While some couples want to savor their engagement and let the wedding planning process linger, others may want to skip the stress of a large, lavish ceremony and simply elope. With Florida offering a diverse roster of venues ranging from beachside hotels to private islands, you have plenty of styles and price points to choose from when booking an intimate celebration that hones in on what truly matters—the couple.

We've scoured elopement packages from wedding planners and venues everywhere, from the tip of the state in Key West to the panhandle in Sandestin. For something on the more rustic side, truly immersed in the state's magnificent nature, you can always have a National Park elopement in the Everglades surrounded by coastal mangroves. But for something less hands-on, here are 10 of the best places to elope in Florida.
