Further, if you get more generous and plan to pay for the guests stay also, you are sure going to get a big hole in your pocket.
Absence of friends: Most of the people have advanced holiday plans. Guest lists for destination wedding is already small and then missing people from that small list too will spoil all the fun. If you are making the traveling arrangements at your expenses, it can also be wastage of money, when people do not turn up for the wedding.
Huge crowd: Planning destination wedding at popular location might have direct impact on the quality of services provided at the venue and presence of huge unexpected crowd. Your plans of beach wedding can completely be ruined by the huge crowd gathered there to celebrate the New Year eve.
Difficulty in finding vendors: You may also face difficulty in finding right wedding planner, wedding decorator and other vendors, as most of them might have their own vacation plans too. Sometimes, there are chances that you have to pay more to hire destination wedding planner during the busy season, as they might have other contracts for Christmas and New Year events.
