DO: Do it for the right reasons.
Eloping is a big decision, so make sure it’s what both of you really want.
DONT: Forget about the paperwork.
Getting married boils down to a government-issued contract – so don’t forget to legitimize it.
DO: Tell your family and friends.
Just because they won’t be apart of the big day doesn’t mean they can’t get excited about it. By sending elopement announcements or having a small get-together, it will make your loved ones feel included.
DONT: Worry about the guest list.
The only guests you need is the love of your life and a witness. Anyone else is just extra.
DO: Make it all about you and your partner.
This is your day, treat it as such. you are in control.
DONT: Stress about every detail.
There are so many things to enjoy about the occasion, enjoy every moment of it.
DO: Spend money.
Put that hard earned cash to good use on an incredible location or expensive wine, you’ll only get to do this once (we hope).
DONT: Expect everything to be cheap.
No matter how many guests you have/ don’t have, some costs will stay the same. Whether it be your dress, hair, makeup, or the photography, be sure to save some extra cash for the little things.
DO: Choose a destination together.
The time and place should be special to both of you. Make sure you and your partner share equal roles in the planning process.
DONT: Let the event take over.
Even though elopements are meant to be intimate events, they can still be overwhelming. Don’t let the elopement get bigger than you intend.
