Wedding Etiquette: Can We Have Two Wedding Ceremonies?

Q:

I met my future husband online, and we come from different parts of the country. My family and friends can't come to a wedding in his area and his can't come to one in mine. Would it be appropriate to have two weddings, one in each hometown?

A:

It would be completely fine to have more than one wedding celebration -- though it's too bad your families can't meet, it's a sure thing that both groups will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
