Reasons to Elope Instead

A big wedding isn't for everyone. THAT’S OKAY. Maybe you've decided you want to have a smaller wedding. Maybe you were in the middle of planning a large wedding with all the bells and whistles - but maybe something else kept tugging at your heart. We get it! Whether you’ve decided you’d like just the two of you or if you know you can’t get married without a few friends and family as witnesses, there is something so special about keeping your wedding day intimate.

How do you know when the best idea truly is to elope?

Take a look at some of the reasons our couples tell us they were drawn to eloping:

  • They were easily overwhelmed;

  • They don’t like to be the center of attention;

  • They wanted to invest in different priorities [like a new home or a big trip!]

  • They wanted their ceremony to feel more sacred;

  • They wanted a destination wedding anyway;

  • They wanted to keep it simple;

  • They like to explore and find beautiful places;

  • They’ve already had the big wedding and want something quiet now;

  • Simply put, they just had no interest in planning such a large event.

Are you nodding your head over one or more of these reasons? Maybe eloping is the right thing for you!
