With the average cost of a wedding at $27,000 in the Lone Star State, it's not surprising many couples are opting for elopements instead of big weddings. With an elopement, you can spend much less yet still create an everlasting memory. Wedding planners and venues across the state offer a myriad of unique ways for getting legally married in Texas. Below, you'll find the best places to elope in the state.
