Not Your Mother's Elopement: The New Way to Wed | Jet Wed Co.


Long gone are the days were elopements were secretive courthouse affairs. More and more couples are wanting the simplicity of an elopement mixed with traditional wedding elements. This is what we specialize in here at Jet Wed Co., and we think the industry is only scratching the surface on what will become a huge trend in years to come. So what makes this new, hybrid wedding different?

1. Family Involvement

Our clients may tell their family of their plans months in advance—in fact, many of them make the decision with their families. This allows their loved ones to feel involved in the process and adds a bit of tradition to their plans.

2. Full Event Design

Even if the only people there are the couple themselves, design and decor still plays an important part in the big day. Here at Jet Wed Co., we specialize in full-service event design from that make even the most intimate ceremonies feel major.

3. Stellar Vendors

We’ve written about this before, but elopements shouldn’t mean that you don’t get to choose the day-of team of your dreams! Whoever and whatever you need to make you feel your best—whether it’s a hair & makeup artist or that great local photographer you’ve been stalking on Instagram—book them.

4. The Built-In Honeymoon

The beauty of having a ceremony abroad is the ability to wake up the next day already at your honeymoon destination. We advise our brides to pick a central location that can easily transition into the honeymoon week.

These are just a few of the many ways that brides are choosing to redefine eloping. How would you shake things up?
