I had booked and paid for the church and reception site. Was about to pay for photographer. Had purchased some decor and started some DIY projects. I had also sent out my STD’s. Cancelled it all.

Luckily my church & reception site $$ were refundable. I let travelling guests there was no need because we changed our wedding plans and updated the wedding website.

@MrsPom:   I did!  I actually canceled our wedding that was paid for.  Yeah.  It was 2 months in advance.  I had not sent my invites, but I had sent Save-The-Date Cards.  We had a tiny wedding with just us.  In so many ways, I am a little against weddings (shhh!  I know, this is a wedding site!)  I was pressured into my wedding before I was ready, and we canceled for a lot of reasons.  I was however, ready for marriage.  To me, they are two completely different things!  Starting out with stress and having a huge display just is not for me.  We would like to have a 5 year party, that is more my style.  Feel free to PM if you want to!

@MrsPom:  I do agree with the whole leave me alone for 10 minutes too!!  As it’s getting closer and closer I feel that even more.  I had one bridal moment a few weeks ago and everythings been pretty good since.  Everyone was bugging about every last detail.  Eloping was such a good idea at the beginning then my Fiance said he wanted a “real” wedding and my dad said that he’d be sad if we eloped.  I hate attention and the idea of everyone staring at us for 5 and a half hours and spending $25K on one day makes eloping even nicer.  Someone I ran into through my engagement is getting married 10 days before me on an island in the Caribbean.  It’s going to be about 25 people and it’s only costing them $10K for their wedding.  Makes eloping sound even sweeter!  Hope it all works out for you!  Laughing
