Just that really. I feel like I'm about to burst with excitement.

Oohh, good luck! Are you going for a nice honeymoon/holiday afterwards?

Why are you eloping? Not criticising just curious wink

We're doing the same in a fortnight!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Gibraltar - then Andalucia for the holidaymoon smile

We decided on this as we have complicated families and have spent 6 years being engaged trying to work out how to appease everyone else...finally thought sod it let's elope! :D

fizzy congrats - it's so exciting! Where are you going? Have you told anyone? What are you wearing?

fizzydizzy Thu 08-Sep-16 13:32:11

Only one friend knows but as time goes on its getting harder not to talk about it! Other than that just my hairdresser to get some tips on what to ask for!

That sounds lovely, we're going to Italy and we'll have a honeymoon next year.

Decided on it for similar reasons. We've been together a long time, neither of us wanted a big wedding but wanted to be married.

I've got a dress but not traditional bridal, what about you?

Good for you! flowerswine

Yes same, didn't want a big complicated wedding but did want to be married smile

I have a white dress but it's not "bridal" either. Tbh it's a white sundress but very "me" I think. I keep wobbling about what I'm wearing though...talked myself down from getting a "back-up dress" earlier this week...and only thought about hair and makeup last night! Totally unprepared really!

fizzydizzy Thu 08-Sep-16 14:11:02

I was having a bit of a panic about my dress last night but guess that's normal!
I've got someone to do hair and make up but a little nervous about how it will go.

Compared to the stress I've seen friends have in the run up to their weddings I know this is nothing though!

Are you going to let people know while you are away or wait until you are home?

dragonsarebest Thu 08-Sep-16 14:20:34

Yes i think you're right - and yes, definitely less stressful than it could have been!

Not sure about letting people know. My preference is to breezily drop in "...oh and we got married" when asked how the holiday was. Not sure a spur-of-the-moment story will cut it though, seeing as there'll be pics of him looking smart and me in white! DP has arranged it all - sorted witnesses, a photographer, the legal stuff, etc - didn't cross his mind to think about my hair and makeup though lol! I really want to talk about it and have someone reassure me about my outfit etc - I guess that's all part of the big wedding day process right?

Yes the lack of feedback on different bits is tricky! PM if you want any last minute chat/opinions!
