Elopements are intimate ceremonies that pledge commitment between two individuals and require no external elements. On the other hand, a traditional wedding involves numerous variables that can easily detract from the main focus of two people genuinely connecting and exchanging vows of commitment.  The options are limitless and there is much less stress because you’re doing what you want to do instead of what you think you should do!

Eloping is usually less stressful than having a traditional wedding ceremony

Your wedding day is all about you. However, it’s common for family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers to offer their unsolicited opinions. It can quickly become overwhelming trying to please everyone, which is the last thing you want on the biggest day of your life. By eloping with Beachside Weddings, you can enjoy a simple, modern, and beautiful elopement on the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches without any stress. This allows you to start your new life with simplicity and personal meaning, because you deserve it!


Eloping can be a more personal and convenient option when compared to a traditional wedding. The main advantage of eloping is that you have no limitations whatsoever. You can choose your preferred location, vows, and even attire to fully customize your elopement according to your preferences. It is an ideal choice for couples who prioritize experience over a grand wedding or would rather spend their money more meaningfully. Additionally, you can tie your elopement into your honeymoon and make one big trip out of it. It’s a way to kick-start your travels together, and the options are unlimited!


Weddings can be very expensive. In the Panhandle area, the average cost of a wedding and reception is over $30,000. Almost half of the budget, around 48-50 percent, is typically spent on the reception alone. Eloping could be a cost-saving solution as it eliminates unnecessary expenses that don’t add value to your overall experience. By eloping with Beachside Weddings, you can prioritize your spending based on what’s important to you. You can reduce unnecessary expenses like party favors and focus your time and energy on yourselves.


Having a seasoned, professional wedding planner by your side is an asset for your wedding day ceremony. However, some of the nitty-gritty details that don’t involve your planner can be stressful, especially if you have a large family and friend circle to accommodate (look, we’ve all got relatives who are difficult. Uncle Eddie, anyone?). But it’s important to remember that you deserve a celebration of love that reflects who you are as a couple and reflect your unique personalities and preferences. By eloping, you get to play by your own rules and create a day that truly feels authentic. You can even include a few close friends and family members if you wish. Whether you choose to elope alone or with a small group of loved ones, you’ll have the freedom to create the day you’ve always dreamed of. So go ahead and give yourself permission to make your wedding day truly yours, and contact Beachside Weddings today!
