Should We Elope?

6 Things to consider when deciding elopement or not

While getting married is one of the biggest moments of your life, wedding planning can be time-consuming and frustrating. Between the expectations of parents and the cost of hiring multiple vendors, some couples just don’t feel that a wedding day is worth all the expense and effort.

In cases like these, eloping can feel like the best choice. If you want your wedding day to feel intimate, an elopement can be the perfect way to celebrate your love and begin your new lives together.

Check out these reasons why you should consider eloping.

You want to eliminate the stress

While a wedding planner isn’t in everyone’s budget, if you can afford to hire a pro, you definitely should. A wedding planner takes much of the stress of planning your big day off of you, from booking and confirming vendors to developing a timeline for your day. If you want to shorten your to-do list by a lot, consider hiring a professional planner to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

You want to go on an adventure

Eloping doesn’t mean you get married at City Hall. Many couples choose to exchange vows somewhere beautiful, like a national park. Doing so means you get an adventure and an incredibly memorable wedding day. Plus, your photos will be stunning!

You want to save money

Weddings are expensive. The average cost of a traditional wedding goes up constantly, with many costing tens of thousands of dollars or more. If having all the trappings of a big wedding isn’t important to you, you can save money by eloping. Then you can use those funds to go on a gorgeous honeymoon or put a down payment on your first home.

You want an intimate day

Having multiple people watching you say “I do” can be distracting. If you want your wedding day to reflect the intimacy of your relationship, an elopement can be a great way to do that. It allows you and your partner to focus on one another and what you’re promising, instead of worrying about your uncle getting drunk at the reception.

You want to avoid family drama

Speaking of relatives, weddings often come with drama. When you get two extended families together, there are bound to be arguments and hurt feelings. Eloping enables you to avoid all of that. And don’t worry, you can still include your parents, siblings and closest friends in your elopement if you wish. But you can avoid all the aunts, uncles and cousins you may feel obligated to invite to a traditional wedding day.

You want to be more environmentally conscious

Weddings, like an event, are full of waste, from food to disposable dishes to paper products. An elopement eliminates a lot of that waste and allows you to reduce your carbon footprint and be a little kinder to the environment.

No matter what you choose to do, it’s important to plan a wedding day that reflects you and your partner and the love you share.
