Photo: Getty Images.
To some, the term “elope” still conjures images of hasty lovers stumbling into clandestine chapels, or frugal pairs looking to save a few pennies on the guest list.
But elopements have changed.
Today, they’ve become an intimate alternative to a traditional wedding, where the details matter less than the vows being exchanged. No longer taboo, eloping is an incredibly romantic and wild way for adventurous couples to profess their love in some of the most stunning destinations around the world. Here are some of our favorite romantic places to sneak away to say "I do."
(Note: Be sure to check out the local embassy’s marriage requirements and restrictions before eloping in a foreign country.)

The Seychelles

These 115 tropical islands in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa, are basically the definition of paradise. Most of the hotels offer wedding packages, and the islands host many destination weddings and elopements year-round. Plus, getting hitched here is hassle-free: All you need to do is bring your birth certificate and check into your Seychelles hotel two days before saying "I do," according to Lonely Planet.

At the Four Seasons Seychelles, you can have the barefoot-on-the-beach wedding you've always dreamed of. Check into one of the exclusive treehouse villas, enjoy the ocean views, and let the staff do the rest. The resort has a seriously affordable wedding package — and the Four Seasons staff will even help you coordinate your paperwork.

Lake Tahoe, NV

Obviously, Vegas is the no-brainer way to go for elopements — getting a marriage license in Nevada is exceedingly simple. But if all the cheesy hoopla isn't for you, head upstate to Lake Tahoe, where it's quieter and more picturesque. If you're looking for a winter getaway, elope on the ski slopes. And Lake Tahoe's crystal-clear water is gorgeous in the summer. Be sure to check out scenic Emerald Bay State Park, an iconic spot and a popular place for small weddings.

Welcome to paradise. Elopement paradise. Fiji is known as the wedding capital of the South Pacific, so you won't lack choice when it comes to venues. Many of the resorts across its 300-plus islands offer wonderful all-inclusive elopement-package deals. Whether you're looking for a simple, barefoot-on-the-beach ceremony or a luxe private-island escape such as Turtle Island (where scenes from the Blue Lagoon were filmed), you'll find something to love.

Corsica, France
This mountainous Mediterranean island offers beaches, hiking trails, some of the most interesting and complicated wine in the world, and plenty of romantic hideaways. If that doesn't spell elopement, we don't know what does.

Corsica, France (Continued)
From the U Capu Biancu website: "Yes, a delightful vacation home: elegant and colourful, rich yet discrete. One that you long for when winter pales the landscape, and dream of from the first breath of spring. Distanced from hustle and bustle by a long asphalt drive, hidden away in the flowery, sweet-scented maquis. Built above the sea whose gentle rocking it watches, full and tender. A dwelling place that gladly opens its doors to travellers in search of serenity and of reminiscence." That sounds heavenly to us.

For some romance among the vines, visit upper Napa Valley's Calistoga. Winery tours and outdoor activities — from biking to bocce ball to hot-air balloons — abound. And can you think of a more romantic place to elope than in a canyon among ancient oaks?

If you're going off the grid for your elopement, why not go all the way Down Under? Tiny Hepburn Springs is a resort town just over an hour from Melbourne that's well-known for its local mineral springs and spa retreats. Couple's massage, anyone?

Montreal, Canada
What's more romantic than strolling the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal together? Brush up on your French and retreat north to this charming city. Be aware that the law in Quebec requires you to announce your intent to marry 20 days ahead of time. Also, because Canada's more progressive than us, both spouses keep their last names by law.

Temecula, California
If you're looking to unwind — and enjoy endless wine-tasting — consider Temecula, the heart of Southern California's wine country.

Aarhus, Denmark
Explore the cobbled streets of Aarhus, the second-largest city in Denmark, and a hive of Scandinavian culture. The city, which embodies Danish charm, is brimming with art, architecture, and fabulous cuisine. (Caffeine lovers, pay attention: Aarhus has particularly good coffee.)

For those who also want a bit of beach therapy, fear not: The southern coastline of the city has beaches to offer.

For proper intake of Aarhus's many features, you'll need to be near the city's center. Enjoy a view of the beaches from the Marselis Hotel, which is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from bustling downtown. Take a walking tour of the city or rent bikes and take to the city on wheels. At the end of the day, take an evening walk along the beach.

The Mediterranean sea is calling your name. More specifically, the picturesque island smack dab in the center of the Mediterranean sea is calling your name. This archipelago has a few urban centers, but is otherwise relatively undeveloped. Check out Comino, an island on the Blue Lagoon, which doesn't allow cars. The Blue Lagoon itself is an attraction — the waters are an astounding shade of azure.

Malta (Continued)
Lovers looking to escape can even stay on Comino at the Comino Hotel. The hotel, which is the only resort on the island, will keep you safely ensconced from the real world. The resort is fairly isolated, so you'll have to take a boat to your residence. But what's more romantic than a boat ride to a private island?

Tamil Nadu, India
Sneak away to this state at the southern tip of India, which houses a generous array of temples for you and your soon-to-be spouse to enjoy.

The Smoky Mountains
Lovers of the great outdoors can retreat to one of our country’s finest sights: the Smoky Mountains. This eastern National Park, which straddles the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, will keep your nuptials covert under the Appalachian forestry. Looking for some time alone? You’ve got it — just be sure to watch out for the black bears that frequent the area.

The tallest peak in the park, Mount Le Conte, rises in 5,301 feet from base to summit. Break a sweat on the hike up, then rest in the Le Conte Lodge. In 1934, Pauline and Jack Huff married atop the mountain and began operating a hotel from its peak. Today, the lodge is maintained by a hospitality service, but it has retained its family-run charm. After celebrating your marriage with a hike, cuddle up in a one-room cabin, and dine on family-style meals in the main lodge.

Da Nang, Vietnam
Vietnam's fifth-largest city is also one of its most picturesque, with scenic beaches, stunning mountains, and close proximity to several UNESCO world heritage sites. Da Nang tends to attract fewer tourists than Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, but that's part of its appeal for couples looking for a private escape.

Gretna Green, Scotland
This little village in the south of Scotland is the unofficial birthplace of eloping. Couples have been running off to make their bond legal in this village since the mid 1700s, when marriage restrictions in England prompted couples to cross the Scottish border to become husband and wife.

Turks & Caicos
Part of the genius of eloping on Turks and Caicos is that it forces you to stay put in paradise. This British territory requires couples to be on the island at least three days before saying "I do," and then pauses their return for three more days after the vows to process the marriage license.

Niagara Falls, Canada
Located right on the U.S.-Canada border (between New York and Ontario), Niagara Falls may bring to mind cheesy, '70s-style wedding suites, but don't buy into that. A number of cute chapels not far from the Falls do offer quickie weddings, but today you can elope in style. We recommend heading to nearby Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, for your I Dos.

Niagara Falls, Canada (Continued)
Niagara-On-The-Lake is a bit like stepping back in time — the heart of the town is its downtown historic district, which is full of of well preserved 19th century buildings. In addition to its close proximity to the Falls, it's also a short drive to Ontario's wine country. Book your stay at 124 on Queen, where the staff will happily coordinate the details of your elopement. Or, make like Jim and Pam, and take your vows aboard the Maid of the Mist.

When you're done relaxing (as if that ever happens), venture to the Tet Paul Nature Trail, which runs through an organic farm.
