    Is there anyone who is having a wedding with just the bride and groom, NO GUEST? Maybe its just stress but I am seriously considering just having a private ceremony on the beach with out the guest. Im getting tired of worrying about who can afford to attend and who cant. I want three bridesmaids but my fiance's friends cant afford to go so that means I have no one to escort my bridesmaids. Its just all beginning to be too much.

      My boss went to the DR a couple of years ago and they got married by themselves, they said they wouldn't have had it any other way :) Good luck

        Well, we are doing it that way and it was the best decision we've made! Like you, I was worrying too much about who would be able to afford to go, who we would invite, how we were going to pay for it all, etc. Now, there's no stress! Our loved ones weren't too keen on the idea at first, but once we told them we were having a celebration when we get back they were all gung ho! I say do what's right for you and FI, and everything else will fall into place.

          My neighbours got married two years ago in Mexcio just the two of them... They had tons of friends that could probably have gone and family.... Their issues was the brides mother and the father were in a bitter divorce that had dragged on for a number of years. She just couldn't got there with either of them. They came back married didn't tell a sole until they returned. They both have said it was the most incrediable time of their lives. It'll be you big day no matter how small it is.

            I am not, but my friend just did. They got married in Hawaii last month. Told no one until after. They wanted a stress free wedding and got it!!

              We started out that way, but now some family and friends have decided they wanted to attend. So what started as a stress- less worry free wedding planning has now turned into an all out stress-full wedding planning.

                We too wanted to away on our own, with maybe just a BM & MOH, but it just didn't work that way.

                  We are having a very small amount of guests. Just my kids and my MOH, her husband and a Best Man and his wife., thats it so far. I had planned on just going and coming back married but my best friend just assumed the role of MOH lol so it grew a bit there

                      I am thinking of doing a destination weddng in playa area with just the two of us.  it has been so stressful trying to figure out how to plan a large wedding, and it really is just about the two of us.  i think it will be really nice and intimate.  i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for resorts/hotels for this type of wedding?  Most of the packages I see are geared towards weddings with guests.  just curious.  Thanks!
