Eloping VS having guests- please help!
Posted 25 October 2009 - 10:38 AM
All along my FI and I have planned to have about 20-30 guests at our destination wedding in Mexico...I am now considering going back to school, which would put us in a tight financial situation for a year or so. My dad is saying that if we eloped in Mexico he would give us the money that he would be paying towards his travel+the ceremony/reception in Mexico for savings. My mom is already loaning me the money to go back to school. I really cannot delay going back to school because of the type of program I am considering getting into.
My question is- should we just elope and have a few (4ish) close friends attend with us and not ask our parents to make the trip?
Should we go with our plan from the beginning? Inviting a number of guests and our parents?
We are having a traditional AHR at a country club in our hometown, this cannot be changed because non-refundable money has already been put down.
I know this is a personal decision, but I just wanted to see if any of you could share any insightful thoughts that maybe I have overlooked!
Thanks in advance!

Having $$ put away in savings would be huge as would furthering your education, but if having your dream wedding is a bigger deal to you then I would go with that.
Not an easy choice but I hope you get what you want and it makes you happy!
