4 Reasons You Should Elope
You Do You
There are so many reasons under the sun to consider eloping, but this is one of the main reasons to toss up. When you are planning a traditional wedding you inevitably have to consider other people. If you elope the only opinions to take into consideration are yours! It’ll take away the stress of thinking about what will make your guests comfortable, what will entertain them, etc. If the idea of putting together all these details and trying to make sure this aunt doesn’t sit by that cousin then you might want to consider eloping!
Who Do We Invite?!
For a lot of people going through a list of family members and life long friends and trying to figure out who gets an invite can cause a LOT of unwanted stress. When I got married I know my husband and parents felt bad for not being able to invite certain people, but to be honest, if people are upset they don’t get invited because of a budget then do you really need them there… but that’s a whole other topic! It might be a bit dramatic, but if you could say “I do” without dealing with this stress just toss the hat in and go have an elopement!

Put Your Money Where You Want
..Or in your pocket! Most wedding decisions really do boil down to your budget. Eloping really isn’t much different, but you can really focus on your priorities and what you value! You can put your money towards that dream dress or that awesome photographer you want to hire to capture your amazing day together whether it be local or at a gorgeous waterfall in Iceland!
I always tell my couples to consider eloping where you would love to have your honeymoon! If you travel to a rad location like the Amalfi Coast, Ireland, or even to the mountains in Colorado you can kill two birds with one stone and have your honeymoon right then and there! It will save you another round of plane tickets and hotels, too!
