The decision about whether or not to elope can be a very difficult one. On one hand, you want to do what’s right for you but often the feelings of friends and family can influence your decision. So, should you elope? This infographic from The Wedding Band Shop takes you through what you need to know about eloping before making a final decision.

One issue couples really struggle with is dealing with hurt feelings if they elope. In a perfect world, friends and family should want you to do what’s right for you, but the reality is there will be people who are a little annoyed.

If you do decide to elope, don’t downplay your elopement or spend the whole time worrying about what people will think. It’s still your wedding day so you should celebrate it just as much. A compromise might be to elope and then organize a party with friends and family when you arrive home. Even just a casual meal and a few drinks can be a good way to make it up to people who weren’t there on your elopement.
