Intelligent, independent couples elope for many reasons. Some to create the wedding they want without any compromises, some to put their relationship ahead of a commercialized tradition. Some because the logistics of bring family together is difficult.
Today’s elopements are on the rise and they are happy surprises. Eloping is the wedding day as it was before the advent of the circus wedding affair that included the 200 person guest list, and the $5000 bar bill. A wedding is a day, but a marriage is forever.
While elopements have traditionally been an exclusive affair consisting of only the Bride and Groom, they don’t have to be. Just because you elope does not mean that family members or friends can’t be with you. You can still have your father walk you down the aisle or your best friend witness your ceremony. The best part of eloping is that there are no rules!
Be happy about your decision to put your relationship and future first. Relish that your first steps in wedded bliss can be putting the down payment on a house, or an indulgent trip of a lifetime, not paying off the $28,800 the average wedding costs today. Your decision to elope is no longer outside of the norm, congratulations and welcome to the elopement community.
Is your family feeling a little blue about missing the magical moment of your ceremony? Consider hiring a videographer to record your ceremony. Then you can surprise your family with a special gift or play it during a post elopement party.
