Article by — Helene, Paris elopement planner, helping brides since 2012
As we all look forward to the exciting 2024 Paris Olympics, elopement planning during this time can be different than usual. In this guide, we want to show you how to combine love and the Olympic spirit in the heart of Paris.
Whan can we expect for Olympic Games Paris 2024
PARIS 2024 SUMMER OLYMPICS
When? The Paris 2024 Olympic Games are scheduled from July 26 to August 11, 2024. But realistically, we can expect that the city will be affected from the end of May 2024 to late September 2024 with constructions and events.
What to expect? The Paris 2024 Olympic Games are expected to feature approximately 10,500 athletes from around the world. As for the number of events, there are 329 events across 32 sports on the program. This includes both summer sports and some new additions like breakdancing, skateboarding, and surfing.
But there is one thing we know for sure: be prepared for potentially larger crowds at these locations during the Games.
The increased number of visitors and spectators attending the Games can lead to more people at these attractions, potentially affecting the intimacy of the moment.
How will that affect the city?
The Paris 2024 Olympic Games are expected to have several significant impacts on the city. Expect higher levels of tourism during the Games. While this can add to the excitement, it may also mean that popular tourist attractions and accommodations could be busier than usual. Book accommodations well in advance to secure your preferred options. With increased demand during the Olympics, hotels and vacation rentals may fill up quickly.
Where? The Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be spread across various venues in and around Paris. Some of the key venues include Stade de France, Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Roland Garros Stadium, Champs-Élysées, Seine River, various existing and temporary venues:

Officially, The Eiffel Tower area itself is not expected to be closed entirely. However, certain parts might be used for Olympic-related events or activities. We have no information, but most likely, all our photoshoot and ceremony spaces will be changed and closed with constructions, but it is super hard to tell since there is no confirmed plan:
So far, we can expect the central Eiffel Tower plus Louvre area to be closed
WHAT WILL BE CLOSED?
Specific details about restricted areas in the center of Paris during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be determined by security and logistical considerations closer to the event dates. Such restrictions may include temporary road closures, security zones around key venues, and changes in pedestrian access in certain areas.
WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT PARIS IN 2024?
While the Paris Olympics will be an interesting event, it's important to consider that popular landmarks might be busier than usual during the Games. To ensure a more intimate elopement, consider eloping before May 2024 or after September 2024.
