Elopement or small destination wedding?

Undecided between an elopement or a small destination wedding?

You have been engaged and you want to move ahead with wedding plans. But something happened and things got complicated? Or simply your childhood dream is to have a small and very intimate wedding ceremony? Well, many couples think that between an elopement and an intimate destination wedding there is not much difference. Wrong.

With an elopement you will be just the two of you. No public clapping or greeting to you. So if you decide to elope be prepared to the reaction of families and friends, no matter how much you will prepare them, someone will be upset. On the other hand, if you elope you could save a lot of money. Have an intimate ceremony, a romantic dinner in a charming restaurant and the best hotel you ever dreamt for your first night. It will be just the two of you, so absolutely the most romantic day of your life, no anxieties of everybody else’s opinions and requirements. Do not feel guilty for making the decision of eloping. At least you can organise a post-elopement party and make everyone happy!

If you decide for a small destination wedding, invite close family and friends, but no more than that. Otherwise is going to turn in a full size destination wedding. Choose a small and intimate venue, share the whole day with your bridal party. Having fewer guests at your wedding allows you to spend more quality time with each of them.

With a small destination wedding you will have more room in your budget to offer your guests a luxury wedding on a small scale. Otherwise you can invest the money in your honeymoon or in something that attires you. A smaller wedding means less time spent on checking your wedding list and may be less stress for you.
