Hello, me and my partner are eloping in November. we both have made our peace with people being upset/angry, but lately I have an overwhelMing sense of guilt about my father. Am I horrible for denying him walking me down the aisle, giving me away and the father-daughter dance?
if anyone who has been in this position and has any advice or words of wisdom I would greatly appreciate it!! Thank you x

Emmajayne88: I have also considered eloping but are planning a destination wedding instead. I think you need to consider the pros and cons of your choice. Why do you want to elope? How mad/ hurt are they gonna be?

Emmajayne88: Is it possible to have a small destination wedding with immediate family only?

You could always have a celebration with family and friends at a later time. I was fine with the most minimal of ceremonies, but FI wanted to have a small celebration. As a result, we’re having a mini ceremony, and then several months later when the weather’s better will be the celebration.

Emmajayne88: Have you talked to your father about this? How does he feel about it? If you’ve made your peace, and he is ok with it too, I would go ahead and elope. Otherwise, could you maybe do a very, very small, intimate ceremony with just parents and siblings or even just parents?
