  • Wedding: August 2018 - Location

Look up the marriage laws for the region/country you’ll be visiting. You may need to apply for a visa or marriage license in advance. 

Find/book an officiant.

We had a photographer, hair and makeup artists, traditional dress, suit rental, etc. 

Our venue (castle!) had elopement packages that included the ceremony venue, 2 or 3 night stay in a deluxe suite, flowers, champagne, dinner, etc. 

Have fun!!

jayrock :  I second all of this! We used an elopement package as well that was not attached to a venue but it was so helpful and easy. Our included ceremony, paperwork, flowers, and photography. We just had to get the liscence and show up. I hope you have a wonderful elopement!! AND CONGRATULATIONS!

  • Wedding: June 2018

My husband and I eloped last year in the Utah mountains 🙂 We hired a photographer and we were on the fence about hiring a videographer. We ended up doing both and I’m so glad we did! We watch the video way more than we look at the pictures. He dressed in a nice suit and I had a gown and a diy bouquet. We also brought along our dog. We wrote our own vows and I’m super glad we did as it made it all very personal. We married early in the morning so we were able to spend the rest of the day doing whatever the heck we wanted! We stayed a nice hotel with champagne and a balcony hot tub overlooking the mountains. These things made the day special and feel like a “wedding” but at the same time it was a very chill and relaxed day… just the way we wanted it. Congratulations and have fun!

I wish I had eloped and spent even more money on a photographer. Where’s your trip destination?
