    We haven't planned out for the whole trip practically except for the actual wedding part. We're getting married at 4 pm and I'm having my hair done at 11 am ... other than that I have no idea. Since it's just us and we only have the photographer for an hour, I doubt we'll do much other than the wedding and photos afterward. Sweet and simple I hope!! ;-)

      I had my legal day today!!! yay.... I wanted to do it before leaving, which is next week and I am so excited. It was a little informal as FI just came back from Iraq and had to rush from his base (today was his last day there and Im so relieved) to make it on time but he made it. Here are some pics

          You know, I think doing it "just the two of us" style is such a wonderful idea. This is my 2nd wedding as well and I had the fairytale wedding the first time around. It's funny because planning this one is so different. I don't care about all the little details like I did before....it totally stressed me out. Really, all I really need is the two of us. Your day, your way.....and there would be no one else you have to please but the two of you. Then come back home and throw a big 'ol party!!

            I am so glad I found this board, we were initially planning a dw for 50-75, but the more that we think about it we would rather save that money on a down payment on a house. So we are now contemplating have a 2wk island hop wedding/honeymoon.

              We are getting married at the Excellence Riviera Cancun in Sept...just the 2 of us. It's a second marriage for both of us and we really wanted to keep it simple, private, and meaningful.

              Planning has been nice. There really isn't much to do....dress, rings, and the WC at the ERC has been wonderful. She has been very helpful in answering all my questions and helping me make all my decisions. I am SO glad we decided to go by ourselves.

              Only 57 days left (not that I'm counting or anything!!)

                  It is just going to be me and fiancĀ© too. We are getting guilt trips from both parents. I just wish they could wish us well and be happy that we are happy. We are not doing this to hurt anyones feelings. It is just what we want to do. *Sigh* just had to vent a little LOL

                    Great thread! My FI and I are doing just the 2 of us as well, getting married on April 7, 2010 at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica (we've been there 3 times already for previous vacations). Luckily, I have always known I wanted this type of wedding, so my parents were prepped since I was much younger and they don't mind at all. FI's family was more surprised, but when I explained my reasons, they understood. We are also having an informal family BBQ when we return. Trouble is, we both have enormous families, so it is hard to keep it simple and small. We are thinking no children will help trim the numbers down so that we can still have it in our backyard.

                    I just ordered my dress the other day. I was having the same troubles as a lot of people here- everything was too poofy or ornate for me. Finally, I found a wonderful small bridal boutique in NJ and the girl helping me suggested I order a bridesmaid's dress since they are simpler, and then just order it in white! I found the perfect dress, plus they have someone on staff who can add some custom bead work to it. So really it will be a unique, custom dress in the end. And the price.... $240 for the dress, plus maybe about another $100 for the alterations and beading. Can't beat that!

                    Here's the link.

                    Jasmine Bridal

                    You can click the white color swatch to see it in white.

                    Maybe you can find a retailer near you who sells Jasmine Bridal. I had considered ordering online from Nordstrom, etc, but getting to try it on is super helpful.

                      Mega Change In Plans!!! We're ELOPING!!!!

                      I'm so happy I don't even know how to express it. It's like one humongous EXHALE!!!!

                      I think it was this thread, or a similar one, where I said I wish I could elope but it wasn't a possibility for me.....well thank goodness FIs family isn't up for traveling!!!
                      My family is going to be very upset with me, since I'm the first "child" to marry on both my mom's and dad's side......but I'll just deal with it.

                      I never thought FI would be okay with this, but now I just get to relax and plan a day special for just us two. I'm so relieved and excited
