The beauty of an elopement is that the focus is truly on you, your partner and your union. You can take your elopement plan and craft a day that is as unique as you. There’s no elaborate guests lists, no keeping your parents sweet or worry about schedules. It’s a stress-free way to mark your union in a way that reflects your values and relationship.
Take the Day
Your elopement only happens once so take the day and make it an occasion! One of the perks of having an elopement is not being tied down to a schedule and worrying about venue times and guests arriving. Contemplate what would make this day truly amazing for you. You could book the fanciest boutique hotel and after your vows, take in the grandeur of your surroundings with spa treatments, relaxation and cocktails. Perhaps you want to make the most out of your stunning outfit and bar hop or you could throw on your outdoor gear, hike up a mountain to have a picnic at sunset.
A first look is the best addition to your elopement. Get ready separately and enjoy all of the anticipation as you walk toward your loved one for the last time before being married. It leaves you to focus on being in the moment for the rest of the day, enjoying the atmosphere and being there with your loved one.
Get Ready Together
Maybe a first look isn’t for you? Why not get ready together! Have fun putting on your favourite playlist, drink champagne and take your time helping each other get ready for the biggest day of your life.
Create a getting ready playlist so you don’t have any interruptions!
Rent a Kickass Car.
Always wanted to rent a mustang or an old school Defender? Now’s your chance! Why not take your dream car for a spin with your other half taking in all of those special spots that made up your relationship. Make a note of all of those places that you’ve wanted to visit and go on a road trip!
Plan a Surprise
Plan a little surprise for your partner during the ceremony or after you have tied the knot. This could be a beautifully handmade photo album of your relationship or it could be your vows written in a stunning vow book which will serve as a gorgeous reminder. You could really make them smile by singing your favourite song during the ceremony and watch them beam! You could arrange a surprise party with all of your loved ones in one place!
Change Your Outfit.
As they say, go big or go home! You’re in charge of the schedule so why not add some extra flair with some exciting outfit changes. Wear your fanciest pyjamas as you get ready together, dress all in white for your ceremony or change into a little disco number for the celebrations. If you have a few destinations throughout the day, outfit changes can break them up and create specific moods for each part of the elopement.
