    To me destination wedding means that the bride and groom and more than 50% of the guests have to travel a significant distance (3+ hours) to get to the wedding.

    I consider it anywhere you have to get a room and sleep over afterwards (too long or far to drive at night if it ends late, etc).

    I used to think it was only if it involved air travel, but not so much anymore.

    To me, a destination wedding is a wedding held at a location/city somewhere other than A) where the B&G live or B) where the B or G are from.

    For example – both Darling Husband and I and over 75% of our guests had to travel and get hotels for our wedding in IN (as we now live in TX).  But I was born and raised in IN until I went to college and most of my side of the family still lives there so IMO, having a wedding in IN is not a destination wedding since it is where I am from.
