Here is a checklist for planning an Ohio elopement

Choose a location: Consider factors such as the size and style of your wedding, the type of scenery you want, and any specific requirements for your ceremony (e.g. a beach, a park, a courthouse).

Determine your budget: Elopements can be more budget-friendly than traditional weddings, but it's still important to have a clear idea of how much you can afford to spend.

  • Choose a date: Consider the weather, any holidays or events that may impact your plans, and the availability of your chosen location.

  • Secure your officiant: If you're planning a religious ceremony, contact your church or synagogue to discuss officiant availability. If you're having a non-religious ceremony, consider hiring a justice of the peace or other licensed officiant.

  • Invite your guests: Depending on the size and style of your elopement, you may choose to invite a few close friends and family members or keep it just the two of you.

  • Plan your attire: Decide on what you and your partner will wear, taking into account the location and theme of your wedding.

  • Arrange transportation: If you'll be traveling to your elopement location, consider how you'll get there and back.

  • Plan your reception: If you're having a reception after your ceremony, consider the size and style of your reception, the location, and any catering or entertainment needs.

  • Get your marriage license: Contact your county clerk's office to learn about the requirements for obtaining a marriage license in Ohio.

  • Hire a photographer: Consider hiring a professional photographer to capture your special day.

  • Finalize your plans: Make sure all of the details are taken care of, including any necessary permits or reservations.

  • Relax and enjoy your special day!

I'm! Excited to hear from you about your special day!
