    We’ll be eloping to Hawaii in September and planning a nice dinner at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion when we get back (just to tie in the Hawaiian theme).  It won’t be anything big, just our immediate families.  I wouldn’t bother with doing anything after a year.  If they’re bitter about not being able to attend, it will just be a night of snide comments.  Who wants that ruining your anniversary?

    Congrats on your new marriage!

    Minivent: I just don’t GET how anyone can be “offended” by two people getting married privately together because that’s what the couple wanted to do. Errmahgerrd, they didn’t have a big wedding, how rude of them!!!

    Seriously. I would definitely not throw a post-marriage “reception” just to appease people who are chosing to be offended by the way you chose to spend the happiest day of your life.  Besides, In My Humble Opinion, I personally think having this sort of thing semi-defeats the beauty of your elopement. However, if that’s truly what you and Fiance (and only you and fiance — nobody else!!) want to do, then by all means…

    I’m with FutureMrsLAL.  Congrats on your marriage.  If before you guys eloped you thought about doing something than do it but if not don’t just to please those people.  I find it rude of them to be like that.  I understand some people get offended and others don’t and it’s okay to vent it out but they shouldn’t be telling you about it because now you have this pressure.

    If you were already planning on doing something than do whatever is you two decided on doing whenever you decided to do it.  I don’t think you should let them affect your decision to or not to have a vowl renewal or reception.
