I know a lot of couples struggle with whether to elope or have a big wedding. It’s hard to separate your relationship from all of the people in your life who support it. If you’re not sure whether you should have that big, crazy celebration or just do something small, then keep reading!
A lot of couples immediately say “no” to an elopement because they think it means running off together and getting married in secret. While you can definitely do that, there are other options if you want to elope.
You can run away in secret, or bring 20 of your closest friends and family to a lakeside escape for the weekend. I like to think of an elopement as a smaller, intentional celebration – whether it’s 2 people or 25 guests.
It’s typically at a venue, hall, or outdoor ceremony location. It can have decor and linen rentals, catering, a mobile beverage service, DJ, event planner – basically, a giant party.
If having a larger guest list and a bigger party sounds more like you, then go for it!
There’s no right or wrong way when it comes to your wedding day. If you take a step back and think about what’s really important to you as a couple, then you’ll have an easier time deciding which option is for you.
