Organizing a big wedding can be stressful. Too many things to think about, too many people to please on your special day. It’s ok if you feel like this is not for you. Have you heard of elopement weddings? Read this post to know more about this alternative that could be the option you are looking for.
What is an elopement wedding?
An elopement wedding is an intimate, minimalistic wedding, usually carried out in a special place, where the only stars are the two in love. The term started being used in the 17th century to refer to couples that had to escape from their families in order to get married. Something like Romeo and Juliet. Isn’t it romantic?
Here we give you four reasons to choose an elopement wedding in the 21st century:
1. You want less stress
Organizing a wedding for you and your partner is much different than organizing it for 200 people. An elopement wedding will leave you time to relax and just focus on the fun part: your dress, the special place you want to commit to your love forever, and most importantly, this very unique moment you are about to live.
2. You want to live an adventure
Getting married is already an adventure, we can all agree on that! But escaping with your partner to some beautiful beach in Central America, just the two of you, and saying your vows while the sun sets in a magnificent place… That is an adventure alright! Plus, you can organize a little honeymoon afterward, and make the adventure last a bit longer, visiting beaches and jungles, seeing breathtaking landscapes, and enjoying nature all around you. That is what I call starting your marriage on the right foot!
3. You want great wedding photos
An elopement wedding usually comes with a glorious natural stage. In Costa Rica, you can choose volcanoes, waterfalls, black sand beaches, epic sunsets, rainforests, houses in Colina with great views of the mountains, and more! A good elopement photographer will make sure to capture the special moments without you even noticing. Years later you will see the pictures and you’ll feel those emotions all over again!
4. You want to save money
Big weddings can be pricey. The approximate average for couples’ 2021 receptions is $22,500, according to The Knot. And that doesn’t include the dress, the ceremony, or the honeymoon! Does it sound like too much? Choose an elopement wedding and spend less money, just on you two.
