How do you announce that you are eloping?
Choosing to elope is not always an easy decision for many reasons out of our control. You made the decision to make the day intentionally about you and your partner and came to the conclusion that eloping was the best thing for you. Announcing you elopement can be a scary thought, especially when you think you may feel backlash from your loved ones.
Do it when you are ready.
Feeling ready to have this conversation with your loved ones is a must. Wait until you feel it is the right time!
Be prepared with the right words.
Being prepared with what you want to say and how you want to approach the conversation is super helpful. Having an explanation of why it was important for you to elope and sympathizing with your loved ones because they couldn’t be there! And nor all elopements are just the couple some include family too!
When should you send your elopement announcement?
Whenever you are ready! Once you have eloped it is your choice when you want to share it to the world. If you want to tell everyone right away, sharing on social media is definitely the fastest but maybe you want to do something more special that might take more time to put together.
