Now more than ever, couples are getting creative when it comes to saying “I do,” whether it’s with a city hall ceremony or a small backyard celebration. Another special, intimate way to celebrate your love? By taking advantage of the elopement packages many hotels and wedding venues offer.

But elopement packages have always been a fabulous, jetsetter-approved way to tie the knot, with wanderlusters opting to elope in far-flung locations in lieu of dealing with all the exasperations and expenses that planning a traditional wedding often bring. So, what are the best elopement packages, you ask? Here’s a comprehensive list we put together.

The 9 Best Elopement Packages of 2020

The Resort at Paws Up: Best Overall

The Resort at Paws Up

Let your love reach new heights with mountainside nuptials in Greenough, Montana. There, you’ll find The Resort at Paws Up. With more than 37,000 acres of wilderness framed by a sprawling mountain range, it’s trademarked as having all the adventure of a national park, with added, exclusive retreats and top-notch service.

From tricked-out tree houses and glamping tents to secluded cabins, the accommodations here are private and decadent. And, with activities like hiking (there are more than 100 miles of trails on the property), horseback riding, stargazing, white water rafting, snowmobiling, and even helicopter tours, guests can take advantage of the lush landscape—which also makes for a beautiful backdrop for an elopement.

Clocking in at about $10,300, the resort’s “Montana-Style Elopement Package” allows you to wed in the wilderness, beside a river’s lapping waters, or in one of the property’s private indoor rooms. Included is a ceremony, wildflower bouquet(s) and/or boutonnière(s), a wedding cake, a private dinner complete with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, and a relaxing couples spa treatment.

You’ll also get to—literally—ride off into the sunset with a romantic horseback or carriage ride, and spend four nights in a luxury cabin or glamping tent. An elopement and mini-moon in one? Where do we sign up?
