Of course everyone or at least most people assume they going to be married some day. Some might want an unusual wedding which is what the Thing to Do is supposed to be.
18 years today was my wedding. I should not say it was a wedding as we eloped.
No one really knew we were dating in my family except for my grandmother. My mother and father had threatened to have my fiance (at the time) arrested several months before.
When my grandmother distracted my mother by taking her to Georgia for a week, Partner and I got our marriage license and were married in the Ft Lauderdale Courthouse with my best friend and his best friend as witnesses. The whole thing took 5 minutes. We then hid our marriage for 3 years which I suppose is definitely unusual.
If I had it to do over again, I would have had a Jewish-style wedding even though neither of us were Jewish. Or a medieval wedding. Or some type of theme. We at least won for cheapest wedding ever… 88.50 for the marriage license and 20 for the notary to sign the form. Then we went to Disney World for a weekend where in the middle of the night the fire alarm went off, hell of a way to spend a wedding night.
If you could have a theme for your wedding what would it be?
