To break it down, it is as simple and as complicated as this:
An elopement is whatever you want it to be.
It is no longer a secret, people now say with pride that they are planning an elopement, they tell friends and family and everyone gets so excited to see what wonderful adventure the couple decides on. Elopements open up a world of possibilities that a traditional wedding restricts.
For example, how amazing would it be to get married on top of a snow-covered mountain in New Zealand? The dream! Now picture flying 100 guests up there and everyone crowding the mountain top….suddenly not as amazing!
An elopement puts the focus purely on the couple, it is truly about the marriage and cuts out all the other bits. It’s your day and it can be whatever you want it to be.
