The "not so secret" eloping of a lifetime
November 6, 2019
Here's a little secret: There are actually dozens of reasons to wed away, from seeing jaw-dropping locales to spending real bonding time with your nearest and dearest. It's a trend one in four couples is now boarding (A plane! A boat! A helicopter!). Fancy a barefoot bash over a buttoned-up affair? You're not alone. The Mintel U.S. weddings report found that 58 percent of brides want their wedding to be remembered as a fun and casual party, rather than a formal event. No wonder so many couples are hitting the road for their nuptials. After all, when was the last time you saw stilettos on the beach or tuxes in a barn? Destination weddings are especially accommodating for couples steering away from the traditional black-tie wedding.
So, here are some of our favorite spots to inspire, and, when ready, deliver! We'll execute your dreamed wedding...beyond travel!
