Luckily, there are endless options for those who want to elope, and it's no longer considered some taboo, clandestine ritual: It's a fun way for adventurous couples to include their close family and friends in their ceremony, while also possibly traveling somewhere cool. (Or, you know, not include anyone else — you do you.)
Another reason to elope? Even when you consider the potential travel costs, it can be much cheaper than a regular wedding because the guest list is shorter, or nonexistent. Hotels and resorts have caught on to elopement fever, and many properties around the world are offering elopement packages that include an officiant, photographer, cake, and more.
