I’m just getting into all this wedding planning stuff, and it takes me back to when I was little and thinking I’d probably never get married and if I did, I didn’t want all eyes on me. In the back of my mind I always just wanted it to be me and my husband. Not the most typical little girl ever.
I really never thought I’d be faced with the prospect of getting married, period. I’m not sure why. Now that I am, even though I’ve always wanted to elope, I can’t help but be worried that if I don’t have a wedding with my friends and family I’ll regret it.
I still have time to figure it out, two years to be exact. (to the day if things go as planned ;))
Has anybody else gone through this?

we eloped and the only thing i regret is the time we married, 1pm on a beach was hot – everything was fun and relaxed and we came home and had a big party for the families
but i will say im still a little bit wedding obsessed – i help plan friends weddings all the time and played wedding coordinated more than once and im going to be a Maid/Matron of Honor next month so im still here. going to be hard to give WB up after the wedding… unless i can convince one of my single friends to get married

@Mrs. Puffin: I hope more bee’s that eloped can answer this for you. But I remember when I looked at elopment packages due to budget & found some really nice ones where family can actually attend. Like some was 15 people could come, around that number. & The price included the cake, bouquet, pictures, usually a bed & breakfast to stay at that night or how ever many days it includes in the package. So you can elope & have family there, close family if you want. 🙂

I don’t regret it at all! It was amazing. Sometimes when I look at photos of big weddings I wonder what it would be like, but then I look at our photos. It was the best day of my life, everything was perfect.

I don’t regret it. We wanted to do things ourselves and we couldn’t afford a big wedding. Just facts.
