Sometimes my family makes me really, really mad. I love them to death, but they CAN hurt me sometimes. I don’t always want them at my wedding. I know I would regret it, but sometimes I DO want to elope. What’s keeping me is the fact that I will regret it and I DO want to go over the top with a(n) (inexpensive) wedding!
Have you guys ever felt that way?

The idea of a huge wedding scares the crap out of me! The stress, trying to keep people happy, etc….frightening. You should do what you and your FI want, and put everyone else on the back burner! It is a day to celebrate your love, and that is what should matter 🙂

I did elope.
It comes off a little offensive to me hearing people say “OMG I want to elope sometimes” and then list a bunch of reasons why they can’t/would never.
It is a little like “OMG I wish I were a lesbian” when dating and having boy problems but then going on to explain that you’re actually still straight.
If you’re frustrated with wedding planning, that’s ok. You can totally vent, but I’d like to request that you don’t throw around the word “elope” like it’s a threat. It is a wonderful option, but isn’t for everyone.

I am four months out from my wedding and planning has been such a headache I wish we had!

I’d considered eloping when I got engaged. I don’t like being the center of attention, my family wasn’t supportive and I’m only close with a handful of my family members anyway. FH was the one that actually wanted a wedding so we compromised. We’re having a very intimate ceremony. Sometimes I wonder how much easier or better it would have been if we had just eloped, but I want FH to be happy too.

I think some people feel like eloping would eliminate all their stress and worries, but eloping isn’t for everyone. For those it is for its not because of selfish reasons or because they are upset with how wedding planning is going. You want a wedding that is elaborate you need to take the pain that comes with it, but just know if will be worth it in the end. There is stress whether you are planning on getting married with 200 guests or eloping somewhere.
