Last question! Have you ever just wish you were eloping instead? I mean, who hasn't been tempted!!

Are you innocent or guilty?

    I've jokingly said we should've, but at the end of the day, I don't think we'll regret having a big wedding.

    Guilty. It's actually what FH and I really wanted in the first place. But being the only girl for 3 generations in my family and him being the baby boy a big wedding was required by both families so we obliged.

    Guilty. I would have loved to elope but I felt like it would have been worse in the long run.

    Guilty! When we got engaged I wanted to elope. My FH was the one who wanted a big wedding!

    Innocent. I can't wait to have the wedding of my/our dreams. Eloping is never something I would consider. Having my mom and dad there to walk me down the isle will be a moment I'll never forget.

    Guilty. Only in the beginning stages when we had sticker shock on how much things really cost. But we would NEVER actually consider it.

    Guilty. Sometimes I really wish we just did a small courthouse wedding and if we had ppl there maybe 6ppl max lol and then used all the money we’ve spent on the wedding to go traveling.

    I’ve thought about it, but my mom would be so upset if we got married without her. Lately, since we haven’t put down deposits on anything or signed any contracts I’ve been thinking about it more. My FH would prefer an elopement or something simpler at least.

    A few times, but I won't change my mind now due to how much I spend on my dress. I only think about it when I realize how much FH and I disagree about wedding things. Haha.

    Guilty but the thought passed quickly.

    Guilty. I am so excited we are having a wedding, but sometimes the stress makes me think is it worth all the trouble when we could just elope?

    I actually wanted to elope but my FH wanted an actual wedding and so did my mother. My mother eloped with my father and I'm the only girl in the family so I felt like I HAD to have a wedding. I'm happy with the way planning is going though so I don't regret it.

    Is it considered eloping if we let our parents and siblings join us? We have decided to do it this way because we didn’t want them to feel left out... we are planning a destination wedding/vacation with just our immediate family members in Italy! I actually need some advice on how to break the news to my relatives and friends... any tips would be helpful!
  • Expert October 2020
    Yes! It’s so much money for one day. If we didn’t have two boys who wanted to be a part of the celebration and his family, etc we would have eloped.

    Oh all the time when the stress builds. When my brother said he refused to wear anything dressy I straight up was like "Nope, I'm not doing this anymore. I'm just going to elope and only invite my mom and his parents."
