Does COVID-19 have you going crazy? Are you thinking about putting off your wedding until God knows when? Well, most of the weddings that we’re part of these days aren’t happening at venues.
These are special times We’re living in. Most couples have come to realize that they don’t have to put their lives on hold. They don’t need to have a big wedding at an expensive venue to have an awesome experience. In fact, most of the ceremonies we are doing are being done at local Parks, backyards, rooftops, and virtually. The fact is that some of the most stunning weddings can be done right in your own neighborhood.
If you decided that waiting for a traditional venue is not an option and you are up for a little challenge. I have some great news! This decision can give you a lot more freedom, and it can also let you spend your money on more important things. It doesn’t matter if you want to get married in San Diego, New York City, or New Jersey, every town has lots of free parks just waiting to be used.
You’ve probably already spent a lot of time searching the internet. Looking at wedding blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, and even looked at different venue locations to get ideas for your wedding. Venues are great for their convenience and efficiency. However, I believe that it feels even more special when you find a location that’s unique to your story.
An elopement wedding works especially well when you’re looking for something intimate. One of our biggest priorities is helping you make this transition as stress-free as possible. We will provide you a list of local parks and give you some tips and advice to keep the cost down and still have that special feeling you are looking for.
You can find beaches, local parks, and those little hideaway spots that are perfect. The First things you need to do are:
- Make a list of what’s important to you and your fiancé.
- Then make a small list of the people that must be present. Remember to keep it as small as possible.
- If your list of guests is under 20, most local parks do not require you to get a permit as long as you do not put up any decoration.
- If your list is bigger than 20 or you want to decorate find the park authority and apply for a license with plenty of time.
- Afterward, you can go to a local restaurant with your guests to celebrate at a fraction of the cost.
We’ve helped a lot of our couples celebrate their weddings in an incredibly special way, and we want to offer a few suggestions of things we’ve learned over the years to anyone interested in making their wedding a moment that they will cherish for a very long time.
