@loveyes: I thought about this same exact thing.  SO & I are planning on having a Destination Wedding (whenever he decides to PROPOSE, Lol) and we’re only planning on having immediate family and a few friends.  Some of my friends will be able to pay their own way with no prob, but there’s a few that may need some help.  I want to make sure that no one’s offended though.  So I will definitely be looking forward to hear ideas on this one..

We are still in the early planning phase, so my suggestions are just hypotheticals…

Gift of airline “bucks” – If you can’t drive to your Destination Wedding (if you can drive, work on the carpooling!), maybe give a christmas/b-day present of an airline “gift card” to the friends that will need it.  

Sharing “hotel suites” – we maybe be getting a few rooms/suites and we will ask people who need help to share with others.

I guess the overall theme I am shooting for is that, if they need help, we will give it to them, but it won’t be “top notch” (i.e. our friends who can afford to pay on their own will have their own room, etc, while the grad school friends will be bunking together).  And to be honest, the friends that need help will be happy to share a room, whereas the friends/family that can afford it will be much happier in a room of their own.
