Because I have absolutely zero interest in having a wedding. Because I have very bad anxiety and don’t like being around a bunch of people or having a lot of people looking at me. Because I just want to be married, not have a big thing of it. Because his sister is a B. Because for us it’d be an insane waste of money. (Let me clarify that I don’t think weddings are a waste of money if you want one! I’m saying specifically for us). But mostly it’s just because of the first thing I listed! Just not interested. (And FH feels the same of course).

kgr9 :  I have to admit I don’t actulally enjoy other peoples weddings either, I cosidered a small wedding, but then I realized the only reason I was considering it was because of how other people would feel and that is not the way to go about it. It is a special day for my fiance and I and we should do what feels right for us, so eloping it is. 🙂

I love weddings, but every single one that ive attended has always had me thinking “I would never want to do all this myself.” Big, small, cheap, expensive… nice for them, not for me.

Theres a lot of weirdness between all of our parents, and having them all in the same room would give me so much more stress than it would be worth. I want to have a meaningful day thats just about me and my partner, and including other people would just make it impossible to enjoy.
