To elope, or not to elope! That is the question on all couples minds' when the stress of planning a wedding is in full swing!
Your fiancé has completely banned the talk of menu options, colour schemes and makeup looks. Your mum wants you to invite all the ladies from her book club and your father had a right fit at the cost of your dream venue! And to top it all off, you still haven't found your cinderella dress.
This is the exact moment when the words ring in your mind "LET'S ELOPE!"
It's okay to want to skip the drama of a wedding, especially if you and your hubby-to-be come from different cultures. Family feuds are not the right environment to say your vows in! Sometimes, it might not just be feuding families, but also a +1 you don't want your best friend to bring to your wedding.
An elopement is not running away to get married and leaving your loved ones behind - it's finding the best way YOU as a couple want to start your life together. Wouldn't you love to get married in Cape Town with Table Mountain as a backdrop, in the Kruger National Park or the gorgeous coastal town of Hermanus? It sounds tempting to us!
Let us know what you think about eloping; did we sell you on the idea or is it still taboo in your planning process?
