I’m having a Destination Wedding and do not expect a present from anyone. We created a honeymoon registry for those who want to give something but having everyone there is more than we could as for!

I think it’s nice to get something small, if you can afford it; if I was going to a Destination Wedding I would probably get them a card, and take photos with my DSLR, and make a nice album for them after the wedding (ie something small and personal that doesn’t cost too much). I wouldn’t get an expensive gift, and would be peeved if I was expected to; I don’t earn much, and for me the cost of attending would be all I could afford.

I don’t think people who have Destination Wedding should expect gifts; the gift should be the fact your guests have paid a lot of money to come, and also sacrificed their holiday to come. While I would go if a friend had a destination wedding, I would be a little peeved at having to use it as my main holiday, as my annual trip with my OH is one of the only luxuries I allow myself, and sacrificing that would be a big thing for both of us.

I agree!  As someone else who’s having a Destination Wedding I dont expect $$$ but I would be upset if I didnt get a card with a sweet message.
