Sometimes the planning stress is just too much! Have you ever thought about ditching the big guest list and saying, “Nope, we’re going to Vegas”?


True or false? I’ve thought about eloping!

    True, but know I would ultimately regret it!

    ****% TRUE. Multiple times. Multiple times a month for a while. Heck, once a day for a while. We were so over the opinions and the stress. But no feeling compared to the wedding day. Would do it again in a heartbeat, planning and all.

    True!!! Just to eliminate the stress once and for all! But ultimately, we are so excited for the wedding that we couldn't imagine not having it!

    Definitely true! This was a few months ago when everything was just so overwhelming and stressful. Now that we have pretty much all of our vendors booked however, I feel much better. lol

    And that's a strong sign that you know yourself very well, Alicia!! That you can admit that future you would not be pleased with eloping! Are you having a small wedding or a larger wedding?

    Ah, now that a lot of the stress sources are gone, are you excited for everything to come? No one thoughts of eloping?

    We kind of wanted to at the start, but his family would have thrown a fit. No one thought he would get married, so if we had taken that from them, it would have been a crap show.

    TRUE! Mostly joking as I'd never actually want that but it's hard not to think of it in the midst of stressful planning!

    True! I’ve thought about this before getting engaged. I love the thought of it just being the two of us.

    True, but we wanted our kids there. So we decided on a small wedding instead.

    True! But I couldn't imagine my mom not being there, and he feels the same way about his parents.

    And how did it end up going over? Do you wish you had eloped in the end?

    Are you eloping, Simone? Or are you having a wedding, intimate or otherwise?

    Hi Maggie, I’m having a microwedding with less than 20 guests. My FH insisted his parents and siblings be present. I knew I would catch Drama from my mom if they were present and my immediate family were not.
