Who says weddings have all the fun? Elopements have details too! Incorporating some traditional wedding details into your elopement not only gives you some keepsakes from your big day, but it can also help make your day feel more complete. Sprinkling in some details from stationery and bouquets to ceremony arches and vows is the perfect way to showcase your personal style and create a theme for your special day.
Stationery + Announcements
Wondering how to elope and still include your loved ones? Custom stationery and marriage announcements are the perfect way to share the news with friends and family and give them a special keepsake to hold onto. This is also the perfect opportunity to select a color palette and design that reflects your intimate ceremony. From bold fonts to dainty sketches of your venue and location, the possibilities are endless!
Bouquets + Boutonnieres
Who doesn’t love a little flower power? From cascading bouquets to dried boutonnieres, the options for floral details are limitless! Florals provide the perfect finishing touch and elevate any bridal look. Our tip? Gain inspiration from the landscape and use seasonal blooms to achieve the ultimate floral envy.
Bonus Tip: Your bouquet also makes for the perfect keepsake from your intimate day! Check out Forever de Fleur for how you can turn your bouquet into a custom keepsake!
Is there anything more romantic than personal, handwritten vows? Whether your vows are sentimental and intimate or full of inside jokes, vow books are the perfect place to write down all of the things you can’t wait to tell your fiancé. Plus, they serve as a beautiful, written reminder of your promises to one another for years to come!
Whether you and your fiancé elope alone on top of a mountain or in front of a few loved ones, ceremony arches serve as the perfect site marker to say “I do.” The best part? Your arch can be as unique as you! From floral arbors to boho rugs and pampas grass, the combinations are endless (just don’t forget to account for extra setup).

Feast + Fête
Celebrate with a reception that is as intimate as your ceremony! From charcuterie boards to champagne toasts, hors d’oeuvres add some grandeur to your special day. Plus, don’t forget about the dessert! Mini cakes made for two are the perfect way to celebrate saying I do! Not feeling a traditional cake? Instead, opt for a platter of macaroons, a tower of sprinkled donuts, or even a s’more bar!
Incorporating personalized details and custom touches to your elopement allows you and your fiancé to express your unique style and create precious keepsakes for years to come.
