Wedding advise?

Hello ladies,

Question for you. We sent out our save the dates a few months ago. After, planning deeper and deeper we realized that we don't want a wedding. We want to elope! So, how do we go about telling everyone? Especially my fiance's family, they really are the only ones who want this!

Re: Wedding advise?

  • Are you still going to have some sort of reception when you get back?

    If so, you could send out cards that say something like, "We've had a change of plans: We're eloping! We hope you will join us for a reception when we return..."

    The reception could also be a way to compromise with your ILs. You get what you want, and they can still feel like they have some sort of event to plan.

    Don't worry about what everyone else thinks, though. It's your wedding and you can do whatever you want. Good luck!

  • That's a tough one.  It's your big day so do what you believe will truly make you happy.  If you decide to go ahead and cancel the wedding, be very diligent about making sure every single invite recipient is contacted.  It would be really embarrassing if someone showed up.  Like the above mentioned, maybe still have the reception to celebrate with family.  Having it at the same time/location if possible might help to avoid any further confusion for people.

     Either way you decide to go, hope your big day is everything you dream of! :)
