Recently a video went around social media explaining how weddings in the United States are significantly more expensive than European weddings. We spend so much money on large weddings that the cost of a wedding can equal the down payment on a house or the entire cost of a new car. When you think about the costs of weddings like this, you may not want to have a wedding at all. Is it worth it when you are paying off a home loan or an auto loan? Even though you may not want to spend a small fortune on a wedding, it is still important to have a ceremony and celebrate your love. A great way to do this with a very low budget is to look for Virginia elopement packages. Eloping is naturally more affordable because it is more spur of the moment, so there are fewer details and fewer people invited. Eloping has an added benefit of requiring a lot less planning, which reduced the amount of stress involved in the wedding. Because of the low-stress and low-cost of an elopement, this type of wedding has become extremely popular, but a lot of people do not know what to expect from an elopement package. This is where we’ll be able to help you with some valuable information.
Virginia elopement packages are available at many venues. One of the most popular sites for eloping is a bed and breakfast. When you have an elopement at a B&B, some advantages come with the venue. Typically, an elopement package offered by a B&B will include the entire facility including each of the rooms. Ideally, you would be able to offer each of your guests a room in the B&B. This makes it easy for you because you and your guests can eat, drink, and be merry, then retreat to your rooms on site at the end of the night. No need to concern yourself with drinking too much and getting in trouble for drunk driving, and no need to worry about upsetting other guests because you are the only ones. This is a special benefit that comes with a B&B, but there are other things that you should expect from all Virginia elopement packages.
Elopement packages should be pretty straight forward. The venue should provide you with a list of preferred vendors to pick from – florists, caterers, musicians/DJs, etc. From this list, you can choose which ones you want to use for your ceremony. Depending on how simple you want everything to be, you may decide not to use a florist or a DJ. Once you pick the vendors you want, you will contact them, tell them the date and time, then everything is pretty much set. The vendors will be familiar with the venue, and they will be able to set up with very little instruction on the day of your elopement.
