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.
Just one more thing—if you're headed abroad, don't forget to check the legal requirements for marriage in your country of choice.
