Don’t worry about other people.  We’re eloping and will have no one there.  That’s the way I wanted it because I didn’t want to have to plan all the BS nonsense. 

You can always have a very small wedding with family only.  You don’t need the big over-the-top affair. 🙂

You could have a very small intimate wedding with immediate family members to compromise…?

If you want to elope, elope.  Your loved ones will forgive you.

I am in your EXACT same boat! My dad said that he would jsut give me the money if I didn’t waist it on a wedding, where my mom wants me to have a wedding. We are going to have 10 people max to make family happy and that is about it! I just don’t want to waist my life  or money planning one day> Another thing, half the people that are invited to weddigns don’t want to go anyway. I think you should elope!

Destination wedding with your parents and his kids.  Plan to extend your stay a few more days or a week after they all fly home.

Otherwise, elope.  Weddings are very stressful and although some people may be disappointed to miss your nuptials you can always have a party to celebrate your marriage when you return.

I may be wrong but I’m guessing his mom and his kids will be ok. They’ve done it once, if not twice, before. They’re probably just excited to have you as a member of the family.

After reading this board, it seems that brides that aren’t strong willed have the roughest times planning they’re wedding. If you’re already stressing out over hurting people’s feelings, I would suggest eloping. Don’t do it to yourself.
