Where to elope??? With or without family???

Jump to last reply

I have a serious dilemma on my hands. I am on a budget, and trying decide where to begin in this process is very daunting to me. I have a few additional "unique" things to consider while planning. We have beautiful twin boys that are almost 5 and i can't even imagine them not being a part of our special day. I want something simple on the beach perhaps (my dream actually). Ive thought of Outer Banks N.C.. Rent a beach house and have it right there. Then i feel so limited to dates b/c my sister is a teacher and off season, which is so much cheaper, is during her school year. We also need to think about having a family party when we get home for extended family.

My FI wants just the two of us to go away and elope in the Caribbean. St Martin/marteen, Turks and Caicos, or maybe Costa Rica. We have been engaged for 5 years! I feel like this will never happen. How can I be sure that I will have the simple wedding that we want, but still memorable and most importantly, not regretting my boys not being there? What do we do? I appreciate any help you can give.
