6 Awesome Reasons Why you should Elope to the Wild West

When it comes to saving money, the couple on a budget should consider saving lots of money with a budget-friendly elopement. Formal weddings can be an absolute nightmare, both to plan and to financially recover after. From planning every single detail to making sure everything goes off without a hitch, it can get overwhelming. Let the professionals at The Mission Chapel, Arizona take care of all your special details!

1. You Can Save For The Bigger Stuff
Our elopement packages are affordable so that you can save money to spend on other large-ticket items, like traveling the world for the honeymoon you’ve always wanted. For you, having the ability to buy your dream house or pay off college debt is a much better use of  your money than spending a fortune on just one day.

2. Budget-Friendly Wedding Packages
The Mission Chapel is a true hidden gem when it comes to finding the perfect place to elope in the US. There are very few places that offer similar savings along with ‘bang for your buck’ when it comes to your wedding day.

The perfect small ceremony is only $950 and includes 4 guests  (in addition to the Bride and Groom).  You can add photography for as little as $150.00  This may be one of the best deals in Arizona for a small wedding!

6. Turn Your Wedding Into The Trip Of A Lifetime

While your wedding might be budget-friendly, your stay doesn’t have to be! With all the things to do and see in the Phoenix, Arizona area, there are also some fabulous places to turn up the romance after experiencing all of the outdoor adventures. Stay in a resort and spa for a blissful rest and some much-needed relaxation. Rent a four-star villa for some alone time with your new partner in crime, or choose something overlooking canyons for one killer view of the Arizona sunset.

There are as many reasons to elope in the Wild West as there are stars in the sky – which you can see better from Arizona because there’s so little light pollution. Have your wedding at the Mission Chapel and find out what makes this diamond sparkle.
