Hmm, I’m not quite sure. I think the main goal though, is for the people who aren’t going to the destination wedding to feel involved and not like they are completely missing out, while making sure those who are going to the destination don’t feel like they are missing out because you already got married as well.

If you do have a small ceremony wedding before the destination wedding, definitely do a vow reknewal or marriage blessing at the destination or vice-versa. I’m not sure it’s really necessary for you to inform people about this (I just don’t know the ettiquette there) but I would suggest you make your bridal party/immediate family well aware of this so that they can be prepared to answer any questions that may come up.

Good luck!

I think an afternoon ceremony is a really sweet idea or you can even have a post reception after you come back for those who couldn’t make it!  You can put a slideshow up of all the pictures during your destination wedding so other guests can feel like they at least got to be there in spirit.
