Deciding to get married is easily one of the biggest decisions of your life. It's almost assumed that everyone is going to want a big extravagant wedding, but what if you don't? Is it fair to pressure the happy couple into having a big wedding simply because that's what everyone else wants and expects?
Society often does this, where they force their social norms onto people, and everyone ends up getting sucked into them. What if you don't like what society expects of you? What if you want to do things a little differently? I don't think it's fair for friends and family to make you feel bad for being different. There are tons of benefits to eloping, but I'll give you my top five.
