8 Best All-Inclusive Elopement Package Options

 

Elopements and micro weddings continue to be a popular choice for recently engaged couples. Rather than running to City Hall, they’re taking advantage of some incredible elopement packages at hotels and other wedding venues around the globe. Now more than ever, couples are planning destination celebrations around scenic mountain ranges, cliffside beaches, luxury island resorts and foreign cities. Talk about a way to cross off that bucket list trip!

 

All-inclusive elopement packages can make things easy when it comes to wedding planning. Rather than dealing with all of the details that a traditional wedding calls for, most packages will include most of the necessary arrangements and help you avoid any added stress. So you’re curious about the best elopement packages out there? We’ve put together a quick list below with some options to consider.

Elopement packages can include photography, officiants, planning, day-of assistance, permits/fees, hair & makeup, floral packages, and more!

What are elopement packages and what do they include?

 

Once you’ve made the decision to elope, you might be wondering where to start when it comes to planning. Typically elopement packages will be offered by destination wedding venues and elopement planners, and will include everything that you need to get married (in whatever destination you choose) for a specific price. Some of the items that are usually included in these packages are: 

  • Photography
  • An officiant
  • Any necessary permitting fees
  • Food for the couple (and guests for micro weddings)
  • Hotel Accomodations and Resort Activities
  • Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist
  • Floral Package
  • Transportation To and From the Airport

Most couples enjoy these advantages of booking an elopement package as it makes things easy! Each venue or location will have their own package for what works best with their venue. So if you’re looking to customize aspects of your elopement, be sure to communicate this on the front-end to confirm it’s possible at your venue. In most cases, these packages include more than most couples need, so they are able to just show up on the day and enjoy every moment with their fiancé. 

How much is a destination elopement package?

 

To be honest, elopement packages vary greatly depending on the location you are considering and the length of your stay. But on average, most standard packages range from $1,000-$4,000, while all-inclusive Caribbean resorts and luxury properties may offer packages anywhere up to $20,000. Here’s a few of our favorite locations with more information on what’s included and pricing options!
