The New Trend of Luxury Elopement Weddings
Eloping has always been seen as a more relaxed and intimate way to get married. In the past, elopements were often spontaneous, unplanned or planned the last minute.
But now, luxury elopement weddings are becoming more and more popular. They are planned sometimes a year or two in advance and styled to perfection.
These are highly personalized weddings that are designed specifically for each couple. No to elopements are the same.
And while they might not be traditional, we believe that luxury elopements are more romantic and just as important as a big wedding.
Why Choose a Luxury Elopement?
When you choose to elope, you’re deciding to focus on what’s important: your relationship.
A luxury elopement wedding is even more personal because it is designed specifically for you and your fiance.
Every detail of the day will be thought out and planned to perfection.
Plus, luxury elopements often take place in breathtaking locations. Whether you choose to get married in the Lake Como, Swiss Alps, or on a sandy beach in Hawaii, you can be sure that your luxury elopement will be an unforgettable experience.
You'll have fewer guests, so you won’t have to worry about catering costs or to rent out a large venue.
You can instead choose to stay in a 5-Star boutique hotel, have an exclusive dinner for two, and with a private chef for a fraction of a traditional wedding.
You can still buy your dream wedding dress, or if you prefer, opt for simple yet elegant gowns that you can wear again and again.
How to Plan the Perfect Luxury Elopement Wedding
If you’re interested in planning a luxury elopement wedding, you should keep a few things in mind.
First, start by thinking about what kind of experience you want to create for yourselves.
Do you want something intimate and romantic? For example, on the magical Island of Capri.
Or would you prefer something more adventurous? For example, in Big Sur, California.
Once you have an idea of your day's overall tone and feel, start planning the details.
The next step is to find the perfect location.
It’s always a good idea to find an elopement specialist who is local or knows the area well and have them do all the legwork so you show up on the day of your elopement! They’ll design your day, help you will all the logistics, and create something personalized and unique.
But to give you some ideas, consider getting married in Lake Como or Greece if you're looking for breathtaking scenery.
Or if you prefer warmer weather, Hawaii, Southern California, or the Caribbean islands are always beautiful options.
Once you’ve settled on a location, it’s time to start thinking about logistics like transportation and accommodations.
Finally, don’t forget to plan for your wedding day attire! I highly suggest choosing your attire after you choose your location and your elopement designer has created your theme and concept.
Whatever you decide, make sure that your clothing matches the overall tone and feel of your day so that everything comes together perfectly.
