Ideas for eloping with family and including them in your adventure wedding
Help with planning and preparing
From the day you get engaged, your loved ones can be part of the planning. They can be part of choosing your wedding attire just like with a traditional wedding. There are some special things to take into account when shopping for an elopement wedding dress. Talk to your family about their weddings and find out if there are any special traditions or tokens that meant something special to them.
FaceTime or Skype on the big day
While you might not have cell signal at the ceremony location, with WiFi and cell signal virtually everywhere, you can include your family by having a video chat with them. To have that connection on the day of, to perhaps to share a toast and warm wishes, will mean so much for you and them! It’s almost like you were eloping with your family there!
Throw a party
With COVID around, this isn’t a viable option. However, once it is safe, throwing an engagement party before or a reception party afterward is a great way to include your family. In a traditional wedding, a reception is typically when most loved ones interact with the couple, from sharing a toast and cake to dancing the night away.
