Do you feel like you missed anything by not having a wedding?

I sure did - feuding relatives, major headaches, turning into a Bridezilla...

in some ways I do, but we saved a lot of money for a downpayment for a house, and that lasts a lot longer

Same here Lenora We did it because everyone wanted our wedding their way and not ours

well we didn't elope but we got married in my mom's living room on a Wed with only about 25 people. I don't think I missed anything by not having a more traditional wedding/reception. Though someday I'd like to renew our vows and have a big reception.

I do and I don't LOL. I'd always wanted a big wedding, but when Daniel and I married I'd already realized that it was not about the wedding but about the marriage. I'd still like to renew our vows some day and have a big wedding, because I want to get all dressed up!

I don't regret it one bit.

We didn't exactly elope. We got married in Las Vegas. We had about 60 people there. But, I do wish my grandmother was there. That's one thing I missed by not having a traditional wedding.
Now that we go to church, I would love for our pastor to renew our vows with us while our family and close friends are present. I think it would be meaningful to us to have a Christian ceremony with a pastor we know and respect.
But I wouldn't change the way we did it. Our wedding cost $315, and we had a great honeymoon and a brand new house to come home to.
