The steps to planning a wedding are not for the faint of heart. While some live for Excel sheets and getting down to the nitty-gritty of sketching out their dream weddings, others, like our fashion director, prefer a small intimate affair with just their loved one. If you’re part of the latter group, you might be getting married at City Hall or jetting off on a vacay for a destination elopement. Either way, the question that might be ringing in your ear is, “What I’ll wear?!” Lavishly decked out or small cozy nuptials, your elopement wedding dress(es) deserves the spotlight to celebrate your special day.
So go ahead and check “finding the perfect elopement dress” off your list. We’ve rounded up the best elopement wedding dresses for you to find “the one.” And if you’re not a fan of dresses, there’s no need to fret, there are dazzling jumpsuits, pantsuits, and two-piece sets for perusing, too. You’ll discover options like full head-to-toe lace designs for romantic brides and laid-back one-tone styles for the minimalists: the more options, the merrier. Therefore, look no further, and browse the 17 elopement outfits to find yours.
