Elopement Venue Ideas


I have had my heart set on eloping at The Gastonian for the last year but after we booked it we got some iffy customer service that left us both with a bad taste in our mouths and so now I am looking for somewhere else, similar ish maybe? I know there are a ton of BBs that offer elopement packages but does anyone have experience working with a elopment planner who has their own package? We want to get married the week of christmas this year and so it is just going to be us and I cannot make up my mind on which direction to go, another BB package or trying to piece it together myself. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! 


Re: Elopement Venue Ideas

  • Try the Kehoe House, The Hamilton-Turner Inn, the Mulberry Inn and the Forsyth Park Inn.  I don't think I would totally give up on the Gastonian if you love it.  They may have been having an off time.  I've never known them to have bad service.

  • If you love the Gastonian, is there any way you can work with someone else there?  Sometimes it's the person, not the venue/services.  Not everyone is cut out to be in customer service or the wedding industry and you may have just come into contact with one of those people.

    I can't help you with any of the Inns, as we used a square and had a lunch reception at Vic's.  However, we had a HORRIBLE coordinator who owns a company that does elopements so if you're considering hiring a coordinator/company, send me a message first and I'll tell you who to avoid so you don't get your money stolen and end up with dead flowers and a coordinator who calls you names and "forgets" to book part of your wedding package.
