It's always been by dream to have the destination wedding with the beautiful beach pictures, so we have decided to do exactly that.
The only thing is, we can't really afford to do a week at the resort, and a week for the honeymoon, so... what we are thinking about doing is having a small, intimate ceremony back home, with just parents and siblings, then we would do a symbolic ceremony on Isla Mujeres with just the two of us.
We're really not into the big wedding/reception idea. This is my second wedding, so it's just not important to me. It's really just about us, but I do want to share it with our family.
My thought is to do the small ceremony at home, and just have dinner at a restaurant after. It would be a definite break from tradition, no music, no garter toss, etc.
Has anyone done this?
