I'm not sure if this would be considered "offbeat", but in a day and age where people are spending $20,000 on their wedding, courthouse weddings are getting more and more "out there."
My fiance and I just got engaged and we're young (19 and 20), but not naive. Neither of us are interested in a big "traditional" wedding and we want to spend as little money as possible, so the idea of a courthouse wedding is getting more and more appealing.
We won't be getting married for at least another year and a half to two years so there's no rush for this information, but I was wondering if anyone here has been to a courthouse ceremony or knows someone who has had one? I'm asking because I know the idea seems icky or unromantic or unappealing to many people, but I'm only interested in actual experiences people have had with this system. What I've been reading in blogs I found on google have ranged from "I wouldn't change a thing." to "Never, EVER do this!"
So, what were your honest reactions?
