Plan an Intimate Elopement Wedding Ceremony Like a Pro!
Tips from Event Coordinators at Copper Leaf Gardens & Event Center
There are a lot of benefits to choosing an elopement over a traditional ceremony. Eloping often takes some of the pressure off of the big day, allows you and your fiancee to have a more intimate ceremony, and often costs less! Regardless of your reasoning, these tips will help ensure your wedding day is perfect, no matter how small.
Location is Everything
The beauty of an elopement, is that you can go anywhere! This will really allow you and your fiancee to choose a location that is perfect for the two of you. Many venues also have elopement packages, which offer many of the same amenities for a fraction of the price!
Getting the Look Right
Elopement ceremonies typically have a more casual dress code and decor. A simple white cocktail dress is budget friendly and adorable – perfect for your small elopement! Add pops of color to your decor to highlight your and your fiance’s personality and use hand-made items (think: table cards, programs) to add personality without added cost.
Don’t Forget the Party!
If you choose a venue or event center for your elopement, ask about all-inclusive packages, which often help save money on rentals, linens, food, and staff. The idea is to keep costs down, so you only want to pay for the items you need. If you’re only looking for a cocktail menu, don’t pay for a full buffet. An venue with both indoor and outdoor elements allow your party to freely move throughout the venue, without feeling cramped in one space.
Avoid legal mishaps by being over prepared. You should know the laws and regulations in your area before you begin. The paperwork is the least fun aspect of wedding planning, so make sure you get it out of the way before leaving for your elopement.
