Elopement Questions & Ideas

Hi Guys,


Like most of us, COVID has done a number to our weddings. My original plan was Jan 2021 Havana, Cuba... but that doesn't look to be an option. Oh well, I've come to the point in my planning where "When life gives you lemons..."


So here we are, creating plans B through Z. But my partner and I would rather take that money and use towards our house renos, student loans, etc. So we're looking at the idea of elopement. I was hoping there was someone here who could let me know some information.


Whats the process like?

Where are some places in Ontario (we're not feeling the idea of outside Ontario) you would suggest

Any recommendations for any of it


Would you consider using a ceremony space of a venue?


Thanks in advance!


Maria

    Wow! that sounds beautiful. We still havent done anything yet. We're on a micromony/elopement feel right now. Hopefully we can do something soon.

    Congratulations on your wedding Smiley heart

    We just got married July 2nd- right as restrictions were starting to relax. We didnt elope, but our plan was to always keep it on the smaller side- about 30 guests. After covid hit we too felt we didnt want to wait and we'd rather put the money towards a nice trip or honeymoon so our wedding only had 6 guests. We got married at a conservation area (rental cost was $3/person but we gave them $100 because we love the spot and it would have cost us way more somewhere else). We went back to our yard for cake; it was honestly super nice and we loved how it all turned out 馃グ


    I'd suggest looking for something similar; a park, conservation area, etc. Maybe there is somewhere near you that has meaning? A place meaningful to you is always beautiful because of the story it tells.

    These questions or inquires can be answered by the wedding coordinator and know better for a better choice to make towards your preference.

    I have a venue and reception option right now. But I鈥檓 looking into something with my FH, an officiant, photographer and maybe witnesses.
    I鈥檓 not sure where would be some nice venues. Or if I should do it inside or outside. Lol. This is new to me. I don鈥檛 know many people who went this route

    We鈥檝e got both options in mind - but with our numbers going back up - I think the 2 of us an officiant and photographer (which could even be our witnesses) and soon would be best.
    We鈥檝e got some farm land (in the family) which we intend to use for the party whenever this is over with ALL family friends and some haha! So I鈥檓 not worried about that part.
    I just want amazing photos! LOL so the scenery is what I鈥檓 looking for in terms of where to elope. My FH doesn鈥檛 really care about where, when, or how he鈥檚 very much a 鈥渢ell me where and when and I鈥檒l be there鈥滽inda guy.

    Creating a back up plan for the wedding day is harder and depending on where you are living. Venues to hold the wedding and reception is easier than to be travelling 2 different location for guests to enjoy cocktail hour in between.

    You two have a style (modern, rustic, casual, etc.) in mind to see places. Compare prices of 3 best locations within your budget for the better deal.

    Hi Maria!


    You're definitely right, I've been through plans B-Z this year! At one point elopement was on our list.
    I would figure out what you mean by elopement. Just the two of you and the legally required people, or a small gathering of you with closest family? Once you know that you'll know how much space you need for the ceremony and any kind of post ceremony celebration you want. We had been planning on only us, witnesses, officiant and photographer when that was what our province allowed and our group would have fit anywhere.
