Elopement Announcement Wording

So you…hopped a plane to the tropics, sneaked down to the courthouse, did a drive-through in Vegas, got a passport to Paris? How romantic! Destination weddings and elopements are meaningful for the couple, but they are usually small events with few or no guests. Wedding Announcements and Elopement Announcements are a great way to let your friends and family share in your joy.

Still want a big celebration? Invite family and friends to a post-wedding bash! Invite them in a creative way by choosing an invitation that matches the style of wedding reception you’re planning or carries through the theme or atmosphere of the place you were married. Below you’ll find some great examples of different types of elopement announcement wording to help you get started!
