It’s not too late to have a Destination Wedding. If you’ve only put down a deposit for a venue, you’ll really only be losing money on that.

But I do want to know what’s your reason for wanting a DW? If you’ve envisioned a church and reception at a venue, what’s making you change your mind now? That’s not to say you can’t have that vision for a Destination Wedding but did you and Fiance discuss what type of Destination Wedding you would like (at the beach, mountains, another state)?

I say go for it!  What type of location were you looking for?  Is price one of your deciding factors?  If you are looking for just relaxing on the beach with some drinks I would suggest looking at the USVI.  My sister was married on St Thomas and loved it.

If you are looking from something with a mix of laying out at the beach and adventure I would suggest the Riviera Maya or the Dominican Republic. (BTW these are the two least expensive locations to have a wedding.)  We love the Riviera Maya! 

Tell us some of what your looking for and I bet we can help you find an awesome spot.  I spent close to 6 months research locations. 😉

Go for the Destination Wedding, if you don’t, you’ll always wish you would have.  I just invited both sides of the extended families and close friends.  Many decided to join us, at their own expense. 

You can still keep the venue and have a reception when you get back.  That way no one is left out, and those that can’t afford to come to the wedding can celebrate with you at the reception back home.

I agree with adias.angel on something like Riviera Maya, it’s not terribly expensive, and Destination Wedding are kinda their thing there.  I’m getting married in Belize in March and everyone going is super excited!  It’s definitely a chance of a lifetime.
