ever thought of a destiation wedding? just family and maybe a few friends? that way you can get married and incorporate the honeymoon as well.

there were so many times i wanted to just run away and do it but i felt the same as you, i dont want to look back and regret not walking down the isle or having my closest friends and family around me.

You could always go to the courthouse and then have a celebration reception later! Or you could do a small and intimate Destination Wedding. Maybe something like what Mrs Nachos did. I wanted to elope a million times throughout our engagement but Im glad I didnt because I loved our wedding! However having a wedding is definitely not for everyone!

How about eloping then having a reception when you get back.

Thats what Fiance and I are doing. I feel like with that you get the best of both worlds.

You get an intimate wedding, that is truely just the two of you and then you get to celebrate with your friends and family after.

I think spending money on a house is a MUCH better investment than a wedding.

@SoontobeMrsA: i think that is a beautiful idea! i can picture it now – you can def keep it small and intimate that way and keep the cost down since you dont have to rent a venue. do you have friends that cook? maybe they can do a family style dinner – use lanterns or christmas lights for some mood lighting – pretty cheap  stuff – can i help plan! haha i really wanted a small intimate wedding outside somewhere but under our circumstances i couldnt do either 🙁

@SoontobeMrsA:I can hear the wheels turning all the way over here!

I honestly think it sounds perfect
