Elope and tell her afterwards.  She’ll just have to adjust and deal with it or stew and be pissy.

Also she might surprise you and be supportive.

You don’t have to tell her before you elope. You can wait and tell her afterward. That’s how enlopements used to be done. 

I told people we were having an enlopement ceremony with no guests. (We told people ahead of time.) Some were unhappy, but I stood strong. It wasn’t up to them. It was up to me and my husband. 

You can tell her, “We are making the best decision for us” or “This is how we want to get married.” Tell her you will get her a nice photo to put on her wall. Don’t engage with long arguments or discussions with anybody. I agree that your boyfriend should be the one having these discussions with her.
