10 Reasons Why We Believe You Should Elope

I’m just going to say it: you should elope.

Chances are, most of the married people you know had a traditional wedding. They married at a big venue, with a big guest count, and an even bigger amount of stress. Maybe all of that chaos doesn’t really sound like you. And that’s ok! In fact, it’s awesome!

Deciding to have a super small wedding abroad or in another city isn’t an easy decision. Planning something that’s far away isn’t always simple & the pressure from society to throw a big to-do with everyone you know is real. Combine those two and you’ll find that it’s super easy to get sucked into the traditional wedding machine.

We believe that HOW you get married matters. You deserve to start your life together with a wedding that truly reflects who you are together! So if you don’t want a big wedding, then don’t have one!


Here are 10 reasons why we believe elopements and micro weddings are the absolute best way to get married!

1. It’s truly intimate and 100% about your commitment to each other.

2. You’ll have freedom from outside expectations of how your day should be.

3. No pressure to perform in front of 100+ people.

4. Instead of worrying about the cake that’s melting, the flowers that haven’t arrived, and the flower girl who is screaming crying & refusing to walk down the aisle… you can actually focus on your partner and having fun.

5. You can travel somewhere epic, have an adventurous elopement and a once in a lifetime experience for less than half of the cost of a traditional wedding (!!!!!!!)

6. Elopements and micro weddings are not about the show or performance.

7. You get to spend your money on you. Did you know that for a traditional wedding, the average cost per person is over $250? Would you take each and every one of those people out to an extremely expensive dinner? I didn’t think so…

8. You should elope. Why? Two words: Less drama. ‘Nuff said.

9. You’ll be able to do things your way.

10. You can already be at your honeymoon destination.

BONUS: You’ll have photographs that are 100% about your story, because who wants a zillion photos of people you probs don’t even know?
