As soon as Brooks and I got engaged, we got to thinking: where should we get married? Brooks’ family is in Canada. Mine is Tennessee, Nevada and Utah. Our friends are spread out all across America and throughout Europe, too. A destination wedding would make sense, but where?
Am I the get married on the beach, toes in the sand kind of girl? Or would we rather do something unexpected in the winter, maybe in the snowcapped mountains? I’ve been to beautiful weddings at vineyards, ranches, on tropical islands, and they were each stunning in their own way.
Then I begin to think of logistics such as flights, hotels, transporting this here and that there. Taking time out of our hectic schedules to visit the destination for a walk through and menu tastings. I also have this daunting thought, what if I forgot something essential back at home? Has anyone ever forgotten say, their wedding dress?! Might it be easier and less stressful if we kept things closer to home in LA?
I normally like to create a list of pros and cons whenever I have to make a big decision. I’d love your help — what’s your advice?
