    Eloped, love it, no regrets! I’m SO happy we did it the way we did. I wanted to marry him, the party wasn’t necessary. A little background – we started planning a small, 50 person wedding. Too many people had too many opinions and at one point the MOG stopped talking to the groom etc. It was all too much, too stressful etc. I worried constantly that they wouldn’t be on good enough terms for the actual day, that our parents might clash or make things awkward etc. We called off the wedding, and secretly eloped on our own. One or 2 people said they were a little hurt (they were the ones causing issues to begin with), but they got over it. I didn’t want to look back at MY wedding day as having pleased everyone else but Ourselves. We did it exactly as we wanted, and for anyone who didn’t like it, I don’t really care.

    Not even a little! Although I guess technically we had a very small Destination Wedding with immediate family only. We didn’t tell anyone outside of our families that it was happening, except for one friend each. But zero regrets!!

    Not at all, it was perfection. We did have a small reception back home too, so it was sort of the best of both worlds.

    I’m right there on the fence with you! I can’t decide if I want to have a wedding or elope. Even a small wedding is still expensive and time consuming, but would I regret not having one? Financing a wedding for me isn’t an issue, but I don’t know that I want to spend so much on one day. Or a can go on an amazing honeymoon and skip the headache and drama. Ugh.

    We eloped a little over 4 years ago and the only thing I’ve regretted was not having our parents there.

    It’s only been 2 weeks but I have no regrets at all. All said and done we spent ~3300 including our rings, it was a sweet intimate ceremony, and the very next day we were just as married as anyone who does a big blow out affair! It was the perfect day for us.
