Ask Ashley: Your Ceremony

  1. Bryan and I are eloping in Ireland.our parents know, so it's not a secret but they obviously won't be there. What are some ways we can honor our parents or make them feel special… Even though they aren't there? Or something we could do after to make them feel loved? We have a videographer and all of our family will get a video but I want to do something more sentimental.

    Also: Bryan has sister's who like to be very involved and controlling. They are the reason we are eloping in Ireland. They don't know yet and we are very nervous about telling them. His parents know not to say a word to his sisters. So…. At what point do we tell them? A month before, right before, or after?

    Thank you!
