Actually, I knew that a lot of people we really love wouldn't be able to make it to our destination wedding for various reason (cost-concerns during this horrendous economy, health concerns, etc). So, it seems that we are actually going to be spending MORE on the AHR than the wedding itself, but that is my choosing. If that's not what you want, than by all means, you shouldn't do it.
We were just thinking that if those we would have liked to attend weren't able to get there, then WE would try to bring some water and Caribbean flavor closer to THEM! We plan on booking a 3 hour cruise on a party yacht, showing our wedding DVD of the ceremony, and having a steel drum band and Caribbean food so they can feel like they were there! Hopefully it will transport them, so that the waters of Baltimore's Inner Harbor will feel like the Caribbean!

We are having one for the same reasons others have said...there are some friends and family whom we really do want to celebrate with that just cannot be there. Our is going to be pretty informal though. Cocktails, late lunch (like you would normally get at a wedding) and dancing and laughing all night long. At least that is how we hope it goes!

By the sounds of things it's going to be more hassle than it's worth and you're not going to invite too many people anyway.
Why don't you organise a meal for when you do get back for those people that you do want to see? If you have different people from different groups that you don't want mixing, you can just organise different meals. That way as well, you don't pay for everyone....just ask them if they'd like to meet up and go for a meal when you're back so you can all see each other - all it's going to cost you is the price of the meal for you and your hubby....
Just another idea
