How to Find the Perfect Venue
Finding the perfect venue should start by deciding which Destination location you could envison yourself saying 'I do' at. 
Some couples dream of getting married on a mountaintop others on a beach or in central park. 
Once you decide you can ask your planner for any suggestions of venues that Destination Elopements has worked with. 
We want our couples to have choices and our planners will assist you in gathering the right information in order to
meet your vision of location and your budget. 
Plan on budgeting up to $2500.00 for a venue if you are hosting a ceremony and reception for four to six hours of time though many of our clients book only two hours hosting only a ceremony and champagne toast then head off to a restaurant for dinner. 
We have venues that start  at $750.00 for two hours of time and your final venue price will be determined by your guests count and how many hours you are booking. 
So why plan a micro-wedding? Well the answer is simple. Most of our clients have a budget of five to six thousand dollars  and we assist them in planning something beautiful, elegant and memorable and let's face it it is better
than spending $30,000 for a wedding..
