The Updated Guide to Eloping in 2020

Eloping is often used to refer to a marriage ceremony conducted in a sudden and secretive fashion. They used to be a hurried flight away together with one’s beloved to get married. The idea was to get married before the family found out and put a stop to the nuptials. In these days of a global pandemic, elopements are becoming necessary for couples looking to tie the knot. However, unlike the elopements of centuries past, the reason for eloping is very different. In 2020, together with social distancing, high-risk relations, rules for gatherings, limited travel, and safety, wedding planning can feel impossible. As a result, elopements are more popular than ever and no longer rushed, private affairs. We have some tips for planning your modern elopement to make it a thoroughly modern affair.

Use Some Dramatic Decor Flourishes 

Just because you are eloping doesn’t mean you need to give up decorating for your special day. You can still have your favorite flowers. Create a dramatic ceremony with flower petals. Get crazy with candlelight. Create a romantic ambiance for you and your partner. Just because you do not have a big wedding does not mean you shouldn’t create your dream ceremony decor. The nice thing is, you can to surround yourself with what makes you happy.

Wear What You Want

You are eloping with your beloved, wear what you want! The fun part of eloping is the absence of wedding traditions that some brides find stifling. Does wearing white wash you out or make you uncomfortable? Wear whatever you want for your elopement. You decide the ceremony’s formalness, and you can determine what is appropriate to wear on your special day.

Go As Formal or As Casual As You Want

Eloping, without having a crowded event affords you the luxury of deciding how formal or casual the event will be. Suppose you have never worn a dress in your life and don’t want to start now-don’t wear a dress. You can write your own rules for an elopement. Be comfortable and have fun are the only guidelines. Still want to hire makeup and hair professionals to create that look-do it! Bring your dog to the ceremony, go barefoot, it’s your special day. Check with your venue and then go for it!

Indulge In a Good Bottle of Bubbly

You are eloping, but don’t forget the special touches to celebrate the event. Celebrate with a nice bottle of champagne, a special meal, and a special gift for your partner. Get a special nighty or some silk boxers. In other words, make every facet of the event unforgettable and extraordinary.

We Specialize in All-Inclusive

At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent.  There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding.  These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
