A pop up wedding (a.k.a. elopement) can be carried out in many ways, but the common idea is a simple or spontaneous event and a small guest list.
These small wedding events are increasingly popular as an alternative to the courthouse or justice of the peace.
The couple brings their marriage license, has an officiant and a short ceremony, plus a photographer, flowers and maybe even cake, but all on a smaller scale and in a shorter amount of time.
How do you know what’s right for you?
Couples are rethinking their wedding choices. “What is meaningful to us? What elements are important in our wedding?” Each will have a different answer. There are no right and wrong ways to have a wedding, only what is right for you.
For some, it’s having their 300 closest friends and family to eat, drink and dance. For some, their wedding is about the two of them privately sharing vows. Most have a budget, limited time to plan, school, work, family, and all sorts of ideas, dreams, pressures and expectations. So every wedding is different. And luckily today there are lots of options.
Planning a Pop-Up Wedding
You can create your own pop up wedding at your choice of location. Location options open up on weekdays and Sundays that are often unavailable to larger groups, and smaller unconventional venues may be available on Saturdays at short notice.
I have helped couples with elopements in parks, botanical gardens, museums, breweries, wineries, stadiums, restaurants, barns, backyards, living rooms and more.
