Excited to get married, but it's tough to marry an Aussie

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've been engaged for 4 1/2 weeks, and I'm still trying to pick a region let alone a date (we are thinking Nov 09 - Feb 10)

 

My fiance is Australian and my family is on the east coast of the states so it makes it hard to find a destination that suites everyone.

 

We are leaning toward Cancun/ Riviera Maya because it is easiest for my side (especially me who needs to plan it). And it is affordable, but my fiance is sad because it is unlikely that any of his friends will be able to make it.

 

The other option was Hawaii, but that is so far for everyone and it's so expensive. I guess they are assuming wedding spending is recession proof, but I think it is a bit excessive!

 

If anyone has any words of wisdom on how to handle this situation, it is much appreciated!

 

Lisa

Hello and welcome to the forum Lisa. Have you thought about having an AHR for all the friends and family that can't attend the wedding?

Hi Lisa, good luck in planning! Planning a destination wedding will likely result in complaints from many (but then again, so do at-home weddings). The most important thing is that you and your fiance are both happy with your decision, so sit down and really talk about it. You'll find lots of helpful, wonderful people on here as well as great information!!

Just realize that not everyone will be completely happy. Unfortunately you will have those hard to please people. Do what YOU and YOUR FIANCE want and don't stress about others. It's impossible to please everyone.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
