    This is a tough one, but it sounds like no matter what you do it’ll be difficult for someone. Ultimately, it’s going to have to be about what the two of you want first, and the family that wants to be there will have to go the extra mile to be there. Yes, travel is tough and expensive, but if my son or daughter was getting married, I’d move mountains to be there.

    I’d do it wherever is convenient for you. You don’t want to be planning a. Wedding from states away it’s very difficult. Some people have two showers one in each area thrown by the family there. I’ve seen that a lot lately. Also consider more where your bridal party lives if you are having one I would go with the majority of them in mind as well. Lastly you have to find a venue you love that’s in your budget so the location of that might just make the choice for you

    You can’t please everybody.  That’s the first thing you need to recognize.   As for your specific circumstances, only you can really decide what you want.

    While I generally don’t like the traveling reception show, that might be your best option — a private ceremony with you and your fiance, and then a big reception with each of your families in their respective locations.
