I should have never said 'great idea' when told 'we are only half way to Vegas you know'.
Should have never brought witnesses from the Circus Circus bar. Should have worn more than shorts and a tank top.
But, it worked for the moment, then the moment was gone...and hindsight is 20/20.
However, considering how it all ended up....its better than if we had gone the all out route. I do have to say though, upon coming home, and realizing the family and friends are all left out and unbelieving like, a more formal plan was put in place anyway.
It costs less than 50.00 to get married in Vegas, or any other city courthouse. Theres the marriage license fee and the JOP fee, thats it.
It can cost any amount for any formal wedding, and Ive been to some that cost more than a college education, a small home, etc.
In the end, many types of weddings are a great and wonderful time to gather together family and friends, or just family, or just the couple and the most important thing is that you do what is going to make you happy, each of you.
I say since you've been with THE BOY for this long..its not been rushed, and niether should the two of you be rushed from this point on in the decisions you make.
You both also have to start communicting on not only what you both want, would like, or feel the need to do but, to discuss what you are willing to comprimise, and what you arent.
While many decisions may be influenced by your family, or his family, in the end Im sure both of you will stand your ground on what it is you decide.
Also, about those who are all asking did you set a date yet? Its all about the ring Sugar, its something you ask, its a way of contributing your thoughts and feelings for a couple at the time when they decide to take the step you have. It will die down once you explain to everyone who wants to know that you are unsure at this point as to your plans. Its common courtesy, annoying as it is, you'll get through this. Christmas Im sure will add to that, be prepared.
No matter what gal, those who care about the two of you are simply happy you have found each other, and however it goes from here, thats a great thing. Congrats.
Im still gonna tell you to print up post cards and mail them when you get on the plane
