- Wedding: November 2012
We are trying to decide where to get married. We currently live in Phoenix, AZ area and my FH is from Ohio and I am from New Hampshire. Finding a location to get married is going to be tough. We both come from huge families with different socioeconomic backgrounds, so no matter where we have it some members won’t be able to afford to come. A small wedding (20-50) with just immediate family and our closest friends is ideal for us. I am pretty non-traditional and rather frugal and would like to keep it simple but pretty. I have always dreamed about getting married on the beach and we are thinking about doing a destination wedding. I would like to keep it relatively close to our guests to reduce costs, so it has to be in the continental US. We are thinking New England area (which would probably creep up our guest list by a lot the closer it got to NH), Outer Banks area or somewhere in Florida. We were thinking about renting a large house on the beach and having the ceremony and a small party there. Then we will have large BBQ receptions in OH and New Husband for all the guests who aren’t able to attend.
Does anyone have any experiences with destination weddings in those areas they would like to share?
