I have weddings on the brain! My son is having a traditional, in-town wedding, which I am familiar with after attending many of them. His future sister-in-law is starting to plan her destination wedding for next spring. I have never been to a destination wedding, so I am curious... Are destination weddings almost always just for close family and friends? Do most invited guests attend or do many decline due to distance or finances? If you had a destination wedding and had to do it again, would you still do it the same way or opt for something more traditional? Although my daughter is far from getting married (she needs to find the right man first!), she has mentioned that she likes the idea of a destination wedding. I'd love to hear some pros and cons.
