The best thing about a destination wedding is that it will save you a lot of money! You do not have to invite 100 people and feed and entertain them. Not to say that some couples don't do just that. But with a destination wedding you have the option of just getting away by yourselves and actually being able to enjoy the whole process. Sometimes with families that are somewhat alienated this is the best option. I always ask my couples why they chose a destination wedding and most of the time it is because one or both sets of parents were divorced and not getting a long. Sometimes just the process of planning a large wedding, not to mention the expense, drives couple to just give it up and run away to be married.
Whatever the reason, the couple is usually pleased to find out that they now have the time and the space to enjoy this special day without worrying about the guests or relatives.
