Just some thoughts.
I think the biggest factor in deciding whether to have one of not from the family angle is, how important is it to you that your family be there? If it is extremely important then you need to find out if your close family is willing and able to travel. Also, a huge thing to consider is if you are counting on your family for financial support. If not and you and FI plan on paying for the wedding, you can decide on wherever you please. If you hope for family support, then it really is dependent on if the involved parties are supportive of the idea of a DW. They can be more cost effective because of the smaller guest list but travel and all that adds up.

So we figured that if it was already going to cost each family member around $500-600 dollars to get here, then doubling that cost for a full week vacation wasn't so much to ask. We were lucky that both sides of our family and all our friends knew we wanted a destination wedding, even before we got engaged, so it was just a matter of when and where.
I have to second the comments above though that all this will also depend on how important it is for your family (or other specific guests) to be at your wedding in the first place.
