I may not be completely familiar with the colloquial term "elope," but I get the impression that we're kind of past that stage now. As I understand it, elopement (in the days when people cared about this kind of thing) meant to run away and get married without your parents knowledge. I think what Ted is hoping for now is just a cheap wedding. And who can blame him - that guy is broke.
I remember after our six-month engagement, I told Mrs. Wanders, "I now know the significance of the expression 'I'd marry you all over again.' Because I'm never going through this again." I'm a big fan of marriage; it's just weddings I could do without.
Of course, then I went onto Facebook and looked at my friend Taylor's wedding photos, I really wished I could have been there! Congrats Taylor and Todd.
