Weddings are romantic, emotional, beautiful affairs. But they are also stress-inducing and very expensive. So if you’re not really looking forward to spending tens of thousands of dollars on a weekend-worth of festivities, then why not just run off with your S.O. to a faraway place—just the two of you and the love that bounds you?
Eloping doesn’t have to mean getting hitched by an Elvis impersonator in a chapel in Vegas (although, if that’s your thing, go ahead). Nowadays, elopements are a lot chicer and they usually include jetting off to a romantic destination and saying your I Dos on a white sand beach or among lush greenery somewhere in the mountains.
