If you’ve ever wondered why someone would elope, how to elope, or why I love planning elopements…this is for YOU!
To start this off I want to tell you a little about how I got married…
We did the stereotypical courthouse elopement on a Friday riiiiiiight before the courthouse closed for the day. I pulled a random white dress out of my closet, threw my hair up in the most basic “updo” I could manage, and we did the thing! Was it everything I ever hoped for? Nope, but I don’t regret it because it opened my eyes to the fact that not everything is exactly the way society says it has to be!
You can plan you elopement (and I think you should), you can have your dream dress, your florals can be out of this world, and you can pick to do it wherever your heart desires!
Before we got married we thought there were only two ways to get married, in a venue with ALL THE THINGS, or at the courthouse with basically nothing.
If we knew then what we know now we absolutely would have gotten married on a mountain top somewhere! In fact once we learned about planned elopements we celebrated five years of marriage on a mountain top with a cliff side view to renew our vows…and it WAS everything I had ever dreamt of whether I knew it or not when we got married.
So why elope?
There are so many reasons that couples decide eloping is the right fit for them! Whether you just adore nature, just don’t feel like a big wedding is your thing, or you want to work with your budget while still having a dream day…here are a view reasons why eloping might be right for you!
I could give you endless reasons to elope but I’ll leave it there with some of the most popular reasons I’ve heard while being in this industry. I adore helping my clients plan their dream elopement day, and my biggest advice for planning an elopement would be to find someone who knows how to plan them to help you if you don’t where to start. I do this for all of my couples and love coming up with creative ideas for them!
Here are 3 tips on starting to plan an elopement to help though!
I hope this helped you guys and if you have any questions let me know! I would love to be able to help make wedding planning exciting for you!
