This is really what my husband wanted when we were planning, but I knew it was mportant to the kids.  What about doing a civil ceremony at the courthouse or somewhere special with a Justice of the Peace, would they be up for that?

Can you elope somewhere closer to home, and bring the kids with you? (And then maybe Paris for your honeymoon?)  That way they can still get dressed up and feel part of it, and if it’s some place fun, the getting-a-vacation aspect might win out over the wanting-a-big-party.

I have a fun idea and think all might like it!

Why not get really married with the kids and the whole shebang at Paris, the vegas resort?  It’s got an Eiffel tower.  You can have all the flowers, fun, and finery.  Then do as another poster suggested and a few months later just the two of you jet off to Paris.  Btw, there’s a gorgeous elopement to Paris on the site http://www.intimateweddings.com from a few months back.  Gorgeous!  And very romantic.  But you can recreate alot of the city of lights in the city of lights in the US (vegas)!

I’m in the same boat.  Our kids want the wedding.  I’d be happy jetting off to St. Lucia.  So we’re having a week at the beach w/family and friends and a wedding.  Our honeymoon will be later (St. Lucia).

Btw, there’s alot of fun family things to do in vegas, along w/side trips to the hoover dam and maybe grand canyon?

Take the kids with you to the Justice of the Peace….the older kids can be witnesses if they are 18 or older. Then have a nice dinner afterwards….then Paris or bust!! That way…everybody is happy and you can enjoy Paris knowing you are already husband and wife.
