Now that a union has been agreed to, it’s time to plan a wedding!
As you’re planning it feels like you keep running into every roadblock imaginable. So many decisions, so many choices, so many deadlines, it feels completely overwhelming at times! It feels contradictory that it’s some of the most stressful days that lead up to our happiest day.
Are you starting to think of just throwing your hands up, grabbing your partner and running off to elope?
A lot of people have done that. Businesses in Vegas have made quite a lucrative business of it. Before you do that though, sit down and think about everything that eloping means.
To elope is to “run away” and secretly forego the big wedding. The idea in its base form even seems romantic in some ways. Sneaking away in the middle of the night to commit yourself to another with no fanfare, just two people expressing their love. No fuss, no muss, right?
Remember that your actions have ramifications. Your decisions leave a ripple effect on the lives of others. If you want to elope that’s your decision of course, but think of it how it will affect things.
For one, you will be alone as a couple. No mom, dad, friends or family to share in your joy, witness your vows or celebrate with you. In fact, it’s quite likely many people you encounter are going to be very disappointed if you choose that path.
Secondly, most people who secretly run off and elope don’t dress up for their wedding. No looking dapper in an elegant tuxedo; no stunning the crowd with a gorgeous white dress. It’ll be more along the lines of day old blue jeans or a button down fresh from the package. You’ll also deny yourself the future joy of a fantastic story of the wedding told to the kids. There will be no dress to pass down or wedding pictures to show.
Before you decide to choose this, what appears to be a romantic climax for you and your significant other remember this is one of those life decisions that will stick. Once you have done this you won’t likely ever have the wedding of your dreams unless you divorce and remarry and that road is not one that’s fun to travel.
If you want to elope, that’s your decision and ultimately, people are going to be happy for you and congratulate you on your union.
