Posted by Confête Staff on

Wedding planning is easily one of the most stressful aspects of what should be a joyous celebration. Some people love using Excel spreadsheets, hunting for the best vendors, and expertly placing seating arrangements for the perfect event. Others want to skip the guestlist and take a trip with just their loved one for a more intimate celebration.

If you’re planning an elopement, you might be wondering what to wear for your special day. First and foremost, your elopement outfit should reflect who you are and what you like to wear. There are tons of options available to you – from mini dresses and gowns to jumpsuits and sets. If you’re more comfortable in a structured jumpsuit than a dress with a train, then go for it! This is all about what you like to wear and how you want to look on your special day.

Check out our recommendations for elopement attire that will make you feel fabulous on the day you say “I do.”

Mini Dresses

The first category on our list is mini dresses. Short, sweet, and chic, these dresses will give you the freedom to move and dance the night away. It is also a wonderful option if you’re planning on jet-setting to your elopement location and don’t want to worry about stuffing a large gown into your suitcase.

We love the Rosie One Shoulder White Mini Dress for its simplicity and the tuxedo-style bow detail at the front. The Reem Silky Mini Dress with Rhinestone straps is another great option if you want a dress that stands out. For a bit of texture and drama in your elopement outfit, the Waldorf Tulle Mini in Cream is the perfect option. Pair your mini with some simple accessories and let the dress speak for itself.

Dresses with Overskirts & Trains

Just because you’re planning an elopement doesn’t mean you need to wear short or simple elopement attire! If you love to make a dramatic entrance and want your dress to make a statement, take a peek at our collection of dresses and sets that have overskirts and trains.

The Monroe Bridal Romper with Train is a great option for this – we love the tulle and 3D floral train. The bustier top adds a contemporary, sassy flair. We also recommend the Eden Rock Mini Dress for an elopement outfit that’s playful and fun. The oversized bow and flowing train are two features that we love about this dress!

Long Gowns

Long gowns are always a good option – they’re a classic for a reason. If you want something simple and understated, we recommend the Carter Gown, which is a sleek dress with a high slit at the thigh. The Protea Gown is a new take on the ball gown dress as it has a structured bodice and a high-low skirt style. One of our favorite elopement outfits is the Palmetto Bow-Tie Shoulder Gown. We love it for its timeless and tailored design! Any of these options would make for stunning elopement attire.

For a less traditional look, jumpsuits really make a statement. That’s why we recommend our Strapless White Tuxedo Jumpsuit. This option has a fitted bodice and wide-leg pants. We think it’s a super elegant bridal look! The Greer Ivory Silk Jumpsuit is another classic jumpsuit with a modern twist. We love the jogger-style pants and the peek-a-boo tie top. Pair this with some special occasion jewelry or a sophisticated hair accessory for the ultimate elopement outfit.

Jumpsuits are a wonderful and practical option for non-traditional brides. Dance to your heart’s content, feel free to move, and stay comfortable in your elopement attire. The wide-leg pants on our favorite jumpsuits elongate your silhouette and give you legs for days!
