I didn't do one, I just didn't want to deal with it - it defeated the purpose of getting married away for me. There are lots of conversations about this in the AHR (At Home Reception) sub-forum ... here it is ...

We also decided not to do it as the main reason that we were having a destination wedding was to save money. We did however do an engagment party and invited all of our friends and family so those who could not make it got a chance to celebrate with us.

I can just speak for my experience. Brides that have a destination wedding, may be the 70% of them, have a little reception for friends that couldn't make it.
may be nothing big, a dinner, little party, where they show the experience they lived back in Mexico. Usually this dinner is one to two months after the destination wedding.

I didn't have one after my wedding. If a friend has gotten married here in Wisconsin, she doesn't throw a second smaller wedding for all of those who can't make it, so I didn't feel like I should either.
I had my wedding, I paid for an amazing reception. If they couldn't make it, that's really sad, but they understood.

We are not going to do one, but we are going to have a more casual get together afterwards with everyone who couldn't make it.
