Believe it or not, some little girls simply do not dream of their wedding day at age 4. Some couples just do not want the hassle of a big wedding. Whether it is a financial issue, a family conflict, an anxiety trigger, or any other reason – a lavish wedding is not a necessity when saying “I do”.
Some may think of an elopement as an unplanned escape. They picture Vegas or Mexico or just a courthouse. Elopements have developed, however, into their own creative moments for couples. How do you do a Lake Geneva elopement? So glad you asked.
A perfect spot for the one is at Geneva National Resort. I know, it is gorgeous and grand and large – none of which screams “let’s elope here”. But just as the staff is dedicated to their large events, they also care greatly for their smaller more intimate arrangements. A small family get together in one of their elaborately beautiful inns and will enjoy a perfect setting. Underneath soft, sweeping trees you can say your vows with minimal attendees. The interior has ample room for a relaxed cocktail hour as well as lower areas for a nice dinner. The inns themselves provide large rooms, individual suites, and the perfect common area for guests to linger even if it is only 5 or 6 people. However, these Inns can accommodate much larger groups so feel free to inquire for a larger than average elopement guest count.
They are also quite open to having your event any day of the week. If you have a party of 10 and wish to do a simple elopement on a Thursday in October as the leaves change color and fall, imagine the thousands that you will save in cost as well as being able to have a completely stress free wedding day.
