@Allie99:  My best friend is doing this (in her case, parents siblings & me = 9 guests + bride & groom) and I’ve been saying she’s “essentially eloping”. I have several cousins who did it, too, and we jokingly refer to those as “secret weddings” but really we consider it elopeing.

That would be an intimate wedding. sounds like the venue just has different names for numbers for people solely for pricing purposes only. congrats!! We are having an intimate wedding too, and I love the non-traditional aspects.

@Allie99:  We originally wanted a true “just the two of us” eloping, but my DH has children and we wanted to include them in our day. Also his dad is a pastor so we wanted him to marry us…that led to us inviting his parents, his brothers, my mom, my sis, my dad and his wife. We had a total of 11 ppl incl us and the kids. I was still calling it a elopement, but I finally started calling it an intimate ceremony.

We are going to have our parents and siblings, for a total of 8 guests.   I am calling it an elopement, since we aren’t really announcing it to anyone until afterwards, but perhaps I should start considering it as an intimate wedding.
