We've all daydreamed about it. Forgetting the rest of the world, packing our suitcases and escaping to a tropical island or hiding away in a cabin atop the mountains with only our lover for company. The literal meaning of the word "elope" is simply to run away and to never return to the point of origination. Traditionally it was done as a way to bypass disapproving parents or arranged marriages. The modern take on elopement for some still has the same motivating factors of forbidden love but for others its a way to celebrate your love in a more private and intimate way. Eloping isn't for everyone and should be thought through prior to taking the leap just like any wedding but the idea is just so damn romantic though!
Have you ever eloped? If not, would you? Leave a comment I'd love to hear your thoughts on the topic!
