Top 5 Tips to Play Your Vegas Wedding Vegas is a classic destination to get married. People come from around the world to marry in one of the most well-known cities in existence. Not every Vegas wedding goes smoothly though. Papers are lost/forgotten, people can’t get to the city in time, or venues become completely full. It’s a nightmare for people who have dreamed of this day for years. The following are 5 tips to help you get your ducks in a row so you can have your perfect wedding.
Plan a Time for Your Las Vegas Wedding First, Vegas weddings are extremely busy throughout the holidays, especially on Valentine’s Day. That’s not just for the wedding venue either. It includes hotels, flights, etc., the whole nine-yards. It means that you and family may be pressed to find a venue, hotel, flight, or vehicle for an affordable price, if you can find one at all. As romantic as it may seem to be married on a holiday, won’t it be nicer to create something special out of a normal weekend? That way you have one more holiday to look forward to in the years to come. Second, plan for a winter wedding over summer. Spring and fall are the obvious choices for most people weather-wise, but if you can’t make it during those times, choose winter over summer. Summers are downright miserable to be dressed up in. With temperatures averaging above 100 degrees every day of the season, and the streets retaining much of that heat throughout the night, you will be hot and miserable the entire day.
Vegas Weddings in Winter Winters in Vegas are generally much warmer than in other places around the world. Temperatures hardly ever drop below freezing during the day, and snow is a non-issue 99.9% of the time. If you’re coming from colder areas of the country, it likely won’t be as uncomfortable as you might fear, especially when you’re layered in a dress or tux. The cold is mild, but the heat is extreme. Plan your Vegas wedding accordingly if you can’t make a spring or fall time. It will feel so much the better.
Third, book everything early. Of course this tip ensures that you’ll get the venues, hotels, and flights that you’ll need, but it also helps you secure cheaper deals on these items than you would get when purchasing later in the season. Save some money and secure yourself a place by booking everything early. You’ll never regret being too prepared. Fourth, check with your local government how transferring records of a marriage to your hometown works. For many places around the U.S. this isn’t a problem, but for visitors from foreign countries, you may have to file some paperwork well before it’s time to hop on a plane. Make sure your hometown sanctions Vegas weddings. Then ensure you have the proper paperwork filled out before the weeding. Fifth, if you want to feed your guests, and you want to make sure they’re full, consider booking one of the hotel’s buffets for the group. Many have private areas set aside to host parties of all shapes and sizes. Buffets are the staple of the strip, and they’re delicious. You’ll have to try hard to miss one on the strip. So create your own special day, choose winter over summer, book early, check with local authorities, and reserve a buffet to feed your guests. Each of these tips can help you have a smooth and enjoyable wedding in Las Vegas. Photo Credit: w_dinkel , DanOhh
