This entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime
Have you ever thought of getting married in Las Vegas? I am sure you have ….everyone has since it is the wedding capital of the world. Las Vegas Wedding Chapels have been portrayed in a certain light over the last decades, and times are constantly changing. The chapels are consistently reinventing themselves. The old-fashioned photos of someone knocking on the door in the middle of the night, with the husband and wife answering in pajamas to marry the happy couple are long gone. We have elegant facilities that are very traditional as well as we have the lighthearted chapels too, with Elvis impersonators and the like.
Wedding Variety In Vegas
We are the most fun and economical place to get married!!! This town has opportunities for everyone that range from a walk-up wedding window, a drive-up wedding window, to “sky’s the limit!” We have anything you can image from getting married by helicopter over the Grand Canyon, dressed as your favorite character, get married on a gondola, or even have your nuptials performed while skydiving!
The Las Vegas Wedding scenario has expanded from just strip chapels to chapels in the luxurious hotels, golf courses, hotel suites, themed locations, the famous Las Vegas sign, and even at local attractions. Several free-standing chapels have changed their philosophy about just being a number game and want to create a “Vegas experience” to be remembered. They are staying on the cutting edge with implementing webcasting and Skype to interact with the relatives that cannot attend, reception facilities on property with full capabilities of catering an event, and even tux and costume shops for you to rent your attire.
The Banquet and Catering departments of hotels have seen larger groups wanting their “reception” in the banquet facilities, and some of them in their local restaurants. Again, the cost on this part of the function varies from location to time of the day your event will occur as well as attendance.
Getting Married In Las Vegas
We are seeing larger groups coming to Vegas, while in the past it was smaller groups and a lot of just couples. Two trends are in play.
First, though a great percentage of parties still consists of just the bride and groom, when they inform their family and friends they are going to Vegas, everyone jumps on the bandwagon for the event. We see this, especially with our Southern California travelers. The days of the $25,000 wedding still exists, although you can have a large group attend your wedding, have a fine dining reception with all the trimmings, DJ, flowers, photos, limos etc. with a portion of the cost that includes fun in Las Vegas.
Second, we have also now created the perfect place for the last night of being a single woman or man. Everyone is having Bachelorette or Bachelor parties where attending live shows is not just for men anymore. The women can go to Chippendales or Thunder Down Under for an exotic male revue or enjoy a Stripper 101 class, while there are numerous adult entertainment locations for the men. Again, the cost is not prohibitive.
“Vegas, Baby” – Live Your Dream
The best part is that you can start in Vegas with your Bachelor/Bachelorette party, and then your wedding, and the honeymoon, while all your guests have shared the most important day in your life and are having a vacation for them…. All at a fraction of the cost that other destination weddings cannot offer. “Vegas Baby”… We can bring your vision to reality.
