Couples Elope for a Reason

Jun 12, 2008
In the times of our parents and grandparents, eloping was unheard of. Couples may have opted to elope back then but it was a strictly confidential information meant for the immediate family members only. There are also other couples who go for that spur-of-the-moment union so they would rather elope than prepare for an elaborate wedding.

Eloping is an act very few would consider. This few who do so, cited their reasons:

* For economic reasons - Let us face it, traditional weddings are not newlywed-friendly. It will milk the couple's savings up to the last centavo. Even a simple wedding would necessitate much preparation with the number of guests not lower than 50. Eloping would erase all this.

Couples planning to elope still have to take something from their savings though. This small sum will go to their transportation, a little ceremony, and honeymoon. They could also choose to invite a few people dearly close to them. In essence, it is just like the traditional wedding minus the trappings and overzealous guests.

* Eloping is best for couples who are not into big weddings - For couples who may have been married previously, a grand wedding is something they could not probably stand to be a part of for it may bring back memories of the previous one. There are also first-timers who may not want to have their vows known to the entire community. Eloping makes marriage easier for these couples.

* To have a stress-free union - weddings are meant to be a big event. Many couples go all out to make their wedding day a day to be remembered (or for those extremely conscious of other people's approval, a day etched in every guest's memory). This is what usually stresses couples. A wedding planner is now available to do all the preparations for the couples but then they still have to make major decisions which the wedding planner cannot do by herself.

If they elope, couples will never have to face this much stress. A handful of guests will not necessitate elaborate preparation. This will also allow you to follow the wedding you would like to have as opposed to a big one wherein you are pressured to live up to other people's expectations of your wedding

* Eloping is romantic - Some couples have a notion that a spur-of-the-moment wedding with no one else to witness it but the officiating pastor or priest is the most romantic thing in the world. There is something in this action which attracts couples. The sense of urgency and mystery are what they are after.

Remember that eloping does not really leave out the guests. Couples who elope can still invite few chosen guests they would like to share their precious moment with. As mentioned earlier, there are now wedding packages available to couples on a tight budget.

Eloping has evolved through time. Options are now available for couples to choose from. They need not keep their marriage from people they love just because they are on a tight budget, it only takes a few preparations and couples are all set for their most important day.
