A: Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and the general Sahaba with their families (with the exception of those family members who remained on kufr) made hijrat to Madinah Tayyibah. Hence, the nikaahs took place in Madinah Tayyibah and their was no need to travel abroad to visit in-laws etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
