Let's bust a myth together, shall we?
The Myth: An elopement is a selfish wedding, just the two of you, and friends and family are never invited.
The Reality: An elopement is an intentionally small wedding, which may or may not include friends and family, that brings the focus of the day back to the couple.
The very definition of an elopement is changing — and all for the better. Gone are the days where it's this shameful, run-away act of irresponsibility, and here to stay is the radical idea that it's a more authentic way of celebrating your union in a way that feels the most "you". And that does not mean that you have to exclude your loved ones. In fact, most eloping couples really value and cherish their close relationships and want to celebrate this milestone with them.
If you're on the proverbial fence about eloping and have hesitations because of this ill-conceived notion that your most important loved ones can't be present, allow me to put your mind at ease. Here, I'll talk about some different ways in which you can include them in your best adventure yet!
