Response: Destination weddings are increasingly common. They are usually small, intimate affairs, often held on the beach, not large full-blown weddings. The best way to handle the situation is to invite only the parents and siblings and maybe a few close friends to the ceremony and then have a large reception back home. In your daughters case, they could have two receptions. Most destination wedding facilities provide a video of the ceremony, which can be shown at the receptions along with the wedding pictures.
If your daughter really wants to invite everyone to the wedding, then it is the guests decision whether to attend or not. She might send out save the date cards several months in advance to alert guests to her wedding plans.
