Wedding Favor

An island inn that specializes in elopements



etting married really has become a full-time job these days – one for which the happy couple or their parents have to spend ages planning in order for it to be the perfect day. Now there’s an option which makes it so much simple: Go to an island (by a Jettly charter or by the humble boat) and elope! The Thorncroft Inn, on two and a half quiet Martha’s Vineyard wooded acres, specializes in spontaneous elopements and combination weddings and honeymoons.

It’s a romantic escape, where children are discouraged and many of the 14 rooms have private entrances, four-poster beds with lace canopies, wood-burning fireplaces, whirlpools, and balconies; one has a hot tub on a private screened porch. There’s even continental breakfast in bed (perfect for the morning after the wedding).

You’ll pretty much never have to leave the place. So forget the invitations and the bridesmaids’ dresses and the band. Although, don’t forget to bring a Portland Oregon elopement photographer (if that is where you are from) along, so that you don’t miss out on capturing the memories of your beautiful nuptials. Just because there are no guests present does not mean that you would want photos from the day. Also, make sure that everybody (who would have been invited to the wedding) sends a gift. You can always spend the money you would have spent on the wedding, on a dress from one of the top ranking Wedding Dresses in Charlotte boutiques, Winnie Couture!


The average American wedding costs $26,327. The items that rack up the highest charges being the rings, the dresses, and sometimes even the cake. A small price to pay for happiness for the rest of your life. And, hey, if you do want to get married the traditional way on the Vineyard, you could always rent a lighthouse as a backdrop. That will only set you back $300 an hour.

Many people find themselves in a bit of debt after their wedding because of the pressure on making it the most perfect day ever with the expensive wedding dress and lots of guests attending. So it is important for couples to get consolidation loans (see this) as quickly as possible so they are not struggling with money at the very beginning of their married life.
