I think what use to happen was just a few of them would run off to get married away. It has now turned into a grand event with up to just as many people one would normally invite to their wedding/reception at home.
They are also much cheaper, if you use the packages provided and not add on or upgrade. The more people that come down...it seems to add up rather quickly since you have to pay for additional seats (some places) then what is provided and the dinners can be pricier then a caterer at home (some locations) It is all up to what the couple and what they are looking for. They can be really cheap.

I guess the one thing IMO that could make it less expenisive is a smaller attendance by guests. Also, the choice of the destiination might be less expensive (vendors, food, drink, etc.) than a wedding at home (depending on where home is).

mexico is waaayyy cheaper than SF..
$44 per person instead of $120 at home
no $5,000 site fee!
my wedding is in beautiful cabo...so i spent $1100 (or so) on flowers instead of $6000
also, we had a whole week together with multiple events planned:
- welcome dinner
- girls spa day
- guys deep sea fishing
- snorkel/sailing trip
- wedding & reception
- brunch with the newlyweds
all for $14,000..
just a reg. wedding in sf at an ok place was $30,000+ (my friends all paid $50,000-80,000)

Now, once you start having as many people to your DW as you would to your hometown wedding, you really aren't saving money.
The other way to talk about it is in terms of VALUE. My sister had a wedding in our hometown for $20K. She had 150 ppl, decent food, and a 3 hour celebration.
I had a wedding in Mexico for $20K and had 50 people, 2 nights of great food and drink, daytime activities, and 3 DAYS of celebrating.
How would you rather spend $20K?
