My FI and I have recently decided that we will have a destination wedding in Jamaica which I am super excited about! However, I'm curious if there are any other brides or brides-to-be who have done or plan to do the same thing. We are on a tight budget and after doing the math we came to realization that having a wedding and reception with 150+ of our family and friends is not possible without spending a small fortune that we really don't have. But now I feel bad that most of our family and friends won't be able to make it to Jamaica. It just comes down to either doing the ceremony and reception in our "home town" so everyone can attend but having to cut extreme corners in order to stay at a reasonable budget or not having a wedding at all. The research I've done seems to prove that having a destination wedding may actually be cheaper and it will still allow us to have a very beautiful event but with only a few family and friends. I've always wanted to have a dream wedding but I hate that all of my family won't be able to attend. I just know that a wedding on the beach would be even dreamier than I have imagined it would be, but I'm so torn right now, any advice?
