What you choose to wear on your wedding day is an expression of who you are and you should feel like the best version of yourself in it. No matter how particular your personal style is there is a dress, suit, or jumpsuit for you! If anything, the real trouble lies in narrowing down all the options out there. Lemme help you out before you even need to cross that bridge! 

The three things you should prioritize when looking for your wedding attire are: style, comfortability, and functionally (and budget as an honorary 4th thing).

Europe is innately stunning and brimming with things to experience—what if your stay could be an extension of that experience? Reflecting the history of where you are, providing a retreat from the world, and can make something simple– like waking up in the morning– a lifelong memory.  When you picture your elopement are you in a glass igloo in Finland or a private castle in Scotland? Or kicking back at a windmill in the Dutch countryside? OR orrr diving into the Mediterranean Sea first thing in the morning? If you can’t choose then don’t fret! I’ve compiled a list that has all of that and MORE. Stays where there’s plenty of room for your loved ones to come along on the adventure and out of this world locations where the scenery can’t be beat.

Choosing each other, choosing a one-of-a-kind adventure, and choosing to keep this experience special between just the two of you is an easy “yes”. Don’t let fear or other people’s reactions make you doubt your choice to elope—or even worse—turn it into a “no”! It takes a special kind of person to get married this way, because it is equal parts brave and beautiful. You’re doing something different and although your friends and family may not understand at first, they’ll come around. The good news is, you don’t have to navigate these weird waters alone. I’ve got you!

How to Tell Family and Friends that You’re Eloping

It’s totally up to you whether or not you want to believe in the Irish folklore of sirens, fairies, and leprechauns—but the overall beauty of Ireland is 100% irrefutable. The sites, culture, people, and scenery are equally wonderful. The country is steeped in a proud history and the phenomenal landscape has inspired musicians, poets, and artists alike. Trust me when I say the rolling hills are even more green in person, the sounds of the waves below the Cliffs of Moher are louder than you can imagine, and being stuck on a country road due to rouge sheep blocking the way isn’t just some made-up movie scenario. It’s almost as if the rest of the world falls away and you’re transported to another, more tranquil place in time.

HOW TO PLAN A GRAND ALL-DAY ELOPEMENT

the full post

I feel like Airbnbs are the best kept secret when it comes to planning an intimate elopement or minimony. Imagine sitting in a cabin, the morning light streaming through the tree into your windows, & warm coffee in your hand as you take a quiet moment to write your vows. The makeup artist arrives as you get ready in a room close enough to your partner that you can hear them laugh, but far enough that you won’t catch a glimpse of one another before your first look. Once you’re ready you step out onto a patio with panoramic views of the mountains, your closest loved ones teary eyed & giddy to watch you both commit your lives to one another. After the ceremony you enjoy cocktails outside & an intimate catered dinner. You end the night in your pajamas around the fire pit, stargazing while reflecting on your wedding day.
