Elope In A Great Location, Then Find A Fun Way To Announce It To Family And Friends
We always knew that if we got married, we would elope. So when my girlfriend finally said 'yes', that's just what we did. And like most couples we needed a fun way to announce our news, so we created WeJustEloped.com

The part that we forgot, and I'm sure most people do, is how to break the news afterwards. Of course we knew that we were going to speak to our families, by phone, to tell them. But what we didn't think about was how to show them what a great time we were having and what a great decision we had made. If your mother is anything like mine, she'll be speechless when you tell her. At which point everything you say afterwards is probably lost on her. So I hope you do what we did, and make sure that you can appeal to her remaining senses – she's speechless and not hearing well but still able to see things. Make sure your folks, and everyone you speak to, have a nice place to go and see photos of your special day. We put together a simple, clean, attractive photo album on our very own elopement website called http://www.WeJustEloped.com . This let us get the photos to friends and family while the news was still fresh and real. And the photos were presented in a style that fitted us, in a way that looked good.
The feedback we got back from people was incredible. They could see what an amazing time we had on our wedding, well eloping-day, while we were still enjoying the honeymoon. Anyone that would have even considered being upset by the fact that we had not invited them to a large wedding probably had to question their own motives, since the photos showed it all - we were amazingly happy - and that was all that counted. At that point we could get on with enjoying ourself, not really having to worry about having to tell people.
Couples who would like to announce an elopement in the same way we did should take a look at the website we set up after we settled in to married life at http://www.WeJustEloped.com . You'll still see sample albums and examples of 'eloping announcements' you can use for friends who may just get an email before they get a phone call. While you are there, sign up for your own album, or contribute ideas for great elopements of your own.
Whatever you do when you elope, have an amazing day, in a great location, and announce it in style!
