Working on a budget with my parents (they’re paying for most of the wedding) made me want to elope!! But I know 20-30 years from now, I’ll regret it. So I’m going to pursue my big traditional church wedding!

We just eloped.. it was awesome! We are different religions so the big church wedding wasnt our style. We plan to have a big reception in 2011 though- complete with the big white dress. We cant wait!

been there – did it!  a big wedding was never something i ever imagined, a church wedding was never something i ever dreamt about and the one and only time i walked into a bridal shop and looked at dresses i burst out laughing. 

im so glad there are so many amazing options for every bride

That is gorg, but SMP sometimes makes me angry because everyone looks like a model haha

I’m not even ENGAGED, but galacticstallion once wanted to elope with me… 6 months into the relationship hahahaha. It still cracks us up because my answer (he didn’t even propose, just dropped that suggestion like he was saying “we should go get ice cream”) was a pause and finally a “Are you outta your f-ing mind?”

Sometimes I contemplate eloping. I know my fiance would be all for it. No fuss, no muss. It’s so appealing at times but then I think, I want that beatuiful wedding with all my friends and family so alas I will not be eloping.

Oh my gosh~! this looks amazing! 

So when you elope, is anyone there with you or is it just the 2 of you? Do you have a bridal party and such?

I’ve seriously thought about eloping. And I’ve even tried to convince the Fiance. He always says no, but mostly because he knows a wedding is something that I want (He knows me so well). Plus I tend to only SERIOUSLY think of eloping when I’m majorly stressed out about wedding budget things!

I do find it funny though… isn’t the guy normally supposed to want to elope and the girl want the wedding? Sometimes we’re a little opposite. Haha.

I’ve considered eloping 100000 times but I know I’d disappoint my parents.  My only sister and her husband eloped in Jamaica about 8 years ago, so the pressure is on me to keep it local this time… our parents couldn’t even go to her wedding!  Her wedding was gorgeous and she says she wouldn’t change anything about it, but sometimes I think she’s sad that I’m doing the big traditional wedding that she was initially planning to do.  I guess I’ll stick with my plans… considering the save the dates have been sent, it’s a little late to change it now anyway lol.

I’ve heard two witnesses are standard…

But ANYONE can be a witness, right? Like, the officiant and your hotel manager/coordinator, right?

How pretty is that!? Yes, I’ve definately considered eloping and then just doing a larger ‘gathering’ later in celebration of the marriage. But too many people would be disappointed, and a part of me wanted the wedding too. 🙂 I dooooo tend to want to elope in times of stress also though! haha…and as i see the bills add up and the bank account go down! 🙂
