Is Eloping Right for You?  Here are the Top 10 Things to Consider

The Budget Savvy Bride

While some people cannot imagine a wedding day that’s not a big party with all of their closest friends and family members, others would love to experience something that’s decidedly more intimate.

If a smaller fete sounds like an ideal event to you, you might want to place eloping on your radar.

What is an elopement?

There was once a time when eloping meant you and your partner would sneak away, get married, and return to your home city with very exciting news. Eloping felt secretive and exciting because it was!

But now eloping is simply a way to ease your stress levels (in theory) and only celebrate with your partner, your immediate families, and maybe a few close friends.

Why would we want to elope?

Some people want to avoid the traditional stressors associated with planning a big wedding (venues, vendors, large guest lists), while other people don’t love lots of attention at their cores and would prefer to experience such a huge, life-altering event with fewer eyes on them.

Is eloping less expensive?

It can be! Venues, catering, and guest lists are the top three things that can drive up the price of a wedding.
