    It's just the 2 of us. We got engaged last summer and knew that a big traditional wedding wasn't for us. We both love the idea of getting married barefoot on the beach.

    Of course, if we won the lottery we'd fly our closest family & friends out to join us on the big day :)

That way we can share our joy with complete strangers who will actually be happy for us! So I was wondering how many of you just went together without guests from home? Thanks for your reply's!

      First, I think that it is amazing and inspiring that you and you're ex-husband have worked things out and are renewing your vows. Second, I'm sorry to hear about the lack of support you're receiving from your friends that really has to be hard.

      We're thinking it might be just the two of us and maybe a couple family members if they can scrape up the $$.

      Here are my two cents: RUN AWAY, JUST THE TWO OF YOU, AND GET YOUR MARRIAGE ON! I think that your wedding should be YOUR wedding and it should be done however you choose. It is very difficult to shrug off people's opinions and thoughts when it comes to your decision. Our decision to have a destination wedding has received a lot of negative and positive criticism and the worst part is my mom might not go because her husband can't get a passport for legal reasons! But, even with that thrown out there I know I that we weren't happy planning a wedding back home and we're still going forward with our dreams of Punta Cana because this is our new journey in life, not our families/friends. Why not do everything you want to do and not what everyone tells you to do, right? My best advice is to put your guard up and stick to your guns. If you want to run away to a beautiful beach to renew your vows with your ex-husband, then you do it. I also think you should tell your friends that they should support your decisions because this is a decision to ensure your happiness and what friend doesn't support another’s happiness?

      All I have to say is you only get one shot at this crazy thing called life so live it that way. Good luck with everything!

        I am in total agreement with Sara. My FI and I are just going off the two of us for various reasons: we just don't have the $$ and also we both love the idea of just "running away" and getting married barefoot on the beach, really - just the two of us. We are both very casual, no-fuss, unconvential people...so this type of wedding is SO US and it totally fits our lifestyle and who we are as a couple; after all, isn't it our wedding?! Once we both made the decision to have a solo wedding...the planning actually became fun.

        When we get back, we are having a AHR with all of our family and friends to celebrate, where we will show our wedding pics and ceremony video. We are really looking forward to it. If we win the lottery b/t now and next year, then we will be having guests...but what are the chances of that happening!?

        I say go for it; after all, it's YOUR wedding not other people's. I think once a guest is invited, it ceases being about the two of you. Have a big party, with those who actually support you, when you get back. You won't regret it.
