Q: What do we do about the people we don't invite to our destination wedding or who can't attend?

A: Throw a party for the stay-at-homes when you return. That way, they'll have a chance to participate in the festivities, and you will have an opportunity to share photos or videos from your trip. A hometown reception is also a great excuse to bust out your bridal gown for an encore performance. (If it's got a train, bustle it.)
