    I picked home wedding because I would not put the cost of a Destination Wedding on anyone.  Especially these days.  If I did a Destination Wedding, I would elope just me and the hubs.  I would do the home wedding and then honeymoon in Fiji.

    I voted for home, because getting married without my family friends there would always be something I regret (this is why I would never consider a destination wedding for myself). However not everyone has those same feelings, so I’m not sure how much that opinion is worth.

    Fiji is absolutely beautiful and the perfect location to really start your lifelong journey together…..Destination Wedding wise, I’d say it’s one of the best ways to go! I’m also planning our dream honeymoon…….excited!

    Have a local wedding, and go on your dream honeymoon to the US. I am soooo so glad we had a local wedding – in spite of the craziness of planning a large local wedding, on our wedding day, it meant the world to me to be surrounded by every single person who’s important to my DH and I. It’s the only time in your life when you’ll have the opportunity to have all of those people together, in one place. Also- if you do plan a honeymoon to the US, hit us up – there’s plenty of us American bees who can give you heaps of advice and US travel tips πŸ™‚

    Depending on how close knit your family and friends are, I would consider doing it at home. The reason being that it’s a lot of money for people to travel – and I would hate to put that burden on my friends and relatives. I would just have a local wedding and then go off on an awesome honeymoon.

    I have a couple of friends that are quite close in our group and they are planning a Mexico wedding next year, but I already know I won’t be able to go. $1500 per person to go is way too much. I just do not have the cash flexibility for that, and very few people do.

    This is my opinion though and what I would do, so take it with a grain of salt πŸ™‚

    I am planning a wedding right now, and we are doing it in our home state. My Fiance has a lot of family and really wanted them in attendance. I would have been happy with a small wedding, because I only wanted immediate family and close friends, but we comprimised! πŸ™‚

    If having all your friends and family in attendance is important to you, I would go with the third option. I wouldn’t bank on guests giving you enough money for your honeymoon, only because you never know what you are going to get as gifts for your wedding.
