Elope or Wedding?

So it's my second marriage & his first. We both have children. He hates being the center of attention. My family & I aren't very close so the idea of hosting a wedding where there will be little side comments & negativity is less than appealing to me. However, the idea of eloping kinda makes me feeling cheated if that makes any sense. Thoughts?

Have a small wedding. Only invite people you truly like.

Destination Wedding!    Take the kids (or just the two of you) and go on a cruise, or Hawaii, ot wherever you like and get married.   Romantic or family oriented... your choice.   It will be fun, special and just yours.

Boys2men, we are actually considering doing that with just the 2 of us. :-) it's just hard when you have a huge family & still feel alone.

My df and I are planning a destination wedding on the beach in North Carolina in August with just our parents, grandparents and about 20 of our closest friends. Still get to have the people we love there but without inviting all the people we'd feel obligated to if we had a wedding here.

A simple one should really matter. Like others were saying destination wedding. It's about the marriage, a wedding is just one day.

Dh and I went to Vegas. We really didn't elope since we told everyone what we were doing. It was a blast and I would live to go back.
