Five years ago today...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
DH and I decided to elope. We were sitting among the choices of flower arrangements, brides maids dresses, and if we were going to serve a vegan meal or not.

At that moment I started to cry. The day seemed so much more about other people than it did about us. He looked at me and said, "Why don't we get married in two weeks. We'll give ourselves 24 hours to plan everything, and we'll just call everyone and see if they want to come."

One day later I had my rings, dress, justice of the peace, and location. All for under $500.00.

That small decision saved our relationship.

Congrads! That's exactly why Scott and I decided to go to Vegas! Well, that and Scott doesn't like being the center of attention.

I remember my mom offered me the money they would have spent on my wedding if I eloped instead of having the wedding, dinner etc.......

I didn't take her up on it though.

Happy Anniversary!

I wish my boyfriend would just do something like that. I really don't want to spend a ton of money on a wedding, I'd rather put a down payment on a house or something. My boyfriend insists on having a big fancy wedding when we get married though.
