Traditionally, an elopement wedding means marrying without your family or friends' knowledge in secret. However, nowadays, more couples choose to have a planned elopement, meaning family and friends are aware of their wedding but do not attend. Elopement wedding outfits are often viewed as more casual and relaxed compared to formal weddings, as the location of the ceremony may vary from mountain tops, to beaches, to a backyard. No matter the setting, or the situation, it is your wedding day. Thus, there are no rules about what you should wear; wear what feels right and comfortable! Today, we will share some of our favorite elopement-style wedding gowns to wear in any location.
A short, tea-length style gown is perfect for a dreamy elopement wedding on the beach or outdoors in nature. The short length works best for being outside, as it won't drag on the ground or catch on anything, and, not to mention, looks effortlessly whimsy and sweet! Our Alice bridal gown would look dreamy during those warm, balmy summer nights and won't be uncomfortable, as the style is lightweight and floaty. If you have your heart set on eloping during the summer, this gown is perfect for you!
An off-shoulder bridal gown is the quintessence of an elopement ensemble, as this style is undoubtedly elegant, romantic, and chic. This style looks breathtakingly gorgeous for an outdoor elopement and instantly has us reminiscing over spring and summer days. Our Belva blush mermaid wedding dress, with detachable overskirt, is perfect for achieving a glamorous style without the hassle! A removable overskirt allows the bride to create two looks in one; a voluminous look for the ceremony and a romantic look for the reception, perfect for just the two of you. If you desire an elegant elopement without all of the baggage (literally!), then our Belva wedding gown is the ideal option.
Long sleeve tiered gown.
Long sleeve wedding gowns with a dramatic layered effect look undeniably chic for eloping during winter. If you covet that Frozen fairytale aesthetic for your wedding, long sleeves are a must for keeping warm. Our Cherilyn tiered tulle ball gown would look majestic during the colder months, as the sheer long sleeves offer a practical element while also looking classy and stylish with lace detailing. A tiered ball gown skirt has us swooning! We can't imagine a more romantic gown than Cherilyn for tying the knot somewhere unique.
Even if you dream of eloping somewhere magical and memorable, far away from your hometown, we all want to feel like a princess, no matter where we are! Although eloping seems more 'laidback' than formal weddings, ball gowns are still a fabulous option for making an elegant statement. They can be easily dressed up or down, depending on your preferences. Our Kaytie A-line lace wedding gown is simply stunning. With captivating lace patterns from top-to-bottom and delicate details, this gown would look beautiful for an elopement wedding outdoors or indoors. A truly gorgeous piece, we can't imagine who wouldn't want to say 'I Do' adorned in this ensemble!
Striking and bold
There are no rules for your special day, so why not apply this to your bridal gown? Who says all wedding dresses should be white? We adore nontraditional, bold dresses with striking patterns for elopement weddings, as they look unique and are versatile and chic. Save costs on a second gown for your elopement after-party, and wear a colorful dress for the ceremony and reception! Our Lacye red and nude tulle gown radiates grace and femininity and would make for a show-stopping statement piece on your big day. The deep tones and leaf patterns have us dreaming of fall; how majestic!
Boho beach style
Nothing quite says elopement bride more than a boho, beach-style wedding gown. Boho styles are a classic go-to for eloping in, as they offer that care-free elegance and style brides crave! Our IngaLisa sheath beaded lace wedding gown achieves the most dreamy, bohemian style in a sophisticated, angelic way. Lace is also excellent for elopement weddings as this material does not crease easily; perfect for adventure-seeker brides! A sheath silhouette is a timeless favorite that will never go out of fashion. We adore this gown!
All these stunning gowns and styles will look enchanting for an elopement wedding and show endless possibilities when choosing the right dress for you!
