Today we’re going to be talking about something that I’ll bet you’re not expecting: elopements! While elopements can be fun and exciting for the bride and groom, they can also be a source of tension within their social circles. Friends and family can feel left out if they aren’t invited to participate in your big day, which makes it hard for them to share your excitement about your simple, spontaneous wedding.
I’m here with some good news-- you can have your cake and eat it, too. In other words: Go. Have your elopement. Enjoy that sense of whirlwind romance. But then, come back and celebrate with your family and friends at a big ol’ party. Photo courtesy of mywedding.com
Having a reception that celebrates your union allows your friends and family to share your joy as you begin your life with your beloved. To help your loved ones feel even more included, consider spicing up your reception with a travel theme that incorporates mementos from your elopement. For example, decorating the tables with pictures of you and your sweetie during your travels will make your guests feel like they were right there with you.
