@sienna76:  I haven’t eloped at all (though I’ve definitely thought about it!), but I think you’re right. This wedding sounds like it’s very different from your last one, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in how it goes, since you’re really marking the occasion. Your plans sound amazing and I’m sure it’ll be beautiful.

I love your reasons for why you are eloping. It makes you a great person to put yourself aside for the care of your father. As long as that is the day YOU want, don’t worry about how others will view it. I won’t lie, I’ve thought of a court house appearance multiple times. My brother did it and I was his witness. It was the fact that two people who love each other so stinkin’ much get to be with each other forever.

I wish you all the best on your wedding day and hope it is everything you’ve ever wanted!

I think this sounds like a great idea. I think too many people get caught up in the drama of having a big wedding and forget to remember what is truly important. I think looking at things logically is best, and, beautiful as yours sounds, I can’t imagine you’ll regret it. My Darling Husband and I had a courthouse ceremony, and I’ve never regretted not spending all that time and money on a large ceremony. I’ve only been married the one time (and still am), but I wouldn’t do things differently even if I had the chance.

You know best, and I agree with your decisions.  I do think after everything is settled with your dad and your immediate plans, do invite the main folks from both families over your place for a Saturday or Sunday brunch.  You could do some cooking and perhaps order a few platters and have a lovely buffet, a nice spiked punch and a lovely “weddingish” cake.  Take photos, have a champagne toast and enjoy the day with them.  Good luck and all the best!
