so we did it- decided to elope on our vacation.
kinda stressful finding a dress, offciant, and photog in 2 days lol but it all worked out. went to davids bridal w/ my dd and her friend. there were like 5 dresses in my size a whopping size 16 lol but found one I liked and it was only a $130!!! Waiting on pics from photog and then will share:)
