Lakeside Weddings & Events Ceremony for Two Q&A
You may feel that planning a wedding for two is not as common, and therefore, need some advice. Weddings where only the bride and groom are present, are actually quite common, but we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Here are some typical questions that have come our way:
1. Will I look out of place if I wear an elegant wedding dress if it’s just the two of us?
Some brides feel that it might be “too much” to wear the beautiful full wedding dress that you often see in mid to large size weddings, if only one other person will be present. This is not true at all! This is your once in a lifetime wedding, a day where you shine and look and feel stunning. Plus, you will want fabulous wedding photos to share with everyone who did not attend. A gorgeous dress will make your wedding photos look outstanding. Lakeside Weddings & Events has been hosting two person ceremonies for years, and 9 times out of 10, the bride is wearing a lovely traditional wedding dress.
2. If just the two of us attend the wedding, is it considered an elopement?
Eloping, in the past, was typically when a couple runs off to get married without the consent of family, especially their parents. During this era, couples were getting married at much younger ages, which adds to the reasons for eloping to avoid any roadblocks from those who may disapprove.
In today’s day and age, the definition of an elopement has changed. Although the previous definition still applies, couples are now also considering a small intimate wedding an elopement. In this version, you can still have the traditional engagement period, extensive planning, but at the same time, just invite a few people, or have it be just the two of you.
3. What are a few advantages of having a Las Vegas wedding for two only?
Every couple has their own reasons for wanting it to just be the two of them on their wedding day, but there are some common themes when it comes to why. Let’s take a look at a few of them:
- You Would Rather Not Be the Center of Attention: If you are one to not like all the attention on you, no matter what the occasion, a wedding just for two may be more your speed. If you plan a wedding with 100 guests, 100 people will be focused on you and your significant other. Just planning on having it be the two of you will allow you to be more relaxed, focus on each other, and enjoy your wedding day.
- Planning a Destination Wedding: If you will be getting married in Las Vegas, but would rather not ask all your guests to drive there and have to make hotel accommodations, then a bride and groom only wedding may be right for you. However, you might just find that your guests would love to plan a trip to Las Vegas. There are fabulous hotels all around, entertaining shows, and fun casinos!
- Saving Your Money: If you’re on a budget and would rather not spend all your savings on a large wedding, it may be wise to not invite guests. This will free up money for other things you have in mind like that must-have, more expensive wedding dress. Or, maybe you want your savings to go towards the down payment of a house, and so on.
