We've put if off long enough !! Been engaged for a year n half and have yet to set a date. Jus curious if ya cud do all over would you have "eloped" or happy with the traditional wedding ? I'm in favor of eloping jus the two of us and coming back to have the PARTY !! I think she's game for whatever, its Mom thats wanting the full blown Catholic wedding. I'm all for less hastle. So whats everyone's thoughts and opinions on "eloping" (any recommendations)? My thinking is because our family and friends are in two diff states and very large groups at that.
