I would prefer to get married by eloping. I want the marriage but I don’t really want to share all the details and private moments with others. Hate the idea of others listening to us say our vows, of asKing people to gice up their time to attend our wedding.

I’d love go fly off to a resort somewhere, just the two of us, and combine wedding and honeymoon. But this would upset FH’s family, and I don’t want him to pay the price.

So yes, you’re not the only one!

I wanted to elope but FH didn’t, so we’re having a super small wedding. I do feel like I’m in the minority. I overheard a girl the other day talking about her 200+ guest list and how she was so glad she was having a small wedding. I know that the idea of “small” is different for everyone, but geez, I don’t know what I’d do with a guest lis with 200 people.

I wanted to elope really bad, but SO was insistent on the formal wedding.

But I guess we both get what we wanted since he’s deploying early next year, so we’re having a courthouse wedding in January, then when he gets back, we’re having the formal wedding. Probably with 50 people, but we may raise it to 100.

So I guess I win. >:D

Maybe there aren’t as many people on the elopement boads because it takes less planning, in general, what with there being much fewer people in attendence.

Haven’t decided about wedding vs. eloping yet. But I don’t have any friends who eloped, so yes, that part makes me feel a bit “oddball” about considering it.

Weeeeell it IS weddingbee and not marriagebee! A lot of bees probably found their way here by researching something about a wedding, like a dress or something DIY.

Sometimes I want to forget the whole thing and just go to Bora Bora. But a church wedding would be INCREDIBLY important to his family and mine. Also I kinda want one. But I also want Bora Bora.

We eloped last week and it was fantastic. We didn’t have the stress of planning a wedding and it was really romantic. It was something that was shared between the two of us and the day was really special. Just remember that it’s your day and you should have what you want.
