3 Signs You Should Plan an Elopement Instead of A Wedding

Have you been considering planning an elopement instead of a wedding? If you can’t decide which type of ceremony you want, take into consideration these 3 signs.

Money is tight

Lets face it, planning a wedding can get extremely expensive. Not everyone has the funds saved up or family help to cover the expenses of a wedding. Maybe you would prefer spending the money elsewhere like on your honeymoon. The good news is that elopements can still be beautiful ceremonies that are more cost effective.

You want to get married right away

There are plenty of reasons why couples want to get married as soon as possible. Maybe you’re expecting a baby, or maybe you just can’t wait any longer. If you and your partner are looking to get married sooner than later, an elopement is the perfect solution because it’s much easier to pull off in a short amount of time.

Decision making causes stress

When planning a wedding there are endless decisions that have to be made. From choosing a venue, to small details like where your cousin’s girlfriend will be sitting, are just some examples of things you have to consider. If making decisions stresses you out, then you would probably be happier planning an elopement. Our expert elopement planners have created pop-up wedding packages to take out all of the stress that a typical wedding would have.

If you’re on the fence and can’t decide which way to go, consider the above factors before you make a decision. The most important thing is that this process is enjoyable to you and your partner. If planning stresses you out, contact our pop-up wedding planners to help you choose an all inclusive elopement package!

Top 2019 Wedding Trends for Your Elopement

2019 Wedding Trends

The start of a brand new year brings new weddings trends! If you’re planning an elopement this year, it’s a good idea to be aware of some trends on the rise to help inspire you. Below we’ve made a list of the top 3 weddings trends of 2019.

Forget a Color Scheme               

This year it’s less about having matching colors, and more about adding creativity! Instead of asking your bridal party to all wear the same color, be open to the idea of asking them to wear a spectrum of different shades. This allows for more personality to come through and adds character to your wedding.

Less is More

In 2019, we’re predicting that we’ll see less of the extravagant weddings and more minimalism, especially when it comes to bridal bouquets. If you’re wondering what to choose, think smaller bouquets but still very bold. Earthy and natural tones will also be trending this year.

Less Formal

In addition, the weddings this year will be less extravagant and more personalized. We’re predicting that we’ll see table arrangements that are less lavish and simpler. Brides also want smaller wedding parties this year, so think about the handful of people that are very close to you, and maybe nix the third cousin.

2019 is all about creating a personalized wedding and less about the extravagance. If you’re ready to plan your intimate pop-up wedding, contact Pop the Knot today, and we’ll help you every step of the way!
