fredthebasil :  You are right, I can think whatever I want. Which is why I said “Purely my opinion” in my post. Your response won’t change my mind. 

Also, I never said its “elaborately planned and publicized event”. I said “getting married just 2 of you“.

So yea, have a good day!

charlottecoffee :  your idea sounds fab. Go with it and ignore any other comments. It’s your wedding day not theirs.

Me and my fiancé are currently planning to elope in paris. As of now we haven’t told family and I’m worried about telling people at work. Everyone wants to come to our wedding. But no matter what we are going to do what feels right for us. I totally get how you feel about this!

You should just let the comments roll off your back.  If they bother you too much, stop sharing details. When it comes up in casual convo, just say you’re planning something small.  No need to talk through china patterns, table linens, cake flavors, etc. etc.

BringOnTheHappy : If your plans are known to bunch of people, you’re not eloping. 

Hundreds of years ago? Eloping means the same thing whether people are using it differently and incorrectly or not. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/elope

The point is, if it’s not secret — secrets can involve a few people, but not many; we all know what a secret is — it’s not eloping. OP already told a bunch of people her plans, so she’s not eloping; that’s all I’m saying.

ETA: this is a fact, not my opinion.

Be brave, bee <3 It’s your prerogative to start your marriage on your own terms. It sounds like eloping is your best case scenario – and that’s fine! Be prepared for some awkward questions at first when you get back, but I expect people will quickly get over it. Eloping isn’t exactly a new thing ๐Ÿ™‚ And congrats!
