Hi Ladies – just back from an amazing 2 week weddingmoon/wedding/honeymoon trip. We decided this trip would be just the 2 of us and we wouldn’t be inviting any guests. Leading up to it, I wondered if we were doing the right thing (while most people were supportive, there were some negative comments from some of our family). I didn’t know if I would miss having others there to share in our day. Well I just wanted to say that it was perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing. Our wedding was truly just about us and it was perfect and completely stress and nerve free! When I read some of these posts on Weddingbee about all the drama and planning etc . . . weddings can create, I know that a big wedding was not for me. I wanted to enjoy myself and I wouldn’t have if I was stressed and nervous etc. . . . So just wanted to say for those of you on the fence about an elopement, go for it!
We are celebrating with family and friends next month at a party and it is so nice that the pressure of a wedding is off and we can just enjoy the party!

@Melchucki: Congrats!! If you don’t mind me asking, where did you elope?? We are “planning our elopement” (contradictory, I guess!) and are always looking for suggestions!

Mr TTR and I are Encores… and we too opted to Elope to a sunny Destination Wedding (just the 2 of us on the Beach saying our Vows). It was FANTASTIC !!
We certainly got some “complaints” from Friends & Family Members… at first. They were a bit “miffed” that we chose not to share our special day with them… but so be it. We both have had the BIG White Pouffy Wedding Experience before… and we chose to skip the drama !!
And we are happy we did… our Wedding was extremely stress free
(Ok except for the wicked case of butterflys I got while getting dressed beforehand… but he made those all go away when he saw me in my dress and my complete look from head to toe)
And our Back Home Reception was a great party… and the cool thing… NO EXPECTATIONS. We were able to design it as we chose. We had an evening event… Cocktails & Hors d’ouevres – Cake & Champagne – DJ & Dancing. We dressed casually (altho I did choose to go all white)… had a Wedding Cake & a Cake Cutting… and a first dance… but that was it no great hoopla. Just a lot of fun times with some of our best friends.
It was awesome !!
I am sure yours will be similar.
Again, BEST WISHES to you & your Hubby.
