3 Great Reasons to Have a Small Wedding or Elope

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Elopement, Small Weddings, Tuscany Venue


Our couples LOVE the fact that getting married is so easy at the Tuscany Gallery. Yes, they love the fact that while it is all inclusive, they still have the ability to customize their bridal bouquet, ceremony readings and cake design.  But there is a lot more to the beauty and simplicity of a Tuscany Gallery Wedding.  And our adventurous couples enjoy the flexibility of total creativity.

Reason #1:  They don’t have to stress out about planning the perfect larger wedding/reception.  No hours and hour spent addressing and designing invitations with envelopes, no days spent visiting and getting quotes from florists and comparing one to another, and no more money wasted on meals for people you haven’t seen in years, and hardly know.  Time is spent being together and having fun.

Reason #2:  Forget about family dramas.  You don’t have to please certain family members, and you don’t have to invite all the family members.  You save money and have a much better time by inviting the people that mean something to you, and people that you care about.

Reason #3:  Take all that money you are saving and buy a house or plan a honeymoon trip to a favorite destination – could be Italy or Paris with the money you save!

A marriage is just really all about the two of you coming together as a couple.

How to Elope Right Here in St. Louis/St.Charles at The Tuscany Gallery

Today’s elopements are no longer like the old “run away”, find a judge and tie the knot, or say “I Do” at City Hall.

There are several ways couples elope at Tuscany Gallery:

The simply “I DO” brief ceremony is quick, easy, and very inexpensive.  It can happen any day of the week.  You can wake up on Monday and say, “Let’s get married”.  You get your license (up to 30 days in advance at any county in Missouri) and give us a call to perform your ceremony.  That’s it.  You need two witnesses, but we will help you take care of that.  You can bring family or friends, but usually it’s just the two of you.


Some couples plan their “elopement” a few weeks or months in advance.  Some brides buy a bridal gown, the groom may dress in a suit, and they generally invite their closest friends and family.  It’s like a small wedding with flowers, cake, and sometimes a light reception meal as well.  Lots of couples who have been married before love this small, intimate wedding (elopement) and lots of couples with children from previous marriages like this as well.  It’s a special event, practical in price, and memorable to make it fun.


If you’re not a big planner, or don’t have the time to plan a big wedding, eloping or a small, intimate wedding is so simple.  Everything is done for you except to plan what you are going to wear, the license, and the rings.  Many of our packages include champagne, a wedding cake, and beautiful bridal bouquets & boutonnieres.  Some include a reception with catered meal.
