Wedding stress has got me dreaming I eloped! It would be much more romantic and better yet less expensive!!! If you are having a wedding ceremony/reception with more than 20 people, How would you elope if you could change it?
Would you run away on vacation? Would you tell your family and friends? Would you invite your parents? What would you do after? Would you wear the same dress? etc….

@engleman10513: Oh my gosh, I think about this all the time. 🙂 We had a 160-guest wedding and while it was a perfect day, I dream about what it would’ve been like for us to elope! I would’ve done it somewhere tropical, maybe Hawaii on a rock, just the two of us. 🙂 We’d probably tell our family and friends and end up inviting them though! haha..

@engleman10513: Fi and I would fly out to ca and Elope in Yosemite. 🙂 We’d have a small picnic reception for just the two of us, and hire an aweosme photographer to capture the moments and sign the wedding license. We’d have an amazing 2 week honeymoon, and everything would be perfect. Then we’d fly back home, tell the family, share a video of the I dos, and tell them all to relax. 😛 We’d have a bbq reception for everyone.

@engleman10513: Toes in the sand in a simple white flowy dress, on the beach somewhere…Hawaii, Jamaica, the Bahamas…*sigh* That’s what I really wanted, but no one else did!

Probably somewhere Europe on a sunny day in some rustic village. With a professional photographer there of course!

I would have had a simple ceremony with just the two of us and our MOH and BM at a local nature park in the fall. To celebrate, we’d have a small family dinner at a really nice restaurant.
I’ve been daydreaming about this too much. In my head I’ve picked out what I would wear, how I would style my hair, and how I would tell my family. *sigh*

On a cliff in Santa Cruz at sunset, take a photo, send it off to everyone and then a few months later we’d have a casual party to celebrate with a taco truck and cupcakes at a local park or something. I was thinking about this while trying to fall asleep last night…

We were going to have a 100+ person, $30K wedding in MD. We decided to have a $3.5K wedding in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel, the room holds 20 people max…

@engleman10513: Well, I lived this! LOL! I called my husband after work one day back in April crying and said, “I’m done, I don’t want this stupid wedding. I want just us, on the coast, alone.” SO, 3 weeks later we did! Didn’t tell anyone, just ran off just the two of us!
We had an amazing beach ceremony with just our photographer, officiant, officiant’s boyfriend, and baker in attendance. It was absolutely perfect and we got to spend the weekend in an incredible ocean front jacuzzi suite! I would chose to do the same thing a thousand times over! I’m so happy we scrapped our 150 person August 4th wedding and eloped in May. Best. choice. EVER. 🙂

I dream of eloping all the time! We would go to the pavilions resort in Phuket where we had an amazing vacation a few years ago. I would still wear my dress and get married on the beach and then spend a week just us in our private pool villa looking out into the ocean!
If it wasn’t for FI family probably disowning us if we did I am pretty sure we would!

We would have went to Vegas with no more than 20 family members

There’s a diving resort off the coast of Borneo called Kapalai. Me and FI holidayed there before, and its the most beautiful place. It’s basically built on stilts off this sand bar in the middle of the ocean. Everyone gets their own chalet, and its all connected with walkways. They do weddings there, and I think it would be perfect for a very small elopement.

We would have eloped somewhere in Ireland or Scottland!

We would go back to our original plan and get married at El Morro in San Juan, PR. Hire our same photogs (they’re destination photographers) and have them do double-duty as the witnesses. Videotape the whole thing and send it to everyone while we’re off on a honeymoon of ridiculous awesome-ness. I’d still wear a fancy dress, FI would still want to wear a tux, but it would just be us. None of this crazy 200+ person assigned seating budget blowing drama fest that’s going on.
No, we’ve never thought about eloping, not ever. 😉
