Elopements in Hawaii
Not all couple dream of having a flamboyant wedding. For some, they like the privacy or the spontaneity of eloping. These are some ideas on the ways to handle the distinctive aspects of an elopement.
A true elopement is when a couple leaves their family and friends to get married all by themselves. Maybe they have known each other for some years, and they decide to get married by getting on a plane to Hawaii. Or maybe the groom and bride have had a brief but passionate whirlwind courtship and spontaneously decide to get married. What these types of elopements have in common is that they are spur of the moment, and above all, done without telling family or friends first.
Nowadays, some couples don’t have any secret elopements and they will inform some close friends on their plans, and may even bring along a maid of honor, best man, and witnesses to their vows. What this type of elopement has in common is that the couple still keeps their big announcement till after the ceremony. However, there are still a group of people that know about this wedding ceremony.
There are several reasons why a couple may decide to elope instead of having a traditional wedding. Freedom is absolutely one of the big reasons. Some couples may fear family objections, and decide to pre-empt them by marrying without seeking for the approval of their parents. There are also some couples, who have been planning a big wedding, but they found themselves overwhelmed by the enormity of it, and they decide to scrap the big production in favor of a small but meaningful ceremony that only involves the two of them.
Whatever the reason for choosing to elope, there are things that you need to understand. A practical thing is to know about the laws of the state in which you plan to be wed. The reason is that in some iconic location for elopements they have different process that you need to follow. Rev. James Chun can easily help you with all this information. Therefore you don’t have to stress yourselves.
The Magic of an Elopement Wedding
One of the most attention-grabbing parts of eloping is the aftermath. You must be ready for the fact that some members of your family may be more shocked than overjoyed. And if you get married without informing your best friend, expect some hurt feelings may arise. Once everything is settled a bit, the couple may decide to host a small reception in honor of their marriage. This is one of the best ways to celebrate your marriage with those that you love.
Eloping can be dramatic and fun, and it is definitely something that couples have been doing since the beginning of time. If you are thinking about going down this path, just make sure that you have taken enough time to reflect on what it means to be married. This will ensure that your heart is following your head, not the other way around. And if you do decide to elope, then elopement in Hawaii on the island of Oahu is the best place you can be.
