Thinking about eloping to Gatlinburg, TN to get married in the Smokey Mountains. Im just getting really stressed with planning (or lack of it. I cant make any decisions, because everything I come up with I feel like it will be judged. My fiance wants it to be just him and I, which I am all for except I cannot shake the feeling of guilt…I dont want to regret this in the future. :/

I thought about it not too long ago after a situation popped up. FI convinced me not to make any quick decisions. After I thought about it, I realized that I want my wedding that I’ve been planning since we got engaged.

We might go to Vegas. Haven’t quite decided just yet. Either that or get married in our backyard. We’ve been together 8 years and don’t want to spend a fortune on our wedding so we’ll see which one is more cost effective. I don’t care as long as I get to marry him, wear a pretty dress, and see him in a tux 🙂

I am almost numb to the situation, we have been engaged about a year now, and we cannot come up with a way to get married that we will be happy with. We dont want a big elaborate wedding…and to be honest I never pictured a fairy tale wedding. I really dont know how to describe how I feel. Its almost as if as long as we are together it doesnt matter…the quickest, cheapest way possible, but at the same time… it means something to be that some family will be there. UGH!!!

I don’t blame you, I’ve said it everytime I think of ppl I could care less about eating our hard earned money away at the reception, but I know if I eloped I would regret it 🙁 I’m still planning my kick butt honeymoon in naples, italy even if I had to feed those ppl fishsticks!!!

Hopefully some of our family could be there. We are going to invite close family and friends to go, rent a cabin and get married over looking the mountains. Im starting to feel better about the idea for now.

I am!! We are getting married on Oct 10, 2011 in the Gatlinburg area. We both are private people and wanted it to be just us. A couple of our friends are coming along and that’s it. We have both been married before though and neither of us wanted a big wedding again.
We rented a cabin and found a great officiant. Everything was so easy!! If you need any information feel free to contact me and I can try to help. I can also let you know how it worked out when we get back home if you’d like. 🙂

My FI and I have really considered eloping, but I too would feel guilty not having my family there. Looking back I think I would be upset that they weren’t there for our special day. I have been engaged for 6 months and my twin sister got engaged 3 months before I did. She just got married sept. 17. So with that being said, I was very much involved in helping her plan her wedding, so I just can’t get into planning mine….:( Nothing seems to be falling into place….it would be so much easier to elope.

I thought about dropping the planning and eloping but I want a wedding too much. =/
I’m just so stressed out.
I just feel like if we elope and my son isn’t there I’d feel terrible for the rest of my life but if my son is there he also needs someone to take him home while we head off to our honeymoon… If I have my grandmother there to take him then I have to have the rest of my close family and then the list keeps growing and turns back into a wedding. I’m ready to run away and elope on the beach but it would be harder than the wedding planning for me.

FI would be totally okay if we just went to our pastors office and got married like…yesterday. I have put way to much effort into planing our wedding now to do that though. But sometimes I do think it would be nice to just be married already and done with it!
