Have you ever considered eloping? We've come up with 5 Reasons Why You Should Elope that you should consider.

1. Save Money

First on our list of 5 Reasons Why You Should Elope is obvious. You have an opportunity to save money. Financial concerns are a major factor for couples when planning a wedding. Many couples are drawn to elopement for this very reason because paying for a wedding reception can be very expensive. Eloping will allow you to use the money that you save on wedding expenses for a honeymoon or down payment on a future home.

2. You Prefer a More Intimate Setting

Not every bride wants a huge, elaborate wedding. Some brides prefer to enjoy their day with their fiance and would much rather ditch the bridesmaids and all that comes along with planning a big wedding. If you desire a more intimate setting, then you may want to consider eloping. You can always invite the people that you hold "near and dear" to the ceremony like your Mom and Dad or best friend. Also, you can still hire a professional photographer to capture those unforgettable moments.

3. Stress-free Wedding

Also on our list of 5 Reasons Why You Should Elope is the fact that you don't want all the stress that comes along with planning a wedding. And believe me, it can get stressful. If you'd rather opt out of planning seating charts, tracking RSVPs, and figuring out who to ask to be in your wedding party, then eloping may be an option for you.

4. Adventure

Many couples that choose to elope are in love with the idea of an adventure. Finding an epic location to exchange your wedding vows such as, on a ski lift or at the top of a mountain, sounds more exciting than walking down the aisle with others staring at you. You'd much rather have on your wedding gown and a pair of cowboy boots in the desert. If you love to travel and explore new life experiences, an elopement might be just right for you. Be sure to bring your wedding photographer along to capture the moments.

5. Tradition Isn't Your Thing

You've never been one to follow tradition and you're not willing to start just because you're getting married. You love making your own rules. This is another one of our 5 Reasons Why You Should Elope. Rules of society are a complete bore to you because you enjoy living on the edge. That's why elopement may be the right choice for you.
