I wish I was that courageous to stand up to my mom. Do what is best for you. 2K is so much better than the cost of a regular wedding!

sumshine.dawn:  YAY!! Hawaii sounds beauitful! I know you said you’re in SoCal right? Have you thought about the bahamas? It’s a little cheaper to get there than Hawaii

sumshine.dawn:  Congrats on the decision! I hated wedding planning as well, so much stress caused by family and friends and it just no longer felt like we were planning our special day. When we looked at eachother and said, “let’s just elope” it was the best feeling in the world. We eloped in Alaska, but we love cold weather and nature so it worked out perfect for us. Hawaii and Maine are both beautiful options, you can’t go wrong no matter what you decide. I look forward to seeing more updates as you continue to plan your amazing elopement! 🙂

Congratulations!! We eloped and it was SO fun and intimate and we have no regrets. I hope you love your elopement just as much! 

I’ve never been to Hawaii but Maine is pretty close to me (Nova Scotia). That’s a pretty big difference in temperatures this time of year! Do you want hot, or cold and snowy? Would you do things like snowshoeing, skiing, renting a cabin with a wood stove, if you did Maine? Cause that would be damn romantic!

Congrats hon! We eloped too and though our families were not happy, it showed them that we make the decisions for our marriage and not them. We wanted to have a wedding at first but the cost and interference was too awful. 

As for where to elope, it all depends what kind of backdrop and weather you want. Hawaii sounds great but it is expensive. I don’t know if cost is a consideration for you. If it is, why not look into Jamaica for a destination elopement? Maine is beautiful if you want a winter setting.
