Can't cope? Elope!

Admit it. You always thought eloping sounded kind of romantic, right? Too bad everyone expects you to have The Big Wedding -- the kind you always thought you wanted. So now that you're engaged and knee-deep in wedding planning, why are you secretly wishing you could just fly off to a tropical island and say your I do's in your bathing suit?

Well, you can! There are many different ways to elope -- and not all of them involve running off in the middle of the night. These days, "eloping" is anything other than a traditional wedding -- from a steps-of-city-hall ceremony with just the two of you, to a fun-filled "destination wedding" with your family and closest friends.

Let's Elope
is filled with creative ideas for exchanging your vows in a memorable, personalized way that won't necessarily cost you a fortune -- or your sanity. Let's Elope includes:

  • A brief history of weddings -- and why people first began to elope
  • A quiz to help you decide if eloping is right for you
  • Inspiring anecdotes from real-life couples who chose to opt out of a traditional wedding
  • Elopement etiquette, including how to break the news to your family and friends
  • Information on how to plan destination weddings, country weekend weddings, and surprise weddings
  • Up-to-the-minute addresses, phone numbers, and Web sites for the world's top elopement spots
  • Tons of ideas about what to do with all the money you saved!
