    I would love to elope! I love the idea of it just being two people who love each other. I’ve tried to talk my SO into this but he doesnt like the idea of it either…. strange considering I thought most men would love the idea of a less stressed bride! hehe

    Fiance and I were going to do this. But he REALLY didn’t want to. So, I said he didn’t HAVE to. But I wish we would have. πŸ™

    I did it!! We got married in a tiny little ceremony a few weeks ago, but we are still doing a wedding with friends and family in March. It was incredibly romantic, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

    I totally tried to convince Fiance to do it. We were in NOLA for the anniversary of Katrina and I thought it would have been the most amazing time to do it!.

    He always jokes that Katrina was the best thing that every happened to him because if it wasn’t for Katrina I would have gone straight to law school instead of deciding to spend a year volunteer teaching overseas… where we met and fell in love πŸ˜€

    He had never been and I thought it would be great to turn a really anniversary in my life into a positive one! However he didn’t go for it… a few weeks later he said we should have done it. Looks like we’ll be eloping in Paris insted πŸ˜‰

    i have been thinking about this as well! like it would be really cool to just go and get married. i kind of dont like waiting and just love thought of being his wife and want it to happen like yesterday! i would so elope now and then have the real thing in may but i dont think it would be the same

    and i know our families would be mad that they werent there for the first “real” thing. FH jokingly said once “ok lets just go get married now” and i said “ok, would so go down to the courthouse with you right now” and he said “no, you want a real wedding, were not doing it” Frown no such luck for me haha

    I personally could never do it. Our wedding day isn’t just about us, its about our families too. I want to share the “real thing” with them.

    Years ago on the show “Mad About You” there was an episode about Jaime and Paul and their wedding and the ended up getting married the night before there actual wedding by a sewer worker who could perform ceremonies. I remember at the time thinking, that is the greatest idea-takes some pressure off so you can just enjoy the day. I picked my date-specifically for the date so I don’t know that I would do this, but I think for some, especially the more anxious brides, it is not a bad idea.
