SAVOR THE MOMENT
With the crazy amount of options for weddings these days, people tend to get caught up in the world of decorating, color coordinating and people-pleasing. We forget that our weddings are meant for celebrating the love we share with our partner - not necessarily the tablescapes and what Aunt Suzy is wearing. 🤷♀️For some, that’s exactly what they want and should do it! For others, wedding planning can be overwhelming. Eloping helps you savor the moment without the need to please those around you.
PAY FOR EXPERIENCES NOT THINGS
Let’s face it, weddings are expensive. 💰 According to The Knot, the average cost of a wedding in 2019 was $33,900. And although there is no average cost of an elopement, most couples spend around $7,000-$15,000 to elope, depending on where you are going & which vendors you are wanting to include. So, if you’re a travel bug and don’t really care about all the little details that go into planning your wedding day -then pack that bag and go elope at a destination that you and your fiancé will never forget.
Use this elopement calculator by Swell & Stone to estimate how much your elopement would cost.
The best part about adventure eloping is that you don’t have to follow a list of venues - you can literally choose to say “I Do” anywhere your heart desires! ✈️Want to get married on the edge of a cliff in Sedona? Do it. Are you and fiancé dying to see Iceland? Go elope there. Want to say “I Do” in the middle of a forest? Well then, you better hike up your dress and go marry that fiancé of yours! Not only will your photos be epic, but you’re escaping the norm and doing what’s you.
Typically, when you hear the word “eloping” people assume you’re going to the courthouse. Today, eloping is so much more than that. Don’t skimp on your big day just because you’re eloping. You can still go all out with an elaborate dress, florals, backdrop, and even cake! 🍰Adventure eloping is meant for escaping the traditional wedding and making it your own! The options are endless!
