Do Tell: Would You Elope?

It's no secret that Heidi and Spencer eloped in Mexico, but after watching how it all came to fruition last night on The Hills, I couldn't help but feel badly for Heidi — was it just me or did she look incredibly sad the morning after her big day? Her family was clearly part of the reason why Spencer whisked her away, but it seemed as though she was disappointed that her family wasn't there to support her, let alone offer their blessing. While marriage is a personal commitment between husband and wife, do tell, would you ever elope on a whim like Heidi and Spencer did?

Until you've started the process of actually planning your wedding... you won't understand how absolutely horrendous it can be! My fiance proposed in December, and it's March and by this time, I'm ready to go to the courhouse and just get it over with! Luckily, we haven't booked anything, so we may just do that!

I could never elope...I want everyone to share the excitement and happiness with me and my significant other!

I eloped. My husband's brother had just had the huge wedding the year before and my brother was going through a nasty divorce, so both sides were relieved that we weren't going to insist on a big production. We've been married 18 years and have never regretted it. My parents are kindof cheap and my husband's parents go overboard, so they would probably still hate each other to this day if we had tried to have a wedding.

Hell yeah maybe during vacation or City Hall - I hate the idea of a weding and ceremony and well I really have no family but I find the whole situation embarassing and stressful. I would definately elope if I felt like getting married but I've been with my boyfriend for almost 5 years and no marriage seems to be workingn besides I dont want his last name or kids really I would just want to reap the benefits!

I always thought I wanted a big wedding and now that I had one, I realize that a small destination wedding would've been perfect. But if I hadn't had that big wedding I probably would've always wondered. I feel badly for heidi though.

Totally! It's not about your family, it's about you! I love how people say "it's so selfish". Isnt your wedding supposed to be for your SELF?

I would because my mom tried to get into a fist fight at my sister's and my college graduation. I'm so scared that she'd do something like that that I would prefer her to not be there. The only way I can think to do that without making her disown me again is to elope. I would love to have my family and friends there, but it would be such a hassle worrying about her that I wouldn't be able to enjoy the special day. And since my boyfriend will probably propose in the next couple months, I'm REALLY worried about this because he wants a "real" wedding. And yes, I know with a mother like that I shouldn't care about her disowning me, but she's my mom and I hurts so much to know that she doesn't want me in her life that I do everything I can to keep her "happy" with me.

I had a big traditional wedding and I loved it, I wouldn't trade it for the world. However, about two weeks before the wedding, I tried to talk my future husband into eloping! ha ha ha It's easier, but I loved having my friends and family there for me!

We had a big, traditional wedding, but I would have been happy to elope as well.

I can't stand the idea of a big Italian wedding with everyone and their uncle (literally!)in attendance. But I wouldn't want to do it without my immediate family and my closest friends... so, I'd compromise.

I would only elope if we got to bring our parents as well as each bringing our best friend. So I would but not with only my guy I need a very small group with me. That way I can avoid the mom drama Heidi got after her elopement.

I'm three months from my wedding and would KILL someone to be able to elope. Oh, well... at least our families will be happy.

I don't think so. I'd rather just go to the courthouse and have a small service with our parents.

I have like 6 powerpoints full of my wedding plans... yes at 19 I am a lil obsessed, yet even though I have all these dreams of a platinum wedding it would be so ironic if I eloped! But I would have to have a reception with my family and friends. I could not exlude my parents and brother from that.

I don't plan on eloping. It doesn't sound romantic to me. I love the idea of wedding with my friends and family there. Buuuut, I oculd see myself eloping if all the stress of planning got to me. I'd definitely plan a small celebration with my family afterwards though. I would feel really guilty though for leaving them out of my important day.

Thought about it many times. Wouldn't mind it. Frankly that whole marriage ceremony seems like a party for everyone else sometimes...that's why I ain't goin for an expensive or huge one. Everyone can go to McDonalds and get their own damn food. :-P J/ but seriously...

We wanted to do this but sadly we didn't have a lot of money being that we are both college students and our parents both have close to zilch. So we had a small wedding with just family. I guess we are a little different than most couples. I've never had fantasies of my wedding day or even really thought about it before hand. Also my family would have understood whatever we decided to do, as they said it was about us and not about them. My mother-in-law would have been upset a bit. She would have gotten over it though lol. But even still, if we had had the money at the time to get away we would have eloped.
