Exactly!  Which is why I had my wedding where I wanted and invited only the 50 nearest and dearest.

I disagree that just because someone might not drive 8 hours to a wedding that you don’t want them there.  There were plenty of people at my wedding (1 hour drive) that I was thrilled were able to be there and share in the day who I would bet would not have driven 8 hours because they have kids, work, whatever.  People have lives and just because they might not do a whole weekend trip for me doesn’t mean they aren’t important to me!! 

It all depends on what you want – if it is to be surrounded by super close family and friends, then you either only invite those people (a la Niki) or have a destination wedding (which a 4 hour drive might qualify as).  If you want to share the occasion with the many other special people in your life, make it easier for them to attend and have it in town.  There is no one-size-fits all answer.

FIrst and foremost, its is your wedding.  You shouldn’t decide the style of your wedding based on whether or not people will show up.  You have to go with your vision, and it sounds like what you really and truly want is the beach wedding.  I really think that if someone is not going to go to your wedding, they aren’t going to go no matter where it is.  I go to every wedding I am invited to.  I may complain a little, but I still go because I want to see them get married.  People can carpool, share rooms, etc….or liek others mentioned you could rent a bus.  Just make sure you and your Fiance are happy first.
