It’s been established that I love planning and have been envisioning my wedding day since I was a little girl; however, the adult version of myself is here today to talk about eloping.
The elopement debate came into play a little over a year ago. Mr. Narwhal and I were discussing our future wedding on the regular and what we saw as a vision for our wedding. You see, a part of us struggles with how big weddings have become. Something has shifted in the last generation or two, and since the dawn of the internet, Facebook, and Pinterest, weddings are bigger than ever.
Let’s be real. It’s a big business. You put the word wedding in front of anything and the price magically increases.
So in the early stages of pre-engagement planning and discussion, I was faced with the realities of the costs of throwing together a wedding. And, it’s kind of a big deal. A $10,000 wedding is considered a budget wedding these days, which is a lot of money in my little world.
