Get Eloped at a Bed and Breakfast and Leave the Hassles Behind

Mar 19, 2008
Given all that is involved in planning a large formal wedding, it's no wonder many people are choosing to elope. If you want to find a romantic and intimate setting, but not break the bank on expense, consider a bed and breakfast inn in your area. Not only are there some great options available, but the ready-made elopement packages can take a lot of the stress out of the equation.

In Westbrook, Conn., both the Angels Watch Inn and the Westbrook Inn B&B offer elopement specials. At the Angels Watch ceremonies can be performed on the grounds or inside the inn by the fireplace. There is also a gazebo and an arbor, not to mention the beachfront setting. The Westbrook Inn has a package that includes lodging in a Victorian room or in the secluded cottage. Ceremonies can be performed anywhere on or in the bed and breakfast. And, the package comes with photography, a justice of the peace, cake for two, champagne and fresh flowers.

Some Innkeepers Can Even Take Care of the Photography

The White Fence Bed and Breakfast in Stanley, Va., can even handle all of your photography. Innkeeper Sally Dixon is an accomplished photographer and packages come with high-res digital photographs. This B&B's elopement packages are ideal for private ceremonies for couples without guests.

Marry in a Manor

For an intimate ceremony with just two guests (additional guests are charged extra), visit Great Oaks Manor in Richmond, Texas. For a fraction of what regular weddings cost, couples can enjoy the honeymoon suite and a full breakfast at a romantic table for two the next morning. As part of the package, the ceremony includes a non-denominational minister, recorded music, and a wedding cake for four people, flowers, keepsake toasting glasses, choice of location for the ceremony (Grand Entry Hall with stairway, verandah or garden), coffee and punch.

Elope to the California Wine Country

Geyersville, Calif., in the Sonoma Wine Country is the setting for the Hope-Merrill House. Check into the Peacock Room with its whirlpool tub for two and a fireplace. The elopement package ($2,700) comes with a bouquet for the bride, champagne, wedding cake, and photography supplied by the innkeeper. Dinner for the couple is also supplied. Consider getting hitched on the grounds, in the parlor or by the fireplace.
