The Wedding Files / Elopement


elopementNot every bride to be dreams of a wedding with a lavish ceremony and a reception with a long guest list. Some people would much prefer to celebrate their exchange of wedding vows in private, either close to home or somewhere a little more exotic. We believe the best way to plan a wedding is to stay true to you and your partners personalities and plan a celebration that you will both thoroughly enjoy.

#1 – How about jumping on a big jet plane, popping over to NYC and getting hitched at city hall? Lots of couples do it and some even decide to meet their friends and family at a restaurant afterwards for a post-nuptials party.

#2 – We believe in a ‘there are no rules’ approach wedding attire. Some eloping brides will adopt a less traditional approach to the white dress, some will throw all the rules out the window and others will stick with the long white wedding gown. If you do opt for a shorter, cocktail length dress, choose shoes that are truly outstanding. We love this elopement set in a chapel in Puerto Rico, where the bride and groom went for a classic black and white palette.

#3 – We fancy it to be a pretty fabulous idea to have all the guests stay together in a luxury home, somewhere scenic, in the lead up to the wedding. We were inspired by this elopement.

#4 – Just say yes to Italy. If that didn’t convince you, this elopement will.

#5 – A seaside destination is dreamy for an elopement. Firstly, because you can incorporate subtle nautical styling and secondly, because you don’t have to travel anywhere to start your beachside honeymoon.

#6 – What exchange of vows would be complete without a stunning wedding band to match your dream engagement ring? We think our Jolie engagement ring and wedder make a beautiful couple.
