Reasons You May Want to Elope

Reasons to Elope

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, let’s talk about why you may want to elope

Over the past few years I’ve been getting a significantly higher number of couples contacting me who are choosing to elope here in Muskoka.  They find it to be a good way to save money, avoid stress and have a more intimate and personal wedding experience. Here are some reasons why you might consider eloping…

KEEP MONEY IN YOUR POCKET
Let’s face it, weddings are expensive – the average cost of a wedding in Canada is around $30k. Eloping can save you boat loads of money on venue rentals, catering, flowers, and all of the other wedding-related expenses.

LESS STRESS
Planning a wedding can be stressful, with a seemingly endless list of decisions to make, details and people to manage. Eloping opens up a new lane for you to bypass it all and focus on what really matters to each of you.

A GENUINELY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Traditional weddings can often feel impersonal, with a long list of guests and a strict schedule to follow. Eloping allows you to create a wedding that is tailored specifically to your needs and desires. Whether it’s a quiet ceremony on a beach or a mountaintop adventure, a small intimate wedding can allow for a more personal experience that is ‘all you’.

BE SPONTANEOUS
Eloping allows you to be spontaneous and have a wedding on your own terms. You don’t have to follow any rules or traditions, and you can choose to get married whenever and wherever you want.

DITCH THE DRAMA
For some couples, traditional weddings can be a source of stress and conflict due to family expectations or dynamics. Eloping allows you to avoid these issues and celebrate your love without any outside interference.

Overall, eloping is a great option for couples who want to save money, avoid stress, and have a more intimate and personal wedding experience. It’s important to keep in mind that eloping doesn’t have to be a solitary event – you can still invite a few close friends and family members to share in your special day.
