Were considering one so I need advice on what all I’d need to consider rooms reception and ceremony locations what else so I need to consider with this option
His family is in California
Mine is all over
Only asking mine to travel doesn’t seem fair

Why is it fair for his to travel and not yours?
ETA: never mind I read your last statement wrong.

jadynerose: His family is from all over, mine is from Sacramento, we live in LA, and we got married in SF. Seemed fair to me!
There are all the same considerations as a normal wedding, look at any big wedding to-do checklist, but it’s a bit more complicated from afar. I suggest either hiring a wedding planner, finding a place that does everything, and/or having the wedding somewhere close enough to you or someone you know that you have a free place to sleep at when you travel for planning.

A family friend in Utah is helping us plan.
His family is all in Cali and live about an hour apart at the furthest.
I have Wisconsin Texas Massachusetts Ohio Hawaii Oklahoma Mississippi Oregon Nevada and California
So it only seemed fair to go elsewhere but California instead of renting a hotel for my whole side of the family.
And the family friend helping with planning offered her beautiful yard and house for the reception (she has had parties there for Halloween with 200 people)
So that saves money and her bff there owns a bar and offered to bar tend (alcoholic family so NOT open bar)
