Don't Want a Traditional Wedding

Group Therapy: I Want to Get Married, but Don't Want a Wedding

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I want to get married, but I don't really want a wedding. This article made me wonder whether there was any point of a traditional engagement in this case? My boyfriend suggests looking for a ring whenever we pass a jewelery store, but I've always felt kind of silly about it . . . Is that really necessary? So I have a ring, and I'm officially engaged and then what? Sign the papers? Plan an elopement? I guess I'm just looking for thoughts and ideas from those who have taken a wedding-less or less traditional route.
