I am not sure this couple would see it as a surrender. Yes, they were forced to look for non-traditional alternatives. However, I think they ended up with something they would repeat again if given the chance. Their original destination wedding plan was also a compromise as it would only have supported about 20 people. Then again, maybe they had their hearts set on wooden chicken, soggy macaroni, and mushy peas (but you can probably get that as take-out).
