What We Include in Our Elopement Packages
Here is what we offer in our elopement wedding packages for couples:
1. Understanding Your Elopement Budget
When putting together your elopement package, one of the most important things to be prepared for is understanding how much an elopement costs. All elopements are different and can vary greatly in price. On average, we have seen elopements cost anywhere from $2,000 to $15,000. It all depends on what the couple decides to do on their elopement day. Our members are the perfect vendors for your elopement to help guide you on how should allocate your budget.
2. Tips from Photographers and Couples
We know how stressful it is to make decisions on your wedding day, even if you are planning an elopement. We provide multiple elopement stories for our couples to read to gather inspiration and ideas around what type of adventure elopement and style they would want on their special day.
3. Best Places to Elope
If you decided to elope, then we have to include the best places to elope in your elopement package. The world is a big place, so we did all the heavy research for you. Our elopement location inspiration is filled with multiple places depending on the type of adventure you both are looking for. We have put together everything from mountain elopement destinations to desert locations.
4. Awesome Vendors for Your Elopement Package
These vendors are also a great point of reference to figure out the cost to elope in the area they are interested in. Even though the cost to elope is more affordable than a traditional wedding, it is still something couples need to be prepared for. They are also great resources to tell you what permits you’ll need during your elopement and what you’ll need to bring to your elopement destination.
We have multiple vendors including, elopement photographers, elopement planners, officiants, and more to help get your elopement wedding plans started.
5. Support and Guidance During Your Adventure Elopement
We love our couples who decide to elope, and we encourage you to ask us any questions you have regarding your wedding day. These questions can be anything ranging from the cost of eloping to more information on planning an elopement at a specific location within or outside the U.S.
What Is An Adventure Elopement?
The definition of what an elopement is has changed drastically and has gained more and more popularity with people just like you, adventurers.
An adventure elopement is planning your wedding day wherever and however, you want. These types of elopements are on islands, national parks, caves… Couples do outdoor activities they love such as hiking, skiing, and swimming together.
These elopements also strip away the extra stuff, the fluff, and the details that many brides and grooms don’t even notice on their special day. This also means that the cost to elope is significantly less expensive.
Usually, elopements include the couple, elopement photographer, officiant, and whatever small group of family and friends they both may want to include. Remember, this day is intentionally intimate, small, and meaningful to reflect who you both are.
If you’re freaking out about who you should include during your wedding day, then don’t! Even though elopements are traditionally just the couple and their vendors, that doesn’t mean you can’t invite a small group with you. Check out our micro wedding guide to inspire you!
