THIS IS A SPECIAL TIME IN YOUR LIFE
A PANDEMIC CAN NEVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU
Do any of these apply to your current situation?
1.) You're engaged, but don't feel comfortable booking venues and setting dates.
2.) You've booked a venue and have a date, but are concerned you'll need to reschedule or change your plans.
3.) You've already cancelled or postponed your wedding... but are still dying to get married.
4.) You're not engaged just yet because you're concerned about planning a wedding right now.
5.) You've always thought about eloping somewhere crazy.
So Let's Plan Something Special!
YOU STILL HAVE OPTIONS... AND GOOD ONES TOO!
1.) ELOPE NOW, JUST YOU TWO
Go on an adventure with your partner that you'll never forget! No COVID, no drama and no waiting for over a year. Get married THIS YEAR. If you want, you can still have your dream wedding in 2021 or 2022. Loved ones all gathered together, a rocking party and all the fun you've always envisioned. If you aren't into that, no problem, you still get to elope somewhere incredible!
2.) ELOPE NOW, WITH SOME LOVED ONES
It's the same as above, just add a few guests. Yes, you absolutely can! Mini weddings with 10-15 loved ones are becoming very very popular for good reason. If you keep your guests to under 15, you have more options for where you can go and are also avoiding a large gathering. Bring an officiant or have a loved one ordained online (that's all the rage now!).
If you're considering Option #2 with guests...
IS GONNA BE AWESOME
Loved Ones Included? YASSS!
Legal Ceremony? YASSS!
Getting Ready? YASSS!
Some Reception Stuff? YASSS!
Wedding Dress? YASSS!
Bomb Pictures? YASSS!
YASSS to them all!
You can incorporate so much meaning into your elopement. Get dressed up and bring flowers! Include up to 15 special guests and get pictures with them! You can bring your pets! Get legally married and write vows to each other! Go on an adventure to somewhere epic! Include other traditional wedding elements like getting ready, cutting a cake, first dances. You can socially distance outside and ad enchanting twinkle lights!
READY FOR SOME INSPIRATION!?
Here's just one way to have an incredibly beautiful
and meaningful elopement wedding day.
The wedding timeline draft below is for our fictitious couple, Summer & Chris.
They're planning a larger wedding for fall 2021 at a venue with 150 guests, but didn't want until then to get married. Ever since COVID started, they've been rearranging their plans and just don't want to wait any longer. So they are eloping with 15 of their closest loved ones to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and having a small outdoor reception nearby directly afterward. They rented an AirBnB for the reception and for getting ready. Summer's bestie from college, Emily, got ordained online to marry them! They have elected not to have a first look, but did want to incorporate some first touches and love letters to each other before the ceremony. Cute eh!?
