What Do You Wear When You Elope?
This all depends on where you are eloping or what kind of style you prefer. In this blog post you will find some elopement wedding dress ideas for brides.
For example, if you are eloping at a beach, perhaps a simple bohemian wedding dress is what you are looking for. On the other hand, if you are tying the knot on a snowy mountain, you may want to wear something more comfortable so you can move around easily.
It’s totally up to you what you want to wear. Some style of elopement dresses may pop more than others in photos so it also helps talking to your wedding photographer about the vibe you are going for beforehand!
There’s really no black or white answer to this. At the end of the day it’s your special day so if you want to wear a fancy wedding gown on the beach or a lace wedding dress in the desert, you do that!
We created this blog post on dreamy elopement wedding dresses so that you can get a better idea of what you can wear at your elopement.
Without further ado, here’s a list of our favourite elopement wedding dresses for you…
