A lot of people had to postpone their weddings last year. And I guess that extra time gave them a chance to say, "Wait, it's going to cost HOW MUCH?"
According to Google Trends, more people are looking to ELOPE right now than ever before. So even though big weddings might be possible again, a lot of people are taking the cheaper route.
Searches for the word "elopement" spiked last summer too, when the pandemic was in full swing. But now it's at an all-time high.
