So I need some advice. My FH and I are trying to start thinking about the location of our wedding… and we have a difficult situation… so I was wondering if you all could help us out.
My family all lives in NJ, except for my parents and my sister. All of his family lives here In ND where we currently live and go to school. So… do we have the wedding in NJ where all of his family would need to travel? Or do we have the wedding here in ND where all of my family needs to travel? OR… do we have it in a neutral location (like colorado on a mountian with wild flowers) so both sides need to travel… and its a direct flight from NJ (way cheaper than flying into Fargo) and a 10 hour drive or a direct flight from Fargo?
Is it tough planning a wedding that is not close to where we live? Should we do what we want even if only like 5 people are there? that seems silly to me because the reason we are having the wedding is so people come to see it! Otherwise we would just go to court house ya know??
At the same time though…. his family is not good about weddings even if it is a 20 minute drive from their house… so I am afriad if we do it anywhere that is not Fargo… then no one from his side will come. 🙁 What should we do??
