Are you in the midst of wedding planning and considering eloping instead? Or perhaps you’ve always wanted a small, intimate wedding but are surprised by the cost. Maybe eloping to Malta! This post is packed with valuable insights and real case studies to help you determine your elopement budget.
Many couples choose elopements as a way to save money on their wedding. However, it’s essential to understand that the cost of your elopement is determined more by the experience you desire rather than the number of guests.
Allocating your elopement budget differs significantly from a traditional wedding budget. Typically, around 50% of a big wedding budget is dedicated to venue and catering, 10% to a planner, and 5% each to other significant vendors such as a photographer, DJ, florist, and attire. The remaining 20% covers incidentals like invitations and favors.
While full-on elopement planners are not commonly hired, they can be a lifesaver for couples looking to have a specific type of elopement, especially if it involves traveling. These experienced planners take on many tasks, saving you time and reducing stress during the planning process.
Introducing elopements and intimate weddings, there are a few key elements that I believe shouldn’t be overlooked. While a small cake cutting and champagne toast may not seem significant to everyone, I feel that incorporating these main aspects of larger weddings on a smaller scale adds a special touch. It ensures that people don’t feel like they’re missing out on the grandeur of a big wedding.
