So, my darling proposed right after he told me he wanted to be a Catholic :extrahappy::extrahappy::extrahappy:. Here’s my question: I cannot abide the idea of having a huge vanity pageant wedding. We don’t want it, we can’t afford to pay cash for it, and we aren’t willing to go into debt for it. Is it possible to have a “Catholic elopement”? That is, can we just have a small ceremony with our parents, siblings, and children, as opposed to the whole deal with the processional and the giant dress? We’ll still do all the marriage prep, but we don’t want to do the $20k shindig. We don’t really even want to do a $1k shindig. We just want to get married. Thoughts?
