Shortly after I and my fiance got engaged he was transferred for work to Texas and we are from California. Now we are faced with the decision of having our wedding out here or having the wedding in California… his family and my family are in Cali but would it be so bad if we had it here in Texas? I know my fiance is worried that his family won’t show but I think it would turn out fine and some would show. We wanted our wedding to be more small and intimate. I am just looking for advice and honestly, I am worried that if we have it here people will be upset – any advice is much appreciated!

If you both want the wedding to be small and intimate, without hurting anyone’s feelings by not inviting them, I would have it in Texas. I am sure his family would make the trip if they are able to be there. As long as you understand not everyone would be willing to travel, I would do it where you two want it to be because it’s your wedding.
I know California is expensive for weddings so maybe Texas would cost less? I do not know if that’s a factor though.

rocky88 : Why is he worried his family won’t show? Do they have less disposable income?
You say you both wanted a small and intimate wedding but does this mean the same to both of you? It seems like your Fiance would be upset if his family couldn’t fly in for the wedding.
