You have probably heard the new buzz word "pop-up wedding," but what exactly is it? A pop-up wedding is a quick, easy, and affordable wedding that is all about you and not your guests. You pop in to the wedding venue, get married, and pop out...hence the name. But what is the appeal of a pop-up wedding and is this just a trend or is this the new way to do weddings?

Economical

As wedding costs increase, couples are looking for alternatives to the traditional expensive wedding. With the average cost of a weddings being over $20K, people are opting to save that money for an amazing honeymoon or a down payment on their first home.

Time

People are finding themselves more and more busy these days and taking a year to plan an over-the-top wedding is just not for everyone. You can save yourself umpteen hours of pinning your wedding on Pinterest if you just go with a pop-up wedding.

Stress-Free

If you plan a traditional wedding, you have to find the right venue, officiant, photographer, videographer, florist, table & chair rental company, linen rental company, lighting, DJ, and on and on. If you go with a pop-up wedding, you just have to find a pop-up wedding company that you trust. Most pop-up wedding companies will offer a wedding venue, photographer, bouquet, and officiant making it a one-stop shop for a stress-free wedding.

Individuality

Being an individual is what is in style for this generation. Couple's don't want to have the same cookie-cutter wedding as everyone else had. They want to wear whatever they want, do whatever they want, have bridesmaids, don't have them, etc. With a pop-up wedding you can show up in a red dress with sneakers or a Monique Lhuillier dress and heels and no one would blink an eye.

Weddings Have Gotten Out Of Control

Weddings have just gotten so out of hand featuring photo booths, flash mobs, sequined linen, and chandeliers. With a pop-up wedding, it is just about you, your partner, and the love you share.

Photos

You don't have to give up those stunning wedding photos if you have a pop-up wedding. Photographers are included in most pop-up wedding packages.

Spend Time Together

Unlike at a traditional wedding, at a pop-up wedding you actually get to spend time with your partner because you don't have to "make your rounds" with all of the guests.

Prices of weddings will continue to rise, people will get busier and busier, and the demand for traditional weddings will decline. Pop-up weddings are here to stay and will be seen as a common wedding option in the future.
