my wedding in whatever town I was in at the time, personally, but for my guy tradition wins out.

Wherever you want the wedding! I currently live in St Louis but I’m planning a wedding in Charleston SC, its surprisingly easy to plan something long distance. So if you want STL go for it but if you want somewhere else that would work too! good luck reaching a decision!!

I’m going to throw this out there…

Las Vegas 🙂

The days of the cheezy drive through wedding are over – although you can still drive-through.  I live in Vegas and am working on my wedding right now.

It’s an easy trip from San Diego, Allegiant flies from the St. Louis area.  Room are reasonable, venues are plentiful.  And then, no matter where you are, you have a built in vacation!  We’ve talked to a lot of vendors in planning our wedding a lot of them are surprised that I’m local. 

While it might not be the perfect solution, it might be a fun one 🙂
