To elope or have a traditional wedding… For some that question can be a very, very stressful one!

I have written out my opinion of some pros & cons to eloping vs. have a traditional wedding… Please keep in mind that I ADORE elopements and some of my “pros” may be “cons” to you, or vise-versa! Everyone has their own preferences and visualizations as to what their fairy tale day will look like to them! 🙂 The biggest difference between the two is the cost and number of family & friends attending!
