I’ve never attended a destination wedding. Depending on who’s getting married and my relationship to them, I may go. I’m finally in a financial position where I could do something like this if it comes up

lol mte. I have fun at most weddings but it seems like they've all gotten so extra that they're more tiresome than anything else. Weddings don't need to be 6 hours long.

my uncle is basically my hero, he and his wife got married in super secret and then he sent everyone an email saying hey guys, we got married, we're having a party at our house on this date if you want to come, we don't want any presents, thanks. a lot of the family were super mad they didn't have a real reception but i couldn't stop laughing

Weddings are for the two people to decide what sort of party they want. Its not rude. You wanna get married in Costa Rica, at a circus, skydiving, whatever? You do you. Doesnt mean Ill be attending, but if its what you want... go for it. They aren't obligated to have anyone there (except for.. like.. a witness technically). All these random rules around weddings is such nonsense.

IA. We can argue if it's an event ~for the family or it's for the couple but ultimately it's to celebrate the couple and it's up to them to pick and choose everything. I don't like some wedding things/customs that are popular but it's not my business to say anything about it when it's not my day.

It's a different thing if the guests are expected to do this or that, to pay for this or that.

Mte, last destination wedding i was invited to was in new york and it looked AMAZING. I couldn't go because i was scared to bring a baby on a transatlantic flight but DAMN, just go or don't.

This. Destination weddings aren't rude, but you should be realistic if you're planning one and not get hurt feelings if people can't make it. Not everyone can afford to just drop everything and fly to wherever.

My sister’s putting together a destination wedding for Greece in about 2 years and I can’t wait lol. She doesn’t care if a lot of people don’t show up, it’s why we’re having the engagement party here for them at least. The way she sees it, the only ones who matter will be with us in Greece and I’m fine with that. Shit won’t have to start at 6am!!!

People get very sensitive if you suggest it's kind of douchey in my experience :X

The only ppl I know who have done them have been real princesses tbh. And I have not attended.
