Ask The Expert: How much does an elopement cost?

The current rise in the trend of eloping has many couples running to the altar without even so much as an idea of getting married in their state is. Getting turned away at the courthouse can be embarrassing, frustrating, and can put a damper on the spontaneity aspect of eloping, but there are certain costs that many couples may not realize ahead of time:

Marriage License

A marriage license can range anywhere from $10-115 and prices vary by state. For some states there is also an application process that can take anywhere from a week to a month to process, a blood test requirement and even premarital classes that need to be taken before the license is produced.
Once you obtain your license (depending on the state) it is usually valid anywhere between 30 and 90 days after issuance. Once the license has expired, it will not be honored and you will need to obtain a new one.

Traveling Costs

If you’re planning a destination elopement, this may drive up your costs. Depending on where you plan on going, traveling costs can range anywhere between $600-4,000 (hotel and airfare included). Thankfully, sites such as Groupon has GREAT deals on All-inclusive trips for two for as low as $199 per person!

Wedding Planner

I know what you’re thinking, “Who needs a wedding planner for an elopement?” But this idea goes far beyond having someone orchestrate your day. As a matter of fact, your “wedding planner” doesn’t have to be a person at all. The newest craze of ‘Wedding in a Box’ provides couples with everything they need to put on a lovely ceremony without the hassle (or price) of a conventional wedding. These pre-planned wedding kits feature things like: a bouquet, a backdrop, décor, champagne, cupcakes and much more, all for the reasonable price of $999. The best thing about these kits is that they can be set up literally anywhere you plan on having your elopement, which is perfect for those couples who are always on-the-go.

Ask the Expert: What are some ways to propose to my girlfriend?

Proposals should always be planned ahead of time, but it can be confusing trying to figure out what to do and say, especially when you’re trembling with fear. It’s nerve-wrecking, I know, but proposing to your girlfriend doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive and can be done either in the company of all of your friends and family, or intimately between the two of you.

Do It after a Romantic Night Out the Town

Nothing makes for a better nightcap than just getting proposed. Take your lady out for the best date night of her life. Go out and do something that she absolutely loves- if she loves theater, try to see if the stage director will let you come on the stage after curtain call and pop the question in front of the cast and audience. Take her on a romantic afternoon date, ride bikes around town, hit up the nearest carnival and propose to her at the top of the ferris wheel. If you’re both homebodies, order her favorite food and do a scavenger hunt around the house- the prize will be an empty ring box and when she turns around, get on your knee and propose.

Do it on a Roadtrip

If your beau is down with taking long drives to new places, then this may be a great option for you. This will take a great deal of planning ahead on your part, including getting the marriage license and securing a venue to have the ceremony at your final destination. Purchase ‘Wedding in a Box,’ a portable wedding option, that features everything you’ll need to put on a beautiful ceremony, including a bouquet and champagne. Once you reach your destination, wake up bright and early, slip the ring on her finger while she’s asleep, sneak out early to set up the decorations at the venue and go back and get your bride-to-be. Wake her up by blasting “I Think I Wanna Marry You” by Bruno Mars and lip sync for your life, hunny! Then drive to the venue, and say ‘I Do!’

Ask the Expert: What is the Quickest I Can Plan a Wedding

Elopement is one of the most popular options that couples are turning to. Not only is it cost efficient and practical, but elopement gives couples the freedom and flexibility to plan their nuptials anywhere they want without wasting months or years at a time doing it. Planning an elopement or a small, intimate wedding can be done in a whole year in advance or even as little as 7 days.

How Can I Plan a Wedding in 7 Days?

The idea of wedding planning can seem like an unbearable burden of flower arrangements, cake sampling, scheduling, color swatches and annoying ass seating charts…but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, you can literally just schedule your elopement (if needed), purchase your wedding license, hire a freelance photographer and head down to the courthouse with you beau and your witnesses!

However, if you’re interested in a little bit more fanfare, purchase a portable wedding, otherwise known as ‘Wedding in a Box!’ Each kit features a picture taking app, décor, cupcakes, champagne, a bouquet and everything else you need to have a wonderfully designed wedding at about a fraction of the cost. ‘Wedding in a Box’ can range from $999-1,500 and can be purchased in as little as 7 days before your wedding! Not only is a portable wedding THE best choice for couples who are eloping, but it caters to the spontaneity that makes elopement so romantic.
So whether you choose Dubai, the Virgin Islands, or your mom’s backyard, getting eloped with Wedding in a Box will give you all of the flare of months of planning without the actual months.
Take away the stress of planning and save months of time by purchasing Wedding in a Box, today!

Ask the Expert: How far in advance should I book my vendors?

Some vendors may need to be booked in advanced at least a year and a half before your elopement date, others can accommodate you within a couple of weeks. It’s always best to book your vendor as far in advance as you possibly can, especially if your elopement is during the peak season. However, if you’re flexible, try to compose a list of vendors that you like, see which one has an opening on your wedding date and book them. But in most cases, vendors usually like for you to book with them at least 3 months in advance.

Venues

If you and your partner do plan to elope but want to do it at a certain spot such as a lodge or vineyard, then you will need to contact the venue in order to see what dates they have available for elopement ceremonies. You may be surprised that there are a number of openings within a reasonable timeframe (1-2 weeks), but for venues that are extremely popular like Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World or the Eiffel Tower, you may be looking at a 6-12 month wait. That gives you more than enough time to purchase your ‘Wedding in a Box’ portable wedding kit so that you have it with you to take on your trip!

Photographers

If you’re interested in booking a photographer to capture your intimate ceremony, then you may need to contact them at least 3 months in advance. I know that’s not an ideal timeframe for couples looking to elope, but professional photographers usually get booked quickly, especially during peak wedding season.

If the photographer you prefer is not available within a reasonable enough timeframe, try to find someone else with a similar shooting style and give them a call. You can even try freelance photographers or photography students who need to expand their portfolio. They’re not usually as busy as a professional photographer and will more than likely shuffle their schedule around to prioritize the date of your elopement.

Travel the World Tuesdays: Planning for a Wedding in Upstate New York

Having a wedding in NYC sounds like every girl’s dream, right? The bright lights, the skyline, taking pictures during the midday traffic jam. But for many women, even New Yorkers, having a wedding in the city isn’t quite as dreamy as having it upstate. Full of lodges, gorgeous state parks and mountains, upstate New York is definitely one of the best place to have a wedding especially if you’re into the whole rustic vibe (nothing like a Moose head staring at you while you’re professing your love to each other, right?). If you’re someone who loves fishing, hunting, and basically anything and everything to do with the outdoors, then this may be the spot for you. But before you hit the expressway, there are a few things that you need to know before planning a wedding in Upstate New York:

When to Plan

The scenery in upstate New York is to die for- the trees in autumn are the perfect decadence of oranges, reds and yellows, the blossoms in the spring make it look like a dream, snowcapped mountains make a magical backdrop and the lakeside during the summer glistens as sailboats pass by on the horizon.
There are literally hundreds of different settings to choose from when dealing with an Upstate New York wedding, so much so that you could literally plan an elopement during any season and have the perfect backdrop for your nuptials (as well as some pretty spiffy looking pictures, too). Some popular places to check out are the Adirondacks, Barcelona Lakeside, Lake Taghkanic State Park, Finger Lakes, Lake Placid and Cooperstown.

Ceremonies

If you’re the outdoors-y type, the various state parks and lodges will be right up your alley, but why plan a regular ceremony? Go have your ceremony in a pine grove, say your vows atop the Adirondacks…Hell, do it on a cliff! If you’re going to elope, may as well make it memorable!
No matter where you decide to have your wedding- whether in a lodge full of taxidermy or overlooking the beautiful landscape from the edge of a cliff, Wedding in a Box has everything you need and more to give your ceremony the flare you’re looking for. Each package comes with a bouquet, décor, picture app, cupcakes, champagne, and much more, all for just $1,000! And if that’s not awesome enough, you can order your Wedding in a Box in as little as 7 days before your elopement!
