It's really sad and it hurts, but most often no one wants to attend a wedding; other than 1st weddings, as had by young couples. That and family members are often older and less willing to travel, children might be involved in school or might be abroad, with scheduling conflicts and such. Oh and sometimes even "best friends" commitments to a couple are wavering. So, what's the point of having a big wedding at all anyway, if it's just the couple that's going to be there?
That's percisely the perdicament we're in, as many of our friends are no more, because they couldn't or wouldn't accept us BOTH, as a couple. So, we say, so be it - and that's why were considering an intimate and very private wedding for two. Yes, it's been decided, we're eloping to the mountians like a couple of carefree kids in our 30s and 40s - and although we'll have a very nice and romantic wedding, I'm sure, we're going to miss sharing our joy with others; but, we're going to make it all about us and probably save a lot of money in the long run, So, no one else need know the details. They can just see the pictures and video, when we get home from our week long honeymoon in the mountains. Afterall, our wedding is about us and not them! So, on 'em! Now, who's doing the same? Any other abandoned couples out there?
