We all know that children learn from watching us. Their imitation of our words, actions, and emotions can sometimes be frustrating, but it’s also a strong motivator for you to be intentional and authentic. Involving them in your elopement plans gives you a chance to show your children what matters most to you – your relationship with your partner, with them, and with our planet. It’s an opportunity to set an example, align your actions with your beliefs, and show your values in a beautiful way. By eloping with your kids you show them that you value experiences over things, and that time spent outdoors with your loved ones is your favorite way to celebrate!
Spending time in nature helps children build confidence, connections and take responsibility.
Eloping itself requires a lot of planning and when including children in your elopement day it takes extra planning, but it is a meaningful way of showing them that you’re truly all in this together! You need to find a safe place for the little ones if eloping out in the wild, but it’s also a great opportunity for your children to connect and explore nature.
There are many ways to elope with kids, even if you choose to step aside at the ceremony to privately share your vows. If you’re a parent and dream about eloping, keep reading this blog post for ideas on how to make it happen!
Have someone there to help you with your kids if you want to have some alone time just the two of you. Ask a close friend or family member to come along and look out for them since you and your partner may not be available 100% of the time.
Be realistic with your expectations and what you want.
BE PREPARED! The best way to ensure everyone is safe, has fun, and doesn’t become overwhelmed is to be prepared for your elopement location and plan. Always have a plan B.
