Especially since you have kids, I think it’s more important to be married than to sink more money into a wedding.

My FI and I have had a short engagement, and we’re doing a small ceremony.

I know some people want a big, expensive wedding, but I don’t really get it.

We decided just three weeks ago that we were going to elope to Vegas and i am beyong excited. This is my second marriage his first, so i wasnt excited about a traditional wedding. He’s a pretty low key guy so he has no interest in big affairs either. We were going to have s small intimate wedding but we decided just recently to elope in vegas. We will be married next month! It will be just the two of us. 

Since you have kids,i think it would be wonderful for you two to take a vacation away from the kids for a day or two to Vegas. Just get married already! You wont regret it.

@KJnTW2013:  Well that would work out! She would probably love being part of the experience as well as getting to go to Vegas. We are fortunate enough that his parents are going to watch my daughter, but we will only be gone for two days so it won’t be too tough on her. We would bring her but i dont know if Vegas would be toddler friendly.

Whether you choose to elope now or a year later, I don’t think you should spend any more money than necessary on your wedding. Even if you didn’t have kids, you can save that for an amazing vacation/honeymoon. I think you should search used wedding dress sites (because you only wear it once) and spend more on a good photographer. I am doing a destination elopement in our honeymoon. I bought a used dress, fiance is going to be in a simple slack and button down, and we are focusing more on a photographer that can capture the love between us.

I think with the right photographer, you can both be in jeans and t shirts and still feel the love between you two through the photos.
