Las Vegas has always been known for the quick-fix weddings in the country, but now Las Vegas is becoming a popular hotspot for traditional weddings that don’t include an Elvis impersonator. With so many airline deals available year-round, Las Vegas is not only a fun place to plan a wedding, it is also an affordable one.
Wedding Day Weather
Couples coming in on international airlines have chosen Las Vegas for their wedding destination simply because of the weather; it’s warm. In the summer months, however, the temperatures are well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit; therefore, a couple may want to consider that if they plan on having an outdoor wedding. The best temperatures for getting married in Las Vegas come from March to May, when the temperatures outside rarely get above 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pick the Wedding Location Early
With so many couples taking advantage of the best fares to Las Vegas, weddings are now something you have to plan, unless you don’t mind a quick-fix wedding chapel. Casinos now require reservations months ahead of time (or years depending on the date). Some popular wedding chapels for Las Vegas weddings are Caesar’s Palace, the Wynn, the Bellagio and the Excalibur. Call and speak with the event planners at the casino of your choice six months prior to booking flights to Las Vegas to make sure your wedding date is open.
Advantages of a Las Vegas Wedding
Couples used to run to Las Vegas to elope, but now couples are coming to Las Vegas to host their own traditional wedding with family and friends by their side. Why the new trend in Vegas weddings? Aside from Las Vegas having rather predictable weather, cheap flights to Las Vegas make it possible for not only the couple, but their friends and family to head over to Nevada for the wedding.
Couples planning weddings in Las Vegas at casinos such as the Bellagio or the Wynn get full-service wedding planners who take care of all of the wedding planning for you, including booking rooms. All the couple has to do is show up and recite their vows. Most casinos offers all-inclusive packages that include catering, photography, wedding cakes, honeymoon suites, limo rides and airline deals for the couple and their guests. Don’t worry if you cannot find a wedding dress, because the all-inclusive packages will include tuxedo and wedding dress rentals.
