HOW TO CONFIDENTLY TALK ABOUT ELOPING WITHOUT OFFENDING ANYONE

MEXICAN INSPIRED ELOPEMENT-HOW TO CONFIDENTLY TELL FAMILY & FRIENDS YOUR ELOPING (3)

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.

TIME OUT!

Bespoke Bride Jessica Turley Emily Pettiford Colourful Balloons

We  are beyond excited to announce that we will be relaunching in early July with a super duper new site!!

Yep that’s right after 4 years we thought it was high time we updated Bespoke Bride, to become something a little more sleeker and easier to navigate as well adding some exciting new products to our own shop. This also means we will be taking a time out for the next 2 weeks to prepare for the launch. Although we wont stop blogging altogether, we will be diverting away from our usual blogging schedule and only posting 1-2 times a week.

After months of keeping this secret its so exciting to know we are only a few weeks from sharing our new look with you. This year has already been the best year for Bespoke Bride and we can’t express how happy we are to be able to say that!

Last year was full of highs but unfortunately ended on a real low, we were both totally burnt out and forced to seriously reassess the future of Bespoke Bride. Since then, we have been working hard behind the scenes to make Bespoke Bride into something even bigger with the addition of our own shop and have been totally overwhelmed at the amount of support it has already received. We are constantly bouncing new ideas back and forth to each other, talking about new products we can add to the shop and all that fun stuff! We both feel so lucky to be doing something we love and sharing it with people that truly appreciate it, is immensely gratifying.

I have a feeling, 2017 is going to get even better yet!

One last thing I wanted to share…
