Elopements and micro weddings are on the rise! It is no longer a fad to get eloped. More and more couples are opting for this route versus a traditional wedding. Traditionally weddings have taken place in religious venues. Today, people are wanting more unique and non traditional spaces instead.
Museums, wineries, parks, & gardens are just some of the few popular venues to choose from. Non traditional spaces are becoming so popular because couples want something adventurous and something that does not put them in a box. Non traditional venues have beautiful scenery and great character. The options are endless, and you can always add your own personal touch.
Here are some reasons why we think you should elope:
Did you know that the average wedding in America would cost you over $35,000? If you think you can do a traditional wedding for much less you could end up compromising quality. Eloping would only cost you a fraction of that because we focus on the important things only. Save that money for your honeymoon or a down payment for your new house.
500 married couples did a survey, and 43% of them said wedding planning put a strain on their relationship, YIKES. Everything about planning a traditional wedding screams stressful! There is so much involved from planning to budgeting and trying to find the perfect dress. Added stress is so unnecessary especially during this exciting time in your life. Eloping is stress free! We focus on the most important things. Simplifying everything without sacrificing quality.
It takes approximately 13-18 months to plan a traditional wedding. Everyone doesn't have that much time, or maybe you just don't want to wait that long to get married. There are a lot of things that could get in the way of that timeline like, a demanding career, a new baby, moving and just life in general. When you elope with us, we can make it happen in just 4 weeks! There aren't too many venues that can arrange that for you.
#ALL ABOUT YOU
When you are planning a traditional wedding, you can get lost in trying to impress others. You can find yourself constantly considering other people when really it should just be about you and your spouse. When eloping, we focus on the most important things while you just focus on getting married to the love of your life!
If you have any family feuds or drama between friends, planning a traditional wedding can be Hell. You have to consider where you sit people or if certain people will even show up. You will be left wondering what will happen if so- and so run into each other. What happens when it's time to choose your maid of honor when your sister and best friend hate each other? When you elope, you don't have to worry about your loved ones unresolved issues. A lot of people elope alone. Eloping is very intimate and that's what makes it so special.
#NARROWS GUEST LIST
Eloping forces you to narrow the guest list. This actually has one the biggest impacts on how much you will save eloping. Again, fewer people, less drama.
Eloping is fun! Being in nature around some nice scenery is refreshing! Have you ever seen elopement photos? Seriously, they are the most breath taking! Also, the options are endless and depending on the destination you choose it couple double as a honeymoon.
#NOT MUCH PLANNING
Maybe you don't have a planning bone in your body. Good thing there are wedding planners, but that will cost you $2,000-$10,000 dollars. We have our elopement packages preplanned for you to make the process simple and stress free.
During 6 hours of a traditional wedding 400-600lbs of waste is accumulated. That is based off a guest list of 120 people. Do we need to do some math for you? It's a lot of waste! Eloping is environmental friendly. Elope with us so you can enjoy your happily ever after.
