Whatever you want! Your elopement timeline is basically a run down of your ideal day together.
I know this can seem like too broad of a concept so let’s break it down.
What would two do if you could anything in the world to create your perfect date day together?
Would you go hiking? Would you take a nap? Would you play laser tag? Would you cuddle by a campfire? Would go scuba diving?
I’m here to help plan your most perfect day together, no matter where that takes us!
All I need is a region you would like to go (example: Western US) or even more specific, or the type of scenery (example: Mountains with water) and some activities you want to do! From there, I’ll go into research & planning mode to. Find the perfect ceremony location and craft your customized timeline to create your absolutely perfect elopement day!
As you can see, there’s tons of ideas out there. I recommend thinking about what you two could do if you could do anything in the world for a day (or two!). Your elopement really can be whatever you want and include as much or as little if you want. So sit down with your fiance and start brainstorming your perfect day together!
