I am curious as to what you define as destination.
Do you look only at how far you have to travel? Or does it depend on where the b&g live?
How many hours away do you consider to be destination?

To me destination wedding means that the bride and groom and more than 50% of the guests have to travel a significant distance (3+ hours) to get to the wedding.

I consider it anywhere you have to get a room and sleep over afterwards (too long or far to drive at night if it ends late, etc).
I used to think it was only if it involved air travel, but not so much anymore.

To me, a destination wedding is a wedding held at a location/city somewhere other than A) where the B&G live or B) where the B or G are from.
For example – both DH and I and over 75% of our guests had to travel and get hotels for our wedding in IN (as we now live in TX). But I was born and raised in IN until I went to college and most of my side of the family still lives there so IMO, having a wedding in IN is not a destination wedding since it is where I am from.
