Hawaii Weddings | Reasons to Elope

Elopements have come a long way over the years! They are no longer about running away in secret. They’re about celebrating your day in a unique way! While we love Hawaii weddings (Alana officiates those, too!) at Wild & Free, we specialize in the untraditional days. If you’re thinking about having a “just the two of us” day, this blog is for you! We are breaking down some of the top reasons why you should elope!

Save money without sacrificing quality

The average prices of Hawaii weddings are between $30k – $40k. When you elope, you can save on so many extras and put your money where you value it the most: Creating an experience that focuses on the two of you. When you book with us for both your officiating and photography, you’re looking at a $1800 starting rate, which already covers your ceremony for less than the cost of a venue. That doesn’t mean you can’t have traditional elements of a wedding day, so we love helping you complete your day with our preferred vendors list!


Have a stress free day

There’s no doubt that planning a wedding can be stressful! A lot of the time, the stress comes from external sources. Maybe it’s a friend or family member tossing out an idea that you don’t particularly like but feel pressure to include in your day. When you elope, you can throw all expectations out the window and ensure that you are creating a day focused on what is the most important to you and your partner.

You can focus on each other… and be Wild & Free!

If you’re having a large wedding, you could find yourself so preoccupied with others that you don’t get a chance to slow down and enjoy the moment with your partner. Eloping means you can truly be in the moment and enjoy the time together. It also opens up the opportunity to have more of an adventure. That could be going on a hike, or spending the end of your photo session with a jump into the ocean!

The opportunities when you elope are endless! We’d love to help you plan your perfect day. Contact us today to book your Hawaii elopement!
