FAQ about eloping in Paris

Check the most common questions our couples have before they decide to elope in Paris. Feel free to contact us for further information.

As we state before, our Paris elopement ceremonies are purely symbolic, meaning that they have no legal value. The idea here is that due to heavy paperwork, rules and translations issues in a foreign country, we suggest to couples to have the paperwork done at home and come to Europe to celebrate fully their love. Our specialty is the celebration of love, but not the paperwork. You can see Pierre explaining this in this video.

Our Paris elopement ceremonies are totally personalised. They can either be spiritual or not at all. They are designed to meet your beliefs. Any God is welcome as well as an atheist or… In that sense, Love Gracefully is a secular company that embraces all beliefs and all non-beliefs. But our officiants are not priests, nor pastors, nor rabbis.
Would you want a religious ceremony, depending on the city, we could direct you to a local church. It’s very rare as many European priests do not speak English. So, what we recommend is that, if you want a religious ceremony in Europe, to let us, at Love Gracefully, create a spiritual ceremony that will be celebrated in an exquisite outdoor location.

We do understand your concern in the event of rain if you want to elope in Paris. Since we always work outdoors, we have the expertise on what to do in case of rain; we spend a lot of time looking at weather forecasts. And after more than 400 ceremonies, here is what we’ve learned:

  1. It’s an issue to take seriously;
  2. Weather forecasts are not very accurate;
  3. Best to wait 48 hours to 24 hours before D-day to make a final call on what to do;
  4. We have a plan B, protected from the rain, ready to go.
  5. If it rains a little bit we can wait for it to stop
  6. If the weather gets extremely bad and our vendors are available, we are flexible and we can try to move the ceremony to another time or day. Only if vendors and officiant are available.

Our 10 years of experience at Love Gracefully in organizing elopements in Paris have taught us one thing about what to wear during an elopement in the city of love: wear what makes you feel comfortable! Why? At the end of the day, this is your elopement. If you come all the way to Paris to elope, it’s because you don’t want the traditional wedding at home, you want something special, something that is you! So our advice is for you to wear what makes you feel the most yourself.

Of course, during the elopement ceremony, you want to look good for your honey and you want to look good on the pictures. That’s a given. But if you don’t like what you wear, you won’t look good on the inside and that will show on the outside. Trust us on that: Love Gracefully has celebrated now over 1000 elopements and we have spotted that over and over. How many brides spent months in preparation on their outfit to finally not be comfortable walking in it on the ceremony day? Not sure, but a lot!

Have 2 pairs of shoes for your eloping day. One pair for the pictures, one for walking. In an elopement in Paris, you stand, you walk, some streets are cobblestones: you want to have a comfortable pair of shoes to walk in!

White is great, white is pure, white is classy, white is traditional, white is pretty but white is not a must to elope in Paris. If you don’t like white, there are a lot of other colours out there for you! In all cases, we would suggest very strongly not to buy it nor rent it in Paris, but to do that at home because, at home, you can take your time, you can ask for support from friends or family, and it’s done in your own language. In Paris, you’ll be in a rush, maybe alone, dealing with people who speak French and not English: Oh la la! The process of choosing your elopement dress, trying it on, making the adjustments can take weeks so, please, do this at home and relax!

If you don’t take into account what kind of weather you’ll have for your Paris elopement before you choose what to wear, you are making a big mistake! We have seen brides wearing very light dresses, showing their beautiful skin but freezing as it was in the middle of the winter… So, don’t hesitate to write to us and we’ll help you with that. We are not gods and won’t be able to tell you if you’ll have sun or clouds but we can tell you about the temperature!

Do not worry too much about that. You could read on the internet that some colors don’t work for elopement or wedding photos. But at Love Gracefully we work with top professional Paris elopement photographers who produce awesome pictures, independently of what you wear.

It’s commonly thought that it’s easier for men than women to pick their elopement outfit. Well, yes and no. Men do care and during your elopement in Paris, you want to feel good, look good and make your bride happy. So, yes, it’s easier because you don’t have to wear only white; you have many more colors to choose from and no, it’s not easier as you want to look good but still be yourself. Some men don’t like suits and ties. Well, the good news is that you don’t have to wear a suit or a tie. You can but it’s not a must. Paris is a city of fashion and style. Men in Paris can look very good without a suit or a tie.

If you elope in Paris with Love Gracefully you will have the experience of a lifetime. We create unique ceremonies that are customized just for you. From the ceremony text that we will write just for you to the location of your ceremony, everything will be made for you to feel on top of the world. That’s why it’s so important that you wear what makes you feel comfortable during your eloping in Paris. Of course, you want to look good and you will, but most important is for you to wear what you like. For once in your life, dare to be you, dare to wear what you like because you’ll only get married once and the day of your elopement will be the first day of the rest of your lives together!
