When you decide to have your big day in Las Vegas, you’ll find so many ways to make it unique and decidedly less stressful. Having a weekday wedding in Vegas opens a plethora of possibilities and benefits. 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 lower rates during the week. And Harry Reid International Airport has a huge selection of flights arriving and departing every day from all over the world.
2. MIDWEEK WEDDING OPPORTUNITIES
Holding a wedding midweek not only saves money overall, but you also have greater flexibility in choosing a time and date and an increased likelihood of securing some of the best venues and vendors. Plus, most of the wedding packages at hotels on the Strip include a wedding planner to help make your dream wedding 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 offers a weekday wedding package complete with flowers, photography, limousine service and live streaming for those who can’t attend.
And if you really want to WOW your invitees, Resorts World Las Vegas has multiple options that will dazzle your guests. Beyond the pools, nightclubs and theater, the property offers couples the Rose Rooftop. Say “I do” surrounded by the gorgeous Las Vegas skyline at the top of the Strip’s newest hotel.
At Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, bachelor and bachelorette parties are just as at home as weddings. With fabulous dining options, a fantastic pool and multiple venues perfect for tying the knot, Virgin has it all.
3. FEWER CROWDS = MORE INTIMATE
Celebrating midweek typically generates a more intimate affair, in which you can share your special moment in a more personal fashion. 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 highly sought after on the weekends, but a midweek wedding likely means it’ll be easier to get a reservation. It’s still recommended that you make reservations to ensure the restaurant can meet your party size and needs, though restaurant options are plentiful. Each of them will offer its own unique experience—whether you’re looking for a dramatic view, gorgeous surroundings or a specific cuisine, there’s a restaurant for all happy couples.
Some highlights include Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas; Top of the World Restaurant at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod; Barry’s Downtown Prime at Circa Resort & Casino; Scarpetta at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas; CATCH at ARIA Resort & Casino; and Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
5. EXTENDED CELEBRATIONS ARE EASY TO DO
If you’ve decided on a weekday wedding, why not extend the festivities through the weekend? You’ll have more time to truly enjoy the location—and the time with friends and family—all in a destination perfect for a gathering. 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 high-end experience, Wynn Las Vegas offers top-notch accommodations and service.
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 and book your venue for your big day!
