My fiance and I were going to elope but I am having a hard time accepting the fact that my parents wouldnt be there. I now want to invite immediate family only but I dont know if my parents can afford it? Is it ok to offer to pay for either their airfare of their resort stay? I'm not sure my fiance will agree to this but it is really important to me that they be there. The other option is to have a small ceremony and dinner at home then go on a kick butt honeymoon after. I'm liking the DW idea better though. Thoughts? Other suggestions?
