    Do you mind if I ask you why some members of your family do not approve?

    Your family are going to have to come to terms with the fact that your FH is going to be integrated into their family now – although it doesn’t have to be much, depending on how things go – and I think that you really want them to be there, or that’s what I gather from your post.

    I also was wondering if you would elaborate on why your family doesn’t approve and how you know they don’t approve.  I understand if you don’t feel comfortable sharing but based on what the answers are it may be completely appropriate for you to not invite those members.

    We’re 100% eloping – just the two of us.  I am a person who fully believes that it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.  It’s your marriage, your decision.  Good luck!

    I think either a traditional elopement or a small destination wedding would suit your needs best.  Really, the deciding factor for me would be the amount of planning you’d like to do – the latter being a bit more involved than the former.

    OK given what you’ve stated about the history I voted go to the JOP and have a party afterward.  At your actual marriage ceremony with the JOP it can be just the two of you, or a few VERY select family members so that when you are actually joining in marriage all you feel is love.  Have a party afterwards where everyone can come celebrate with you.  That way, you get your special moment, but no one’s feelings are hurt.

    My Fiance and I are eloping :). It is just easier this way, because we are not fans of being the centre of attention, and we love the intimacy of it as well. Whatever you two decide, I wish you the best of luck :).
