Elope, tell no one, say you are open to a reception?
Hold a reception and have the officiant show up as a surprise and get married on the spot?
But if that’s been your dream, then to me, it’s like asking a giraffe to be a zebra. I would choose what we want.

I am having tha same issue. It has been my dream to have a very small wedding on the beach in flordia. My future mother in law told me no way, that the extended family could not attend therefore we shouldn’t do it. My fiancé then agreed with her after she said this. So I am paying for most of a large wedding that I don’t even want to have. I wish you the best of luck, hopefully you get your dream wedding.
