My fiance and I decided last night that we would go to the courthouse to get married. A few months ago I brought this up to my father, and he was not too thrilled about the idea. We decided to do this because we simply can't afford to host everyone properly right now. All the people we want there are our parents and siblings, and in 5 or 10 years have a big anniversary party where we could host the way we would like.
So now, we have to figure out a date to do this. Also, after the courthouse I want to reserve a private room in a restaurant to eat and celebrate. I'm actually more excited about this plan than the ceremony and reception we were planning. So much less stress, and intimate just like I wanted
