Choosing A City - Wedding Wednesday

Joe and I have been engaged for about 3 months now and we have started to make some big decisions for our upcoming wedding. The first thing we had to decide on was where we were going to have the wedding, not the venue, but what city. There are a ton of things that we considered before we made our final choice! 

How to Choose Where to Have the Wedding:
  •  What size wedding do you want to have? Joe and I want to have a smaller wedding. We want to  have just immediate family and friends. With that being said, we decided on keeping the list to about 40-50. 
  • When do you want to get married? I feel like this is the number 1 most asked question as soon as you get engaged! But to be completely honest, Joe and I had no preference. There wasn't any time that seemed better then any other. 
  • Is is important to have a wedding where you are from? Joe is from New York and I am from California. We are currently living in Colorado. So, we really could have had it anywhere. Neither of us were stuck on having a wedding where we were from. 
  • Where do most of your guest live? After going over our rough draft guest list, we noticed that no more then 4 people live in the same area. We will have guest from all over! Everywhere from  Hawaii to New York and every where in between. 
  • Do you want to have a destination wedding? The beach is nice, but I have always told my friends and family that I was going to get married in Spain. I am spanish so it totally made sense to me. Joe is Italian so we also looked into Italy also. 
  • Make a List and do your research! We finally narrowed it down to Northern California, Spain, and Italy. After a ton of googling and a ton of time spent on Pinterest we finally decided on a location. 
  • Do what you want to do! We took our parents opinions into our final decision but at the end of the day, we did what finically made sense to us and what we wanted. 
Joe and I will be getting married next year in Tuscany, Italy! We will be taking a trip early June to meet with our wedding planner (more info on how I found the right wedding planner later), visit venues, and do some food tasting.  We decided that we wanted to have a small wedding that would allow us to spoil our guest for 3 days! We want to have it either in a Castle or a Villa. Food and wine is most important to us and Italy is just the perfect location. I can't wait to see how all of my idea come together!

What is your best tip for choosing where you will be having your wedding?

  1. A wedding in Tuscany sounds dreamy!

  2. Sounds like an amazing wedding! Can't wait to see it all :)

  3. A destination wedding is such a smart idea if your guests are already scattered around…they'll have to travel anyway!
