You’ve decided an intimate elopement is the way to celebrate your love and commitment to each other but now you have to decide who to invite! Elopements are known for being small, including only the closest people, if any. Many people invite their parents and maybe a close friend or two. It is highly recommended to research the requirements based on where you decide to elope. Some places require you have guests as witnesses. When making your decision, keep in mind that people’s reactions may vary. Some people will be overwhelmed with joy for you and your honey! Others, though they are happy for you two to tie the knot, may react negatively because they are upset they will not be a part of the BIG day! Remember, this is your day so it is your choice!
ANYWHERE! The great thing about eloping is that you have countless possibilities on where to hold your ceremony! Are you a beachy person or maybe the mountains? Or maybe you just want to head down to City Hall and celebrate elsewhere after! Just remember, wherever you decide will have their own set of rules and requirements. It is a great idea to look into these necessities immediately as some places may take a couple weeks to process your marriage certificate and other requirements. It is best to be fully prepared to guarantee you enjoy your special day together!
When planning your elopement, there are several other things to think about! What will you and your soon-to-be husband/wife wear? Do you still want to wear a bridal gown and suit or do you both prefer a more casual look? What vendors will you still need? Will you want a musician or DJ for your ceremony entertainment? Many experts, such as The Knot and Wedding Wire, highly recommend splurging on photographers and/or videographers. Since elopements tend to have a smaller guest list, it is important to have the beautiful photos to share with your loved ones who were not in attendance and maybe one day, your own children!
Here, we do not want to focus on why you should elope because this is a very personal decision for you and your darling to make together! Instead, we want to tell you why you should elope at the Tybee Wedding Chapel (without tooting our own horns, of course)! The Chapel offers a beautiful sanctuary for your ceremony, as well as the bridal suite and groom’s quarters for getting ready beforehand. The Chapel’s timeless architecture provides an intimate space for you and your spouse to exchange your loving vows. The Chapel is also equipped with its own custom surround system for your ceremony music and gorgeous chandeliers and arched windows to offer a beauty of natural light! The entire venue, inside and out, presents multiple romantic locations for those perfect wedding day captures and if you want to add a beach photoshoot, you’re simply a mile away!
