I think that’s a great idea. I see NOTHING wrong with eloping. And technically it’s only an elopement if no one is invited anyway. It’s personal and easy. There’s no need for a big fancy day if you’re not into that!

I just looked at the date and you’re eloping on my bday! I’ll be thinking about you!

So excited for you!  Love your Pinterest board!  I think it’s awesome to still care about style even if you’re not having an over-the-top themed wedding.  I am hoping for my Fiance to find a three-piece grey suit for our elopement as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Best wishes and congrats!!

I’m so happy for you! We’re eloping also and planning what we’ll wear, the ceremony venue, etc. It is so much less stress knowing we don’t have a long list of people we need to please!

Jeez Juniper… not only could we trade RINGS, we could virtually trade weddings!  We did almost the same thing, went away by ourselves, only the photog, and witness (although since we married in a public place, a crowd of over 100 poeple gathered, so I guess we technically had “guests” lol).  We got ready together, and he left right before I put my dress on so we could still have a first look.  We walked to the venue together with the photog snapping away, married, took some more shots, then hit the local pub for a few pints before heading out for an amazing dinner.  I wore a full-on floor length dress, and a tulle birdcage.

My Fiance a & I are going to the Cayman Islands by ourselves as well.  The term Eloping never crossed my mind.  We both had been married before and had the big weddings so this time we thought how much fun it would be to go and get married somewhere fabulous.  Family & friends all support us with our decision.  Planning is a breeze!  We bought a sunset wedding package with a Cayman Wedding Planner and she takes it from there.  Really we just need to show up.  I can’t wait!!!

Love your pinterest boards btw.

Beautiful pics on your pinterest!

We’re doing the same thing. The original plan was long-term planning a ‘proper’ wedding, but just the initial planning was rubbing us the wrong way… So we decide to elope to NYC in the spring, just us and our daughter. We’re totally on the same page as you and your partner – I’m wearing a short dress (I think I’m going for grey as I don’t want to look super bride-y everywhere we go!), he’ll wear a suit, and we’ll do some pretty pictures and a delicious yummy dinner.

Congrats on your happy, stress-free plans ๐Ÿ™‚

WONDERFUL!!

I love your ‘pintrest’, your notification cards, your dress choices and especially love the brooch bouquet.  We are having a Destination Wedding in Sept and I am doing something very similar with my bouquet – but instead of brooches I have asked the lovely ladies around me to make me a ‘flower stem’ made from felt and buttons.  That way it is bespoke, kitsch, and everyone I love can be ‘with me’ even though we will be thousands of miles away.

Enjoy your happy stressfree planning, and enjoy your beautiful day
