One of the biggest obstacles to a quick elopement is getting a dress in time -- the wait time for a gown to come in at a traditional bridal shop typically starts at six months and can often take longer. At LuxElope, we're always on the lookout for beautiful dresses appropriate for an elopement that can be purchased either off the rack or online. The beauty of these gowns -- all from BHLDN, one of our favorite wedding-related retailers -- is that most are available to try on in-store while still being purchasable online. Take a look at our editor's picks for elopement-appropriate wedding gowns and dresses and see if one fits your bridal style.
