I could have just written your post!!  I think most brides go though the same wedding related drama, and more than once have I almost said screw it let’s just go elope!  Remember it’s your day and it’s about you and your Fiance, nobody else!  Best of luck on your planning!

Fiance and I have actually decided to throw in the towel on our 120 person wedding recently. Too stressed out by the prospect of upsetting people that we were getting depressed by any and all wedding planning. So we’re going to elope sometime this winter.

Good luck!

I tried planning a small wedding… and then my parents started throwing oh well you gotta invite your aunta and uncles (I was going for under 50 people) and you gotta invite this person and bla bla bla bla bla…. 

Now we are going to the Dominican and it is an open invitation! Every one is invited and if they want to come they will and if they don’t well whoop-de-do-da!

Ohh the parents trying to get their way with your guest list. Mine want to invite some of their friends that have nothing to do with Fi and I, are not important to us and we don’t even like!

Just cuz these people invited my parents to their kid’s wedding. I’m sorry but I don’t care, they’re not invited to mine.
