Elopements are ideal for couples who don't want to bother with juggling florists, caterers, bands and wedding planners. No longer considered the spontaneous, run away-and-do-it-secretly events they once were, elopements  are going through a romanticized redefining lately.  Some couples simply prefer the ease of a short ceremony with a few friends and family to share in the celebration.
You're probably tuned in by now  if you go with the elopement, you might be dressing yourself differently than the traditional bride. Because elopements are usually far off  or even city hall affairs, they could happen on weekdays when government offices are open to perform rites.  Chances are you’ll be in a street-length suit or dress—possibly white but it doesn’t have to be. Any color or length is fine as long as you look good in it and feel special.  Whether or not you you go all out as a bride is your decision. Realize though you’ll be dressing for a lifetime of shared memories, so it’s worth the effort to opt for a few ‘bride’ touches here and there.

Hello, Amy-Jo,
Beautiful gowns! However, I suspect that a future bride, who intends to elope and be married in one of your gowns, should tell you of her intending elopement well in advance! I am certain your wonderful gowns are not made instantaneously.
I like very much like the Marilyn gown and the long gloves worn with it, and also the headpiece worn with the Ballerina Skirt.
I really continue to enjoy Bride Chic.
