I understand exactly what you are saying. If I could get away with it, I would elope too!

I dream about eloping every night I go to bed. My family is not american so different traditions are killing me. I want to elope and just come back and have a nice bbq 4 everyone.

Omg. I completely know how you feel. We say once a week that we’re eloping. Honestly, the planning isn’t as fun as people make it out to be. It’s a ton of work, hounding ppl, haggling with vendors, trying to make everyone happy, and MONEY.

But, that said, you will get through it and be happy you did. Just try to focus on the aspects of the wedding that make you happy. Maybe even ask some people to handle aspects that you don’t want to. My dad is doing all the arrangements for the hotel, father-in-law is doing all the limo stuff, and Fiance is doing our very elaborate favors. And I’m focusing on the dresses, flowers, and music right now ๐Ÿ™‚ Just one day at a time!

Good luck…just breathe! *smooch*

This is exactly what we did. We were planning a wedding for 11.11.11, but were kind of slacking on actually getting things done. The guest list just kept growing, and finally one day, we basically said “Fuck it, we’re eloping.” We planned a courthouse ceremony and a small, intimate reception the day after. And once we made that decision, all the stress just disappearead. It was wonderful. Granted, we had more time to make that decision than you do (we were a year out when we scrapped the big wedding plans), but it’s still not too late, if eloping is really what you want to do!

Eloping is definitely something to consider seriously! I know I personally would be so sad if we eloped. While the planning is super stressful, I cannot WAIT until the big day. So many little details, but when it finally comes together in a big way, it will be worth it.

That said, it is all about what you want and can handle. Listen to your heart…like a cheesy song ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with you. We are having a ceremony but keeping it small… I hate hate hate all the stereotypical ‘wedding bliss’ attitude some people have about ceremonies, though! FH and I want to have a fun night but we’re really not shouting ‘this is our day’ to everyone. our simple, non-traditional wedding is perfect!

i want to elope too! I hate asking people for things and I hate it even more when you ask someone for a small favor (hey can I have that seamstress’ phone number) and they act as if you asked them to kill someone for you?? yes I am speaking from a very recent personal experience..

ughhhh just want the day to be here and to enjoy it and be married already!!!!!!!!!

@pandaboo: amen! With 17 days to go I am so over the wedding hype. Almost to the point where if there was a button and I could fast-forward to the moment we slip out of the reception, I would!
