How Do We Decide Where to Marry if Our Families Are in Different Countries?
Question: My fiance and I are from different countries and continents. Is it more important to choose a wedding location that is convenient for both sides? Or should we just have a wedding for 'us'?
Answer: by The Knot
You and your fiance are the highest priority without question. But it’s more than likely that what will make it feel ultra special is to have your inner circle of family and friends there too, sharing the moments when you officially celebrate becoming husband and wife. Sit down with your hubby-to-be and write out a short and concise list of those dearest to each of you (and who will be able to travel) and take it from there. You may have to juggle and think outside the box. For example have the engagement party in one country and the ceremony and reception party in the other. Plus, thanks to online technology, you can easily share the important moments via live video streaming using Skype, Facetime or similar, that way nobody will feel left out.
