"Luckily, the event is not by the Parkway, but I'm worried about
guests being able to get there," Ellen said. "When the couple picked
their date and location, it didn't occur to them that Made in America
would be in town."

TO YOUR 2020 WEDDING DESTINATION

Consider any pre-scheduled, large events, and don't forget about
holidays that might make it difficult for guests to attend or make the
cost of travel and lodging more expensive.
FACTORING IN DIVERSITY
Physicians practicing in the U.S. tend to be a pretty diverse group,
and many guest lists include relatives and friends who will be traveling
not just from another town or state, but another country.
This can be a factor when considering wedding venues, guest accommodations and transportation, advised Sharon Pellechia, owner
of the Lehigh Valley-based An Affair to Remember by Sharon.
Incorporating some traditions or customs that reflect the cultural
background of an international bride or groom can add another level
of meaning to a wedding.

"It's really nice when someone wants to include some of their
cultural customs," Pellechia said. "I'm always glad when that's added
to a wedding."
ESTABLISHING A GUEST LIST
Your wedding budget really will dictate the number of guests you'll
have, as about half of total wedding costs typically go toward food
and drink for guests.

ADVERTISE IN

According to tripsavvy.com's Wedding Statistics and Honeymoon
Facts & Figures, the average number of wedding guests is 136, with
a per-guest cost of $268. If you do the math, that comes to $36,448.
CHOOSING A VENUE
The Lehigh Valley and surrounding area are rich with a variety of
wedding venues. There are those with great historical significance, such as
the Bank Street Annex in Easton. There are beautiful country locations
and outdoor wedding venues, barns, posh country clubs or hotels.
Susan Norcross, owner and wedding director of The Styled Bride,
Philadelphia, said that while venues for physician weddings vary, she
notices a trend toward locations that have the capacity to accommodate
various events.
"Doctors might gravitate toward an upscale hotel that can host the
rehearsal dinner, welcome drinks and brunch all in one location,"
Norcross said. "Many of them don't have a lot of time, so it's nice to
have everyone in one place for the weekend."
