Elopement Ceremonies Charleston, SC

A big wedding isn’t for everyone. You may opt to elope because you have to postpone your wedding, or you don’t want to be the center of attention, or you are trying to save money for your life together. Regardless, just because you’re eloping doesn’t mean you can’t have a professional officiant do it.

Stephen Palmer Weddings offers elopement ceremonies in Charleston, SC. We are the right team to contact if you are planning to elope with the love of your life.

Factors To Consider Before You Elope

Below are some of the essential things you need to considerto help get you straight to your happily ever after with as little stress as possible.

Check The Law

Marriage laws vary in different states. Therefore you need to check the direction of your state before eloping. Do you need a license? How long will it take? What are the necessary credentials? Are witnesses required? These are questions you need to ask yourself if you want your elopement to go off without a problem. You should also book an officiant who can marry you unless you are getting married at a courthouse.

Book Your Travel And Find Your Vendors

It is essential to make travel arrangements as early as possible to save money and relieve stress. While your elopement destination doesn’t have to be an exotic faraway locale, it is something you should consider during planning. Consider the place that will be of significance for the two of you. The location should be memorable.

Plan The Ceremony

Although Elopements have fewer moving parts than a large wedding, there’s still a need for advanced ceremony planning. What will you wear? Where will the ceremony take place? Do you want a bouquet? As much as it is not a large wedding, you still want your elopement moment to be unique. An elopement is also a great way to steer away from tradition and pick an outfit that may be more streetwear.

Throw A Post Elopement Party

Eloping means it’s a private celebration, just you and your partner. But it is essential to invite a few friends and family to a reception after saying ‘I do’ to celebrate with you. Alternatively, you can postpone the celebration or do it on your first anniversary or something of the sort.

People Also Ask

What Is Eloping?

Eloping is getting married without telling anyone, especially your parents and relatives.

Is It Better To Elope Or Have A Wedding?

Elopement is cheaper than having a wedding ceremony. It only allows you to focus on your honeymoon.

Does Eloping Have To Be A Secret?

No, eloping doesn’t have to be a secret. Your marriage is essential to celebrate with the people who matter most to you, and that should include your family.
