Planning an elopement is considered a last minute decision. An elopement is for two people, a small destination group is the couple with friends or family - planned ahead. There are several things to consider when planning either:

  1. Whether the state or country where you are planning your elopement offers a same day marriage license.  Check with them to find out what legal papers you need to gain a license.  Most marriage bureaus are open Monday through Friday from 9:am to noon or 5:pm on Fridays, but it is best to call and check.  
  2. You will require a licensed wedding officiant.  
  3. Marriage Laws require you bring proper documentation of who you are, your divorce certificate - if previously married and it is suggested you call the local bureau or check their website for specific rulings. California is known for gaining your marriage license in a local California city, and bringing it with you to your chosen California wedding location. It is best to check the local rulings of the county/city where you plan to be wed by phoning ahead.
  4. Wedding officiants may also specialize in knowledge of the region you are traveling too.
  5. There are wedding coordinators that specialize in elopements for two, the ceremonies for renewing your vows and can recommend or book your time for marriage license and honeymoon arrangements in their region.
  6. It is suggested you arrive on Friday early to gain your marriage license by noon, enjoy your ceremony and have the weekend or more for your honeymoon.
