Elopements are a lot different from traditional things because they are known to be traditional and super unique. For those that don’t know, an elopement is an intimate wedding that takes place out of state and outside of a wedding venue. Elopements can be held in national parks, beaches, and many other places.

So, what do you wear? Well, lucky for you, I have curated three tips to complete your elopement look and help you figure out the perfect things to add to your outfit. If you are ready to see the fun ideas I have come up with be sure to keep on scrolling for more.

Faux flowers

There are many bouquets that you can find online. I shot an elopement in Tennessee two years ago and she had a wooden bouquet. I was shook. I seriously thought it was real until I got up close to photograph it! AND they won’t wilt or die so you can cherish them forever!

Wear your hiking boots or your comfiest shoes!

Who really sees and pays attention to your shoes on your wedding day other than your photographer when she or he is photographing them? I changed into my crocs at my reception and everyone freakin’ loved it. 😏

Colored attire

If you are going to elope, you might as well have colorful attire! You can wear a colored wedding dress, or even have your groom wear a colored tux. This is super fun and a unique way to add your personality to your elopement.

If you are thinking about booking with Kim, JUST DO IT!!! You WILL NOT be disappointed!!! Kim was quick to respond when I messaged her about needing a photographer for engagement photos and for our wedding next summer! She got to know my fiancé and I and our engagement are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS and it was a total blast! She had us cracking up the entire time and we truly felt ourselves around her. She had our engagement photo gallery back to us in a couple days (SO much quicker than I expected!!!). Kim has been an absolute joy to work with so far and I cannot wait to for her to work her magic at our wedding in July! I am SO glad we chose Kim and I would recommend her a million times again 💗
