Should you elope or should you have a larger, “traditional” wedding around Austin?
I get asked this question a lot. And I am totally happy to answer it for you!
Truly, this depends on two things. Your personality & your budget. Because if you aren’t doing a traditional wedding with 100+ guests, you can save a LOT of money. And when you save all that money from not having to book a huge resort, feed hundreds of people, and decorate that super large space – you can put more money into specific vendors (like your dream photographer, videographer, location) and your honeymoon. And what I’ve seen fairly often is that couples still have so much money left over that they are putting that savings into even buying their first house together.
But that big southern wedding can be a heck of a lot of FUN! All that energy, all those people, and all the bells & whistles & garlands to go along with it. They can be such an amazing time.
Bottom line, there’s no wrong path. There’s not one idea that is better than the other. They’re both beautiful in their own unique way.
Just remember to stick to your own plans – your own wedding dreams. After all, it’s your wedding day. Do it the way you want.
