We did not.  If I wanted a party, I would have had a proper wedding. 

We have friends that got married at the courthouse and then had a dinner for immediate family at a restaurant which I think the parents split.

We are doing a cruise elopement (sort of, we have announced that’s what we are doing) we are planning on having an anniversary party the following year

 Neither of us wanted a “show” wedding, but we like the reception idea. This gives us the best of both worlds

We originally planned to do a “party” after our elopement but realized that was for everyone else and not for us. We chose to elope because we wanted it to be intimate and easy. That’s the point of an elopement! Sometimes it works and everyone wants a big get together afterwards, we chose not to. It was nice to celebrate us and not worry about pleasing everyone else for our union. 🙂 do what you want and what works for you to bring you happiness.
