Destination wedding Las Vegas
A destination wedding Las Vegas is personalized - it can be original or traditional. Weddings and the reception reflect the personality of the couple. Some destination weddings are outdoorsy, others chic and stylish, some are outrageous and wild while others simple and romantic.
We were married in Las Vegas a bit over a year ago. We did all the research about:
destination wedding planning
destination wedding packages
creative wedding ideas
great destination wedding locations
Best places to elope in Vegas - find out where you can have your Valley of Fire, Pamrump Valley Vineyards, Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead, Mt. Charleston, Grand Canyon wedding. Also details on chapels and hotel weddings.
A conventional wedding takes advance planning for some couples up to a year. Destination wedding planning is simple - for a very reasonable price someone does it for you.
Instead of planing the layers of the wedding cake I was mapping out our honeymoon itinerary across 5 States Florida, Louisiana, Arizona, California and Nevada.
In addition I'm Canadian and my husband is Belgian. Getting married in Belgium was very complicated - it would have takes us a year or more just to get through all the administrative red tape.
Planning destination wedding Las Vegas in 3 Steps
- Find out about Marriage laws where you live
Order additional copies of your marriage certificate you will most likely also need to order an apostille.
Choose a ceremony (location, time, officiant, vows, rings, dress, flowers, photographer, attendants, music) or go with a pre designed package!
We went for romance and simplicity and choose the Valley of Fire destination wedding package. I rented my destination wedding dress on the morning of the wedding, then we had the limo pick us and our witnesses and their dates up from the hotel and we drove to our destination wedding las vegas - Valley of Fire.
There we were met by the minister and the photographer who handed me my bouquet in the requested color. We loved every minute of our destination wedding las vegas. Not everything was perfect, the destination wedding dress was too long and the free champagne of questionable quality. But I would not have done it any other way — eloping on our dream vacation in the desert was adventurous, romantic and completely our style.
- Decide to tell friends and family.
We had a pre elopement party to celebrate our marriage with my family living in Canada who would not make it to the Valley of Fire Ceremony. After the ceremony our photographer friend took plenty of pictures of us on the Las Vegas Strip. We ended the night with a dinner at an exclusive restaurant. Then we had a post elopement party for family and friends in Europe after we came back from our honeymoon.
Destination wedding dresses are as much fun to choose as the destination it self. One of the most decisions you will make when destination wedding planning is selecting the perfect dress. But, making a decision about which kind of gown to wear to dazzle your man might depend somewhat on where your wedding will take place -- in a church, on a mountain top, by the ocean or on an exotic island.
