Hi all! In a bit of a unique situation here...not formally engaged or have a date yet but we do have a ring. DBF has always stated that he didn't want a wedding (which I assumed to mean he wanted to go the courthouse and get hitched and leave it at that...you know what they say about assuming) but really he was all for eloping! I always pictured in my mind a small wedding, but am willing to consider an elopement with family only as long my parents are okay with it once I get a chance to discuss with them after we get engaged. I am fairly sure my parents will not disown me for not wanting to have a wedding, as long as they are included (which DBF is okay with) and his parents don't care about a wedding as they also eloped.
So, what that means is I am here doing some research (as I hope that he will formally pop the question before the end of the year!) as to where we would like to go. Only things I have been able to narrow down so far is either somewhere in the Caribbean, so Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Lucia, or St. John and an all-inclusive couples resort where there will be a gazebo structure available for the wedding (I am mildly in love with gazebos). DBF refuses to go to Mexico (even though we'd be at an AI) and we'd also like it to be a place where we could actually get married so it won't be a huge issue to transfer it once we're back in the states. I've browsed a bit through Trip Advisor and some other travel websites but can't seem to narrow it down further! Can a girl get some help narrowing her options down?
Thanks and look forward to talking with y'all!
