What exactly is an Elopement?

An elopement is a wedding ceremony in which a couple chooses to marry without the typical fanfare and formalities of a traditional wedding. This may involve just the couple, or it may include a few close friends or family members as well. Elopements are often more spontaneous and intimate than traditional weddings, and they often involve the couple traveling to a destination location to exchange vows. Some couples choose to elope because they want a more private and intimate celebration of their love, while others do so because they want to avoid the stress and expense of a traditional wedding. Elopements can take place in a variety of settings, from a rooftop with a city view to a sandy beach or a lush green mountain backdrop, and can be as simple or elaborate as the couple desires.

On average, eloping in Puerto Rico may cost on average $5000-8000. This cost doesn’t include expenses such as airfare, accommodations, transportation.

This process involves filling out an application, providing identification and other documentation, and paying a fee. Plus, you will need to hire a local officiant that is registered with the Puerto Rico Department of Demographic Registry.

Many couples prefer to get married in their home state and then have a symbolic ceremony in Puerto Rico and allowing them to skip the legal paperwork process altogether.

An elopement ceremony typically lasts around 15-20 minutes, although it can be shorter or longer depending on the couple’s preferences.

In total, an elopement celebration, including the ceremony and photo session, typically lasts around 3 hours on average. However, if you include additional events such as a cocktail reception, drinks, or dinner, an elopement celebration can last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours.

Again, the duration of an elopement celebration is up to the couple and what they envision for their special day. It is important to consider the details of your elopement, such as the location, the number of guests, and any additional activities or events you want to include, when determining the duration of your elopement celebration.
