Welcome to the LuxElope blog! We are thrilled to offer the first and only comprehensive website and blog devoted to luxury elopements. It's a concept we believe is long overdue.
Weddings are wonderful affairs. And if your heart is set on a traditional event, then by all means, you should have one. A luxury elopement is simply a beautiful alternative for couples who wish to replace the stress and (often unexpected) expense of a traditional wedding with an intimate experience focused solely on them. And we love that idea.
We also love that a luxury elopement isn't a trip to the local courthouse or a spur-of-the-moment dash to an out-of-state wedding chapel. It's a pre-planned experience that includes a dazzling destination, a legally binding ceremony, a luxurious honeymoon, and a deliberate indulgence in the aspects of a wedding that you've always dreamed of. The gown. The rings. The flowers. The setting. (Because you probably haven't fantasized about the catering or the rentals.)
We love, too, that couples can achieve a luxury wedding experience on an economical* or standard** spending limit. A luxury elopement maximizes the quality of your event while minimizing the costs and planning-related stress.
We've compiled information on some of the most elopement-friendly destinations in the world with varying degrees of ease so you can make an informed choice. Our cost section will introduce you to a new way to look at wedding spending, and our etiquette section will help you navigate the niceties (and challenges) of this type of wedding experience. And this blog will provide up-to-the-minute tips, advice, and style inspiration so you can realize a magical experience on any spending limit.
Be sure to check the site often for new destinations, and the blog for fresh inspiration. And whatever type of event you choose, we congratulate you on your engagement and wish you the best with your wedding planning. Photo: Jasmine Star
