WHAT IS AN ELOPEMENT WEDDING?
Back in the day, eloping meant running away secretly for your wedding day, which you can still do, but it’s not mandatory! Elopements are when a couple eschew a big wedding at home to go away, usually to an idyllic location. They are generally smaller weddings with just a few guests for a more intimate celebration. It could be just the two of you, as you can usually find willing witnesses at the location. However, you’d still need your celebrant and a photographer to mark the occasion.
If you’re an adventurous couple with a wild streak, eloping could be for you! Traditionally thought of as a spur of the moment thing, nowadays, you can plan it ahead of time to make sure your special day is absolutely perfect.

WHY SHOULD I ELOPE?
With so many reasons to choose elopement rather than a big ol’ do, here are a few:
- You love the possibility of escaping to a beautiful location like Byron Bay and being surrounded by people close to you.
- You want to feel comfortable on your wedding day. You dislike being the centre of attention and would feel more at ease without all eyes on you.
- There is less to plan and worry about with just a few people attending your special day; it could be fun and stress-free.
- Save yourself some money with a small guest list-usually less than 20.
- Spend your wedding day focussing on each other rather than other people.
- It could be a secret elopement filled with excitement and romance!
- You don’t need to book a big fancy venue, opening up more unusual and outdoor locations.
- Small weddings can mean more, as the guests will likely be real friends who are invested in you and your partner’s lives together.
Frequently Asked Question
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable
1 Should elopements be kept secret?
Once you’ve decided on elopement, you could shroud your magical day in secrecy and not tell a soul. This could be an exciting secret to share, and many couples choose this route, preferring to divulge the details upon their return. However, you could also share your joyous occasion with close friends or family and maybe invite two special people to act as witnesses.
2 Does an elopement need to be ``no-frills``?
Just because elopements are on a smaller scale doesn’t mean they will be bland or basic; they can still be lavish affairs if you want to push for those luxuries. A scaled-down size means you can spend more indulging in your wedding fantasies. Even when working within a tight budget, you can create the best day by adding special touches to ensure that you absolutely nailed the perfect day. Look at all the vendors you might need and consider upgrading the parts that matter the most for your dream wedding.
3 How do I announce my elopement?
It needn’t be difficult to tell your family and friends you will elope. You chose each other to spend your lives together and telling your friends and family might be easier than you could’ve imagined. Of course, you can always decide to announce the elopement afterwards. There are some great ways to spill the beans, such as throwing a party, sending out announcement cards or posting a photo online of your beautiful wedding. Choose your moment and ensure your reveal carries your signature style.
