ELOPE! I only say that because sometimes I’m your boat too. Like today.

If that’s what you really feel in your heart then elope! Just think deeply about which decision you would regret more – going through with the wedding/reception or eloping? You know the answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I sometimes think about it (because we also are dealing with a fair bit of drama). But when I think about it, I realize I would be disappointed if I didn’t have all my family and friends there with me. Just think about it, and somewhere deep down, you will find your answer =)

For me the money was totally worth it to celebrate with family friends, but the biggest drama I had was trying to find my grandmother a dress… she is so stubborn!  That being said if things were super drama filled I would probably elope and go on a sweet vacation!

good, you’ve decided. There will be struggles, you will get frustrated along the way but in the end,  it will be worth it!!! I’m ready to pull my hairs going nuts planning and spending but at the same time, can’t wait for that special day Smile

Honestly, a BIG part of me wishes we would take the $$$ and run. A little part of me is thrilled we are going to have a special celebration with friends and family.

And the biggest tie breaker – the fiance really wants the wedding. It is important to him and though I have pointed out the stress and work involved, he is adamant.

So, in the end – yes, it will be worth it. We will have our day, his family and mine will be able to share in our union. Note: We are keeping costs relatively low at <12K (numbers are still flying as not everything is finalized) and we will be splurging later on an epic asian honeymoon adventure (albeit much delayed) ๐Ÿ˜€ So everyone is happy!

 

And congratulations on your decision! Keep us posted these coming months! ๐Ÿ˜‰
