Let’s start small, real small.
Just the two of you escaping to the mountains? Keeping your ceremony private? Then you’re all set and you’re welcome to go about the rest of your day.
Perhaps you’re in love with the idea of running away. The romance of it all.
Eloping can be incredibly romantic, easygoing, thrilling. It is what you make of it. The best part is that it really is what you make of it. In other words, you can invite others to join your elopement.
Often a trusted long-time friend tags along.
Perhaps just your parents.
Perhaps just immediate family.
It’s all up to you. Elopement or intimate wedding, call it what you want!
You and your fiancée need to envision what you want out of the day. Your answer will be affected by financial constraints and family dynamics, by romantic dreams and a touch of reality.
However your guest list pans out, whatever the reasons may be, know that your wedding day is exactly what you make of it.
