@haircut4aqt:  I know you posted 2 months ago, but I hope it’s not too late to help! 🙂

My Fiance and I are doing basically the same thing. We had sent out STD’s and everything, then changed our minds after the drama-fest from family and friends. We sent an email to our close family and friends that had been a part of the original wedding party explaining that we had decided to elope and to please not tell anyone about our new plans. Basically, we didn’t want to be fielding a ton of questions, and it was no one else’s business. We called our parents to tell them “in person” so they wouldn’t be offended.

We moved our wedding up by 5 months, so the STD’s weren’t a huge issue… anyone (other than the wedding party) that are making plans to come to the wedding before getting an official invite is a bit presumptuous, IMO.

We will be sending out announcements after we get back from our mini-moon, that way our photographer can get a couple of our photos to us to use for the announcements. One that has a sign that says “We eloped!” and the date, and another more standard photo that we can include in the envelope (as a “gift”).

Here is the idea for wording on the announcement:

Because we love you
We thought you should know…
We ran off and got married
Without a lot of show!
{Bride} and {Groom}
Got married on {date}
In {location}
And now reside at {address}
You were all in our hearts on our special day!

Hope that helps for you! Good luck!
