Eloping or Destination Wedding sounds like a good idea – a wedding should be fun.

From reading your post, I feel that you know in your heart what you really want to do, and what would make you the happiest.  I also think that if you took the third-person perspective here, and someone was saying to you, “My dream is X and everyone else’s dream for me is Y…” what would your reaction be?

Be strong. Do what you want to do.

Yes, I do feel this way. I will be interested to read the responses because I know I didn’t handle this the right way. I handled this by just staying engaged. LOL the family dramaz.

Perhaps you can get married/elope/honeymoon and your family can plan a celebration for you to attend when you get back. So they can sort out their own plans and demands, and you can enjoy being married.

Forget the stress, and just elope!!

If you go to Miami (Florida), you can have your wedding ceremony on the beach (and dress casual).  You can have just the immediate family – or none at all.  Either way, after you come back home, you can have a big party for all those that want to wish you well.

If you decided to elope, I highly recommend that you check out Tropical Miami Beach Weddings.  We got married with them – and had our ceremony on the beach behind the hotel we were staying at!!!  They were really great!

Here is the link to their website …
