HOW TO ELOPE
YOUR GUIDE TO YOUR INTIMATE WEDDING EXPERIENCE
A NOTE FROM ME
Hey you two! I can't tell you how excited I am that you and your partner have decided to throw tradition to the wind, grab hold of what's important to both of you, and create an incredibly unique wedding experience that's a true reflection of who you are.
There aren't many couples brave enough to follow their hearts instead of following the "rules," so, I'll just say it outright -- congrats on being pretty badass.
The most amazing thing about choosing to elope is that you can forget all expectations, opinions, and obligations about what you're "supposed" to do, and instead focus entirely on what matters to you two, with nothing holding you back.
All of this freedom can be a bit overwhelming though. When there's no longer any "rules" or "formula" on what you're wedding is "supposed" to be, then how do you go about planning it?
That's where me and this guide come in -- to help make the process of dreaming and planning your unique wedding day as simple and stress-free as possible.
I'm here for you every step of the way! So sit back, relax, and enjoy the process of creating a wedding experience you'll love every minute of.
I can't wait to get to know you two better and help you create an incredible elopement day!
HOW THIS WORKS
SIX STEPS TO PLANNING YOUR ELOPEMENT
Just like there's not just one way to elope, there's also not just one way to plan an elopement. So while these are generally the steps to follow,
it's not always a linear process. And if you need help and advice along the way, I'm here for you! (Click on each section's title to jump to the page!)
DREAM UP YOUR BEST DAY
The first step in any great creative process is to dream & brainstorm. This is where you and your partner explore all of the possibilities of what your day could look like -- without being hindered by details or logistics yet.
MAKE THE BIG DECISIONS FIRST
Once you have an overall vision for what you two want out of your day, it's time to make the biggest decisions that will affect your elopement experience the most: who are you inviting, where are you going, and how long you're going for.
PLAN OUT THE DETAILS
The next step is plan out all of your details for your day including booking your travel and a place to stay, choosing your vendors, deciding on activities, picking out your wedding day attire, and gathering any other items or gear you may need.
CRAFT YOUR TIMELINE
Once you have all of the details decided, it's time to put your vision all together and create a timeline for your elopement or intimate wedding day (or multiple days) that fits everything you want to experience.
GET READY TO GO
Now the planning is done and you just need to gather everything you need, pack for your trip, make sure you communicate with your guests (if you have any), and get ready to have an amazing day!
HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER
You did it! Your day is here! Relax and soak in every moment and be fully present with your partner. Enjoy the incredible experience you created together as you say your vows and commit your lives to each other.
