Ivory Cotton-Lace Dress

Wedding On A Whim?

Are you the sort of bride-to-be who’d just like to pack a weekend bag, grab your partner, and hit the road to matrimony — literally?

Or who wants to avoid a wedding with a ham-carving station and a Dj whose name ends with a “z”?

Or who wants to be lawfully wed by a salty sea captain with a barnacled peg leg?

Then we've got the dress for you.

Introducing the limited-edition Elope Dress, the charter member of Betabrand’s new women’s collection. It's a gorgeous, cotton-lace garment designed especially for unconventional nuptials.

Running off to a beach in Mexico, a wedding chapel in Vegas, or just down to city hall? No matter where in the world you choose to exchange vows, rest assured the Elope Dress is a cinch to pack and travels like a dream.

And unlike unlike regular wedding dresses, you can wear it more than once. Much more.

Slip it on for your honeymoon, anniversary, or a thousand other special occasions. Want to switch up shoes and accessories? With a trio of different sashes, that's no problem.

Our new Elope Dress: When "I do" means "I do not want to wait around, so let's get hitched already!"

And the price? Under $200, which is probably less than that electroplated wedding-cake topper your mother had her eye on.
