      1) always pictured a beach wedding

      2) keeps it as an intimate affair, and totally fun

      3) thought it would be a lot cheaper - key word is "thought"

      - I feel like it will eliminate a lot of the invite/guest list drama, ie: parents say we have to invite cousins x,y,z that we haven't seen in 15+ years.

      - And as part of above, I feel like the people who really want to be there, will make an effort and a commitment.

      - And also feel it will eliminate a lot of drama my friends went through (although I'm sure I will have my own).

      - We live in NYC and it is SUPER crazy expensive to have a wedding here, and I think it will be a little cheaper.

      - I'm am, but I'm not into a lot of the traditional stuff... like a wedding dress. I can't see myself spending over like $200... so this gives me an excuse to wear something a little more casual.

      - I LOVE traveling, but never been here before.

      - I wasn't super crazy excited about planning anything here, but got into it with a DW.

      Our guest list was over 200 guests. Having a wedding in the states is ridiculously overpriced.

      My reasons are similar!


      ~ With a local wedding there is much more obligation to invite more people


      ~ Better chance of a majority of the invites to show up (even if you can do without it) whereas there is less of a turnout for a DW - saving you money and making it more intimate


      ~ Doing a wedding/reception is SOOO expensive in NY - a DW is more expensive than I thought but still doesn't come even close to the cost of planning something at home. 


      ~ So much more planning goes into a local wedding - more stress!


      ~ It's one day/ several hours of celebration locally instead of a celebration/vacation for everyone


      ~ We love the beach :-)

        In destination wedding, There is no family drama because they both meet on the mutual groud.

        It helps to reduce the guests list.

        can enjoy quality of time with loved ones.

        Theu're perfect for second marriage and cost effective.
