It’s No Secret…

Traditional weddings are incredibly expensive and can take years to plan. When couples choose to elope, their ceremonies can be planned quickly at a fraction of the cost. But don’t take our word for it!

I cannot recommend Simply Eloped enough, they have answered every silly little question that I had and kept us informed at every level. I would recommend Simply Eloped Again and Again.

Kelly and Lee

We are truly grateful for how wonderful the services were. Stress free on a beautiful day I will always cherish. Thank you so much for making it amazing!

Jenny and Mauricio

I am so happy that we chose Simply Eloped for our ceremony! We had to literally plan our ceremony in two weeks, and Simply Eloped was able to accommodate us on extremely short notice.

Stephanie and Oliver

Julia and Chris

A friend recommended Simply Eloped. She and her husband had a wonderful experience and said everyone was so kind.

Kayla and Dalton

Everyone was really flexible and changed things around 2 days before which we really appreciate!! The wedding wouldn’t have been nearly as good without their flexibility. Karin was very nice and responded to emails quickly. She was also very helpful!

Jordan and Leonardo

They were affordable, and so easy to use, very informative.

Rachel and Hayden

How to elope in Georgia

From its sprawling farmlands and undeveloped beaches to its museums and mansions, Georgia runs the gamut when it comes to elopement destinations. Whether you’re keen on the glitzy Atlanta skyline, the rolling mountains to the north, or the southern comfort of Savannah’s cobbled streets, Georgia is home to some of the best places to elope east of the Mississippi River.

Tybee Island’s wide, sandy beaches and picturesque pier and pavilion make it a popular year-round destination. Whether you are eloping or planning a small Georgia wedding, this laid-back little island has a spot for you. To the north, the quaint Tybee Island Light Station was erected back in the colonial era and still stands tall today. The Tybee Island Pier and Pavilion boasts a large space for dancing and stellar sea views. For some classic southern charm, Chande Pines has it all. Less than an hour’s drive from downtown Savannah, this bucolic wedding venue has a meadow for ceremonies and a towering 3,200-square foot barn all enclosed in 50 acres of Georgia pines. Red Gate Farms has three gorgeous venues to choose from. In true southern style, you can elope beneath the canopy of a 300-year-old oak. For something a little bit southern with a modern twist, The Grainery is a grandiose space in a beautifully restored former storehouse with an open floor plan. If it’s the classic big red barn you seek, look no further than The Barn.


The Historic Dekalb Courthouse is located in Decatur, a few minutes from Atlanta. This landmark estate is all luxurious white marble and oversized windows. The elegant ballroom has plenty of space to accommodate your nearest and dearest. Seamlessly blending the old with the new, The B Suite is an intimate small wedding space with exposed brick and lofted ceilings. In the heart of Douglasville’s Historic Downtown District, The B Suite is a cozy, cool, and contemporary place to elope.

How much does it cost to elope in Georgia?

Georgia on the whole is a fairly affordable elopement destination, though some of its larger cities are more expensive than others. The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport is one of the more expensive airports in the US. However, a trip to Georgia for two people for one week costs on average $1,800. For comparison, that is half the price of a week on Oahu! Our Georgian elopement packages start from $450 and $460 for our simplest ceremonies in Savannah and Atlanta respectively. Our deluxe Oasis package in Atlanta is $2,500 and $2,700 in Savannah.

What do you need to elope in Georgia?

There is no waiting period in Georgia, so you can get married on the same day as you apply. If one of the applicants is a state resident, you can apply for your marriage license in any county Probate Court in Georgia. Both parties must go in person and bring a form of identification. If neither of you is a resident, you will simply need to apply in the county where your marriage will take place. You will need two witnesses to preside over your elopement ceremony. The basic fee for a marriage license is $56. This fee is reduced by $40 if you provide the court with proof of completion of a qualifying premarital education program. Certified copies of the marriage certificate are $10 each.

What time of year should I elope in Georgia?

While winters in the lower altitudes are cool and rainy in parts, summers are infamously hot, muggy, and plagued by the occasional warm-weather thunderstorm. Accommodations are at their most expensive during the summer season, too. The mildest months to visit Georgia are from March to May. Note that temperatures will vary across the state, from the varying landscapes of mountains in the north all the way to the Georgian coastline.

Why elope in Georgia?

From the rapids of the Chattahoochee River in Columbus to the rugged Appalachian Trail, this southeastern state is traversed by a wide variety of landscapes and nearly 50 delightful state parks. The Peach State is also steeped in history: retrace the steps of the country’s most notable civil rights leaders or admire the 18th and 19th-century architecture of Savannah, Georgia’s first city.
