1. How much of your deposit for your venue will you get back?

2. How much would your airfare be?

3. How much would staying in hotels be?

If you want Paris, you’re not going to be married in a chateau.  I would start googling things like “Paris wedding venue intimate” or “french chateau wedding venue intimate” and see what you find…and when you find something you LOVE, see what you need to get married there!

I am jealous.  =)

I did do this. Here’s my thread with tips:

Tips for Eloping to Paris

The pp is right. There are no chateaux to use in Paris. The churches are usually catholic and you would need to be catholic to marry in one. some places require a wedding planner to book for you.

I don’t have any helpful advise (sorry!), but that sounds so very romantic – running away to Paris with your love! My Fiance and I wish we would have done something like that, esp as the day gets closer. Can’t wait to hear all about it, if thats what you two choose to do. 🙂

I’ve been to Paris but don’t know anything about the “rules.” But would it be possible to get married on the grounds of the church..say, outside of Notre Dame?

Or even on one of the bridges over the Sienne where all of the Love Locks are…that would be pretty awesome too!

Just an FYI, as I suspect MrsElopement mentions in her main post about this, you can’t legally get married in France – you have to reside there 40 days prior the ceremony to be legally married there. So you’ll have to get married at home before or after your trip. Some friends of mine discovered this the hard way when thinking they’d elope while on a European vacation.
