Are you someone who loves alone time, and gets overwhelmed in crowds? A ‘just us’ destination wedding, or elopement, might be perfect for you. Not everyone likes to be the center of attention. For many introverts especially, a crowd can seem to take away the magic of the moment. Here are five reasons why eliminating all of your guests could be the perfect choice for you!
1. Focus On Romance
Couples that host large weddings often spend more time greeting and socializing with guests than they do in intimate moments together. If you cut your entire guest list, your ceremony will be all about you and your man.
2. Budget Limitations
Destination weddings, as well as large events, can start to get expensive quickly! If you have a limited amount to spend, opting for a beautiful beach elopement could really ease your mind. Cutting your guest list will certainly free up some funds! Use your money to buy a gorgeous gown or travel to a really exotic and special location.
3. Less Stress
The daunting task of arranging every detail of a wedding party can paralyze some. Because of this, they put off their wedding and wait for that day when they will have the time and mental energy to plan it. Instead of putting it off, move forward with your relationship by keeping your nuptials simple!
4. Celebrate Later
If the thought of excluding your friends and family is weighing on you, consider this: you can always celebrate later. Parents who want to plan a big event for you certainly can. It will just be a celebration party rather than a wedding! This gives you a great way to include friends and relatives.
5. Intimate Event
A ‘just us’ wedding is inherently personal and private. If you value intimacy, this route could be much better suited to you than a wedding with guests.
These reasons may or may not tip the scales for you! I personally would have loved to have a ‘just us’ destination wedding, except for the fact that I always imagined hugging my sisters after saying my vows. Sometimes being surrounded by your tribe is worth the stress and cost of event planning. The joy of being with your loved ones can be more important that protecting intimacy. What do you think?
Is a ‘just us’ wedding the perfect solution, or do you think you would regret it later on?
