Intimate Wedding Elopement Ideas
With a growing number of couples opting for a more intimate wedding these days, the demand for elopement ideas is increasing! In the past, eloping meant sneaking off to the courthouse for a basic wedding ceremony, but how times have changed! As elopement becomes the new normal, couples are looking for ways to make their elopement ceremonies more elaborate and memorable.
Gone are the days when the only two elopement options available were a Vegas wedding or a courthouse ceremony. That’s why we have put together some of our favorite intimate wedding and elopement ideas to inspire you!
3 Elopement Ideas to Consider
1 – Choose a Stunning Location
The great thing about having a more intimate wedding is that the smaller size makes many venues more accessible. Why not make your day special by choosing a truly spectacular location? Eloping allows you to get married virtually anywhere – even if it is not a traditional wedding venue. Why not exchange vows on a secluded private beach? Get married on a mountaintop? You could even tie the knot deep in a tranquil forest. The choice is yours!
2 – Go All Out With Your Attire
Eloping certainly does not mean having to give up your dream wedding dress. In fact, you can wear whatever you like! That could mean casual clothes or a bold color choice, or it could mean a traditional big white wedding dress! Your wedding day should be all about you and when you elope that focus is even stronger. We urge you to go all out with your attire, if that’s what you want to do, regardless of whether you have 2 guests or 20!
3 – Create Cute Photo Announcements
One of the big factors in having an elopement or intimate wedding is that your guest list is going to be limited. You may not necessarily have just you and your partner, but the chances are fair that if you do have guests it is only going to be your nearest and dearest friends and family. That means you need to make an announcement to everyone else. One of the most popular elopement ideas we have seen recently is to share a cute announcement wedding photo online. Not only does this share your news but it lets those who couldn’t attend get a glimpse of your special day!
