Spring is wedding season and Las Vegas—the Wedding Capital of the World year-round—is no exception. March, April and May in the destination are perfect for outdoor weddings, as the days are warm while evenings are mild enough that you can wear the gauziest of gowns or the most stylish of linen suits.

Picture it: You and your beloved exchanging vows on a patio at sunset, surrounded by twinkling lights and flowers. Or imagine making it official in the Nevada desert as the sunset drapes you in the most flattering pink light.

There are a million good reasons to marry in the springtime, and as many reasons to get married in Vegas. Here’s what to consider when planning a spring wedding in Las Vegas.

Desert Destinations

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is fantastic for wildflowers and during peak bloom season, you’ll see splashes of pink, yellow, lavender and white. There’s no guarantee of when the bloom will occur or how long it will last, but plan for March or April for the best odds of Mother Nature bringing her flowers to your event. Even without the bloom, the pink and orange rock in the Mojave Desert makes a spectacular setting for your Las Vegas wedding.

For an outdoor event with offbeat vibes, consider Cactus Joe’s Desert Garden and Nursery. The venue hosts weddings on its cactus-filled grounds, where you’ll be surrounded by plant life that thrives in the desert. The property also has rustic background touches that will make for perfect photos.

Springs Preserve has a lush garden arbor, a gazebo and an outdoor amphitheater with manicured lawns that are just begging for a grand event like your Las Vegas wedding. While the nature sanctuary is beautiful year-round, spring is when the grounds are in full flower. If you’re the kind of romantic who plans everything well in advance, you can book a location for your proposal, too.

Pool parties and private patios

Pool season typically begins in March, right when spring wedding season starts. If a ceremony or reception by the water sounds like your dream event, plan ahead to book a wedding on the deck at one of Vegas’ many popular resort pools or dayclubs. Red Rock Casino Resort Spa has a twinkle-light-draped pool deck, majestic palm trees and a serene fountain, making it an elegant place for your afternoon-into-evening wedding celebration.

If gardens and greenery are more your spring wedding spirit, book a terrace or courtyard. Wynn Las Vegas hosts weddings in its Primrose Court, a lush, private space with fountains and greenery. There’s also Vdara Hotel and Spa, which has an exclusive patio with stunning views of the Strip.

Make it easy on yourself! Most hotels and resorts offer on-site wedding planning services. Give them a call and let them know you want an outdoor event, whether it’s an intimate minimony, an everyone’s invited catered celebration, or anything in between. They’ll help you create a Las Vegas spring wedding that’s everything you imagined.

Convertibles and pop-ups

Rolling down the Strip with the top down on a beautiful spring day is a Vegas adventure. Why not get married while you’re at it? Rent a head-turning vintage convertible from Vegas Vintage Rentals—think ’50s or ’60s Cadillac, Thunderbird or Mustang with all the fins, chrome and mirror polish. Then cruise to the Little White Wedding Chapel to tie the knot from behind the wheel.

There’s no limit to your spring wedding location when you have a pop-up wedding with Flora Pop. Flora Pop’s adorable teardrop trailer holds everything you need for a pocket-sized outdoor wedding. Get married in the desert or on the streets of downtown Las Vegas, or work with Flora Pop to find exactly the right place for your ceremony.

Things to keep in mind for your spring Las Vegas wedding

Spring brings March College Basketball, NASCAR and the Electric Daisy Carnival (among other significant events) to Las Vegas, so advance planning can help you land your first-choice venue.

You can always take advantage of the wedding professionals Vegas has to offer, but you can also go the DIY route. You’ll also need to keep the legal essentials in mind. Here’s your guide to getting married in Las Vegas.

This is Las Vegas, after all—where weddings happen just as frequently as bachelor and bachelorette parties. So why not do both during an unforgettable week or weekend in the destination? And while you’re the star couple, your guests will feel the love even more if you make the experience memorable for them, too. Here are some ideas to make your Las Vegas wedding getaway fun for everyone.
