The Modern Elopement: Runaway Wedding or Perfect Alternative?

First thing’s first, modern elopements are nothing like the old-fashioned version. They are planned, intentional and just as beautiful as any other wedding. In fact, modern elopements are not a far cry from traditional weddings at all. With the rise of the “Micro Wedding,” couples often choose to have an intimate ceremony with a small handful of guests. But what separates a modern elopement from a micro-wedding is the location, the attire, and the tone. Location-wise couples can choose anywhere from a picturesque forest, mountain or even a city skyline view. Attire is not restricted to the formal tuxes and gown, couples can choose anything they are comfortable in. Casual sundresses, jeans, and even hiking boots are becoming more popular options! And finally, the tone is entirely up to the couple. Often modern elopements are more focused on the experience and being present in the moment than on the typical wedding rules and regulations.

A perk of modern elopements is that they can budget-friendly too! With smaller groups, the costs are usually much less expensive which will allow you to spend on meaningful ways to celebrate. Maybe it’s a splurge-worthy dinner after the ceremony or a fancy bottle of champagne. Couples will have the freedom to spend money on things and activities that are meaningful and will make their day memorable. However, if you and your partner are looking for a more luxurious experience with fancy guest accommodations and full-scale catering, a modern elopement can offer that too!

In addition to all these benefits, modern elopements are also a perfect opportunity for you and your partner to fully experience the moment and each other without distractions. Cliché it may sound, but a modern elopement makes the focus of the day all about the two of you, not on pleasing the guests or worrying about family politics. And since you’re only inviting your nearest and dearest, you can avoid a lot of the drama that comes with planning a larger wedding.

The modern elopement may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking to avoid the stress that comes with a traditional wedding, want to make the day unique, and create meaningful experiences, it might just be the perfect alternative for you as a bride. Modern elopements offer couples the freedom to create a day that feels special, unique, and entirely their own. So, if you’re considering running away to elope, don’t run too far! With a modern elopement, you won’t miss out on any of the beauty or celebrations that make a wedding day special.
