When you decide to have your big day in Las Vegas, you’ll find so many ways to make it unique, all about you, and decidedly less stressful. And having a weekday wedding in Vegas opens many more possibilities – from fewer crowds to more options of places to celebrate. Take a look at these five reasons to tie the knot during the week in Las Vegas.
1. Better Rates on Hotels and Airfare
Midweek travel is usually more affordable for hotels and flights. Whether it’s just the two of you or you need a room block for a wedding party, most hotels and resorts have cheaper rates during the week. And McCarran International Airport always has a huge selection of direct flights arriving and departing every day from all over the country.
2. Deals on Wedding Packages
Holding a wedding midweek not only saves money overall, but you also have more flexibility in choosing a time and date and the ability to secure the best venues and vendors. Plus, most of the wedding packages at hotels on the Strip arm you with a personal wedding planner to help make your dream day a reality. Check out the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas’ Brunch Wedding package – it’s unique and perfect for a weekday wedding. Chapel of the Flowers actually offers a Weekday Wedding package complete with wedding flowers, photography, limousine service and livestreaming for those who couldn’t make it.
3. Fewer Crowds = More Intimate
For more intimate “I do’s,” weekday celebrations are a great option. Of course, you’ll get more RSVPs with a weekend wedding, but celebrating midweek usually means you’ll be surrounded by the most important people in your life. And a weekday gathering means not having to jockey for space – whether at a venue, restaurant, lounge or hotel. Make it extra intimate and tie the knot 550 feet in the air aboard the High Roller Observation Wheel at The LINQ Hotel + Experience. You’ll get your own cabin for your party and a 30-minute ride with 360-degree views of the whole Strip and beyond, which adds a stunning scenic element to the big occasion.
4. Dining Done Right
Restaurants in Las Vegas are typically so sought after on the weekends, but your midweek wedding most likely means it would be much easier to get a reservation in advance. Now, you’ll still have to make reservations, but there are so many beautiful restaurants to choose from such as Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas; Top of the World Restaurant at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod; Barry’s Downtown Prime at Circa; Scarpetta at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas; CATCH at ARIA Resort & Casino; and Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
5. Extend the Celebration
The big day set for a Wednesday or Thursday? You’ve just opened the door to extend the festivities through the weekend with more fun than you could have ever imagined and truly enjoy the location and the gathering of friends and family. It also allows you to start the honeymoon early. Stay at the ultra-classic Golden Nugget in Downtown Las Vegas for legendary luxury paired with all the modern amenities. For opulent elegance and a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ve always dreamed of, the Forbes Travel Guide five-star-rated Wynn Las Vegas truly can’t be beat.
With so many options to choose from, it’s hard to go wrong. Hopefully, these ideas will give you a good place to start. Now go have some fun!
