We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:
We love planning intimate weddings and elopements because both of us actually had small weddings ourselves! There were things on our wedding day that we were not happy with and we never wanted anyone else to experience the same. With Elope Tampa Bay we’ll see to it that you have personalization on your wedding day, that you have a cake cutting, champagne toast, and first dance. We’ll make sure you have THE BEST photographers and videographers to capture your intimate moments. Even though you’re small, you’ll be treated as a large upscale wedding. We understand and want nothing but the best memories for you because we’ve been in your shoes and know what it’s like.
What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:
Melanie and Emily both started out in this industry as full-service wedding planners. When we started thinking about offering elopements and smaller weddings, there were a few things that we felt like people just couldn’t miss out on. Weddings on average start at over $30,000 in Florida. However, we believe you should still be able to have a beautiful ceremony, cherished memories, and photos to share with friends and family without the hefty price tag.
The idea of doing a small cake cutting and champagne toast may not seem like a big deal to everyone but I think bringing some of the main elements of a larger wedding, but just a smaller scale really puts a nice touch on things. It makes it so people just really don’t feel like they are missing out on having a big wedding.
We have never heard a couple tell us that they regret having a small wedding or elopement. In fact, if anything we hear the opposite. People who stress over a large-scale wedding and go into debt will tell us they wish they would’ve just eloped. We can tell you that we are so passionate about this business and love making people feel special at their “intimate” wedding. Are you ready to elope in Florida? We can’t wait to help you make your wedding day unforgettable!
All-inclusive ceremony packages start at $2,000.
Elope Tampa Bay Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we've personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay's most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren't created by fake accounts.
John and I are from New Jersey, but I have lived in Tampa for over ten years, and John has been here almost two years. Many of our extended family members live back home, and John's family is huge, so when we tried to plan a traditional wedding it became overwhelming and costly. It felt like it wasn’t about us anymore, and with our personalities being more low-key, homebodies, we wanted to do something that was more intimate, that reflected us. We thought about a courthouse wedding, but it didn’t feel personal, and we really wanted to share the day with the people who mean the most to us in our lives.
Once we stumbled upon the Elope Tampa Bay girls, we knew it was the perfect happy medium for us. After speaking to Melanie, we both felt a calmness and an excitement we hadn’t felt during the entire search for our perfect planner, so we went with our gut, and we are so happy we did!
We can’t say enough great things about Elope Tampa Bay. They were so thoughtful and helpful from the first email all the way through the end of our wedding. They took care of all the planning and hired our vendors. All we had to do was provide our favorites from flowers, to cake, to music, and they really brought my vision to life!
I came across Elope Tampa Bay on Instagram, and I thought the concept was so great. The selection of venues and pricing was almost too good to be true. So much so that I actually decided not to commit after my initial conversation with Emily and Melanie because my head was spinning in a million directions at the time. I think I had a little bit of PTSD and was afraid to get my hopes up about a real wedding again!
Emily and Melanie, wedding planners with Elope Tampa Bay, are truly the sweetest people and a huge part of the reason that we were able to be excited about moving forward with the elopement-style wedding. They listened to my concerns and our budget and literally took all of the work out of my hands instantly. They never pushed us to spend more and actually helped us get a discount with the venue as well as provided a military discount. It was the first time in the entire wedding planning process that I truly felt at ease and like everything was going to work out. I didn't have to worry about a single thing, and it felt so good!
I was really obsessed with customizing my bouquet from the beginning of wedding planning, which was another thing that sold me on Elope Tampa Bay. They allowed me to pick whatever flowers I wanted and from multiple sizes. I sent a few example pictures from Pinterest and their florist literally killed it with what she put together! I loved it so much. I always knew I wanted burgundy protea and blue thistle in my bouquet when I was planning our autumn wedding in the Midwest, so this helped me incorporate a little bit of my original wedding theme into our new plans.
Honestly, due to the timing of it all, we were looking for a planner who had availability and was up for the challenge to plan and execute with about nine days of notice with Christmas smack in the middle of the date! It was also important to have someone who was a good listener with resources and connections around the area!
We hired Elope Tampa Bay because of the connection that we felt after our first consultation. I talked to them on the phone and was smiling from ear to ear, so we knew it was a perfect match!
We looked for a team that has their couple first. Our vow renewal was such an easy, special, and romantic event made possible by Elope Tampa Bay. They were with us communicating every step of the way and also making it a relaxing, enjoyable event that Cammarn and I will cherish for many years to come. We hired them for a positive attitude and professional demeanor. These women are incredible. Down to the florals and cake, they put our vision to reality, without asking us one million questions. We felt heard and understood, and what they created proved that they know how to take your ideas and dreams and make them into a reality! I would not have any event without them guiding me each step of the way. Melanie and Emily are remarkable and created such a beautiful renewal for Cammarn and me.
