@MariahLynn:  I’m confused about your options.  Here’s what I’d do.  Elope (plain jane civil ceremony type).  Then next year have a vow renewal and treat it like your wedding, with everything that would have meant for you in the first place.  I’ve never heard of a “second ceremony.”  I don’t really know what that means.  Why do you have to have the get married now, though?  Why not live together until May and have your wedding as originally planned?

 You can certainly  have a  reception and as nice a reception as you would like , but  I would really not recommend a do over of the wedding ceremony part.   Your elopement IS   a wedding and you will be just as married as any other couple.  I’m afraid I’m  not a big fan of “renewing”  vows in most cases, either. To me it takes away from the original promise and the idea that a vow is forever.

@MariahLynn:  We also didn’t believe in living together before marriage (we’re Catholic).  I’m just curious, elopement sounds very non-religious to me.  Is your aversion to living together a religious one?
