Five Reasons why you should elope
March 19, 2023
Eloping can be a good option for couples who want to get married in a more private or intimate setting, without the pressure and expenses of a traditional wedding. Some reasons why someone might choose to elope include:
Privacy: For some couples, getting married is a very personal and private moment, and they may not want to share it with a large group of people.
Cost: Traditional weddings can be very expensive, with costs ranging from venue rentals, catering, decorations, photography, and more. Eloping can be a more affordable option for couples on a budget.
Simplicity: Planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming, especially when dealing with family and friends’ expectations and opinions. Eloping can be a simpler and more straightforward way to get married, without the added stress and complications of a large wedding.
Spontaneity: Some couples might choose to elope because they want to embrace the romantic and adventurous side of getting married. An elopement can be a spur-of-the-moment decision, making it a unique and memorable experience.
Location: Eloping means that you don’t have the sizeable guest list that comes with a traditional wedding and this means that you really can tie the knot anywhere. Of course, some places require permits and advanced planning (and you can’t really get married anywhere because of this), but the door is open to you to get creative and go somewhere completely epic where you otherwise wouldn’t be able to go.
It’s important to note that eloping is not for everyone, and there are pros and cons to consider. Ultimately, the decision to elope should be made based on what feels right for you and your partner! Bonus points though if you choose to elope in the Rockies 😉

I swore an oath before the altar of God to protect this woman. And if you're tellin' me that ye consider your own authority to be greater than that of the Almighty, then I must inform ye that I'm not of that opinion, myself. I draw it in defense of this women, and the truth, if any here be against those two they'll answer to me, and then God, in order.
