I haven’t been in the situation, but I have close family who was, and they have all chosen to have just one event, I’m sure that is what I would of done too. Yes, travel costs are expensive…but not as expensive as throwing two events! Plus, someone will always feel left out for being the second party and not witnessing the real wedding.

But that is just my opinion, there are bees who have done two events successfully, maybe one of them will come on here and give you some advice.

My Fiance and I are actually in a very similar position. We decided on where we wanted to get married before he actually proposed; we did this so we made the decision that we wanted to do not necessarily what others wanted us to do. My family lives all over the place- NJ, PA, IL, CA, France and his family is mainly from NY. We have both been living in Boston for somewhere around 8 years. But because pretty much everyone would have to travel no matter where we got married, we decided to do a destination wedding in a place that means a lot to us- VT. It makes it easier because we can make it a weekend thing and very special. We’re planning to have around 130 people which will be nice and we’re also getting married in the late fall- 11.3.2012. 


I think ultimately, you should think abouot what the two of you want- not necessarily what is easiest for others. Good luck!

@BirdieBride21: I would check out these two venues….


Church Landing (not a church – just the name of the building) at the inns and spa at mill falls, Meredith New Husband (On a lake in a charming town)


Wentworth by the Sea (Close to Mass boarder and on the ocean next to portsmouth), New Castle New Husband.
