Customs and Traditions
Getting eloped now then having a ceremony and reception later on.
First off I never thought I would even be consider doing this but here goes... We are planning a wedding for June 2012. I have always dreamed of a large summer traditional wedding with friends and family. However, if we are not married before April 17, 2012 I will have to drop out of college. The only way I can stay in college is if we are legally married before April 17th. Would it be tacky to get legally married then next summer (like we had orginally planned) have a ceremony and reception so the family could partake in our marriage. I want to have the wedding of my dreams and I dont feel I should be cheated out of it just because of college.
