Congrats, you’re engaged! Now what? It’s time to plan your special day, and if you are here, you are probably considering to elope rather than have a traditional wedding. But what does it mean to elope? Do you know how to elope? Some people think of eloping, and their mind instantly thinks of two people running off to the courthouse or Las Vegas without telling anyone. Elopements can actually be far more than that! If you love adventure, romance, and if you’re aiming to have a day just for the two of you, then you have come to the right place!

  4. Create an Inspiration Board
  5. Think About Attire and Details
  6. Do all the Paper Work
