My fiance and I think we wanna get married on a beach. We live in the States near lot of beaches, But there are two main reasons were having a hard time with that.
1. It would either have to be about 7 months from now or a year and 7 months from now. My sister will be out here around June for a memorial and she doesn’t wanna combine trips because they’re 2 totally different moods.
2. Every venue that I’ve looked at that includes a reception and a place for the ceremony is already gonna start around 15000 if not more. And that’s not including catering or anything else or flowers.
3. (Bonus) My fiance said we can get married wherever I want. But hes been married here twice before and he wants to make this different.
So he and I have been talking about the idea of going somewhere tropical and combining it with our honeymoon. I also have a lot of friends I would be needing to book flights if they can make it and it ends up being around $500 round trip and that doesn’t include food or a place to stay. So if we looked into all inclusive resorts it may be more affordable for those traveling. Not to mention that most of my friends haven’t been outside of the US and to think it would work as an incredible vacation for them. We would go mid November and it would still be warm. Maybe they could plan their paid vacations during that time, We would keep it kid friendly and spouse friendly. Also hoping that maybe if we save money we can help with a couple people’s travels. (We want to keep it around 50 tops, total there’s about 25 that we REALLY want to come).
However I’m still getting a vibe that my mom would not approve. she’s really confusing me and I’m not sure how serious to take her. She said things along the line that it’s my day and I should make it however I want it, But when I told her the only thing that we were pretty sure about is that we wanted a beach wedding, Or at least outside She kind of joke or suggested to get married in Vermont Where they live.
I know that she would let some family members stay there but she kind of made it clear she didn’t want my friends staying there when we talked about it years ago hypothetically. So I am sort of dreading talking to my mom about wanting to go abroad.
So what reactions did you get?
Should we keep it local to avoid making any waves?
A bonus would be what destinations should we consider, and does it end up being relatively affordable?
