Some things to Keep In Mind for Wedding Destinations Etiquette
It is common etiquette to pay for your bridesmaids’ and groomsmen’s accommodations. This may be important when you are considering how many attendants to have.
You are not however responsible for paying for your guests’ airfare and accommodations. Keep in mind though that while you’re saving money by having a destination wedding, your guests have to pay a considerable amount of money to travel to your wedding destination.
Therefore, it’s a very nice touch if you surprise them with a nice gift for their hotel room, a gift basket or local souvenirs. Another option is to plan a fun outing or lunch for all of your guests before the wedding to let them know you appreciate them coming all that way to your wedding destination for you!
