    Pros don't have to cater for freeloaders ... only those who really are a big part of your lives will be there.

    Pro ... Qld is awesome!!

    Devastated. My iPod dock broke. I use it at least once a day. Looks like its back to head phones. *sob*

    ... That's roughly my budget for just having a larger wedding at home..
    Pros for qld:
    Take kids to qld
    Qld!
    Dreamworld
    What df wants

    Cons:
    Long drive
    Not everyone we would like to be there may be able to
    Expensive
    I don't like beaches
    Organising details from afar
    Friends that have had destination weddings have also found that those that matter will always find a way to make it. So dont have a wedding to please others. Do it for you and your partner.

    This is true. We would only invite family anyway. I'm sure my family would all try to come. Df's oldest sister would. His second sister would want to but probably not afford it. His parents would be 50:50. They're not exactly known for their fairness with their children and grandchildren, and clearly favour two siblings over the other. This is kind of a major worry.
    As would be trying to organise the wedding. I was looking at elopement packages but they will only do up to 10 guests max. Including kids we could have 20.

    Sad. I just sold my DS's swing because he has pretty much outgrown it and it's too big and bulky to keep around the house for the next bub. DS watched as we walked it out the door with a look on his face that said 'but mama, where are you taking my toy?'

    His expression killed me and it also has marked a point that made me realise that my little baby isn't such a little baby anymore. 😢

    I am over applying for jobs. I have been looking for 6 months and have only had one interview. Some places have even said I have too much experience in the role. .... sometimes choosing to be a SAHM really sucks as no one thinks I have the ability to work now apparently I am incapable of doing anything

    I say go for QLD - seriously if I could have a do over I would 100% have just run off with DH. The only time I have ever heard an elopement go wrong is the family and friends being a bit shirted about it - but you are telling your family so that is a moot point. you are paying so you are deciding on what you want. It is yours and your hubbies day.

    Our parents put in almost as much as we did so had to accommodate them too and I was so strung out and anxious about all the people that I was overly emotional throughout my entire ceremony (crying) I didn't sleep a wink the night before and then I felt really ill at the reception and spent the night in our suite - by myself with nothing but the toilet bowl for company!

    Trust your gut love and make it special for your little family, your other family will understand (or they should)

    Well my thinking is this: we have a very small amount of money in the bank that is meant to be for a house deposit. As it currently stands, we maaaaay be able to get a house on shared property with my parents. So we may not need the deposit. Of course this automatically goes towards a wedding.
    Df has had a big fancy wedding before, he isn't so keen on doing it again.
    I just want to feel and look beautiful, and have some lovely photos and share the day with my family. I couldn't give a stuff about my friends- I'm sick of them organising things without me.
    Df and I also talk a lot about taking the kids to the GC and dreamworld etc.
    so, what I'm thinking is we could drive, an possibly mum and dad drive too with their caravan. Stop overnight on the way to qld and stay in caravan park. Stay 2 or 3 nights on GC and show the kids what it's like. Other family most welcome to join us- especially to go to theme parks etc. drive up to maybe Noosa and get married there. Mum and dad take kids home after 1 or 2 nights in their dual cab. (Seems like a great idea but maybe travelling with my kids would drive them nuts haha!) otherwise we all come home as a family again.
    So including the 4 days of travel (2 up, 2 down) it would be a 8-9 day trip...
    It would also give df and I a holiday even if its with the kids. If we married at home (and I still like it as an option) there would most likely be no honeymoon or holiday.
