There were times that I really wished we had planned to elope. But there are a lot of factors that made that absolutely not an option for us. And now, looking back, I wouldn’t have changed a thing – I loved my big wedding! But congrats to you on your decision!

I do! The wedding was good, everything we wanted and planned for a year, but what I really loved was marring my husband!

Well. I just posted on your other thread reently that we are now eloping after cancelling our May 1 wedding. We are thinking Coziumel, Hawaii, or ??? So far, everyone seems super supportive and actually relieved (expenses would have been tough on everyone, almost). I was so excited today to find out the trolley co, refunded our deposit! $195.


I don’t know if cheerful is still around,but I love her “black tie elopement”!

I would have loved to elope!  In fact, if we could do it all over again, we would elope.  The wedding was fun and great, but the marrying my husband part was the best!

It comes up from time to time during planning – especially when everything seems too overwhelming. I can definately understand why you’re doing it.

Negative, it was too fun!

Although it would’ve been nice to have that 20K back in our bank accounts, LOL.

I dunno I was so dead set against eloping in the beginning, now that I feel I’ve
HAD the wedding, I *could* elope and be ok with it!

But i think that’s only because I ultimately DID get to experience a wedding!

There’s something naughty and fun about running off and getting married, though, that I love. Romantic and dashing…

Sometimes, when I realized how much money we were spending on stuff, I thought to myself “Is this really going to matter when it’s all over?” lol, but I am glad I have the memories & the pictures & that my family was all there and got to share in it.

We eloped on Sunday although we’re still having the family wedding in May.  I wanted to elope, he wanted the wedding so we both got what we wanted.  What I loved most about Sunday was is was just about he and I.  I didn’t care about my hair, makeup, dress, making other people happy or worrying about anything else but commiting myself to my love for the rest of our lives.  It was amazing.  But I am looking forward to the party in May ๐Ÿ™‚
