Weddings in Vegas: Things to Consider

Planning a big wedding with oodles of guests and unending stress in the run-up to the big day is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. While some people dream of a wedding that they can share with loved ones, others would be happy to head abroad for their celebrations, leaving behind the worries and stress of making sure everything is perfect.

Some may choose to head for a sandy beach but Las Vegas continues to be incredibly popular with couples who want to tie the knot. The shotgun wedding is as sought after today as it was a decade ago and is showing no sign of slowing down. Whether you want to get married by an Elvis impersonator or just fancy an intimate wedding in the Little Chapel of the Flowers, the possibilities are endless and, due to the laws Nevada have for marriage licenses, are extremely affordable too!

By booking your Las Vegas flights through an affordable flight provider, you will be able to tailor-make your day to suit your dreams. You shouldn’t have to worry about the never-ending costs once you’re there, unless you decide to head off on your honeymoon at the same time! Here are a few things you should consider though, to ensure your day runs smoothly and flawlessly.

  • Choose the date wisely. As you can imagine, Valentine’s Day is extremely popular and could leave you queuing for hours, while New Year’s Eve is also a hectic time. If you want to enjoy it rather than hang around waiting, avoid the peak dates.
  • If you want a theme wedding, this is the place to do it! You name it, they’ve seen it, including gothic, Hawaiian and Star Wars.
  • Don’t worry too much about an expensive dress – an empire line, loose-fitting dress would be ideal and would look great with a pair of sunnies!
  • Make sure you get some photos! Whether you hire a photographer or grab some selfies, your family back home will want to see!

Most of all, enjoy it! Heading to Vegas for a wedding provides an immense sense of freedom and fun, without having to worry about the unending debt.
