We didn't have a wedding. We had considered having a small wedding at MIL's house, but we lived 200 miles from Dallas, and we were very, very poor. We had to wait an extra two months to get married just to afford the $65 marriage license! We talked about waiting until we could afford a small wedding, but neither of us wanted to wait.

No one even knew we were getting married until after it was done; our moms knew we had gotten the license, so they knew it would be within 30 days, but we didn't tell anyone else. It was just me, DH, and the judge. In some ways, it would've been nice to have a wedding, but we both have crazy families, so I think it would've been more stress and trouble than it was worth.
