Is Anyone Else Not Having Guests?

Recommended Posts

Please tell me I'm not crazy, but I don't want anyone at the ceremony except for myself and FI. We'll come home and have an AHR next Summer, but I really want the wedding to be all about us. 

 

Is anyone else doing this? I guess it's like an announced elopement?

whilst im not doing it personally, i can say theres no right or wrong answer when it comes to weddings! you want a private wedding then its completely your choice =)

 

i think private weddings can be very romantic, and you dont need to worry about your guests still being around when you want to start your honeymoon hahaha (lord knows how ill manage to make sure 100 guests leave us for alone time...i think we will have to change hotels!) there are definite advantages to doing it your way (less expense, private time etc) so don't feel like youre crazy. its probably crazier to end up with a whole bunch of guests you dont want there! take me, my dream wedding would be around 50 people, fiances idea of a wedding is way way bigger so we compromised on a "small" wedding of 100 people. 100!! so for me, i can totally imagine doing what youre doing were it not for the fact it would lead to a nightmarish amount of drama from my family and future inlaws!

 

good luck!

Definitely your choice ;) I have a friend that had her wedding in Hawaii with just her and her fiance and she still says that she wouldn't have it any other way.. That was 10 years ago!

I agree with Yunric - I wish I had done it like that.  At first we were going to but then we decided to just have a few guests.  Looking back I wish it was just my husband and I.  I think its absolutely okay to have an announced elopment.  Do what feels right for you!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
