That’s a tough gig. ALL of our family live on the other side of the Atlantic so it’s a sticky situation too, but we are planning on giving them two years’ notice and getting married here in Canada where we’ve made our lives together and can organize easily.

For the US wedding, I’d suggest getting married where it makes you both happiest. Those who care about you will be wiling to travel from other parts of the US, especially with ample notice. Unless you think there may be barriers to that for some people.

Hi and welcome! I am planning my wedding from 5000 miles away, transatlantic as well. I grew up in the States, and all mine and FI’s family and friends and there, but I live in Israel. We will be getting married in Los Angeles next summer, a week after you! I have 4 weeks this coming July when I am physically in LA to finalize/book EVERYTHING. So I have done MONTHS of online reasearch, narrowed down my choices based on prices and recommendations, and have schedules appoitnments with venues, caterers, etc, over the next few weeks. This site has been a HUGE help and a great resource for ideas and recommendations. Message me if you have any questions or if you just need to vent or whatever. 🙂 Congrats ont eh upcoming wedding, fellow Cali, July, long distance bride!
