Why did you choose to have a Destination Wedding rather than a traditional one?

We are both very busy people and want to combine our wedding with our honeymoon without any distractions ;-)

We both have family scattered all over the country, so people would still have to travel and we would be dealing with hotels, rental cars, etc. anyway. This way we can all spend some time together and actually get to visit with our guests.
Even though it will be a DW I'm still having my big white dress, bridesmaids, etc.
I truly believe that a DW was the best decision (compromise) for us.

So instead of coming to the US where we live, we chose a nice location in Mexico.
I mean, where else can you get excellent Mexican food and maricahis?!

1. My extended family lives halfway across the country, and my grandparents are unable to travel.
2. Even though it's costing us nearly $10K, we're getting a lot for our money - wedding of our dreams AND an awesome honeymoon rolled into one!
3. We get to share our special day in paradise with those closest to us.
4. All the kids in our respective immediate families are grown and it's difficult to plan family vacations - our DW was the perfect excuse for everyone to get away together!
I'm loving the planning of a DW. I can only imagine how many other things I would have on my plate if I'd had one locally.
