Have you run this past the parents? They could be very insightful to family expectations. Surely, your extended family (literally as they are across the world) would understand they would either have to travel or be with you in spirit.

FWIW- we are far from our families and planning alone. So far it has been relatively easy (knock on wood), a few minor bumps, but no stress (as of yet, we are just over 2 months out) Planning without mass support is not as daunting as it sounds.

If I were you, I’d just plan my wedding for when it suits you, those who can make, will and unfortunately those who can’t, won’t. I just wouldn’t be able to deal with the headache and if neither you or your Fiance are set on having the two weddings, save yourselves the trouble and just have the one you want.

Aprillover:  Have one wedding where it suits you best, which probably means where you live now. If one cousin can’t make it, well that’s a pity, but you don’t wait two years for her. Who knows, some of your older relatives may not be well enough to attend in 2 years.

I’m not a fan of dual weddings, unless one if is official and one is a special cultural celebration. Otherwise the second one won’t really feel like a wedding. It’s just a celebration – which is fine – but it’s not a wedding.

I’ve been to a wedding where a close relative couldn’t make it, so they skyped on the morning of the wedding.
