What if you and your partner decide that eloping is the most authentic way for you to get married, but you're not sure you want the day to exclude your core friends and family? What if I told you that you don't have to make any hard choices; that you can have the best of both worlds? Truth is, you can have a meaningful elopement AND include your family and close friends!

Traditional weddings seem to have an endless seeming amount of rules and expectations built into them, but the beauty of eloping is that rules simply do not exist. You can throw out convention and curate your day in a way that means the most to you.

Eloping isn't about exclusion. The concept has evolved from people thinking you're running away, concealed by the dark of night and getting married in some shameful way. Eloping is glorious, and it just so happens that you can plan it in any way you want! You can include family and friends in planning, celebrating, and participating in your actual elopement.

Let's take a look at some ways to make that happen.
