Christine and Jenny married in a pop up ceremony in Washington DC.

Assuming you’re a human being with actual feelings, you probably care at least a little about what people think? Yeah yeah I know we preach alot about your ‘wedding day being your way’ but unless you have a heart of stone, you never truly turn off to what people are saying about you, it’s human nature after all? So it should come as no surprise that the fear of telling people you have decided to elope is a concern for many couples who have made that very decision as reader Abbie explained in her recent comment on our blog…
“We have decided to elope – we did have a blessing to do so by my parents but now that I have mentioned it again it hasn’t really gone down well, as if they’ve completely changed their minds on the idea? We are still doing it regardless but its kind of put a dampener on it… I’m so excited to elope and likewise cannot wait to be his wife. But just the daunting fact of how to tell people, especially when the reception is 4 months after we are married? Any advice on how to tell people? Is it rude to just send an invite to our party? Or do we publicly announce? Please help! I’m in such a panic about it.”
While there are many good reasons for couples wanting to elope i.e costs, stress, family feuds etc, you really shouldn’t let your fear of telling people about your decisions prevent you from following your dream wedding, so we have compiled a list of helpful tips to hopefully make that process easier.Details
At some point many brides and grooms planning a wedding will have considered getting married in a public place, but most people will get stumped when it comes to finding a suitable location and understanding all the rules and regulations. That is why most couples will end up dismissing the idea and opting for an easier more traditional venue instead. Though planning a wedding in public will take a little more planning and research, the benefits of choosing to marry in a public place will usually far outweigh the effort. It is often thought of as more budget friendly option as venues will often charge a much smaller fee, decor is unlikely to be needed as the location will already offer amazing natural beauty and the experience will be second to none. With this in mind, we have listed our top tips for planning a wedding in a public place, as a quick guide to getting your started…
1. Know the Law?
The law on getting married in public places differs depending on the location. For example here in the UK, venues need to be licensed for the marriage to be considered legally binding. This doesn’t rule out getting married in a public place if it doesn’t hold a license completely, it just means a legal civil ceremony will need to be performed elsewhere to formalize the marriage. Many will opt for a humanist ceremony in their preferred location instead, this can be a lot more flexible and highly personalised to suit your beliefs and is something a celebrant will be able to help you with.Details
