I always wondered about this.
My bestfriend in High school was half Syrian half Belgian and her parents held 2 marriages, one in Syria and one in Belgium, but her parents are rich and they were already doctors when they got married I don't think the average couple can afford 2 weddings, one is already expensive.
It's the best option in my opinion but it needs a lot of money.
Getting married in the country we meet is another option but if none of the families lives there it would kinda suck.

Yeah no way I'm doing two weddings back to back lol, lot of work and the second wedding would really be kind of meaningless it would lack the spark or the special meaning that the first had and would just feel kind of redundant and it would also be a pain to the people attending probably. Like I don't think most people would want to do 2 weddings.
Honestly I would do the sensible and logical thing me and my wife to be would talk to both my parents and her parents and probably both together at some point. And discuss possible locations and after deliberation and possible debate, we would all agree on a mutual location that would appease all parties. Maybe even mix traditions in from both my culture and her culture.
Or another thing I would do is maybe the first time we could do the wedding her way according to her culture and then when our wedding anniversary comes around instead of just celebrating it, we could renew our vows then that time we would do the wedding (renewal of vows) my way or if we did the first wedding my way we would do the wedding (renewal of vows) her way.
That way we would each be able to do things the way we want but they would be far enough apart that it wouldn't be a pain in the behind or to expensive for the people actually attending as well as not being overly expensive for me and my wife since you don't want to be broke or in debt right when your married.
You also have to take into account that the vast majority of people are not filthy rich or even regular rich, so it would be impractical for most soon to be spouses as well as an inconvenience for the people attending since they would probably have to fly out, rent hotels, get a wedding present and all that.
That's how I would do it anyway all about communication, being thoughtful and compromising for your spouse, that's the recipe to a healthy marriage or wedding in this case lol.3

I actually randomly thought about this the other day since my boyfriend is Canadian. I also thought about it a few months ago when I was waitressing at a wedding, where the bride was Finnish and the groom Danish.
If I ever get married to a foreigner, I don't think I'll want 2 weddings. Like the thought of just one wedding is enough. The wedding would be pretty small to begin with since I'd only want my closest friends and family. So hopefully his family and friends would be able to afford to fly in.0
