How to choose a dress for an adventurous elopement

When planning an adventurous elopement, finding the perfect wedding dress can be a bit different from a traditional wedding. It's important to consider the location, weather, and your personal style. Here are some tips for choosing the perfect wedding dress for your adventurous elopement.

Your dress choice is important if you need to move around!

Comfortable and practical: Since an adventurous elopement usually involves hiking, climbing, or other outdoor activities, it's important to choose a dress that is comfortable and practical. Look for lightweight and breathable materials that allow you to move freely. Some breathable materials (though often hard to find in dresses) are: linen, cotton, tencel, hemp, merino wool, and high-quality chiffon.

Weather-appropriate: Consider the weather of your elopement destination and choose a dress that is appropriate. For instance, if you're eloping in a snowy mountain, you may want to consider a long-sleeved dress made of warm materials like merino wool.

Durable: An adventurous elopement can be rough on a delicate dress. Look for a dress that is made of durable and easy-to-care-for materials that can withstand the wear and tear of outdoor activities. Bonus points for a material that doesn't wrinkle easily, like crepe, lace, or silk tulle!

Personal style: Your wedding dress should reflect your personal style and taste. Don't be afraid to choose a dress that is unique and expresses who you are as a person.

Consider the location: The location of your elopement can also influence the type of dress you choose. For example, if you're eloping in a beach destination, you may want to consider a flowy, bohemian-style dress that matches the relaxed vibe of the location.

Accessorize accordingly: When choosing accessories, consider the style of your dress and the location. You may want to choose simple and minimalistic jewelry that won't get in the way of your outdoor activities.

Get it tailored: Lastly, make sure to get your dress tailored to fit you perfectly. This is especially important for an adventurous elopement where you want to be comfortable and able to move freely.

Remember, the perfect wedding dress for an adventurous elopement is one that reflects your style, is comfortable and practical, and fits the location and weather of your destination. Don't be afraid to choose something that is unique and special to you. And don't forget to bring some comfortable walking shoes!
