When we were married, we compared both and our biggest issue was how many people we wanted to be present with us for the experience. - "the experience" being the operative word - not ceremony, because a destination wedding might allow less to attend, but it allows more than just the wedding to be shared with those most dear. Everyone will recommend price comparison and inclusive VS exclusive packages, but with today's market and variety of options, prices can be made similar depending upon flexibility of wants and needs. With that, it all came back to the number of people, how much we wanted to share, and how much alone vs shared time we desired.

Hope this helps.
What are the factors you are considering? How long in advance are you planning? What was the wedding of your dreams when you were small? What parts of your dream would you like to still be part of your big day? Do religious or cultural customs factor into your ceremony? Is budget important? - strictly or flexibly? These are all additional factors my husband and I considered.
We finally focused on what our wedding meant to us and what it symbolized to us - how much it meant what it communicated to others...
We budgeted strictly and cut our guest list down to only those dearest for our religious ceremony on the water, but a budget friendly more open guest list fun evening garden wedding as well. Sometimes it's hard to only chose one.
What do you want to do?
