Those reasons are exactly why we choose a destination wedding. =)

As far as how do you tell people you are having a destination wedding with family only I would say word of mouth. If you send out “hey we got engaged” anything, people might take it as a “we are going to get invited to the wedding”. After you get back send out annoucments saying something about a private/intaimate ceremony with family.

And you are always going to get people who are going to be upset that they can’t come to your wedding. I know you said you didn’t want a second reception (BTW great choice on that!) but what about a cookout or something simple after you are back. We smoothed over feelings by having a second reception and in all honesty we could have (and should have) had a backyard bbq. Everyone would have been just as happy with a whole lot less work and money. Everyone just wanted a way to celebrate with us, even if it was just a bbq and some beer.
