malayna : Very jealous of your friend! How wonderful to have a connection in Tuscany! 🙂 You are going to have a wonderful time!
We knew coming in we would be paying a premium for location, we were able to get a great deal on airfare and have scouted our some great deals for hotels/Airbnb. We are okay spending money on making it a memorable day for the two of us in lieu of a big wedding, hopefully after more research we are able to find more reasonable vendors or packages! 🙂

I actually found mine by searching Paris Photographers on instagram… I found 4 services I liked and went with the one that provided what I wanted & had the best photos.

My fiancé and I are planning an elopement in Colorado for April 2019 and making it a family vacation for 4-5 days. We’re also paying it ourselves so we budgeted around $3,500 for everything including the Airbnb everyone will be staying at.
We were lucky enough to find an AMAZING company that included officiant, photographer, videographer, and permits needed all under $2k! I’m doing my own makeup and my sister in law is going my hair. My maid of honor’s family actually has a timeshare in Vail which they said we could use for our wedding night which we are so so grateful for.
I love the idea of planning out an elopement, to me it just makes it so much more special. Congrats!

I voted £11,000 + but that is including the honeymoon
we are going to Vegas from the UK. The wedding package itself is about £800, that is ceremony, photos, transport, flowers, hair and make up, tips/fees etc.
if you then add in flights and accommodation, (just for the wedding week itself) it is £7000 because we booked more extravagantly than we normally would with it being the wedding (upgraded flights, suite instead of a room etc).
we are staying in the US for 3 weeks total to have the honeymoon at the same time, so all in (with rings, dress, suit, with a party in the UK after) it’s looking at about £12,000. A friend of ours has spent £25,000 on the wedding day alone so we consider this a bargain!!

We just eloped in Ravello, Italy in September! It was the best decision we ever made. Feel free to check out some of my photos on IG if you have an account. My handle on there is @cocodominique. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. We did not use a planner. If it is just the two of you it can totally be done without using one.
