The odd, new meaning of "elopement."

This discouraging article talks about the trend of couples (often already massively in debt from student loans etc.) taking out huge loans to pay for their weddings. In reading it, I learned that “elopement” now means “getting married without a $30,000 theatrical production.” At one time it referred to a couple running away together because their parents didn’t support their getting married. Now you can invite your parents to your “elopement” at City Hall.
