Should You Elope on Vacation?
One of the great things about eloping is that it gives you the opportunity to have that destination wedding that you have been dreaming about – without the hefty price tag! You can enjoy a few days away with your sweetheart while also pledging your love to one another. What could be more perfect than that? That is why we coined the term ‘elopacation‘ to describe a vacation which also includes an elopement ceremony.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of eloping while on vacation:
It Could Save You Money
One of the biggest advantages of eloping while you are on vacation is that you will save a substantial amount of money. Eloping in general can save you more than 90% on the cost of a traditional wedding. If you were already planning on taking a vacation then you can easily add on an elopement ceremony for just a little extra.
It Is Much Less Stressful
Planning a large traditional wedding is stressful. There are so many different things to choose and many different vendors to deal with. However, when you choose to have an elopacation there is a good chance that you will be booking an elopement package where all of the planning will be taken care of for you. All you need to do is arrange for the appropriate marriage licenses and witnesses, then show up! Some vendors may even help with the paperwork giving you even less to worry about.
There is no Family Drama
Why is it that weddings seem to bring out the worst in families? It seems that there is always some kind of family drama happening and that is one of the big stress factors with a big wedding. When you choose a destination wedding, elopement or elopacation you can dispense with the family drama.
