One of my cousins rented out a summer camp, and did a three day wedding. It was destination in that people slept over, but many people could drive to it. It gave the focused time, but people also had the option of coming just for the wedding itself, if they had scheduling conflicts.

I want destination, he wants large party. That’s the same as my Fiance and I. We ended up deciding on a picture-perfect type of destination wedding private ceremony, and a large reception party back home that is budget-friendly and fun.

futureseh :  Make a wedding weekend. Friday night bon fire, Saturday wedding with a big party, and sunday brunch. You can rent out a farm or camp for 3 days and have all the family that is able to come stay, then invite all the friends to just the wedding to party!

I was going to say the same thing as PP- I went to a wedding at a summer camp before the kids arrived for the summer. It was on a lake and they provided canoes, morning yoga, archery, sports courts/fields, bonfires! We stayed in the bunks which isn’t the most glamorous but we were able to change into comfty clothes and spend all day/night hanging out! No worrying about people having to drive to a hotel or home!

I was also going to suggest a wedding weekend where you you can schedule events with selected guests.  Such as a rehearsal dinner, prepping the day of, a brunch the day after.  My Fiance and I too struggled with what we wanted. I wanted to elope, he wanted the big party and we settled on a 20-30 guests destination wedding.  That was our compromise.
