we called off our wedding..

Posted by   + Show Post
Df And I sat down last night and decided that our wedding plans were getting out of control. We both agree that it's silly to spend thousands while trying to buy a house at the same time. So.. we called our closest friends an family and have decided to elope next month instead! I'm so excited! Were going to take 22 of our closest friends and family to Vermont for the weekend next month and do it! I'm so excited I don't have to wait a full year now! :)

Yeah my guest list is 97 people -.- 90 of those are our family members. Only 7 are friends. We are so frustrated right now.

Sounds fun. Dh and I called our mom's almost 10 years ago now on a wensday. Told them be in Cincinnati on Saturday because we where getting married. I got sick of family trying to plan my wedding.

We wanted a wedding with family, but we didn't have a lot of money either. So we had our wedding in church, then a reception at my parent's house afterwards. About 40 people altogether and we had pizza so no one had to cook :) My dress was $65 at a 2nd hand store, and we all changed into sun dresses and shorts at my parents house. It was the best wedding I ever went to, lol :) So relaxed and intimate, we got to talk to every single guest and every kid ate the food without complaint :)

 I love your idea :) I like small weddings best :)

That's how we felt. We had 140 family and only 10 friends. It's insane. I feel like  HUGE weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. The both of us are so excited now.. before we were just dreading paying for everyhting and stressed.  Good luck!!

Thanks, sweetie, and to you as well. We're not dreading for paying for everything, we're more worried about what his mother thinks is ok to do -.-

That's a great way to do it! Our whole family is thrilled we're doing it this way instead.. Except MIL of course. Figures the only one who hasn't offered to pay for anything complains that we should include the entire family.
