Woudl you be able to book a wedding package somewhere?  Some hotels have wedding packages and it includes the officiant.  Not sure where you live, but perhaps that would be an option?

Whatever you decide, make sure you get a marriage license in advance.  I don’t know about other places, but in NY there needs to be 24 hours between getting the license and getting married.

Do you have time for a road trip or a flight?  You could travel someplace and make a weekend of it.

When we went to get our marriage license at City Hall in Manhattan, there were a lot of people getting married there.  It looked pretty fun and festive, and if you were to come to NYC then there’d be plenty of restaurants and other places where you could celebrate appropriately afterwards.

Is your family around?  Maybe you could invite your immediate family and then go out for dinner together afterwards.

In NC, technically only magistrates and religious officiants can conduct a ceremony, from my research. The bonus is you can go in and get your license in any county and get married right away if it’s during the hours they perform weddings- no waiting periods like in some other states.

Depending where you are in the state you might find an inn/b&b that has an elopement package. On the Outer Banks, there’s the Sanderling, which may or may not include the officiant. I think someone on here may have eloped in Asheville at an inn…

@pinkcrush:  You can do something at a beach, in a park, a hotel, a B&B (that’s most likely what I’m going to do), and since you are in NC, there are plenty of beautiful things near u. If time is kind, you can fly somewhere close and get married there. Don’t worry, you will find something nice no matter what you do! Congratulations

Also, you’re still having the big to-do next October so nothing is lost! 🙂
