There are few things more exciting than getting married to your soulmate. Once you have popped the question and gotten a yes, the wedding planning process will start. Approximately 2 million people get married in the United States every year. If you and your partner want a worry-free and inexpensive wedding option, eloping might be a good move. 

The people who choose to elope would rather have a small ceremony with a handful of people present. The main thing you need to do to make your elopement fun and memorable is to create a detailed plan. Below are some things to keep in mind as you plan your elopement. 

Choose The Right Destination

Instead of spending tons of money on a traditional wedding and reception, you need to think about going on a trip with your soulmate instead. Many people use the money they would spend on a wedding to fund an elopement trip with their future husband/wife and a few close relatives/friends. If this sounds like something you are interested in, then choosing the right destination for your elopement trip is crucial. 

Do you love the outdoors and great food? If so, the single-day couples experience offered by Canyons and Chefs is a great fit. This trip will take place in a secluded wilderness setting and will feature a menu of delicious food cooked by a capable chef. During your trip, you and your small party can take part in activities like hiking, paddling and biking. Our luxury camps also have top-notch accommodations like quality yurt tents, private showers and bathrooms. 

Selecting the Right Attire

Once you have a destination chosen for your elopement, you will need to start making decisions about the attire you want to wear. If you choose to have a glamping experience for your elopement, you probably want comfortable attire. Trying to wear a tuxedo or a wedding gown in an outdoor setting can be both uncomfortable and difficult. This is why you need to think about scaling back the attire you wear. 

Clothing options like sundresses and suits are well-suited for an outdoor elopement. The beauty of eloping is that you don’t have to adhere to wedding traditions. This means you can wear anything you feel comfortable in without fear of judgment from onlookers. 

Don’t Forget to Hire a Photographer

Documenting this once-in-a-lifetime experience is something you should view as a priority. One of the best ways to accomplish this goal is by hiring an experienced photographer. Luckily, tons of professional photographers are willing to travel to your location and take pictures of you and your new spouse. Before you hire a photographer to document this momentous occasion, take a look at their portfolio. With some time and research, you and your future spouse can choose a photographer to preserve your elopement memories. 

If you are seriously considering the prospect of eloping, then it is time to start the planning process. With a detailed plan, you can make this experience special and stress-free.
