      There are many reasons why people want to elope in the US versus having a more traditional wedding. Since there is a lot of stressful times that go into planning a wedding, it can be very difficult for many people to go through it all in order to begin their lives together. When they elope, they do not need to worry about a lot of details and issues that surround the planning of a regular wedding.


      The reasons for an elopement can be varied. People may find that it may be too difficult for them to go forward with a large and crowded wedding. Here are some other reasons, why elopements are becoming more popular as the years go by:

      1. Economical – A couple can save a lot of money by eloping. They will not have to spend dozens of thousands of dollars on an elaborate reception. Their costs will be very minimal when they elope and in most cases, they are already where they want to be for their honeymoon and therefore, they save a lot more money overall.

      2. Privacy – For some couples, they need privacy when they are becoming a married couple. They might not want other people to know that they are married right away. This is the case with many high profile people.

      3. Time – Elopements can be completed quickly and easily. They do not have to wait a long time to get the reception hall and the church lined. Elopements can happen fast and in places where the couple wants to be.

      4. Less Stress – There is no need to worry about all of the details like a couple would have to when they plan a big wedding. They can do things simply and easily so that they have time to have fun instead of being extremely stressed out all of the time.

      5. Choices – There are so many choices for couples to pick from when they want to elope.
