Q: How do we politely let guests who come to our destination wedding know that we want to be alone after the reception?

A: You can't very well demand that everyone fly home after they've come so far—know that most people will respect your privacy, even if they're staying on a few days after the event. If you're really concerned about hangers-on, head to another place. Some hotel companies, like Sandals, SuperClubs and Wyndham, have sister resorts that you can combine in a single package.
