Elopement ideas

My boyfriend and I are planning to elope. We have a limited budget and we don't want to have the marriage at the courthouse. Any suggestions?

Have you considered having a friend perform your marriage?

My son went through them. It's pretty cheap and surprisingly easy. It was a real fun wedding.

Well friends of mine went to New Orleans (he was there on a business trip and extended it) - she joined him and they were married there. They did hire a photographer that I found on Craigs list to do an engagement style session for about $200.

So look into something like that - a special place. A JOP or get a friend ordained. Make sure to dress up and have someone take pics. In other words, make it special!!

If you are having a friend marry you - which then really also would not be an elopement in the most technical of the sense - make sure that whatever they go through means your marriage will be valid in your state.

So check those laws and regulations.
