Has anybody on here ditched a traditional wedding and got married by a judge, justice of the peace, or other type of officiant?
I'm considering having a judge/justice of the peace marry us and save my money for a big honeymoon. Me and my fiance have discussed it, and she is totally on board with it. She is divorced and said her first wedding (which was a big wedding) was the longest, most stressful day of her life and doesn't want to go through it again. I could care less about a damn wedding. I'm good with doing a courthouse wedding and saving our money to go on a big honeymoon and having a big party thereafter.
What are your thoughts on civil marriage?
My brother is an Air Force officer so he got married by a judge so he could get his fiance benefits and a little extra pay. But they also had a traditional ceremony which was beautiful and IMO totally worth it. Due to the nature of his job they haven't had a honeymoon yet but they are working on that.
