Planning a Destination Wedding in Las Vegas

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Planning a wedding can be a lot of fun and it can also be a lot of work. Planning a destination wedding can often add an element of stress to this mix. With Las Vegas wedding services at your disposal however, planning can be even be fun.

Destination weddings have become extremely popular. People seem to love the idea of getting out of town and tying the knot elsewhere. This may have something to do with the fact that people are working so much that combining a holiday with their wedding can be the best way to cram as much into their short time off as possible. The most popular destination by far for such couples is Las Vegas. This city has long been thought of as the hottest spot for weddings and the number of weddings there has increased by an enormous amount. There are now over 9000 weddings there each month!

If you are planning to hop on a plane and head to Vegas to get married you may want to plan it in advance – at least some parts of it anyway. Planning a destination wedding in a city that knows very well how to marry people puts you in a very good position. The first thing you will want to do is to get onto the internet and do a little research about what is available to you for planning. Look up lots of Las Vegas wedding services so that you can decide how much you want to arrange on your own and how much you would rather delegate to others.

There is no right or wrong way to do this, so if you want to make every booking on your own, you should do so. Consider though, that Las Vegas wedding services that offer wedding packages may be able to co-ordinate all the services needed in a more efficient and reliable way than you can from miles away. Consider also that Las Vegas wedding services are very familiar with all the details of how these functions come together. You may not be as competent at getting all the service providers together at the right time to pull the event together the way an experienced wedding expert can.

Your Destination Wedding

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

An advantage to having a destination wedding is being able to have your ceremony and honeymoon in the same location. One way to get some ideas about where to hold your destination wedding is to check out some of the different resort locations on the internet. Most resorts offer wedding packages that have everything included, even a wedding planner. All you need to do is provide the bride and groom! If you want more control over your big day use these tips and ideas for planning one of the biggest days in your life. As with every wedding, prepare a wedding planner or organizer. This will keep tasks organized and remind you of dates that certain tasks need to be accomplished by. Remember that by having a destination wedding, you will be planning your event long distance.

When inviting guests to your destination wedding, send out announcements early, letting them know which hotel to call to reserve rooms, as well as dates and times for plane tickets so they can be purchased in advance. You may also think about having a large reception when you return home for those who cannot attend your wedding. Send out separate announcements for this and let them know they will have a chance to congratulate you at a later date. For destination weddings it is important to check on regulations and laws. If you are being married outside of the United States, be sure to have passports, blood tests, a U.S. marriage license, if needed, and any other paperwork that will need to be completed. Stay ahead of the game so when you arrive at your destination everything is in order.

Also consider how you will get your attire to your destination wedding. Rather than trying to check everything in at the airport on the day you fly out, ship everything separately two weeks in advance. Call the destination and confirm that everything arrived in a peaceful state. This will also give you two weeks extra time in the event that something is damaged in travel. Do not forget to hire a photographer, clergy, wedding planner and bakery to complete your wedding. For information on different services offered, you can contact the destination’s Visitor Bureau. A few of the more popular destination wedding spots include Jamaica in the Caribbean, the Florida Keys, the blue waters of Hawaii, and Las Vegas, with its hundreds of wedding chapels
