safari elopement

An elopement is super romantic and just because it’s the two of you doesn’t mean you can’t have an elopement wedding in style. This safari elopement wedding inspiration board is one way to do that – and just imagine… after your gorgeous, stress-free wedding you can have an adventurous honeymoon as well!

One of the details I’m loving most in this safari wedding inspiration board is the bride’s shoes. If you look closely (click the inspiration board to expand it) – she’s wearing leopard print!

One thing I see a lot with safari themed weddings or elopements is that brides go a little overboard with the theme and add animal print to everything. To keep it classy use subtle touches like on the cake, shoes, and zebra pillow in this inspiration board. A little animal print goes a long way.

Details to adore:

  1. Yes, yes, definitely that Bride in that hat is a detail to adore! So pretty!

  2. Adore this idea! That cake is wonderful.

  3. We featured a safari elopement during the year and it was one of my favorite real features! Love this board- how incredible is that cake?!

  4. This is darling! The hat and the truck is so perfect!

  5. How fun! I love that you managed to make a safari so chic – brings to mind a daring 1930’s globetrotting couple!

  6. I love the very subtle hints of animal print, particularly the cake! It’s very unique and beautiful! Great board!

  7. I adore this! Kevin and I went on an African safari 4 years ago and ever since I’ve been drawn to anything safari related. I’d love to do a safari themed vow renewal. So I’m pinning this board for inspiration!

  8. That cake is fantastic!

  9. Gah, the leopard print shoes! Those are fantastic, especially with that dress and that hat! I love how this board feels natural rather than theme-y.

  10. Fantastic! Those shoes peeking out are just perfect. And I echo the comments about that cake!

  11. I have always wanted to go on safari and your wonderful board sparks the fire to do this, plus if I do I need a fabulous hat like the bride!
