Creative Ways to Announce Your Elopement!

Whether your elopement is a surprise, or if everyone is in the know, elopement announcements are a fun way to share the good news with everyone you love. Here are the most popular and creative ways to announce your elopement.

Elopement Announcement Ideas

Video call your friends and family as soon as you say “I do!” 

If you don’t have cell service, go ahead and record a video instead. Making your announcement at the exact spot that you said “I do” helps share your experience with those you care about. Turn the camera around and share your views, and don’t forget to let them know that even though they aren’t present today, you are carrying them in your thoughts on your wedding day.

Record individual, more personalized videos for family members or friends who might feel a little bit left out!

Make a sign!

Pose with a sign that says “We eloped!” and ask your photographer to include the image in your sneak peek so that you can mail/text/or post the good news right away! 

Printed elopement announcement cards take a bit longer, but are a great way to include a registry link or a personalized note. (Older family members especially will love having a print to display.)

If you want to bask in all of your reacts at once- post your announcement to social media as soon as you get that sneak peek! Don’t forget your hashtags: #wedidthething! #surprise! #weeloped #justmarried #weddingday are the most popular.

More great elopement announcement sign ideas:

  • Inscribe “Mr & Mr” “Mr & Mrs” “Mrs & Mrs” or “Mx & Mx” on a pair of balloons, cupcakes, puppy dogs (!!), custom embroidered jackets, or whatever flavor of Etsy paraphernalia does it for you!

Some other phrases to use for your elopement announcement are:

“We do, we did, we eloped!”
“We said yes!”
“So, this happened”
“We tied the knot!”

And of course the classic “Just Married” works wonderfully too!

Tip: For mountain elopements, include the elevation of where you said “I do.”


Sneak peek previews of your elopement photos are pretty standard, and you can download these, set them to music, and play them at your elopement reception!

Wild Earth Weddings

You know, the one that always reminds you to bring extra socks on the overnight hike, and who definitely has the best podcasts queued up for the road trip.

From dreaming to planning, to the big day and after, I lend you my experience, my best ideas and inspiration, my favorite and most breathtaking locations, and the all cheering-on you need.

I create the space for you to feel easy, relaxed, and EXCITED as you treat yourselves to one heck of an adventure together.

More than epic photography

I believe that big weddings aren’t the right fit for everyone, and that your wedding day is an opportunity to do something different, something wild, and something completely unique.

I also believe that connecting with the earth connects you to your partner, and that wedding vows (and photos) are extra magical in the majestic landscapes of the American West.
