- Wedding: September 2011
Hi wedding bees! this is my first post on this board and I need your advice from those that recently got married or about to get married. Which option should I choose .. 1 or 2?
(1) Dream Wedding in Florida with my Family & bestfriends by the beautiful beach ..I’m big on BEAUTIUFL pictures and videoography so I can always go back and remember our beautiufl ceremony/reception with our loved ones since my family and his family never went on a family vacation together. PLUS a 1week HONEYMOON in Hawaii in 4 star or lower resorts .
(Note: the FL wedding will be my 1st wedding and i’m having another one locally a few weeks later for the rest of family & friends.I actually won a great wedding package through a contest .. see below = so yes im having 2 weddings!).
(2) Have a local wedding in Woodbridge, VA …. HOWEVER .. the ceremony space isn’t my DREAM. PLUS go on a 2-week, luxury 5-star resort, HONEYMOON in Hawaii like what I always dreamt about .. travelling around with the hubby and working on producing travel videos.
However, the ceremony space isn’t my ideal “dream” at the picked location from the contest, but everything else in the wedding package is absolutely wonderful and all of the vendors are so fun to work with. It’ll be a fantastic wedding for all of my Family & Friends , but I want BEAUTIUFL ceremony pics and videos with family for me to look back to … or is the location not important … as long as we state our vows in front of our family & friends? I still want the beautiful beach backdrop though.. The contest is also giving us a really nice Rehearsal dinner for 40 people with fancy food at a country club .. so I was thinking that this event will top it off for me since I’ll be with my family and close friends .. and we’ll have beautiful pictures.
What do you all think? Help me decide bc I am confused!
