I won't even begin to compare a destination wedding vs local weddings. They're so different.
If you're very traditional, then a local wedding is probably the best choice for you.
But if you're open-minded, then at the very least, you should consider a destination wedding.
In a local wedding, it's all over in one day, with a guest list that's probably much longer than you ever imagined. Still, some more distant friends or colleagues will be disappointed.
In a destination wedding, your guest list ( and subsequently wedding dinner and party budget ) will be significantly lower, and the experience will be more like a day-long highlight of a short break vacation.
At home, you'll probably just do a drink in a local pub for all your more distant family and friends.
