COVID-19 has really done a number on the planet but people are still celebrating events that mean the world to them. Yes, traveling is not as simple as it was once, so eloping to a faraway destination is more a hassle than anything else, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t elope.

There are great alternatives all around you; nearby places you can still go and have a truly amazing and memorable experience. There’s never a need to travel halfway across the world when local elopement yields much the same wonderful experience.

Arguably the most wonderful thing about an elopement is it gives you the option of infusing it with your own energy, creativity, and personality. All you need are a few tips on how to make your elopement as memorable as you want, and we’ll help you out with that today.



  • Great local activities and sights

There is an urban myth that where you grew up has little to offer in excitement when compared to somewhere foreign and exotic, and while this may be true to a certain extent, it doesn’t mean your immediate surroundings are completely devoid of fun and excitement.

All you have to do is just look at it differently and in a new light; what would the local park look like if you added some bright decorations and used it for an elopement celebration? Or maybe that light forest that’s not too far? Don’t you think that’ll be a great elopement adventure? A museum, a theater, the beach, and even caves all make great places for elopement.


  • Local accommodations for elopements

Here’s a question: What’s one of the most exciting things about staying in a location far from home after eloping? The hotels, right? Everyone would want to experience what it feels like to lounge in a 5-star hotel but this is not necessary for you to have a great time.

The majority of American cities boast amazing hotels even if they’re not the most expensive or luxurious ones out there. These are all still great places to see and spend some quality time with the one who completes you. Better yet, arrange to have your elopement there. It saves you money and you still have fun because your better half is always right there with you.
