a_day_at_the_fair:  If you feel elopement is best, do it! But don’t do it just because your family has upset you. Why did you and your fiancé choose to go the small wedding route? And have you talked with him about this? 

Honestly if your family is upsetting you and you feel the way to really celebrate and enjoy your wedded bliss is elopement, go for it. I’d just hate an emotion ruled decision to deprive you of a wedding if you both want it. 

Hugs, bee. And I hope you make the right choice for yourselves as a couple!

And what about your FI? It seems like most brides on this site tend to forget that a wedding involves 2 people. Does your Fiance have friends and family he wants to share this day with?

a_day_at_the_fair:  if a wedding isn’t important to you u RJ don’t have a wedding. Even a small wedding can accrue quite a bit of cost. I think asking the closest people to you to join you is a great way to go. And then if you want, you can throw a celebration party with your friends. I understand strained sibling relationships. It sucks. I don’t think it’s worth it to be miserable if you and your Fiance agree that elopement will be a good option.

I would suggest to carry on with eloping. We talked about it too, the only reason why we’re not is because I really wanted my family to be there. (Even though they’ve been such a hassle we’ve almost reconsidered it)

If your dad can’t come and you don’t want the rest of your family there, then why else would you have a small wedding? If you think you’ll be happiest off somewhere with your love, I say go for it.

I think your idea of eloping then having a celebratory dinner is a great idea! Good luck planning! 🙂

The destination elopement sounds a lot more fun and you than the drama-wedding you’ve ended up planning but obviously don’t want.

Follow your heart!!

Having eloped myself, I say it’s the best thing ever (I’ve had a traditional wedding as well, so I know what both are like). But elope only because you two want to elope, not because of situations with others. 🙂
