I am in a pickle! Fiance and I live in Texas, my family lives in Michigan, and his family lives in Florida. There is a church where I live now that I just love and want to be married there more than anywhere else but I’m trying to be open hearted. In Michigan would be the least amount of people travelling, but pretty inconvenient for me. I think the cost would be a wash, here things are more expensive but less people would show up. Advice welcome on how to plan across the country! My mother and aunt would help if asked but I’m a little worried they would hijack my vision, also I would want to help with the DIY touches. Also, how bad would it be to have a small wedding ceremony here and then a blowout reception up north? Either way, I would ask for no gifts because of the travelling and I don’t want to figure out how to move them anyways.
A little about myself… I will make everything look cohesive and lovely however, the style of our wedding will be “stuff we like.” That is the kind of couple we are. I wouldn’t try and deceive anyone about the situation.
Okay, weigh in bees! TX/TX, TX/MI, MI/MI? Oh and what is your opinion on Memorial Weekend weddings?
One last thing, How tacky is it to ask people beforehand how many people would be willing to come to TX?
