Destination Wedding or Plan in a city you do not live in or 2 receptions?
Ok so I am having a problem... All of my family(75people) is from Chicago and all of my fiancees family(25people) are from Boston but we live in California. We meet at college in California and wanted to have our wedding there because it is meaningful and we have tons of connections for cheaper rates since we just recently graduated. It is also just a gorgeous campus. But after making the guest list I realize that everyone would have to buy a ticket. Out of 100 people only 5 people live in Cali. I could cover there living because we have nice dorms with personal bathrooms for people that didn't want to do a hotel. Is it selfish to have it in Cali? Should I have 2 receptions? Or should I have it in Chicago where mostly everyone lives? Chicago would be a hastle and way more expensive for us but Cali would be expensive for everyone else? I mean we are recent grads aka BROKE...What do you think?
