It would be great to get married at home but I have a huge family and will more than likely upset people somewhere along the line by doing this. If we did get married here, it would be without a doubt, on the Wairarapa coast where we often go during the summer. We are instead having immediate family, mums, dads, siblings, nieces, nephews and our very closest friends (10 in total) coming to our wedding in Fiji and they all have ample time to save. There are approx 45 guests coming to Fiji with us and we are paying for our parents to flights also. Most of our families (mostly mine) have never been abroad before so it will be a great experience for them.
