Where do YOU want to be married?

My family lives on the other side of the country from me and our friends are spread all up and down the east coast.

So Fiance and I picked Maine because we love it there. 98% of our guests are coming in from out of town and everyone is excited about spending the weekend in Maine.

I would vote you either do your wedding in Philly or in Western PA since those places are important to you.

How do your families feel about traveling?

@EvrHngry: You are definitely allowed to be a little bit selfish!

It’s not like you are telling people they must come to a private island only accessible by private jet and must pay their own way!

You are just asking those you love to come celebrate with you in a place that is special to both of you.

I am very much one who wants to please all those around me as well and was very worried about having a “destination wedding” and expecting people to fly from all over the country, get hotel rooms, etc. But so far everyone is loving the idea.

Possible option:  My sister’s husband is from New Jersey she lived in Scranton, PA so they chose to have their wedding at http://www.godsmountain.org/.  It is a retreat center in the Scranton area.  It provided lodging for their guest and gave them a wedding weekend.  They had family cater the reception and it all came in at under $5000 total wedding cost.
