Vegas Wedding

Viva Las Vegas – Vegas Wedding
A Vegas wedding sounds exotic, daring and budget friendly! Getting married in Vegas doesn’t mean you need to pull into a drive-thru window or have an Elvis impersonator marry you off. Want to get married next to the Bellagio dancing fountains? Or, what about exchanging vows underneath the Eiffel Tower? Vegas caters to all sorts of budgets from the ritzy and exclusive to simple and sweet. You can keep it flashy or classy- totally up to you! There are so many options; you might just have a hard time choosing just one! Every year,some 120,000 weddings are performed in Las Vegas, making it the most popular destination wedding site by far.
The Positives
Affordability & Convenience – This is the biggest advantage of a Las Vegas wedding. While a traditional U.S.wedding costs $27,000 on average, you can have a complete wedding ceremony for a few hundred dollars (or less)in Las Vegas. At Las Vegas hotels with wedding chapels,there’s usually a wedding coordinator who can arrange everything from your wedding flowers to the officiant to music and photography/videography. And you can plan it allover the phone or even online.
Timing
You will be able to book a chapel for your wedding in Las Vegas on short notice. Reservations are helpful,although walk-ins are accommodated in some places.
Fun
If you want to get married in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator, who’s to stop you?Start the Honeymoon Early–No need to get on a plane or head out of town after the wedding. Las Vegas is more than a great wedding town–Las Vegas is a great honeymoon destination, too.
The Negatives
Your Wedding, Your Way–There’s no comparison between a wedding planned months or years in advance with a quickie Las Vegas one. If you’re someone who cares about having specific wedding colors, custom favors, a certain baker, local florists and bands, and other elements that personalize a wedding, you may not be satisfied with a standard Las Vegas wedding package.
Conveyor Belt Mentality
While Las Vegas wedding chapels attempt to keep wedding parties separate, they don’t always succeed. Some Las Vegas hotels have more than one chapel, so you may encounter people from other wedding parties. At one of the better Las Vegas wedding chapels, couples have one hour of chapel time: 30 minutes for guest arrival and seating, 15 minutes for the ceremony, and 15 minutes for photography.
Reception Sites
Las Vegas wedding chapels are just that: Places where weddings are conducted. If you want to have a reception afterwards, that has to be arranged separately. Larger hotels have banquet and meeting rooms
which are mostly used for corporate functions. I recommend a private room in a restaurant.
Tacky Image
Despite the best efforts of Las Vegas’ finest hotels–which can produce gala affairs second to none — Las Vegas weddings are still considered tacky by some.

    Great post! It’s so true, you can do a Vegas wedding in so many different ways. I got married in Vegas in September 2016, and it was honestly the most fun experience I could have hoped for. Our photos are so gorgeous, I’m thrilled with them.
