Nontraditional Elopement

Oct 1, 2023


My favorite rule about weddings and elopements- there are no rules! Cheesy, I know, but couldn’t be more true! I love seeing couples break free from the mold and craft their own unique celebration and experience; something that feels true to them. Weddings and elopements are no longer confined to a set of boundaries, but rather a reflection of the love and personality of the couple.

Weddings are ultimately about the profound connection between two individuals embarking on a lifelong journey together. While the dress, decor, and details contribute to the aesthetic of the celebration, the true essence of a wedding lies in the unique bond and shared between to people, and the promises and commitment they make for each other. Focusing on the authenticity of the relationship, the vows exchanged, and the moments shared during the ceremony elevates the significance of the occasion.

One of my recent brides decided to ditch the traditional wedding dress and opted for something completely unexpected—a jumpsuit paired with a delicate veil. And let me tell you, she looked so stunning! Her choice demonstrated that there are no rules when it comes to personal style. You should wear whatever makes you feel confident and beautiful on your big day. It was an embodiment of her free spirit and her desire to deviate from the norm.

Choosing a jumpsuit over a traditional dress can be a bold move! It’s a decision that highlights the couple’s desire to break free from traditions and embrace their individuality.

With the addition of a veil and a stunning location, this elopement was a perfect mix of modern yet whimsical.

Ultimately, weddings and elopements are a celebration of love and commitment. The most important thing is to do what feels right for you and your partner, regardless of societal expectations.

So, if you’re dreaming of a nontraditional wedding dress or want to incorporate unconventional elements into your celebration, go for it! Your day should be a representation of your love story, and there are no rules when it comes to expressing that in your own unique way. Create a day that feels like you.
