We were going to elope at city hall but it meant a lot for us to have our children and my family and his very close friends there (he’s not close to his mom, dad passed away). But other than that I would’ve eloped in a heart beat, I get a little envious seeing these gorgeous DE’s (destination elopements).

 

What do you mean about the “gay thing”?

After deciding not to have a large wedding (my mom contributing $25k and us $15k and it still not being whatwe wanted) we opted for a very small wedding. Immediate family only. I wantrd to elope, but my husband wanted his parents and siblings there. No regrets in keeping it small. I think eloping would still have been even cooler. We plan to renew our vows and have a large celebration with us footing the entire bill. You could awlays do that too. Get in a great financial situation now and years down the road when your fun mmoney savings builds up have a large vow renewal.

In my experience, small weddings have a way of getting out of hand so I would definitely elope if you’ve never wanted a large wedding. I had a small wedding and regret it. I should have just stuck to my guns and eloped.

@doubletrouble: I love the zit comment. I agree with @MRSsrm85: small weddings can become a bigger than planned wedding very easily and before you know it you’re not having the day you planned so I’d majorly consider eloping. Having looked into it this can have it’s own issues, bug it can be done. Best planning wishes!
