Your Guide to Tying the Knot in Vegas

Your Guide to Tying the Knot in Vegas

Making the decision to get married in Las Vegas is an exciting one. For those that love the vibe, atmosphere, and energy of this city, starting a new married life here is the perfect fit. It’s also the perfect place for more than just a runaway wedding. For those who want to plan a beautiful wedding that’s customized just for them, Vegas is ideal.

Choose the Setting

One of the first steps for planning a wedding in Vegas is to determine where you’ll hold it. Many of the casinos offer wedding packages, which include ample options for dining, a place to say I Do, and all of the associated gear to set up your wedding. In some cases, you’ll find wedding chapels, churches, outdoor gardens, and even wedding-specific venues to use. Don’t forget some unique locations to tie the knot like Spring Preserve, a large botanical garden about 15 minutes from the Strip. The High Roller, the tallest observation wheel in the world, can be booked for weddings too.

Most will require you to book them in advance and choose the services you desire. It’s always possible to get married in Las Vegas at the last minute, too. After all, it’s known for that!

Go for the Right Look

As you are planning your wedding, also remember you’ll need to bring everything you need with you or you’ll want to buy items locally. For those who wish to spend less, bring everything from the dress to your shoes with you. You’ll want to arrange for hair and makeup at your hotel or a local salon. Some wedding packages even include this.

However, this is Vegas and that means dressing up your wedding to fit the feel and elegance of the location. Check out vintage jewelry for a unique style on your wedding day. If you love Old Vegas with its Hollywood-like atmosphere, vintage is always excellent. If you want something modern, check out simpler dresses with limited jewels.

Plan for Guest Needs

Destination weddings remain one of the biggest trends in the wedding industry today. They provide some fantastic opportunities for guests to get in a break and to celebrate your big day. Whether you plan to bring a large family down or just a few friends, plan for your guests in advance. That means considering a literary for their stay in some cases. Other times, you just need to be responsible for the wedding day itself. Plan a meal for those in attendance. Local hotels will also hold a set of rooms for your guests to book as well.  Be sure to inform your guests in your wedding invitation what you’ll be providing.

Plan for Your Guests’ Winning Success

Whether you’re holding a casino-themed wedding reception or getting married in Vegas, one of the main concerns couples have for guests is: Will guests be interested in (and know how to play) casino games? Because, let’s face it — not knowing how to play the games can really affect how much your guests enjoy the party, and you want your guests to have a good time. Thankfully, your guests can learn every format online before the wedding, from poker to slots, so there’s no need to worry.  In the invitations, encourage them to study hard the different variety of formats and hone their skills because, come your wedding day, it’s showtime.

Plan Plenty of Time to Have Fun

You’re coming to tie the knot but there’s much more to see and do. Instead of booking every minute with your group, plan some free time for everyone to see the sights and engage in all of the fun that’s to be had. It’s a fantastic experience. Give yourself some time to hit the casinos, do some shopping, and see the best shows. Your ceremony will take an hour and your reception a few more. For the rest of the time you’re here, spend it having fun.  Have some down time between excursions out and about then check out for a great fun option.

Tying the knot in Vegas is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Go big and make it as magical as you want. Ensure everyone that comes with you to celebrate is ready to have an incredible experience.
