So, you’ve done it. You’ve managed to find the love of your life, they love you back, and you’ve said “yes” to one of the most important questions you’ll ever be asked. But what comes next? Most people spend months and even years planning the perfect wedding. They think about every single detail and they make sure every inch of the venue, the dress, and the flowers is perfect. However, that’s not everyone’s style. If you want to simply focus on saying “I do” with your favorite person in front of you, why not follow the ultimate guide to eloping for your wedding day.
Choose Where You Want To Elope
There are two kinds of elopement in the world. There’s the elopement where you make a few little plans in quick succession, without telling anyone, and there’s the elopement where you do the whole thing on a whim. While there are some people who will decide in a split second that they’re going to Vegas, there are others who want to make it a bit more meaningful. So, you need to decide where you want to elope too. Will it be your local courthouse? Or will it be on a beach in a completely different country? The choice is yours.
Make Sure You Can Actually Elope
Although the idea of elopement sounds exciting and spontaneous, it doesn’t always happen like that. Sure, it happens in movies, but they aren’t real life. Before you do decide to tie the knot on a whim, make sure that you can obtain a marriage license. While there are some states and countries where you can get married at the click of your fingers, other places need at least a week’s notice to provide you with an official license. It’s not quite as fun if you can’t actually get married…
Find Your Wedding Rings And Outfits
Of course, this one isn’t compulsory. You can get married in jeans and a t-shirt and place a Haribo ring on each other’s fingers if you want. Yet, if you want your spontaneous marriage to feel more like a wedding, then finding the perfect ring and outfit will help you make it truly special.
Eloping isn’t for everyone, but if you don’t fancy a big, white wedding, then it could be for you!
