Can you say marital bliss? Tangi and Jeremy are relationship goals– these two didn’t stop smiling the entire day! What’s even more astounding is that these two eloped! They are proof that an elopement can be just as romantic and special as a big, wedding day celebration. Whether you and your S.O. are trying to save some money or you are both the spontaneous type, eloping may be just what the doctor ordered. Here’s a couple things to keep in mind if you and your soon-to-be spouse are thinking of eloping:
1. Reach out to local venues and vendors.
They know exactly how to accommodate any event of any size. An elopement is just as important as a big wedding ceremony– not only will you be glad you made it special, but you’ll have plenty to share with your family and friends that weren’t there to experience it themselves.
2. Don’t forget to tell your loved ones that you got married!
Yes, they will understand that you wanted an intimate ceremony without them since they love you so! But don’t forget about the ones that love you most in all of the excitement of being newlyweds. They’ll get curious as to when the big day is after they hear about the engagement, so just give it to them straight.
3. Finally, be prepared for their reactions.
Yes, your grandmother loves you with all of her heart, but don’t be alarmed if she isn’t too keen on the thought of an elopement. Tell those closest to you in person or in a note to avoid emotional breakdowns over social media. Just keep in mind, that if someone is upset, it’s probably because they wanted so badly to be there to see you on the biggest day of your life thus far!
