Tip 1: Know your wedding style
Big, medium, micro? Grandiose occasion or a simple affair? Whether you’re thinking shabby chic or completely unique, knowing your Las Vegas wedding style will help you get started! And fortunately, this Wedding Generator Quiz is the easiest – and most fun – way to find out what you really want.
Tip 2: Take advantage of virtual tours
Now that you’ve taken the quiz and have a more clear idea of what your perfect wedding might be, the next step is to find the ideal venue for your perfect day. Take a virtual tour of the Royal Wedding Chapel, The Grove, Rainbow Gardens, or the Chapel in the Clouds at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, to name a few venues that offer this fun and convenient option.
Tip 3: Purchase an all-inclusive Las Vegas wedding package
Once you get the big-ticket items taken care of, putting together all the elements can still feel overwhelming. Luckily, many Las Vegas wedding venues offer all-inclusive packages that make planning a breeze – all you need to do is pick your package option. To name a couple: Caesars Palace offers a variety of packages that specifically accommodate couples who are planning remotely and The Venetian Resort Las Vegas offers various signature ceremony and reception packages designed to make every detail a dream come true.
Tip 4: Have an on-grounds planning team
If you’re going with an all-inclusive package, you’re most likely getting a wedding planner or wedding coordinator who will take care of all the details for you. But if your dream venue doesn’t offer one, consider hiring a wedding planner or a coordinator for the day to take care of all of the tasks that need to be taken care of in person, such as meeting with the vendors, picking up supplies, arranging the seating, and setting and tearing down after the ceremony and reception. Simply Weddings Las Vegas, Cactus Collective and Forever Destination Weddings are highly rated options.
Tip 5: Consider guest lodging
The Strip is home to over 30 hotels and resorts, and the selection offers rooms to fit any budget. For example, SAHARA Las Vegas is one of the more affordable options, and although it’s not centrally located on the Strip, it’s connected to other resorts on the Strip via the inexpensive and accessible Las Vegas Monorail.
Tip 6: Go local and save big
Benefit from using shops and vendors local to Las Vegas. Local businesses may be more willing to negotiate to meet your budget and are typically informed about their products and in touch with what goods and services their customers want to buy. Therefore, not only can they offer a more personal experience, but they may also carry products you can’t get outside of Vegas. For example, the wedding floral design shop, the Native American-owned Prosper & Effect, sources materials for bouquets, flower crowns, centerpieces, and more from the Mojave Desert.
Tip 7: Visit in advance
As you plan, a trip to Las Vegas can be an opportunity to add to the excitement and anticipation of your wedding day. It can also be the perfect chance to see your venues in person and immerse yourself in your vision. Visit your vendors, shop for locally made wedding favors or wedding party gifts, and sample wedding cake flavors. Find hotel deals for your wedding-planning visit so you can make the most of your time here.
Tip 8: Check the local marriage requirements
The process for getting a marriage license in Las Vegas is, well, a piece of (wedding) cake. You can even get married the same day you receive a license, but to ensure you’re as prepared as possible, visit the Clark County Marriage License Bureau.
