Eloping Instead

Looks like the military is posting us again.... 3 days after our wedding! So now onto plan B, which was plan A to begin with so I guess that makes this plan C? What a crazy time trying to get married we've had *LOL.
Back story:
In October 2007 my fiance and I decided to elope to Hawaii, 5 star all the way and just have a good time with it. We were doing the dress, the photos just no friends or family. That was fine until the military decided to post us to another base, with us moving the same day we were to be on the beach getting married. We decided to take the posting, buy a house and save for another year and do a full on wedding.
This brings us to now, with a full wedding on the go for the books August 31 of this year and the military is moving us again *LOL. This time it's for 3 days after the wedding *chuckle*. Problem being, and I can't say it's all bad, is they are moving us about 20 minutes away from my hometown. The issue is now I can't see my family and extended family investing time and money to come see me when I'll be moving back to my hometown a few days after the wedding.
So now we're eloping again, cancelling the big show and buy another house. This is a lot of fun and just a little bit crazy!

We're thinking of still doing it in August, but we're not sure what dates we'll go with yet. We've looked at the Marriott in Niagara Falls and found a room we both adore, so we'll actually bend our dates a bit to make sure we get it. But gosh dang it, we're still getting our pictures done in full wardrobe *smiles*. This is my second wedding dress, my first one for Hawaii is still in my closet *L, so I'm making sure I get to wear it!
