My fiancé and I are planning a small elopement in March to be followed by a bigger celebration later on this fall. We are planning to have a professional photographer for the elopement.  He’s buying a new custom suit, and I’ll be wearing a short dress with fun shoes and will have my hair and makeup done professionally. We plan to celebrate that evening with our parents at a nice restaurant. 

I think we’re doing enough to make the day feel “special” without being over the top. I’d say do what feels right to you! I’m sure it will be lovely

My husband and I eloped last year and I don’t regret it one bit! We got our marriage certificate, booked an officiant, photographer and videographer. We didn’t book a package. We got married in the mountains with just my parents and our dog present. My husband still wore a suit and I wore a gown. The day was perfect for us as it was low key, simple, and focused on what mattered most to us. We stayed at a nice hotel that night and celebrated with our family the next day at brunch. Our day felt special and intimate without all the chaos, stress, and expense. Congratulations and best of luck to you whatever you decide!
