    Go with your gut. Ultimately you need to do what makes YOU happy. Darling Husband and I had a fancy wedding planned out, and we scrapped it and got hitched in my grandparents’ yard because it just felt right. And you know what? I’m so glad we didn’t waste money on a giant wedding we didn’t even want.

    It sounds like you guys like the idea of having the small, low-key ceremony and investing in your honeymoon. Do it. If you have a giant affair that neither of you really wants, you’re going to be depressed when you think back on your wedding. Is that what you want? I don’t think so.

    Good luck, honey! I know it’s hard!

    P.S. If his mom is hell-bent on inviting people you can’t afford to invite, then she should be paying for them. If she doesn’t offer, don’t invite them if they mean little to nothing to you guys. End of story.

    You should do what YOU want, not what SHE wants! If she wants all these people coming, then she at least needs to help pay a little bit! If not, then just cut it at inviting your aunts and uncles and first cousins maybe…but not all the others. I don’t think you should elope, unless that is of course what you want to do. In all honestly, the receptions are what cost most of the money..unless you were planning on having a non sit down meal and maybe you made it potluck style…The ceremony doesn’t cost a whole lot, and maybe a couple hundred dollars to rent the chairs for everyone…..
