Here are th pros and cons of eloping — on the plus side, elopement are quick and easy, generally cost less than a traditional wedding, and suit couples looking for a more private way to say “I do." But you'll also have to deal with disappointed family members who might feel cheated out of a celebration.
This “elope now, party later" idea might be the perfect compromise. The couple gets the secluded ceremony they crave (or can afford), and they can host a more laid-back party or even let friends and family throw a get-together for them. If eloping and having a party afterwards sounds like your idea of romance, contact Wedding For Two, as we specialize in all-inclusive elopement packages.
Currently, I am working with a nice couple from Finland. The popularity of eloping has not quite hit that part of the world. Therefore, they are eloping and making Santa Barbara wedding a destination event.
Peace and love,
