So now that you’ve selected your destination, see our tips for planning the perfect fall wedding in Las Vegas! 

Planning and Seasonal Tips for a Fall Wedding in Las Vegas 

Autumn is beautiful in Las Vegas, which makes it a popular time to say “I do” in the destination. Fall offers mild temperatures, perfect for outdoor ceremonies or receptions. Plus, while your guests are in the destination, there’s plenty of seasonal activities for them to enjoy. 

With fall being such a popular time to get married in Las Vegas, be sure to book your venue(s) well in advance — a year would be ideal. However, there’s plenty of options so even if you’re working on a limited timetable, don’t worry! Vegas has plenty of same-day wedding packages. You might want to hire a wedding planner to help make your wedding dream a reality, and many venues even offer this as part of their wedding packages. Your planner can coordinate everything, from the venue and flowers to catering and photography — and so much more. 

The destination is also commemorating its 70th anniversary as the Wedding Capital of the World with a special event in September at Caesars Palace, complete with a fabulous brunch, live entertainment and lots of delicious wedding cake baked by the “Cake Boss” himself, Buddy Valastro. 

When it comes to your fall wedding photos, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is the ideal backdrop for your special day. The pastel desert colors and unique rock formations are truly magnificent, plus they’re unique to the destination.  

Fall 2023 wedding trends are muted color palettes. Here’s a few ideas for inspiration as your colors will dictate everything from bridesmaid dresses to flowers to linens to font color.   

  • Sage green: The pale hue screams autumn, which is why it pairs beautifully with other seasonal colors like pumpkin, gold or pink. 

  • Navy blue: A classic, which pairs perfectly with accents of marsala and pink or mauve and green to make your décor and special day shine. 

  • Rust: an excellent option, as it mimics the Southern Nevada sunset during autumn. Pair it with black or teal to really make it pop. 

As for the cake, it’s fall, after all, so apple spice, gingerbread, pumpkin spice and red velvet command the seasonal flavors. You can opt for these or many others at some of Las Vegas’ best bakeries, including Las Vegas Custom Cakes, ARIA Patisserie at ARIA Resort & Casino or Carlo’s Bakery at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas

And when it comes time for a beverage, go for the open bar and get the champagne, but this is a fall wedding in Las Vegas! Consider adding a hot apple cider and hot toddy station — complete with cinnamon stir sticks — or opt for a cranberry margarita or cranberry Moscow mule.
