I’ve been engaged for 9 months and have the venue and all vendors booked for this coming April except now i want to cancel everything! not the marriage just the wedding. I had a hard time deciding wether to elope or have a traditional wedding. I choose the wedding b/c i felt i would have regretted it down the line. But now there has been many bumps in the road during the planning and i am so fed up i want to cancel the whole thing. An few examples of things that are going wrong: had to return wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses are discontinues, and i no longer like the venue for various reasons, size, decor, flow ….What do i do?

Honestly several people have told me that eloping is very refreshing. And it can be as elaborate or as simple as you like, same with a wedding. You don’t have to have a traditional wedding if it’s not working for you…just the one that works for you.

You and your FI are the only ones that can make that decision. If you both want to elope, are you going to lose your deposits? If you elope, will either of you regret it? If you have a traditional wedding, will either of you regret it?

Have you ever considered a destination wedding? My sister-in-law and her husband did that. They said that they wouldn’t have had it any other way and it made the ceremony more personal and romantic. Their trip was all inclusive all they paid for were souvenirs and the dress she wore…just a thought

Do what makes you and your Fiance happy. Just remember that you could regret it and hurt family members. Planning my wedding has really showed me how much family looks forward to it. My Mom still has a hard time with my brother eloping 12 years ago. There will be bumps and fights and vendor problems but that day is going to be amazing. The last month is the worst! Good luck in your decision.
