Not all women dreamed of getting married in a church or in a garden, not even in an expensive hotel. Does it mean they are cheap? No. I say, they are just more practical. There is nothing wrong if you want to get married at a city hall. If you saw the movie “Sex In The City,” then you would appreciate my suggestion here. Carrey (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mr. Big got married in the end in a New York City Hall and guess what, that was even more successful and the drama was also less to none.
There is something appealing about eloping like that for some reason. Marriage is about two people who are going to be together for the rest of their lives and their loved ones are mostly just there to support their decision. But at the end of the day, it is the couple that would make all their choices in the lives that they decided to build. So I say, if you feel like going for a city hall to get married then do it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Here are the advantages of doing it elope style.
It is spontaneous. The spontaneity alone can be considered romantic. The spur of the moment would give both of you the adrenaline rush that you need to even keep your passion for each other burning. After all, isn’t that what marriage should do to a couple in the first place?
Fast and easy. You don’t need to wait for almost a year just to tie the knot. You can just march up at the nearest city hall and have everything in legal papers to be with the one you love for the rest of your life. The longest wait you would experience is if there are a lot of people lined up to get married that day, but still it is fast compared to waiting for almost half of the year.
It is no doubt affordable. You don’t need to pay for some huge reception and some rental to get married. You will just need to pay the government for the marriage license fee and you’re done. But okay, if you want to wear some good dress and suit, you can also do that. But seriously, I won’t advise you to wear an expensive designer gown because that would make you look kind of awkward in that place. Just keep your outfits simple and that is actually the beauty of getting married in this venue.
If you have guests who you would want to be witnesses of your wedding, you could still do that. The whole thing would be very quaint and personal, which makes it even more romantic. This is something that any couple could do, especially when they are on a tight budget. But just so you know, not all people who choose this style are broke. Some of them are just really in love and practical.
