@habibti:  what means more to you? the wedding where you live and incurring the expense or plannin if from afar. people plan weddings out of state all the time now and his parents are very generous to extend you the offer of paying. 

Personally I’d likely have the smaller wedding and maybe throw a dinner on the East Coast (nothing asking for gifts because that looks rude) just to be able to celebrate with his family. however, im not sure if this is something you were considering… but why not just get married with you and him and your kids in like a courthouse thing and then have a huge reception later if you are worried about cost then just pay for your parents to fly there if they would like to go. Im sure paying for the 7 of you to fly (you, your husband, kids, and parents) would be cheaper than a whole wedding. then again, letting your FILs pay is also more cost efficient. it comes down to whats more important to you.
