This is a big reason why SO and I are semi-eloping. I want the pretty dress, the pictures and my FI. That’s it. Talk to you FI about it, you can plan something beautiful where you live or abroad. Whatever your heart desires. 

I typically don’t like weddings anyway. I feel like I am the one getting married, yet most decisions are made with what the guests would like, or being a good host. Eff that. lol I really don’t care if Aunt Martha doesn’t like the chicken or if cousin Susie is pleased with our favors.

@sablonde:  I hear ya sister! My FI and I have gone through a lot to be together and there were tons of people along the way who didn’t support us during those times. That’s why we’re eloping. Just us. We’ll send out an announcement afterwards. Those who care will congratulate us… I’ve learned it’s about the marriage, not the wedding. Celebrate your love how you see fit 🙂

DW or elope with just the closest people you want there.

@sablonde:  My parents divorced and my father got re-married a year later.  The divorce was an ugly one with everyone taking sides.  My father wasn’t left with many friends or family who supported his new union, so he eloped on a cruise ship with only his mom and his FI’s parents and best friend in attendance.

Do whatever YOU feel is right!  You don’t need a lot of people around you to make it a wedding.  Ask the people you care most about if they want to be a part of it.  If they say yes, then plan something that they can attend.  (For example, if your mom really wants to be there but she can’t afford to attend a DW in Mexico, don’t elope to Mexico.)

@sablonde:  I think you should just make it the two of you. I would have loved to do that but our situation didn’t allow it. You should just elope with your FI somewhere special to the two of you then I have a lovely meal somewhere awesome. 

Would your mom be offended if you eloped?
