Why can’t I bring more guests to an elopement? 

The simplest answer is that once you invite more than a few close relatives or friends… you are really having a wedding and it needs more care than we can give for the prices we offer. As the wedding industry has changed, the term “elopement” has lost its original meaning, which is a quick and secret wedding. We appreciate that, but for us, an elopement has (1) fewer than 6 guests (so we can use any downtown location in Savannah without a permit), and (2) requires no setup or structures (decorations, chairs, etc.).



That being said … if you are interested in the Savannah Elopement Experience… but have 10 guests, contact us and we can discuss that with you.



We do not count guests under the age of 13 in our guest numbers.
