I only booked my wedding about 2 weeks ago and I’ve already cancelled it. We found a great venue that was really reasonably priced, but all the “extras” kept adding up. Add on to that the fact that my mother was/is a complete b*tch throughout the whole process and causing me crazy amounts of stress, I decided to cancel the whole thing.
We are now going to elope! The day is all about us and we are going to make it that way. We are going to spend the entire budget on an amazing weddingmoon and I am looking forward to being stress free and getting married against a stunning backdrop. It will just be the two of us and we couldn’t be happier.
The best part…The venue even gave me back my non-refundable deposit. There are certainly ways around that! I honestly feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and now my FI gets what he wanted all along…a beach wedding and then a relaxing two weeks with me. I think we will keep the date the same 🙂
Just wanted to share my news with my fellow bees!

Thanks, ladies 🙂 I am so excited. I’m sure there will still be challenges (the biggest one I’ve found so far is finding a resort that allows outside photographers), but overall it will be a much easier process…and stress free!
@MeiFrancis: I am so happy I didn’t lose my deposit. I was so worried, and I tried every strategy in the book to get that $1,000 back. Thankfully it worked!

Best of luck! Good for you for doing what YOU and your FI want instead of being influenced by family!

I felt the same way, and we got our deposits back even 4 months before the wedding!
