Webster's defines elopement as running away to get married without parental consent. Times change and so do expectations. Elopement ceremonies, especially destination elopements, are very popular with today's couples given the expense and complexity of a large wedding and reception. Add to that the need for a few weeks of honeymoon to adjust to your new life and you can easily see how a destination elopement begins to make sense. You can always have a party when you get back home and you'll be more relaxed and able to enjoy the festivities without all the hoopla.
