Do or don't: Eloping and having a virtual wedding

Chicago couple Scott and Erin are getting married on a dairy farm in Vermont this week. It will be just the two of them, the officiant and the photographer. NO ONE else was invited.

But here's the weird part...

In a very modern-day style, they're going to blog about and twitter their wedding (their Vermont B&B has wi-fi!), so everyone can still feel like they're a part of the festivities. It's as if their families are attending the wedding--without spending a dime.

"Having a small wedding like this was never about excluding our friends and family," Erin says. "It was about creating a moment that reflected our feelings about marriage....it's about two people and the commitment they make to each other." See their blog here.

What do you think? Would you consider eloping? Would you be happy (or salty) to be "invited" to a virtual wedding, like this? Have any of your friends eloped? Would your mom flip?
