For some couples, that rush of desire for a big wedding is elusive. The act of publicly declaring their commitment in front of numerous family, friends and acquaintances is just not their jam. Enter the elopement.
There are plenty of reasons to do it, but when you're not caught up with wedding plans, you realize just how romantic doing things on your own can be.
1. It’s simple.
Forget about chasing your relatives for RSVPs, worrying about a seating arrangement that will keep the peace, screaming babies, rehearsals, wrangling your wedding party, tiptoeing around family’s sensitivities. The beauty of eloping is that you and your partner can make decisions based solely on your own preferences. It’s all about you two.
2. It’s affordable.
An elopement can be as minimal or elaborate as you want it to be, but when you forego the $50+ plates for a slew of guests, the bar service and booking a venue for an entire day, you save thousands (and thousands!) of dollars.
3. It can happen sooner.
With a traditional wedding, you’ll need at least a year to navigate through the planning process. Vendors must be researched, vetted and booked; your wedding party must be chosen and outfitted; payments must be made; décor must be chosen and sourced…and most venues in Calgary, Canmore and Banff book a year or two in advance! Another reason to elope is that you can pull it all off much sooner. Wanna get hitched next month? No problem!
