The biggest wedding trend ever is an elopement wedding. Have you ever heard of it? Well, it’s the ticket if you and your partner want to have a private and romantic getaway for two. That’s exactly what it means to elope. But then, you’re probably thinking, “Elopement?
How can you sneak away and arrange a quickie wedding? What’s more, how can you plan an undisclosed and memorable spur-of-the-moment event without disappointing, upsetting and hurting your family and friend’s feelings?”
