Nowadays we see a new trend in weddings: couples who elope, then celebrate with a reception-like party afterward.

On the plus side, an elopement is quick and easy. Generally, they cost less than a traditional wedding, and are perfect for couples looking for a more private way to say “I do.” But you will also have to deal with disappointed family members who might feel cheated out of a celebration.

This “elope now, party later” idea might be the perfect compromise. The couple gets the isolated ceremony they want (or can afford), and they can host a more laid-back party or even let friends and family throw a get-together for them. Would you consider eloping, then celebrating after the fact? Get in touch with the Haute Wedding team and we will organise everything for you!
