What is considered an “elopement” in the wedding industry?
To elope which literally means to run away and not come back to the place of origin has gotten a new meaning with regards to weddings. More and more couples choose an elopement not because they want to get married in secret, but because they opt for a smaller, more intimate celebration.
Often elopements are arranged in some stunning natural locations, but city elopements are popular too. Elopements differ on the number of guests, starting with only a couple on their own and ranging to about 30 guests.
Pluses of the elopement for the couple:
- For those who love adventure and traveling an elopement offers unlimited opportunities.
- The elopement allows the couple to cut on the cost of having lots of guests and focus on the things that are the priority for them.
- Instead of being a one-day event an elopement can be a weekend or even a week-long celebration.
- Couples that are affected by COVID-19 restrictions, often opt for having a smaller wedding on their original date. A popular option is an elopement in the near future followed by a full-on wedding celebration when the restrictions will be lifted.
- Elopements are perfect for creating gorgeous photos and wedding films. They allow more time for filming than a traditional wedding with a rather strict schedule and elopements are often held in picturesque locations which are the key element to those unbelievable photos and wedding films we enjoy watching.
