Three Reasons to Elope Besides Saving money

Firstly, elopements are not always shotgun weddings held at the local court. When I talk about elopements I’m talking about a wedding that is an intimate and raw experience of love shared between two people and crafted to reflect their unique journey. These elopements may be witnessed by the bare minimum (2 other people) or they may be witnessed by a small group of loved ones. Regardless, what defines them as an elopement is their intimacy, their honesty and their intention to focus solely on the union of two people.
Secondly, saving money is not the only reason to elope! In fact, I’m going to share with you three reasons to elope that have nothing to do with money!

You’re finally getting married. This is the moment you’ve been planning for and dreaming about for so long. You walk down the aisle, and the celebrant says some boring sh*t that means absolutely jack to you and your soon-to-be husband/wife, you say “I do”, kiss and it’s done.

Guest Books that matter

The guest book serves as an important record of your wedding; something that you can look back on in 50 years time and think, “Oh yeah, they were there too! Remember how they rocked the d-floor?!”. However, there’s nothing more boring than looking back through your guest book and finding the classic “Wishing you all the best, love Aunty Marg”.

So what’s the alternative? Well, if you haven’t already, have a quick search on Pinterest and you will find everything from signing mirrors to date jars to signed Jenga pieces! Today I’m going to share with you my guest book, how I made it and why I loved it so much.
