The Cost

It's no secret that weddings are expensive which means many couples are deciding to forgo the traditional large wedding experience and embrace the idea of an elopement. Savannah is already a budget-friendly destination (especially during shoulder seasons like summer & winter), so why not save on your destination AND your wedding? Whether you simply want to pay for a marriage license and an officiant - or you want to work with a local business like Savannah Elopement Package to give you all the wedding trimmings for a fraction of the price - Savannah can work with your budget.
