Hi everyone! My fiancé and I got engaged this January and we’re planning on having a wedding here in Arizona February of 2023. We are having a long engagement because wedding venues and weddings in general are extremely expensive for 2 college students, so it’s going to take us a while to save for a 17k wedding not including the honeymoon. Over the last couple of days I have been thinking about getting eloped in Washington state around the trees and mountains (I want all of the twilight vibes), which I believe would be a lot cheaper than to have a full on wedding and we would be able to get married sooner than a year and a half but if we decide to do that I am scared I will regret not having all of our 100 guests there. For those who got eloped instead of having a wedding did you regret it?? I love people and I love the idea of having everyone around me while I get married but do I really want that for 17k? Or do I want to go up to my favorite state and have a small elopement with my parents, his parents and a few friends?
