Suck it up and have the wedding in your neck of the woods. Think about your wallet and if your friends love you, they will drive 5 hours. I drove across 6 states for 9 hours to get to my friends wedding…>CAUSE I LOVE HER

Won’t your family have to do the 5-hour drive if you choose Northern VA? If some group is going to have to drive either way, might as well have it in the better location. If you can just make a few trips back, planning from 5 hours away shouldn’t be terrible. I have a friend who planned hers from about 8 hours away, and she just made a couple of weekend trips to scout venues and meet with vendors.

@leogal:  I think you should do it where you both want! Come to an agreement. Explain to him I can get us venues for cheaper, bands ect ect.

  Planning from a few hours away shouldn’t be hard at all. And plus since most of your family and friends live where you want to do the wedding, they can help you out also! ( that’s what they are there for !!lol)

Are there more people who would need to travel in Southern VA or Northern VA?  That could tip the scales! 

Weddings are just SOOO expensive, southern Virginia would get my vote!!
