Destination Weddings: How Many Guests?

Dec 18, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Curious about the number of guests typically attending these destination events? You may be surpised to hear that it is approaching 50. That’s significant, because just 4 or 5 years ago the typcial destination wedding had a guest list of just 10 – 20 people.

You can invite as many or as few people as you want to your destination wedding. Just keep one thing in mind: There are likely to be people on your guest list who will be unable to attend due to the expense involved or the logistics of arranging a jaunt away from home. People have limited vacation time, they may need significant lead time to book their vacations, or they may not be able to arrange to be away from home on the dates you’ve selected for a wide variety of other reasons. Also keep in mind that your idea of the dream destination may not match theirs, so if you are expecting them to pay their own way, they many not be willing to invest their limited vacation budget into the vacation of your choice. And that’s perfectly valid and entirely understandable, so don’t hold it against them or take offence.

Before you get too far down the road in planning your destination wedding, ask yourself if you are still going to be happy if some of the people on your guest list are unable to attend. What is none of them decided to come – would you still be happy if it was just you and your sweetie celebrating your marriage alone together in that exotic locale? Be prepared for these possibilities before proceeding.
