@Jas00: Thanks Jas
@aussiemum1248: Yeah I think telling the parents and saying what we are doing (not that we think or what do you think…) then they just have to deal with it.
@mdcmod: I’m already getting quotes for video and photo haha. We might just buy a go-pro and do a film of the whole trip 🙂
@Quicksand: True, cant please everyone can you.
@lina010: Hawaii??? Lol.
@FutureDrAtkins: That sounds perfect for you!
@canadajane: Can’t agree with you more, it makes me so mad that there is so much hype about who to have and what to have. We already didnt want real flowers or thankyou gifts or centrepeices, it still would be the same at the end of the day. Funnily, it still adds up tho!
@LoggerHead91207: I hear you – I get social anxiety, cant think of anything worse than 85 pairs of eyes staring at you! Lets both Elope!
@NauticalDisaster: Thanks hun. I’m sending you one back! I have my dress too and I LOVE it but I would have picked a different one if we were actually eloping. I am going to keep it and wear the crap out of it, if you love it then why not. Otherwise could you sell it? As far as family is concerned – Its hard isnt it. I went through this yesterday till Fi reminded me that we will still have a party which made me feel better.
@KingsDaughter: Lol, I got a $3K dress for $1K second hand in excellent condition but yep I keep thinking thats how I will feel. Really want to have an amazing honeymoon and a pretty ceremony over a reception for everyone else ( I know i wont eat, ill be stressing) so eloping and a great holiday and a party when we come back seems like the best thing. About the same cost really but a lot more fun!! Thanks for your 2c haha, much appreciated
@SheenaLynn: yup! We have our house and would love to pay it off more, plus I have a 55K degree to pay for annnnnd we are starting businesses and having children in a few years…. that money could be used on a lot of other things. I already know im not going to have a great day.
Good Idea, I find it hard tho, as we will probably only tell the parents…. We talk it out a lot but I think we have made our mind up now. Parents will be upset as will family and friends but its just so much hype, if we were doing anything else there wouldnt be this pressure.
If we didnt have to wait a month for a licence to be cleared to get married here then it would have been different. We have nothing like vegas here… might be a good thing tho! Ekkk so hard isnt it!! I hope it all goes the easiest way possible! Local might be easier if family is coming accross countries to get there.
