2014 Wedding Trends: Planned Elopements
New article by abc news shares how planned elopements are one of the newest wedding trends of 2014!
Sandals and Beaches Resorts can help you plan a quasi-elopement anywhere from months in advance to a few weeks before.
It’s really a romantic’s dream; being swept up in the moment and the excitement of it all and running away to an exotic location to wed the love of your life. Getting married underneath a cloudless sky, barefoot on the powdery sand with a gentle sea breeze blowing through your beach ready hairstyle, it’s all so glorious! We, in the wedding world, know that it takes some planning to be so spontaneous. As much of an oxymoron as that may be there are a few things to straighten out before you jump the broom (and your home town!) in favor of a smaller destination wedding. What documents are needed to marry in another country? Should we tell anyone or leave it as a surprise? Which destination best suits us? How long do we have to be in a foreign country before we can get married? Who will be the witness to our marriage if we runaway together? How do I set-up the day, time and location of my wedding from home? Where do I start it all?
Perhaps we mentioned some questions that hadn’t crossed you and your finance’s minds and you’re feeling a bit over-whelmed. Before you hang up your flip-flops and star-fish veil, hold on to your dream of running away together. The wedding experts at Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts offer each couple two wedding planners to help them realize their dreams of a just-for-two destination wedding. Yes, two! Imagine you’re ready to plan a destination wedding. The first person you speak with, will be a pre-travel wedding concierge. The pre-travel planner helps you design the perfect day, organizing everything from honeymoon suites and color palettes to legal documents to wedding registry help. The pre-travel planner then co-ordinates every detail of your WeddingMoon to the on-resort wedding planners who will make all on-resort arrangements that you wanted.
After you arrive at the Sandals or Beaches of your choice, your planner will meet with you, go over every single detail of your big day, make any changes or additions you’d like, help you choose an exact location to say “I Do” and be there for you every step of the way on your wedding day. You and your fiancé can literally show up, go over the details and then leave it all in the hands of an expert wedding planner. This leaves you to focus on the more important things, like what choosing a wedding dress, picking out wedding bands and imagining how perfect your wedding will be! With a dynamic-duo WeddingMoon team, you can really elope with little to no worries. The only thing you have to worry about is figuring out how you’ll break the news to your mom– but that’s another story!
