I’ll be honest…I 80% wish we had. Not completely, but I wish we’d had an immediate family only wedding in our dream destination. We didn’t, and I love my friends and other family that are coming, but part of me still wishes we had gone with our gut.

If you really think your family/his family will make your day less about you guys and more about their issues, whether it’s the church thing, alcohol, or negativity, then eloping does sound like a good idea. However, if you feel you would regret it or miss out on something, it doesn’t sound like it’s for you guys. Whichever way you choose, make a firm decision, stick with it and be positive about it. 🙂 Good luck.

A wedding is for YOU and your husby. NOT for anyone else. You shouldn’t have to stress about the event, you should be super excited. 

Elope!!! People who love you will want you to be on cloud nine, not be selfish and keep inserting their OWN opinions on what is YOUR day.

What about Mexico, just you and your fiance. When you come home do a reception for family and they can do all the drama they want cause your special day will already have a place in your heart :))
