Why Couples are Choosing to Elope
Have you heard? Eloping is in! That's right, couples from all different backgrounds are choosing elopements over traditional weddings. Why has eloping become so popular?
Couples are waiting longer to get married. For first time marriages the average age is 27, rather than 23 just a decade ago. Couples might be well into their careers and homes before the wedding takes place. This means the bride and groom may determine that spending tens of thousands of dollars for one big celebration is no longer as important as growing your business or getting out of debt.
Stress...we all need more of it, right? Just kidding! Modern conveniences in the world today have actually made it harder to unplug and get away from it all. Elopements provide an all-inclusive, one-stop shopping, low-stress wedding experience. With a true elopement- there's no seating charts, bridesmaids or family disputes to worry about. Or, you can opt for the popular "intimate wedding" and invite only a few important guests that have the honor and privilege of being invited to your special day. Either way, the bride and groom will be able to enjoy their day without the stress of major planning or a costly traditional wedding.
It's wildly romantic! Elopements can be the beginning of a lifetime of spontaneity with your spouse. Image not caring about anyone else when you look into the eyes of the person you're about to wed. After all, it's about the two of you and your love for each other. For more information visit:
