You can get married and love your wedding day...and not go broke!
Getting married without going broke. Yes, it is possible to marry the person of your dreams and stay on budget, or get married on a very low budget and save those dollars for the honeymoon or house or blah - student loans.
Elope not broke! That needs to be your motto. You can have a beautiful, authentic, personal wedding ceremony and not break the bank. Let me tell you how.
Elope in Michigan! Yes, you can elope, you can elope this week or next or a month from now. Michigan elopements allow you to focus on your love and your marriage. Eloping is mean to be simple and stress free.
One, gather your tribe, your closest family and friends keep the list short, think around 10 people.
Two, decide on a elopement venue or location. You can be inside or outside, use your favorite park or restaurant, the key is to keep it simple, don't over think it.
But, here's the secret, call your favorite wedding venue, and ask about getting married on a Monday - at noon! Tell them you only want use of the venue for one hour - see what the rate is - it's a steal I promise! Because...you only need the space and 10 chairs, your not bringing in floral and vendors and food just you, your favorite ten people...that's it!
Three, pick a photographer - yes, this is a splurge item but in my opinion any wedding day needs amazing photos and there is one way to do that - hire a great photographer or...get your tribe to buy their services as your gift!
Four, grab your marriage license; you gotta make that elopement legal.
Oh, and fifth and final step...hire me. We will craft the most dreamy, personal and loving elopement ceremony.
Boom! There you go, your hitched.
You can always go to your local favorite restaurant to celebrate or head back to your house to celebrate your elopement with champagne and crackers and cheese. Whatever way you choose to get married make your marriage personal and all about your love.
