Would You Consider Having a Destination Wedding?

The travel industry has become sadly deflated right along with the shrinking economy, but there's one market within the industry that has projected growth. According to a new (self-serving) survey by Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine, the destination wedding market will rake in $16 billion this year, up from $13 billion in 2008.

The magazine's editor says the average number of guests at destination weddings is about a third of the average traditional wedding, and fewer guests could make the destination event the cheaper of the two. Of course this isn't always the case, and often the guests' own expenses increase when they're attending a destination wedding.
