If you’re planning an intimate elopement and are looking for celebration alternatives to a traditional reception, might we suggest a cozy elopement picnic? Picnics are the perfect way to celebrate and toast to the promises you made to each other without too much fuss or planning needed. A soft blanket, a few candles, your favorite assortment of foods, and a bottle of champagne are really all you need! (Of course, you could always go more elaborate if that’s your style.) These elopement picnic ideas take us from the mountaintops to the riverbanks and even indoors, showing us all that a picnic is a dreamy way to celebrate saying “I do!”
