    ... And then renew our vows in a few years with a 'proper wedding' (e.g. all friends and family, a meal and party and honeymoon etc)?

    We are engaged and really want to be husband and wife but also want the perfect wedding that we know we can't afford for a very long time so it seems like a good compromise!

    I'm going back to uni for 6 years in 2016 and my fiancé might be doing teacher training so it would be a long wait for a wedding otherwise.

    Sounds like a good idea but only if you really want to get married now. After all it's the actual marriage that counts, not the ceremony/party/honeymoon.

    Yes, I'm not really bothered about the party bit, but it would be lovely to have (we both live far from our families so it would be amazing to see them all and have a big get together etc). We wanted to have a big autumnal party with campfires and blankets and fairy lights rather than a traditional wedding anyway.

    I'm just desperate to become his Mrs :3

    If its what you both want and what is right for both you right now then go for it You still would need two witnesses for it so you can always still have family members at the registrar office or something small along those lines.

    If you really want to get married, as opposed to having a big party, then I'd say go for it. You could always go for a meal afterwards with your small group, just to mark the occasion.
