What you said! I have zero regrets. It really did feel like the start of an adventure rather than the culmination of a lot of hard work and money spent followed by a come-down (note: this is my impression of what a more traditional wedding would have been like for myself. I make no assumption about anybody else’s experience).

We are inviting his immediate family (who won’t show) and my adoptive parents and biological brother. Not inviting the rest of my adoptive siblings and I didn’t even want Anyone. Not that we don’t love our families it’s just I wanted the day to be about us and not drama, expenses, or anything else. My siblings (other than brother) will probably be upset when they find out but I don’t care at this point..

I’m glad it works for you and it is what you want. I entertained the idea but simply couldn’t do it. Neither of us have been married before so I know my parents (and probably his mom) would be sad to nit see us get hitched. Our honeymoon will be our alone time and I already can’t wait. Hoping for not too much stress in planning a traditional wedding!

My only suggestion would be to Video the ceremony and play it on a big screen at the reception?! then they get to see it without being there to stress you?! this may make it a little better. Then they still see you get married?!
