The location, the perfect dress, the guest list, the invitations. Planning for a huge wedding may be overwhelming. Once seen as a alternative for family’s dissaproval, elopement weddings are big trend now in part due to celebrities’ influence. Oftentimes, elopement ceremonies are just the initial event following a celebration with family and friends at a later date. Thinking of a spur-of-the-moment ceremony? These are our top reasons why elopement weddings may be just right for you.
Avoid The Hefty Price Tag
Big weddings equals big budgets. First, one of the main reasons for choosing an elopement wedding is the reduced cost implied in a “just for two” wedding. According to The Knot, the average wedding is now about $33,391 while elopement weddings cost about 10 percent of the average wedding.* Think about how these huge savings can help you get your head start as a married couple.
Elopement Weddings Means Less Anxiety
On one hand, huge, opulent weddings may create high anxiety levels involved with choosing the perfect dress, the ideal venue, the guest lists, sending out invitations, etc. In contrast, ceremonies “just for two” offer a higher level of intimacy than large-scale weddings. Also, eloping allows you to focus on your partner without worrying there would be way too many people on your guest list.
You Are Adventurous
Elopement weddings are a great excuse to travel to an amazing destination. Namely, Los Cabos is among the top destinations for elopement weddings due to its undeniable beauty and contrasting natural landscape with mesmerizing beach locations in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Another reason why Los Cabos is considered a top destination to elope is the convenient flight connectivity with flights arriving to the main cities of USA, Canada and Mexico operating more than 250 flights per week. Los Cabos also offers endless venues for an unforgettable wedding from traditional chapels to gorgeous beachfront terraces to restaurants with amazing scenery. Plus traveling for an elopement ceremony also means the honeymoon is included. What can be better!
