Did you know that the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles receives 5 stars from Mobile Travel Guide, and was named by them as "Best Hotel for Romantic Getaway in Los Angeles"? It was, which is one reason why you should consider eloping to Los Angeles and having your honeymoon at the Hotel Bel Air. Another reason is that it was ranked #11 out of "Top 100 Hotels in Continental U.S. and Canada" by Travel + Leisure in 2006.
If you want to keep your "weddingmoon" from breaking the bank, you can have a simple elopement ceremony with just the two of you at one of many different Los Angeles locations, including several beach locations, and still enjoy a luxurious honeymoon at the Bel Air.
There are many different officates around LA you can contact who know different ceremony venues to suggest, such as "The Offiant Guy" who says he's an "elopement specialist" who performs elopement ceremonies anywhere, even at a Starbucks! Hey, why not have a less-expensive ceremony and save for a romantic honeymoon at the Bel Air? (You can reach "The Officiant Guy" at (310) 493-3663 or email him at OffcntGuy@aol.com).
If you want to really save money on a ceremony (so you can spend it on the honeymoon), you can always get married at one of the many government offices and Courthouses offering civil ceremonies, including the offices of the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk in Beverly Hills at 9355 Burton Way. They offer ceremonies on Thurday, by appointment - call (310) 288-1261. The best part is the fee for the civil ceremony is only $25. That means more money on the fun part - the honeymoon!
