I would love some all around input regarding whether we have a church wedding and reception or go elope somewhere (and invite whoever would like to attend) and come back and do a big reception. I'm torn because both are enticing. If we elope it won't be like a destination wedding, just a Vegas type setting. I should add that I haven't grown up dreaming of the day I walk down the isle, so I think I'd be okay with either, but I'm just not sure. April 2012 is when we've set the date for the church wedding but haven't done much more yet. What are your thoughts, pros and cons?!
Thanks for your time and advice in advance :-)
*I did post this on my wedding month board and my state board to make sure I get some ideas, as well!
