Quick Destination Wedding Tip

If you are planning to have a destination wedding because you want to keep the wedding small and intimate then don't invite more people than those few you want to include. Never assume that because you're having a destination people won't travel to it. They may have always wanted to go to that location and your wedding is the perfect excuse to go.

The general rule is that you are safe to assume that 10% of your invited guests will send their regrets, but when it comes to a destination wedding I recommend you only send invites to those must-haves and not take a chance on inviting others who you don't really want there but feel that you have to invite them.

The good thing about a destination wedding and guest lists is that your family and friends will probably assume you are only inviting a limited number and won't be insulted when they don't receive an invite in the mail.

Good advice. We had a destination wedding and this is definitely true.

We are having a DW b/c we love to travel and we have a favorite spot. We invited about 135 people (we love "the more the merrier") and we have about 80 people attending. It will be a BLAST!

We are having our dream wedding in Hawaii on Oahu. It will definitely be our dream wedding come true, something we have always wanted. But you're right, it is something you can't really do all by yourself...to have your dream hawaii wedding you need a liasion...like dreamweddingshawaii.com!
