Hi Ladies,

Did you and your DH elope? Tell me about your experience. Did you tell your family before or after you eloped? Where did you decide to elope?

=)

If you didn't elope and you had to go back and do your wedding over, would you spend more money or less?

We couldn't elope because we had to get our parents permission (we were underage) lmao. But we never had a wedding or anything... No regrets.

Well ... We didn't elope but, we did go to Vegas! I wouldn't change things for the world! Everyone knew and everyone was invited. Those who could came. We then went to Disneyland for three days and then spent a night in San Clemente (sp?). We both got tats at Venice Beach.

I secretly eloped. Don't recommend that. Didn't tell anyone for 8 weeks.

we eloped.. told family afterwards.  they knew we were getting married they just didnt know when.  we just picked a day we were both off work and went to get a liscense and picked a name off the list they gave us for people who could marry us and walked over there.

Quoting MissMissfit:

I pre-planned eloped with my ex-husband when i was 19. My parents knew. I don't know if his did. Hardly any of my friends knew. I regretted it for many reasons...most being who i married and why. ...

I just got married again (im 27 now) and we did the medium sized fancy wedding. It was so stressful. I don't regret it bc the end result was SOOOO much fun, but i will never ever ever do it again. It was expensive and stressful. Worth it, but I'm happy i will never go through it again.

Thanks for your reply. SO and I have been putting of marriage because I have been in college ever since we met without a break. I'm finally graduating this December and I'm thinking I just want to elope. I hate the idea of getting stressed out with the wedding process so I dunno.. I'm definitely curious to hear everyone's stories =)

We did. We got married in the back seat of a limo, driving down the strip in Vegas, just the two of us.

How did your family react when they found out?

I eloped the first time around. We we're supposed to have a wedding but I got a surprise (pregnant) & suddenly, I didn't want the stress that goes along with weddings. Only our parents knew....they went with us to the courthouse.

Second time we had a low-key, informal but BAD ASS wedding:) Took only 2 months to plan.
