Hey ya’ll –
I’m just looking for some input. My FI and I currently have our date set for Sept. 8, 2012. However, I keep going back and forth with the idea of eloping, or going away and having a very small, intimate wedding.
I feel like the wedding with its vows and promises is something very special and private between my FI and I and don’t really want it turned into a crazy show, which it feels like it is.
Then, on the other hand, my FI and I have so many people we care about that we want there to celebrate with us. I agree with this, but don’t need all 350 of them watching us say our vows. I want a ceremony that is really just for my FI and I.
I’ve tossed around the idea of having a small, intimate elopement-type wedding and then having a reception later, but FI seems to think thats silly and to just have it all at once. But I can’t help but feel like certain people would feel left out if we had the small intimate ceremony and only invited certain people to just the reception, which is why I’d like to travel away and have the small, intimate ceremony. (Not to mention, I’m sooo sick of planning and just want to marry the love of my life!!)
Any ideas/alternatives you ladies (or guys) could give me would be great!
