“We’re just having the courthouse wedding now & we’ll have a big wedding later”.
Oh, the dream of having a big wedding later…
I’ve heard this spoken by the bride as we stand outside the courthouse many times.
The heartbreaking reality…
Life happens…and “later” never does.
Most couples often times aren’t actually able to make their big wedding dream come true. Life gets too busy. To many “liefy” things happen & take precedence. Jobs, children home, finances, life.
It truly breaks my heart to see so many couples have to go through with having a courthouse wedding instead of having something that’s just for them! Something that’s beautiful, romantic, holds meaning, and can be more special than a cold impersonal courthouse!
But there IS another option that still requires a little planning, can be done at the drop of a hat if need be, and is intimate, romantic & personalized just for YOU.
I want to share the different between elopements vs. courthouse weddings and so you can make the best decision for you!
The Benefits of Having an Elopement:
The most beautiful thing about elopements vs. courthouse weddings is that you can:
• Choose where YOU want to do your elopement.
• Completely customize how YOU want to do your elopement.
• Incorporate pieces into it that mean something to both of YOU to personalize it and make it your own.
You’re not stuck getting married in a cold, impersonal, undecorated room or office.
Elopements take the same amount of time and planning as a courthouse wedding, but you can make it completely personalized to tell your unique love story as a couple.
The other amazing thing about elopements vs. courthouse weddings is that you can do it just as quickly as you would a courthouse wedding. Which is perfect for our busy lives!
The only things you really need for an elopement are:
• A wedding officiant
• Your marriage license
• Your wedding attire and accessories
• A bouquet if you want one (trust me, you want one!)
That’s it! Sweet, simple, and it is completely YOU!
