My dh and I decided that since everyone kept trying to plan our wedding for us to go to the courthouse. We invited close family and most showed up. It was a nice small wedding and my sister and brother and dad threw a surprise reception at a local pizza place it was nice

Why not get married in your dream beach honeymoon spot? If you want to keep it simple, just avoid planning a trip to Vegas, then a honeymoon and do it all at once. Either way, congrats and enjoy it!

Yep. We eloped in vegas. Only been 9 months lol, i dont regret it. We were going to have a big wedding but mil started being controlling and changing everything WE wanted so we said f it and told everyone we are going to vegas come if you want or dont whatever. It was us, dd, my parents, my brother, my aunt and her bf, my other aunt and uncle, a cousin, mil and dh uncle. It was nice.

We got married exactly 2 wks after he formally proposed. JP came to our house and what family could make it and a couple close friends were there. It was so spur of the most of our family wasn't there but we had fun!
I totally get the not wanting to go through huge wedding with kids (6 kids between us!) as long as you're happy, that's what matters! Lol I like the honeymoon idea pp had! Heck we still haven't had one!
