2020 was one for the history books, to say the least. Covid has changed events for the foreseeable future, and there are so many captivating reasons to just forget the big wedding and elope! While some grow up dreaming of their wedding day as a big magical celebration, there are others who choose to have an elopement.
When most people think of eloping, they think of that white chapel in Viva Las Vegas or City Hall. Those are great places to elope, but we’re talking about a helipad elopement, or eloping on top of a mountain! In 2021, you will see a rise in Elopement ceremonies (especially the Millennials!).
1. Weddings are expensive!
The average cost of a wedding in 2019 was $30,000. That amount is a bit hefty if you and your partner are paying for the whole wedding. That is almost equivalent to a year of college tuition!
On the other hand, elopements are typically significantly cheaper than the average wedding. The pricing often varies, but Jillian Nicole Events is able to offer an entire ceremony and reception package at a reasonable price.
2. Elopements can be a lot more personal and unique than the average wedding.
We had this couple that wanted to get married with a view, so what better way to get married than on a helipad?! It allowed the couple to have an intimate and unique ceremony, without all the family drama.
3. A Fun Adventurous Wedding Day!
When you elope, you get to experience an adventure with your loved one. It can be a long day, hiking to the top of a mountain and saying vows on the top of Runyon Canyon.
Or it can be a relaxing day in the presidential suite, sipping on some champagne and writing your vows together.
4. Private Dining Experience
A typical wedding would require so much planning and logistics, where an elopement still needs some planning, but let your wedding planner handle all that for you!
Instead of having a reception with 100+ people, revert to having an intimate dinner with your hubby-to-be. A customized meal, with a personalized playlist and a glass of champagne, is the way to go.
5. Intimacy & Privacy
In a world like today, we rarely have any privacy anymore. Something about an intimate ceremony, where it’s just you, your loved one, and a witness is a sacred moment.
What some couples are doing is eloping in 2021 and having a bigger celebration with family and friends later on. This allows you and your Fiancé to have a private and intimate ceremony without a big audience.
