I saw your comment on my slideshow and wedding at riverview. Was thinking that maybe you could contact them about just having your ceremony there?? Do you have a family member with a rather large back yard?  maybe you can have something with your family there? That way you get all those things you think you’d missout on and all of your family and friends? Are your parents contributing?

We were similar to your situation.. we first wanted to go away with about 20 people but I didnt want to miss out on the big party. so we kept it around 80, mostly my family (he had about 14 family members there) but it was worth it to us.

My Fiance and I just decided to ditch the huge wedding ’cause it isn’t ‘us’. I do think it would be cool to have a get together after so you both can show your pictures etc. That way everyone close to you can feel included- without breaking the bank! >.<

We ditched the garden wedding we planned because of cost. It just seemed crazy to spend $400 to reserve a garden just for a 30 minute ceremony! plus, the courthouse has some beautiful trees so we will get the same feel 🙂

When we mentioned a courthouse wedding to our parents they were %100 on board! Turns out my FI’s parents eloped and mine just ran to the pastors house and got hitched. It’s practically a tradition!XD It’s my friends that keep encouraging us to have a bigger better wedding a year later, but I think they just want an excuse to party
