Weddings don't have to be expensive! You can just go to your county's recorder's office (or equivalent), get a license, and get married there, too (maybe on a different day). My husband and I did it that way and it was somewhere between $100 and $200 (I don't remember exactly). Another thing about being married is that it gives you some legal advantages. Anyway, that's what worked for us.
with time and money constraints, and very far away relatives (his family),we'd rather invest these limited resources into starting a family rather than into a wedding. i know that if it's not an issue to me or my family, it really shouldnt matter, but i just want to see what others think.
I know this is off the original topic, but I totally agree! Being legally married does have many advantages, particularly if you have children together. Thought I'd offer another option to getting married inexpensively - ELOPE! It's romantic and costs only as much as a vacation.
