Wedding Celebrations with a Vegas Twist
Many happy couples have had to postpone their wedding due to the impact of COVID-19. But keep your chin up, because Las Vegas – the Wedding Capital of the World – with chapels and venues of any style, is here for you. There is no other destination that can accommodate more weddings, ensuring that you won’t have to compete with other couples that may have had to postpone their original date too. And with all the venue options, there is no end to what kind of wedding you can have. From sequel weddings to spectacular celebrations, Vegas is ready to walk you down the aisle.
You had the perfect date and spot planned but, unfortunately, had to delay. While you may have held a minimony (a mini-ceremony that’s a preview of what’s to come when you have the larger ceremony and reception you originally planned), you are now ready and able to celebrate big. These outdoor venues are the perfect spots for your sequel wedding – the larger ceremony and reception you originally planned – to bring your wedding vision to fruition.
Springs Preserve, with its botanical garden, trails and vibrant landscapes, is literally off the beaten path for couples to seal their commitment to each other. Diverse and unique ceremony venues include the outdoor amphitheater, a garden terrace and the desert living center. Most spaces are available for receptions and cocktail hours as well, including the aptly named Cactus Alley with a giant Watering Can installation that’s great for photos.
Make your special day that much more extraordinary when you immerse yourself in the neon glow of the Neon Museum. The Neon Boneyard North Gallery – home to the Brilliant! light show experience – is available for ceremonies and receptions. Surround yourself with hundreds of original neon giants from yesteryear for that vintage Vegas wedding feel. You’ll come away with some of the most original and memorable wedding photos ever.
Caesars Palace Las Vegas has five unbelievable venues to choose from but be sure to check out the luxurious, tropical outdoor setting of the Venus Garden or Juno Garden. Surrounded by palm trees, lush foliage and Roman architecture, both gardens are stunning settings. The Venus Garden also features a Roman-style temple; a relaxing koi-fish pond; a fountain; and a distinctive, stone-tiled aisle.
Can’t wait any longer to marry your betrothed? Smaller, intimate venues are great for spur-of-the-moment elopements, micro-weddings (a ceremony or reception that has fewer than 50 guests or is a combination of an elopement and reception), or a minimony. All these options are just amazing as a full-blown ceremony and many venues offer live video streaming of the service to your friends and family back home, so while they may not be there physically, they can be there virtually.
You don’t have to break the bank to have a memorable, beautiful wedding. These venues are also great places to hold micro-weddings and minimonies, not only because they are affordable and don’t need a long planning period, but also because they’re fun and unique.
You know you want to feel like you’re walking on clouds on your big day, so why not tie the knot 550 feet in the air aboard the High Roller Observation Wheel at The LINQ Hotel + Experience? Featuring 28 plush cabins and a variety of packages for every budget, the High Roller is a perfect venue for the adventurous couple. You get a 30-minute ride with 360-degree views of the whole Strip and beyond, which adds a stunning scenic element to the big occasion.
If you never thought you could get married at one of the resort chapels at an affordable price, think again. Mandalay Bay offers an “Elope” package for $650 that includes all the amenities a larger ceremony would. From a wedding coordinator and flowers to a pianist performing four songs at the ceremony and a photo shoot, it will be everything you’ve dreamed of, for less.
Downtown Las Vegas is full of chapels with reasonably priced packages and Vegas Weddings is one of them. Located right across from the Marriage License Bureau, it operates two chapels: THE Wedding Chapel and The Casino Wedding Chapel, as well as a second-story, balcony terrace gazebo, among other on-site settings. But the most novel and affordable way to seal the deal is in The Fast Lane. Starting at $79, couples can walk up or drive thru to say “I do.”
With so many options, it’s hard to go wrong. Now get out here and get hitched!
