Why is there such a big price difference between a wedding and an elopement?

A huge reason why we designate our ceremonies as twenty guests or less is because we definitely want your clan to be in attendance (should you desire them to be). But once you have more than 20 people, you really start needing infrastructure. Larger groups begin to require things like chairs, ample parking, multiple bathrooms, etc. At that point, you really need a venue that can support larger groups, which is where the cost really begins to add up. Not to mention, it requires more and more vendors to manage larger groups.

While an elopement costs $1,000 to $5,000, the average cost of a wedding in the US is $35,000. That’s a big difference! We highly encourage you to ascertain what’s the best route for you!
