    Hey guys, I am still a newbie, although I have posted hello before. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, as I'm still getting used to this forum, so please point me in the right direction if I'm in the wrong place (tried to search but wasn't sure what I was searching for!).

     

    My DW is slightly unusual in that it's abroad (about as far away as you can get!) but it's not in a resort, so our guests will be all over the place. It may also not be that hot, so I can't necessarily use a lot of the amazing ideas I've come across on here, like fans for the ceremony. It'll be in a church and a hotel, just as if I was getting married at home.

     

    Has anyone else planned a wedding like this?

        I'm getting married in August 2012 in Australia. It still seems so far away. FI wanted to give guests 2 years notice so that they could save up but I just want it to be NOW! I'm super organised, so like to keep doing little things as I go along.

          Congrats!!!!! 

           

          I orginally wanted to get married in Sedona AZ... And thought of doing the same things as you are doing, just like i would do at home.  Have you possibly looking into renting a big house?  Sedona had huge houses you can rent there where they can hold up to 12+ people... I am not sure how many guests you are planning on having.  But i thought i would share.  But after much research i decided not to do Sedona anymore... Hoping for Jamaica :)

           

          But good luck and happy planning!

              Oh I love Jamaica! Went there last summer when a colleague got married. I think it was an empty invitation really as I don't think she expected us to come but we did! They got married at Sandals Montego Bay, but we stayed at the Rose Hall Resort as it was a bit cheaper. I would go back in a hearbeat

                    Do you know where in Australia you'll be getting married? There are lots of beautiful spots about an 1 or so from most of the major cities, that way you could get everyone to stay in one spot (cheaper) and you're a bit off the beaten track.

                      Hi Karyan,

                       

                      I'm getting married in Sydney (it's all booked - yey!). Other than close family, I don't think it's going to be feasible to have everyone stay in the same place. As we've given plenty of notice, some people are using it as an opportunity to have a "holiday of a lifetime" and will be staying out there for a month or so, which means they'll be moving around a bit. I think, logistically, it would be a bit hard to arrange for people to arrive on different dates. Plus, some people have family in or around Sydney who they'll be staying with.

                       

                      I get so frustrated when I see great ideas on here which won't really work because of the way our wedding is going to be.

                       

                      Whereabouts are you in Australia and where are you getting married?
