Elopement Wedding Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Elopements Inc.? A: Elopements Inc. is a specialized service dedicated to helping engaged couples plan and execute their dream elopement. We provide all-inclusive elopement packages, wedding officiant services, wedding photography services, and more to ensure your intimate wedding experience is stress-free and memorable.

Q: Who should consider an elopement? A: Elopements are perfect for couples who want a more personal, intimate, and cost-effective wedding experience. If you prefer the idea of exchanging vows in a unique or private setting without the presence of a large guest list, an elopement might be ideal for you.

Q: Is an elopement legally recognized? A: Yes, elopements are legally recognized as long as all legal requirements for marriage in your chosen destination are fulfilled. Elopements Inc. assists with understanding and completing these legalities to ensure your marriage is valid.

Q: How do we choose our elopement location? A: Our team at Elopements Inc. will work closely with you to identify the perfect location based on your preferences, desired scenery, budget, and any travel considerations. We offer a portfolio of stunning locations!

Q: Can we personalize our elopement package? A: Absolutely! We believe your elopement should reflect your individuality as a couple. For this reason we offer a custom option for couples that would like to fully customize their experience. Our custom elopement package still includes the officiant and photographer, but allows you to pick your perfect venue or even an AIRBNB.

Q: How far in advance should we book our elopement? A: We recommend booking as far in advance as possible to secure your preferred date and location. A good rule of thumb is at least 3-6 months prior to your desired date, but we can accommodate shorter timelines if needed. We have couples that book one to even two years in advance.

Q: What kind of budget do we need for an elopement? A: Elopements cost a LOT less than traditional weddings due to the smaller scale. Our packages vary depending on location, services included, and customization options. Contact us for a consultation so we can provide a package that suits your budget.

Q: Do you provide witnesses for the ceremony if required by law? A: Yes, if your chosen location requires witnesses by law for the marriage to be valid, we can arrange for witnesses to be present during your ceremony.

Q: Can family or friends attend our elopement? A: Of course! While elopements typically involve just the couple, we welcome the inclusion of a few close family members or friends if you wish. Just let us know how many guests you’re expecting so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Q: What about photography? Can we have professional photos taken? A: Professional photography is included in all of our packages because we understand how important it is to capture these moments. You’ll work with experienced photographers who specialize in elopements and intimate ceremonies.

Q: How does the planning process work with Elopements Inc.? A: Once you reach out to us, we can either schedule a consultation or send over a link to book the package that fits your vision. After that, we handle all the details for your special day.

Q: Will there be someone from Elopements Inc. with us on our special day? A: Yes! In all cases, our officiant and photographer will be with you and in some cases even a coordinator from our team will be there to ensure everything runs smoothly on your big day so that you can focus on each other without any distractions or concerns.

Q: What if we need help with legal paperwork after the ceremony? A: We provide guidance with all necessary legal paperwork before and after your ceremony to ensure that everything is filed correctly so that your marriage is officially recognized.

Q: Are there any restrictions on where we can hold our elopement? A: While there are countless breathtaking locations where you can hold your elopement, some places may have restrictions or require permits. Our team will inform you about any such conditions and take care of obtaining necessary permissions and permits.

Q: What should we wear for our elopement? A: Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable and reflects your personal style! Whether it’s traditional wedding attire or something more casual suited to your location (like hiking boots for mountain vows), it’s entirely up to you. We’re here to offer advice if needed!

Q: What if it rains? A: The show must go on! Rain or shine our team will be there to give you the best experience possible, no matter what mother nature throws at us.

Q: Do you offer refunds? A: We are not able to offer refunds as we are having our team reserve your date and not take any other bookings that may come along.

Q: What if we need to reschedule? A: We do realize that life happens and for this reason we do work with couples to reschedule with enough advanced notice.
