Absolutely. Some couples choose to have the best of both worlds; both a land-based and a destination “symbolic” wedding. Those who choose this option either have a full-out land-based wedding or a simpler inexpensive wedding in their locality followed by the more exotic destination “symbolic” wedding & honeymoon for memories sake.
Also, with respect to foreign country destinations, symbolic weddings are less costly, and a great choice for busy couples that prefer to bypass gathering and completing the documentation required for a legally-binding ceremony in a foreign country.
