I'm sure many of us are in this same situation, but does anyone have any experience or thoughts on this? Our wedding date is October 17th, 2020, which I know is still quite far away. Even with a relatively small guest list (~65), I'm still concerned about the likelihood of being able to keep everything as planned. I've seen a lot of people opting for having an intimate ceremony/elopement with plans to hold a proper ceremony/reception around a year later. Do you think this would "take away" from the big day (i.e. the year later celebration), or would it be like getting to have TWO special days?
Any input is appreciated!
To clarify, by "eloping" I don't mean travelling internationally! Just something where it is just us, the officiant, and the required witnesses. Maybe one of those Niagara Falls drive through weddings.. anyone know more about that?
