I think Colorado is definitely your best bet.  I think if you’re finding it’s expensive you’re looking in the wrong places!  Look for a more rural location!  Maybe look at Fort Collins or somewhere in that area.

We did the same thing for our wedding, we married in Colorado Springs which was basically meeting in the middle of our families.

I think anywhere you choose to have a wedding you can find less expensive alternatives to what you want to do, you just may need to be a bit more creative.

It seems like you could a) do a wedding at a 1/2way location or b)do a progressive wedding….have a small ceremony & reception at each location. We’re lucky to be from the same home town (Dallas) but most of my family is in England. If my grandparents weren’t coming to the wedding I would have had a small ceremony&reception in Dallas and repeat it in England.

We’re having our wedding in Colorado! Of course it helps that I live here 🙂 FI’s parents are in OK, my parents are in Seattle, and everyone else is scattered all over the country. I think we have about 5 local guests. It is absolutely beautiful here; however, November could be really hit or miss. It can snow, the leaves could be gone, etc, etc. But, Denver is a direct flight from anywhere and used to handling snow. We expect our wedding for 100+ to be around 15k (including dress and rings, but not rehearsal dinner or honeymoon). Fort Collins (where I live) is probably cheaper than Denver, Boulder, Estes Park, or other typical Colorado destination wedding locations. It’s also a straight shot from Laramie or Cheyenne. There’s a van-shuttle from the airport and the town is very compact. Since you’ll be planning from afar you probably want a non-diy location – try the Tapestry House – I think you’ll find everyone raves about it and you might get a discount in November and you can even stay there. If you want to go for a more typical place like Estes Park I’m sure you’ll find that they’re really used to destination weddings and can make it easy for you. If you want more Fort Collins info I can let you know all our vendors.
