For one thing – more options means more regrets/more headaches.

Is NJ going to be much cheaper?

How far away is Vermont from where you would get married in NJ?

Remember it is your wedding, if they love you they will be there no matter where it is. It will be easier for you if you plan it locally to where you are. Don’t let them change your mind to something you don’t want.

Well, wouldn’t it be easier for you to plan a wedding in New Jersey where you live? Planning a wedding is a big project and there will be lots of visits to florists, bakeries, hair dressers, make up artists, musicians and if you’re not within easy reach it’s very difficult. Planning a wedding in Vermont would be like a destination wedding. That’s not to say you can’t do it, I’m sure it’d be beautiful, but it’s worth considering what would be easiest for YOU.

How many people would you like to have at your wedding?  And are they all from NJ? Would you be upset if a fairly big % of people you invite RSVP no, or end up not showing up?  

Many people are unable to make a big trip that takes 9 hours (that’s 18 hours of driving just in one weekend), and it is very considerate of your NJ family to offer places for people to stay so they can save money on hotel rooms.  I think if you want more people to show up, and most of your family/friends live much closer to your hometown, you should have the wedding there.

You can always have a party with your Vermont friends–and invite your chef buddies of course–after you get back.  Nothing wrong with two parties!
