More and more couples are eloping today. But absence of the big ceremony doesn’t mean you can’t still have perfect wedding look. There are plenty of dresses that are just begging to be worn to a courthouse ceremony or destination wedding.

First and most important is period of year. Weather forecast that depends on the period in which you are getting married. And accordingly, to that, it’s important to know how to dress. Another important item is the location of elopement.

When it comes to the hairstyle, you can always find ahead and schedule a hairdresser who will fit your hair style to your liking. Or, you can always be your own master and make a braid or bracelet that will emphasize your spontaneous and at the same time you will have romantic hairstyle. Especially good are the various hairdressing accessories, with which you can invest the least effort in preparing hairstyle and you can again look elegant. Just put one flower and remain your hair released, and you will again have a perfect and simple hairdo for your special day.

Make-up for bride

Make-up is important part of your look, that again depends on weather conditions. If you decide to have elopement in the open location, it is advisable that the makeup is present in minimal quantities due to high temperatures. The situation is similar if it is autumn due to the rain that could ruin your make up. And you certainly don’t want something like that to happen on your special day. When it comes to make-up, in addition to personal taste, brides usually decide to use some neutral tones, and a more natural look. Whatever you decide, whether you make up yourself or hire a professional for that, the most important is that you feel nice. Regardless of makeup, the smile that will adorn your face on your special day is better than the best makeup in the world.


If you are planning an elopement, we will not lie to you, you will walk fairly. And accordingly, you need to choose the right footwear that will provide you with comfort during several hours of photographing and during the ceremony itself. Again, listen to yourself … If you are a lover of high-heeled shoes, wear them, but take a pair of spare shoes, which you can change if needed. Or for that day choose ballet shoes or shoes on the platform, and leave high hills at home.

Bridal bouquet

One of the more important parts of your appearance this day is also the bridal bouquet. If you have opted for NY1minute All-inclusive elopement packages, you will also get the bridal bouquet of your choice.

  • Rose– A symbol of beauty and love, the rose is a part of many myths and fairy tales.

  • Peony– The peony has a large, full head, strong perfume, and bright color.

Wedding Vows
