December 21, 2012… unique elopement ideas?

Just to give you some background, my man proposed to me on my 30th birthday in Mexico this past January 2012. Shortly afterwards we saw a sign describing the 2012 Mayan Prophecy:

The Mayan culture predicted a change in consciousness in the world around December 21, 2012. They predicted a deep change in the universe through the alignment of planets. This will result in a shift of focus from materialism and selfishness into love, kindness and internal peace.

That’s where we came up with the date and it’s really special for us. It’s an awesome theme we want to roll with. Obvisouly, we don’t believe the world is going to end. Well, we found out I was pregnant in May and due in early January 2013. Planning a wedding was not coming easily and we eventually decided to postpone the wedding until after the baby.

Ok, so just recently we tossed around the idea to make it legal on December 21, 2012 anyway, and organize a celebration for the family and friends sometime after the baby is born. Eloping away from home isn’t in the cards because I will be VERY pregnant. It is at this point that we are at a loss. We want to secure the date legally. I want to wear my rings and I want to do the whole hoo-rah properly next year.

I’m so torn, because I want it to be special in a simple way, but no lacklustre. I don’t know how to make this happen. On top of it all, we need to have witnesses (2). This makes it hard, because who we choose might irritate others. Some commissioners have recommended saying our vows in our living room in front of the Christmas tree and then going out for dinner. I’m not sure I’m happy with that. I also don’t know WTF I’m going to wear at 37 weeks pregnant. I feel like I should get a simple, white, maternity wedding dress for the occasion, but I also don’t want to spend money there when I have a newborn to prepare for.

Does anyone have any special or unique ideas????

  1. Too young to feed you with these kind of ideas, but I’m in love with the idea of having your marriage/legal wedding on the 21st of December 2012 and I just thought I’d point that out 🙂

      Congrats! My man has now decided he wants to postpone (again) because he thinks if we don’t do it right the first time, we won’t do it at all. Ugh…
      I think I’m ok with it because I didn’t even want a wedding in the first place and now that I’m 8 months pregnant I think I’m ok with waiting.
      Congrats on 5 years!!! Woot 🙂
