There’s never been a better time to elope …

Ever dream of your happily ever after to begin with some classic vows and only a handful of your core people? Maybe it’s just you and the love of your life? Or maybe, its a few more : like mom and dad; and of course your BFF since Kindergarten to stand as witness.

And when you’re thinking of your ideal wedding, the words intimate, sacred, and simple all come to mind. You don’t see a long walk down the aisle or standing in a receiving line for an hour while h’or d’ouerves are passed around. Rather, you may see a quiet morning before you head to city hall, followed by a brunch for ten people just after you take some photos to commemorate your forever union. Or maybe, it’s an evening affair where you, your bride/groom, and a select group enjoy a meal first, and then you exchange vows once the clock strikes midnight. If both of these scenarios excite you – you sound like the “elopement” type.

Like I said, there’s never been a better time to elope. 2020 is the year. Between social distancing, limited entry into venues, and gatherings no larger than 10 people during Phase 2, sneaking away to elope has never looked more favourable. Your extended family will understand why they weren’t invited. Your co-workers who expected an invite, won’t blink twice. Your parents won’t even try to invite their friends. Win. Win. And win.

Regardless of how you do it, your perfect wedding day – the elopement – will still be captured in photos. Those photos and videos will eventually announce your union on Facebook, maybe on an Instagram story, and even a TikTok – because you’re hip, right?! Your fiance will still be looking their absolute best – the best you’ve ever seen them and how you will forever want to remember them. You’ll still have the special dress with the comfortable but pretty shoes. And, let’s not forget – your hair and makeup will be absolutely f*cking perfect.

We want to help make this all possible for you. If you’re thinking of eloping this coming July or August 2020, we are offering makeup (with lashes!) and hair services for the bride plus one – whether that’s your mother, your maid of honour, or a witness for just $450 (HST included).This special package can be booked well-in-advance, or for the super-spontaneous ones, with as little as 48-hours notice. Appointments can be held at either one of our beauty studios (Toronto or Whitby), or on-location within the GTA. To book, you just need to start with an email ( or a phone call (416.727.1754).

You know, 2020 took us all way off course. LIKE WAY OFF. Maybe waiting until 2021 to get married is not an option for you. Maybe, you and your “Right One” during this whole pandemic realized life’s too short and decided now is the time. Whatever your reasoning for eloping in 2020 – the BlushPretty team wants to be right along side you making it happen. Just let us know how we can help …

Here’s to elopement season … xo

P.S. Crazy enough to wing your wedding, but not your makeup and hair? That’s okay – we get it – some things still need to be planned. If you’re hoping to have a preview of your bridal style, we are offering a trial run for the bride to be added to the package as well. This is best for those who have a slightly longer lead time before their elopement date.

P.P.S. We are also open to offering this amazing package to brides outside the GTA, though travel fees may apply. Please email to discuss!
