Should I Elope or Nah?

Is eloping for you? So many times in the wedding process, brides and grooms decide they want to elope because of the thousand’s of dollars they will spend in one day. But how important is that ONE day to the both of you? Before you decide to elope, you should carefully consider the pros and cons.

Reasons to Elope
Many couples who elope say that they want to save money. The cost of eloping is less than having a tradition wedding. And they don’t want to deal with the month to month planning. They may also be avoiding family arguments, especially if one partner’s parents disapprove of their choice of spouse, or if a divorced set of parents can’t stand to be in the same room together.

Reasons not to Elope
You’ll be missing out on celebrating with close friends and family and some may be very upset that you didn’t include them. You’ll also be missing out on the chance to fulfill your wedding dreams vision. You might miss the opportunity to reconnect with friends and loved ones who live far away, but would love to come for a wedding. And of course there are the pictures and memories you’ll miss instead of looking back on pictures of yourself in a beautiful setting surrounded by loved ones.
