Though it may sound a little stupid, but regular wedding promises you more gifts. These weddings usually include a long guest list and thus promises a larger number of gifts.  So if you are the one who is a freak for gifts,  then a regular wedding is definitely a better option for you.

A regular wedding includes a huge guest list. More the guests, more you have to make the arrangements for larger gatherings. This will result in an additional headcount price. You need to be ready to serve more guests. You will have to book a bigger wedding venue to accommodate more people. Similarly, you will have to spend more in other arrangements like catering, return gifts, etc. to cater to a bigger guest list. To add to your overall cost a regular wedding also adds up to honeymoon cost, which destination wedding could cut off.

Stress

Destination Wedding

Regular weddings are usually accompanied with a lot of stress. Whether it is from being a good host to your guests or making all the arrangements for the wedding. It brings a lot of stress to the bride and groom as it often takes extra work unlike a destination wedding where you just visit the wedding location and everything is served to you. Regular weddings include taking care of accommodation and travel arrangements for your family and relatives that can be a little stressful at times.

A Destination Wedding is generally cheaper than a regular wedding. Though a Destination wedding may sound a way too expensive when you consider all the major factors you may find that it is much more practical and cheaper than a traditional wedding. Destination wedding serves the dual purpose of both wedding and honeymoon. Generally, the couple chooses their preferred honeymoon destination as their wedding destination also. Thus, it saves a considerable amount of money. Also, Destination Weddings are accomplished in the presence of fewer people, which saves a lot of money that you would otherwise have to spend for a bigger venue, and for other arrangements.
