    We were really close to doing this at the beginning of this year, and we kind of wish we would have. I say go for it!

    I think this is a really personal decision and there probably isn’t a right or wrong answer! The only thing I’d be concerned about is how close family would feel (your dad, his parents, any siblings). I’d hate to start a marriage with everyone mad at me for eloping ya know. 

    But if they’d be okay with it and you’d be okay with it (are you okay with never having the “wedding day” thing?) then why not? It sounds kind of romantic! 🙂

    i went to a DW in vegas last october. it wasn’t in one of the vegas wedding chapels, it was actually at a ritz about half an hour away from the strip. it was beautiful and they got to get married where they wanted but still have some loved ones with them. i think there were about 40 of us that came out for the wedding, about half of those people were family and the rest friends. i know they still saved a lot of money from what a wedding on the east coast would have cost them, since they only had 1/3-1/4 of the number of people attend. you could always invite some close friends and family out to visit you while you’re in vegas and have the wedding then.

    FFIL got married in vegas… did it at a state park… we stood next to rocks period end of story (long way to travel from NY to stand next to some rocks when we have the beach 15 min away!).. not the best idea… but im sure there are plenty of places you could do a small wedding with out doing a quickly chapel wedding plus talk to the venue you already have money down on… Out cancellation policy is we get nothing back IF they dont book the date again… but if they do theyll give us our deposit back… worth checking into…

    Honestly, I’d do it for the health insurance alone, if nothing else.  That partly determined our wedding date.

    Forget 12K, if he gets sick or in an accident it could cost you everything!
