  1. Witnesses to your story

Invite people who have played a significant role in your relationship and have witnessed your journey of love. This could include close friends, family members, or even mentors who have had an impact on your love life. As they have witnessed the beginning of your love story this will complete the circle if they witness your marriage engagement.

  1. People contributing to the elopement

If you have vendors or professionals playing a key role in realizing your elopement (photographer, officiant, etc.), their presence can be meaningful. Make sure to discuss this with them in advance. But don’t feel you have to invite them. Sharing a glass of champagne can also work. The idea is to share a moment together if you feel like you ant it.

  1. Choose intimacy if it’s your preference

One of the advantages of elopement is the ability to create a very intimate moment between you and your partner. If you prefer a ceremony without guests, feel free to choose this option. Elopement gives you the freedom to create the ceremony that best suits your desires.
