My fiance and I had planned to get married in October 2018 and booked the venue. We are a lesbian couple and certain members of her family have given us so much grief we cancelled the venue and planning to elope when we had our heart set on something a lot more traditional. Advice?

it's such a shame that you had to cancel! weddings can bring out the worst in people. i cannot really give much advice on traditional venues, but if you're still looking in to eloping, look at boho cornwall and the green cornwall; they're nicer alternatives to gretna green(!). my partner and i were thinking about eloping, so we've been looking in to it. i do hope you have the wedding of your dreams, you deserve it after all this hassle!

I'm so sorry your having to go through this. Do you know where you plan to elope? Not traditional but I love Greece so think if I was going to elope I'd go to santorini or something x
