Washington Planners For Your Small Wedding Adventure
Eloping is a new concept, so a lot of couples may consider planning a micro wedding instead of fully committing to eloping just the two of them. This is completely fine, and a lot of our vendors specialize in small weddings too! Hiring a Washington wedding planner specializing in more intimate events allows you to plan a memorable wedding day mixing elements of traditional weddings and elopements.
If you are planning an elopement with a planner who is based in Seattle, then you should account for travel expenses in your elopement budget if you’re thinking about eloping at one of WA’s national parks.
