My fiance and I are talking about doing a courthouse wedding (or having someone go to the place where he proposed... it's gorgeous) with just our parents and daughter present and going to a lunch/dinner afterwards, and then doing a big ceremony in a couple years to renew our vows. I like this idea, and he does too, but my family probably won't.. they're very traditional.. but nothing about our relationship is traditional (ie, age, how we met, we had DD before marriage, etc)... lol.

So I guess I'm doing this more to see what's "normal" anymore. Or I'm just curious... lol.

 We had our wedding in hubs mom's backyard.  It was small wedding but the weather was beautiful.  Our reception was just a cookout, and that was 7 yrs ago and we're still married!

I'm not married, yet, but I'm going to reply anyways. I think what you & your Fiance want to do is great, if it's what you want and it makes ya'll happy. Everybody is different and want different things. I know when its our turn, SO & I are having a big wedding. It doesn't matter to us that it will be his 2nd and my 3rd. We want to share with our friends & family the love and happiness we found after the bad. You know? So do what makes you guys happy. That is all that really matters.

i loved our court house wedding. it was cheap quick and easy I didn't care how I was married to hin just as long as we were married. it meant alot to me that we were before the baby was born we had already engaged about three or four months before.

We married in Germany, where a courthouse (Standesamt) wedding is the law. A religious ceremony afterwards is optional, which we did not elect. It was small, just 2 of his friends, 2 of mine, my sister and her family, and my 2 children. Afterwards we had a brief reception at my sister's. Neither of us wanted anything big, in fact, we just wanted to get it over with.

 We had a backyard wedding with about 50 people.  His 3 girls were my bridesmaids.  It was perfect for me!

Courthouse with just us and my son as a witness. Like you our relationship,how we met , having one son before we married ( he passed away @ 22 wks) and then pregnant again before getting married. We wanted a wedding with family and friends in Cali but couldn't afford it at the time and we agreed when he asked a me that we would get married in 8 months. The only regret is I wish my Dad could have been there, he passed away this June so he never bit to meet his new granddaughter and my husband.

My husband and I just got married last week at the courthouse with just our immediate families present, we went to a nice dinner afterwards. We have a more formal ceremony/reception planned for March.
