Question by BUBBLES: My friend is going to elope then have a big church wedding and reception?
Has anyone every done this or seen this done? She want’s the date 7/7/07 so she decide that they are going to Vegas to elope because they can’t come up with the cash fast enough to do a real wedding. But then in 6-8 months they are going to have a traditional church wedding with bridemaids/groomsman and do the whole reception? And she wants the big bridal shower and Bachelorette party??
Does this work? I told her my own thoughts were, why spend all the money on a wedding if your already married….. and doesn’t it take some specialness out of your wedding day?? They are not getting married for any other reason the the date for 7/7/07……..
Am I the only one who thinks this is strange??
her reasoning was that she wants the date 7/7/07 and then the church wedding because she also wants to be married under god.
She thinks this is no big deal but I am sorry to say I think it’s tacky!
the 7/7/07 will be the real marriage- when they will be legally married. The church wedding will be the fake wedding.

Yea, it’s strange. Maybe she just wants the gifts?
