    i don’t really know which box to choose, we told my sister and a few select relitives the weekend after. I waited to tell my parents for MONTHS, his mom knew the week before and his brothers knew almost right away, maybe with in a week or two.

    We told them a few hours after….by texting a picture of us holding a sign that said “we eloped!” Tongue Out (see profile picture)

    Our families knew of our date and location before the wedding, maybe like 2 weeks prior?  I did plan the whole things in 19 days though.  I also emailed to tell some close friends – friends that were invited to the previous wedding that we had planned.


    I let Facebook do the rest when we returned!
