This smaller, intimate ceremony gives them the possibility to focus on each other and emphasize their true selves. That means less family drama, fewer expectations, and way more intimacy, and “only the two of you” moments.

In the end, your wedding day is all about the two of you. Nothing else is anywhere near as important.

what means to elope

Have you ever heard about a couple leaving their home without telling anyone and secretly getting married far away? 

That’s what most of us will consider as an elopement.

Traditionally, we refer the term “elopement” to “the act of leaving home secretly in order to get married”. (Definition of elopement from the Cambridge Advanced Learner’s Dictionary & Thesaurus).

The secrecy is the key!

to elope meaning

Surprisingly, elopement has transformed over the years. Modern-day eloping doesn’t have to come with any shame or embarrassment. What used to mean “to run away and secretly getting married” now become a sort of small destination wedding. It allows the couple to invite only the most important people in their life and avoid big, exaggerated celebration.

According to Harper’s Baazar ,modern elopement “is about running away from an event that feels archaic to many and uncomfortable for others”. In fact, elopement usually means a marriage with 10 or fewer people which makes it more personal, intimate, and extremely romantic.

“Eloping completely takes off the pressure of planning the perfect wedding,'” said Harper’s Bazaar social media editor and newly-engaged Natalie Salmon. “Weddings – thanks in part to social media, and Instagram certainly comes to mind here – are so much more visible than they were in the past. It’s not just your friends and family who will see it; even people you haven’t even invited might be watching.”

Furthermore, modern-day eloping is more and more common practice. During COVID-19 an increasing number of couples decide to pursue the route of elopements to legalize their marriage despite the restrictions. By eloping, they can stick to their original wedding date and make it official with far fewer guests.

Origin of Elope – What does Elopement Means?

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the earliest use of the word “elope” was in the 14th century. It meant “leap”, so just to “run away”. The “running away to get married” sense of eloping was popularized in the 17th century. The word was used to describe a woman running away from her husband with her lover. With time the word was evolving. It meant tying the knot in secrecy or out of shame away from the family, usually as a last-minute decision.

Nowadays, eloping is just another way of getting married. It’s an intimate wedding that is focused entirely on the couple and it’s no less special than a traditional celebration.

Eloping is an amazing alternative for what we used to consider as a wedding day, sometimes too overwhelming and not exactly in the couple’s style. Deciding to elope gives the couple plenty of possibilities to build an experience that feels authentic to them and reflects their personality. Whether they like an adventure, or prefere a luxury celebration, an elopement marriage can be whatever they want it to be and wherever they can imagine it.

New wedding season is around the corner which means new wedding dress trends of 2021! Like everything, fashion changes every year and is influenced by different factors. Some of the recent wedding trends are small and intimate weddings that take place in new types of locations like gardens, private villas, or backyards. A wedding dress worn for this type of occasion will look different from the wedding of the past.

Long months of lockdown, now brides have become more experimental and courageous in their wedding choices. Samantha Iacia from WeddingWire says that in 2021 “Brides and to-be-weds are ditching the idea that you can only wear certain types of dresses in certain settings.”

2021 will be all about statement sleeves, backs, bows pastels and sparkling details. But the biggest dress trend of 2021 is “anything goes”, which means that brides are ditching the traditional white ballgown and opt for colors and different silhouettes.

The choice of the wedding dress is an important moment of the wedding. To help you, we have prepared the guide of the 2021 wedding dress trends you should know.

Less-formal “micro wedding dresses” are having their moment in 2021

The surge of smaller wedding ceremonies and elopements means shorter dresses and less formal styles are trending in 2021. A more casual and personal vibe will be observed during wedding ceremonies and “little white dress” has a chance to be almost as popular as little black dress. This type of wedding dress will be less dramatic and a lot more fitted for intimate ceremonies and low-key venues.

Bridal jumpsuits and pantsuits are a new wedding  dress trend of 2021

2021 wedding wardrobe will extend beyond wedding events. Brides are opting for more unique and flexible pieces that can be mixed and match during future events. A bridal jumpsuit as a dress alternative is comfortable and totally stylish. It was trending before 2002 but now it’s getting more popular than ever. Lace, bigger weaves and shimmering fabric jumpsuits are a perfect opportunity for many brides to show their personality and not follow the herd.

Puffy sleeves make a statement in 2021

The ’80 are making their comeback on wedding ceremonies in 2021. Bridal gown designers are mixing retro elements with modern style.  Big, puffy, dramatic sleeves will be the favorite detail of wedding dresses. They will give a “wow-factor” to every, even the most simple gown. If you are thinking about a poetic or romantic look, big sleeves will be the best option.

Backless wedding gowns are trendy in 2021

Transformative dresses for multiple looks

2021 wedding dress trends are all about versatility and adaptability. Transformative gowns allow brides to get more than one use out of the same dress. Those transformative options can be worn in multiple ways and can be adapted to a different ceremony type. This can be very helpful in case of postponed weddings or a change of wedding reception venue.

Subtle Sparkle is big 2021 trend

Harper’s Bazaar says “Shimmer never looked so chic. This subtle shine that catches the light feels more like a night sky than all-encrusted, glamorous glitz.” Délicat shimmer in the form of glitter tulle adds an ethereal touch to your wedding gown. This trend will make everybody’s head turn toward you!

Outdoor Wedding Tents

Accordingly, wedding tents are the perfect complement for garden weddings, but also form a unique shelter for your guests in case of bad weather. What’s important, the forms and decor options are practically limitless, depending on your needs. Specifically, the most popular styles are freestanding tents set up on frames, sailcloth and pole tents, tents with sidewalls or plastic, transparent ones. While arranging the interior we love adding some natural components from the garden like stunning overhead floral installations, hanging flowers, natural light coming from candles. Do you want more? What about bringing trees INSIDE your tent? Immediately, magic atmosphere guaranteed.

Garden Wedding Decorations on a Big Scale

Briefly, there is no such thing as too much flora, especially when we talk about having a garden wedding. Floral accents can sneak literally everywhere – from the backdrop to paths, entrance, tent interior, or tables, chairs, centerpieces, up to the wedding cake, invitations, or your romantic wreath! Don’t be afraid to use, besides flowers, also other foliage like leaves, succulents, or garlands.

Outdoor Wedding Fun

Currently garden weddings give a lot of possibilities for funny games and fancy installations. We propose bringing out a bar or gelato station and prepare some lawn games. The chill lounge area in the hidden corner of the garden will be a perfect place where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the wedding celebration and spend some time alone with your beloved one. The possibilities are endless!

A huge thing to take note of when planning a wedding in a short amount of time is to take an idea and run with it. You’ll notice that one idea will lead to another, and then shortly you will have planned a full wedding day.

OPEN-MINDED

Often times we have a bride who wants to plan a wedding exactly the way she sees on Pinterest. As most of us know, sometimes it is hard to recreate exactly what she saw on the app, but we do our best. Say she sees an organic wedding arch decked with greenery and draping. We all know that one leaf is different from the next, so when recreating a vision and you think something else will work better, then follow your gut and just do it.

The best part about planning a wedding in short notice of time is seeing all of the amazing things that can transpire. We start to get creative, host a ceremony in a foreign building, make new connections with vendors we would have never met, and overall host a wonderful wedding. Stay positive, and know that you just have to keep moving.

THE WEDDING DRESS – SO MUCH MORE THAN A DRESS

It’s no secret that your wedding dress is possibly the highlight of your special day.  If you have been searching for your ultimate wedding dress, you will already know that there are literally thousands to choose from.

With so many to choose from it can be very difficult to decide on that one particular dress that says what you need it to. It must speak to you of the exact vision you have of how you want to look on the day.

Whether your budget is small or large, your ideal dress is still an investment in possibly the most important day of your life. And when you look back on your wedding album and relive some of those precious moments, you will know your dress was the one!

Each and every detail is crucial to create the exact image of how you want to look and to feel.  Everything matters. The fabric, the style, classically simple or over-the-top ornate. Whether there is any beading or lace or ruffles. Whether it is off the shoulder or has shoestring straps. Deep backed or high backed, figure hugging or with a full or trailing skirt. All these factors count when you make your final choice.

Think if your wedding is to be indoors or at a venue with smoother surfaces for you to walk on. Then an elaborate design will be much easier to wear and enjoy on the day.  The season may also need to be considered. Although not all brides care about the temperature if their dress is everything they have dreamed of! 

We hope you thoroughly enjoy indulging yourself in the journey of choosing your perfect wedding dress! Especially picturing yourself as the bride that not only draws ‘Oohs and Ahhs’ from your guests, but one that you will remember with joy and a special sentimentality that only brides know.  Relax, take your time and have fun!
