Once an act of rebellion, eloping has gone mainstream. Since the pandemic, more than half of all engaged couples have considered having a more intimate wedding celebration. It's easier than ever to get the best of a traditional wedding (cake, photography, flowers) with an elopement package just for two, especially if you plan to throw a larger celebration down the line. Specialized elopement wedding planners and hotel packages are on the rise across some of the dreamiest US National Park sites, as well as happening cities. Here are our picks for the best elopement packages and places to elope in stress-free style throughout the US.

What Does an Elopement Package Include?

Most elopement packages cover the following:

  • Licensed ceremony officiant
  • A wedding coordinator
  • Witnesses, if needed
  • A photographer
  • A custom bouquet and boutonniere
  • Champagne
  • A wedding cake

How Much Do Elopement Packages Cost?

The cost of elopement packages typically start around $2,000 and include the basics (see above) but often do not include accommodations. Soup-to-nuts packages can reach upwards of $27,000 and include hotel rooms and perks like music, recommendations for hair and makeup, and a post-ceremony dinner.

Even elopements cost extra on weekends and during holidays, particularly in tourism hotspot destinations like Aspen or Napa Valley. Standard packages typically include 2 hours of photography; more hours will up the price. Most packages are customizable. It will cost you, but if your dream day includes a live band or gorgeous floral arrangements, it's probably worth the splurge.

Read the fine print: Some elopement packages do not include venue permits, particularly in national parks, and couples are typically still responsible for acquiring their own marriage license. If you plan to travel, book airfare in advance.
