7 Tips to Organise Your Las Vegas Destination Wedding
Destination weddings have become a popular trend in the industry, but if they’re not organised properly, they could have disastrous results. Thus, a lot of brides have taken their guests with them to Las Vegas – a city that prides itself on wedding convenience. Planning on exchanging vows in the world’s wedding capital? Here are a few things you’ll need to consider when making arrangements for your Vegas wedding:
Get in touch with a wedding coordinator
Before making any commitments, it’s an absolute must that you hire a wedding planner at least a month prior to the big day. Some people believe that they can handle everything on their own, but the truth is that there’s going to be so much going on during your wedding weekend. Jodi Harris from Sight & Sound Events says that a wedding planner can keep you on schedule, keep everything organised so that you can remain stress-free throughout the entire weekend.
Consider getting married at a hotel/casino chapel
Almost every hotel and casino resort in the city has its own chapel, so why not take advantage and book services there? That way, accommodation for your guests could be sorted out as well.
According to Little Church West, these two holidays are the most popular dates for Vegas weddings, so if you want to avoid schedule conflicts, long lines, and too many tourists, don’t get married on a holiday.
Figure out how much you’re willing to spend on your wedding
Though casinos are known for their luxurious, over-the-top weddings, there are a host of packages that offer value for every budget. Red Rock packages include ceremony site fees, reception setup, white-glove service, a champagne toast, wine, and a three-course meal. But if you can afford extravagance, there’s no doubt that establishments such as world-renowned Bellagio would probably be top of your list.
Fill out your marriage application before your wedding
It’s a small detail but very important and is often overlooked, so to avoid unnecessary stress, complete the application online and bring the printed form with you on your wedding day.
Arrive a few days before the wedding date
This gives you time to resolve any last minute issues with your coordinator, all the while your guests could have some free time riding gondolas at the Venetian, or doing what everyone goes to Vegas for, which is gambling. Even if visitors aren’t big gamblers, so much excitement happens on the floor and there’s always going to be something for everyone with so many gaming and live entertainment options available in casinos. A blog post on Intercasino explains that whatever “your personal preference on what you really want to enjoy will determine the right game for you, despite the degree of odds and probabilities.”
Go on a pre-wedding trip
To ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible on the big day, it might be handy to pay a visit to Las Vegas a couple weeks before the event. That way, you can get an idea of how everything will pan out, plus you’ll get a chance to meet with your planner and oversee the wedding arrangements.
