My name is Stephanie. My fiance and I have been engaged since April, and we have been through a lot since then (surgery, two moves, a new house, and a successful 3-month job hunt). We just want to get away and have a wedding that celebrates US without dealing with the craziness our families will cause (mine is full of judgmental wannabe bourgeois types, his is very blue-collar with a lot of addiction - talk about class conflict. We hope to get married next fall - and we have a running list of these places for our wedding: 1. Spain, 2. New Zealand, 3. Costa Rica, and 4. Italy I would love ANY tips and advice. I wish I could do the wedding including both our families, but we think this may be best given our circumstances.
