Hi there!  I planned my destination wedding in 15 days!  However, we drove to Canada (it was 15 hours to get there).  We narrowed our choices down to somewhere we could drive because plane tickets would be very expensive at last minute.

I had about 5 dresses in my house already (so I just had to choose, and sell the rest).  I did have to figure out my shoes, hair, jewelry, etc.

We did have to get a suit for H and his ring.

We had a wedding planner come with the elopement package so the little details were taken care of (officiant, flowers, location). 

I booked the photographer and she was free on a Tuesday luckily!


For quick dresses, I would try online places that have a return policy.  Just but a bunch of them and then return what you don’t use!

Panda_pue:  What style dress are you looking for? Most department stores (Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, etc) have long and short dresses in whites and ivories. You may also be able to find a white prom dress or similar.
