What are the pros and cons to elopement?

My fiance wants to elope and I don't.


Answer by  Niq (204)

Elopement is something that should be given very serious thought. It isn't entirely bad to elope because you'd save a ton of money. It also re-establishes the importance of just you and your fiance being present. However, family and friends might be hurt they weren't allowed to participate. Also, no wedding means no wedding gifts.

Some pros are: less expensive, less hassle, don't have to invite a lot of people some cons are: won't have your family there, won't have the wedding of your dreams

Elopements are usually much cheaper than a full-blown wedding since you will not have to pay for a venue and a reception. The con is that you wouldn't have a huge reception full of people. You could compromise and do a destination wedding with a small party.
