I eloped & we both were dressed.  My dress wasn’t crazy expensive, though it was a J Crew.  And we had no one in attendance but the priest & the photographers — you won’t look crazy!

@mrsedwardslpn:  We eloped to New Orleans.  My sash is from a seller on Etsy 🙂  This is in Jackson Square after we married on the Riverwalk!

@mrsedwardslpn:  Yeah, I don’t blame you.  The original gown off of J Crews website was $795.  I got mine from oncewed.com for $300 never worn.  Another bride changed her wedding style and was trying to get rid of it.  I basically stalked the site until I found that dress in my size… and my bridal size was a size 12 which is probably common, so it took awhile!

I’d say 15 guests is more like an intimate wedding, not an elopement, but this board deals with both.

 

But yes, we did dress up for our elopement.  I wore a lace Casablanca gown (would you believe this dress is 7 years old, I got it brand new).  H wore a suit from Kohl’s.

H actually bought that suit for my father’s funeral which was 88 days before we got married sad enough.  I wondered if we’d feel weird wearing the funeral suit, but we did not and it did not even cross my mind actually.
