- Wedding: April 2013
This is my first post, so I’m so delighted to be here! I am currently planning an elopement in Paris, France in April of this year. I received a lot of helpful tips from this site, so my hope is all you lovely bees can help me with my current situation. AND of course I’d be happy to lend any advice about planning a destination elopement in Paris, France. I’m doing it all on my own, so no wedding planner. I still have some items to finalize, but as far as photographer, location, hair, make-up, floral, etc. i can definitely help.
My fiance and I are obssessed with movies, so the day following our ceremony we have a photo-shoot scheduled to recreate some iconic classic movies (Funny Face and Casablanca) based in Paris. Of course I picked the iconic Audrey balloon image from Funny Face infront of the Arc De Triomphe. Since its a popular toursit spot my photographer thinks its best we do the shoot early in the morning before the place gets completely crowded. We are thinking 7:30am. So I am faced with two questions: 1) Do you know of a party retailer that sells balloons near Arc De Triomphe? My fiance and I won’t have a car rental this day, so walking distance is preferred. I live in NYC, so something around a mile is still considered close for us 🙂 2) Do you think they’ll be open early enough for a pick-up around 7am?
Once again, so excited to be here! Any information would be much much appreciated!
