We did elope! 🙂 And it was the best decision we could have made. One day, I was thinking about all the money we’d end up spending on a traditional wedding and how it was still over a year away. When Darling Husband got home from work, I was like, “Let’s elope.” And he said, “Okay.” We planned our wedding in about two months. Unfortunately, there was a death in my family shortly after we announced our new plan, so we were sending out invitations and doing funeral stuff at the same time, which was kind of an odd experience. But everything went well in the end, though I was really bummed that my great-aunt wasn’t there to see us get married. 🙁

@blueskye:  Thank you–it was tough because we were very close. Each of my relatives who were at the wedding wore a piece of her jewelry, so it was like she was still sort of with us. Darling Husband even wore a tie tack she had owned, which I thought was really cool.

With all my family drama and people’s ridiculous demands, I would elope in a heartbeat if I could. Unfortunately both Fi and my parents are devout Catholics. Without a church wedding, they wouldn’t even considered us married. =(

We almost eloped, but his mother convinced us otherwise.

we talked about getting married in mexico but i really wanted my family with me so we planned the wedding in ontario.  up until a week before the wedding, my now husband kept trying to convince me to get married on the beach under the palms.  we own a beautiful lot on the beach with 16 coconut palms.  i was tempted because it is so beautiful and somewhat secluded.

We are eloping!!

After so many tears and so much drama Fiance said to me a few weeks ago “do you still want to elope?” and I almost fell off my chair because I couldn’t believe those words were comming out of his mouth since he is the one who wanted the big wedding.

I just confirmed our ceremony time today (paying deposit tomorrow) and our hotels are being booked tonight and I’ve spoken to a local restaurant to reserve for 8 people (likely there will only be 6 of us, our bestman & his Fiance (also a bridesmaid) + my Maid/Matron of Honor & her hubby).

We are SO excited to be eloping but SO scared to tell our families … AFTER!
