- Wedding: June 2012
So my FI and I decided in April 2010 that we were going to get married. Intially we planned on keeping it a very small and low key wedding with just our parents and siblings which would of been no more than 30 people. Shortly after being engaged his parents decided that alot of people would feel left out if they were not invited. They pretty much pushed us into a big wedding resulting in our guest list going from 30 to 100. This is not what I wanted!!!! Yes i want to wear the beautiful dress and have my dad give me away but i dont want to plan a wedding for THEIR friends. My FI and I only have a couple of friends on the list that we want there and everyone else is distant family that we never talk to or friends of his parents …
Alot of the planning is done but it honestly just feels so stressful and i almost want to elope just to say that my FI and I did it our way and then still have our “wedding” On june 10th 2011 to celebrate with our family and friends that will come. Maybe we could instead of do a ceremony where our family or friends can do a reading.
Have any of you eloped and also had a wedding infront of your family and friends?
