So my fiancee and I are headed to Panama City Beach this weekend with our daughters and my fiancee’s parents. We are looking for cute and easy way to let my future IL’s know we plan on eloping.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

You want to tell them before you do it?

@deetroitwhat: Yes! Mostly everyone knows we are eloping(except for them). This is not something I can just be quiet about(all though it seems like a lot of people do). I really wouldn’t consider it an elopement. We are forced to go out of state because we are a lesbian couple living in a non-friendly state.

Yeah that’s tough. I sent out announcements after it happened.
Maybe you can get some champagne flutes with your names & wedding date to give them to open?

I would wait until you’re there. It seems like it would be more exciting to say something like “Guess what! We’re getting MARRIED tomorrow!”

@Mrs.LemonDrop: That’s not really an option because we need them to take us to the airport and watch our kids.

@RainbowMom13: Congrats on your upcoming elopement!
So I told people before hand. Anyone and everyone who asked me (they were aware of the engagement and knew we were figuring out plans). I did not really say it in a cute way; I just said it plain as day.
I would just tell them like today – “Hey you know that trip we’re taking? Well we’re getting married on the trip!” Do you see any issues with this?
If you want to tell them afterwards, just say that you two are going on a kid-free vacation I guess!
