This entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime.
When you are looking for a memorable wedding that doesn’t cost a fortune, eloping may be the economical and romantic choice. When you elope in Niagara you choose the size of your event, the venue, and the amenities at the price you want to pay.
Here are five of the top reasons to elope to Niagara.
5 Reasons to Elope in Niagara
1. Location, Location, Location
In Niagara Falls Canada, beauty and romance surround you everywhere with SO much to do: wineries, ziplining, hiking, dinner and lunch cruises, bicycle and Segway rentals. Feeling adventurous? There are so many rides to choose from: horse n carriage, helicopter, jetboat, an areocar over the rapids and 175-foot high skywheel, antique car and limo tours.
There are museums, arcades, nightclubs, theatres, casinos, the famous festival of lights, and of course romantic walks and views, and enjoy fireworks displays over the falls in the evening. We are surrounded by 2 lakes, historic forts, mouth watering cuisine, artisans and really cool gift shops. Niagara has it all year round!
2. You Make the Rules!
When you elope, there is no one to please but yourselves. No cake? No worries, you didn’t want a cake anyway. No reception with favours? Nope, you didn’t want to buy favours or worry about booking a venue and try to please everyone (which is virtually impossible). When you elope, you can literally wing it, eat wherever and whenever you feel like, and do whatever you wish on your day. Create your own intimate wedding memories and spend the day on your own agenda. Say “I do” and then go hiking, or do a wine tour or wander around in the magnificently groomed parks around the falls.
3. Less Stress
NO stress or family drama! No divorced parents to worry about! Avoid religious and cultural clashes! Eloping eliminates all the disagreements on things like colors, style, venue choices, food choices, who’s doing what, who’s in your wedding party, who’s on the guest list, ceremony style, parents that don’t talk, and that’s just the beginning! Eloping is the solution to avoid all of the stress and worry that planning a big event can create.
4. Save your money!
Why go into debt at the start of your life together? The average cost of a wedding is $30,000.00, which could be well better spent in any kind of investment including a house purchase. It’s best to have no wedding regret: ask any couple who are still making payments on their wedding loan 5 years after if they wish they would have eloped. Enjoy a romantic intimate ceremony, a fabulous honeymoon and not bear the heavy burden of debt for years to come.
5. It’s Your Secret
It’s fun to keep it a secret! “It’s better to ask for forgiveness than permission” is a great motto and there are so many fun ways to announce to everyone that you eloped. Planning such an intrigue is so romantic and charming. It’s just you and your lover. The only two2 involved in the “secret” and it’s such a special and exciting secret too! Those who are upset about the elopement will get over it, and if anyone wishes to plan and pay for an extravagant gathering afterwards then all you have to do is show up! Couples have announced they got married with surprise social media posts, photos and videos to rave reviews and excitement from family and friends.
