A Unique & Memorable Wedding

Beautiful bride

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly thwarted wedding plans across the country over the past two years, which has resulted in increasing numbers of destination elopements and smaller, more intimate wedding celebrations.  We don’t foresee this trend reversing anytime soon, particularly as the cost of large traditional weddings has skyrocketed in recent years. 

Destination elopements have always been a special service offered by many Bed and Breakfasts and Boutique  Inns around the country, and it’s no different with Select Registry-branded properties. Many of our members provide not just beautiful, unique venues in which to say “I Do,” but they also offer curated wedding packages to ensure your day goes just as you envisioned. 

If you’re recently engaged and are looking for the perfect place to begin your new life together, then it’s time to consider the beauty and practicality of destination elopements at Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts. It’s here that you’ll experience a romantic and personalized union, unlike what you’d encounter anywhere else. 

From the east to west coasts, there are more than 130 Select Registry properties to choose from, with settings just as diverse as their locations. From sprawling country estates to dramatic seaside views, start browsing our Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts today to see just how magical destination elopements can be.

Why Should You Elope in 2022?

Whether you’re limited by crowd-size restrictions, distance, time, or money, there are a lot of reasons to forgo a large, traditional wedding in favor of a more intimate celebration or elopements.  Destinations elopements are grown increasingly popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. 

Have you found yourself wondering whether an elopement – or more specifically, destination elopements – are a good choice for you?  Here are a few reasons couples have chosen to go the smaller, more intimate route.

  • Elopements are inherently more intimate, often featuring just the couple and their closest family & friends – and sometimes just the requisite officiant and a photographer! You’ll have the time to focus only on each other.
  • The average cost of a wedding in 2020 ranged between $20-30,000 dollars, which is astounding!  You’ll spend far less than that with destination elopements at Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts!
  • You don’t have to worry about making time for all your guests and can instead spend the time making memories of your special day together. This often leads to a more meaningful experience for the couple. 
  • You can turn your wedding into an adventure!  Whether exploring somewhere new together or returning to a favorite destination, destination elopements offer you a unique experience and a fun way to kick off your life together.
  • Bridezilla’s no more!  You get to leave the stress of wedding planning behind, as our Innkeepers will be right there to help every step of the way. 

In a world where experiences are increasingly becoming more prized over materials, what better way to start your life together than beginning with an unforgettable experience? Moreover, planning destination elopements also allows you to seamlessly transition between wedding and honeymoon – thus giving you more time to fan the flames of desire and create lasting memories.
