It can be a challenge to have a Vegas-inspired wedding that is unique. Here are some ways you can make your big day as special as you are.

Tips for Your Big Day in Las Vegas

You may be planning a wedding in one of the many drive-through chapels in Sin City, but if you think outside the box, your celebration can be an incredibly unique event that your guests will never forget. Here are some suggestions for throwing a Vegas-worthy wedding.

Decorating with Local Inspiration

Let your wedding invitations reflect the casino culture by making them resemble an oversized ace of spades or hearts; print an “All in” and an “I fold” check box for your guests to RSVP or decline their attendance. Your wedding cake can resemble a deck of cards as well by selecting white and black diamond-patterned fondant with red roses as the trim. As a party favor, provide each guest with a custom-printed deck of cards and several gambling chips in a box container that resembles a die. Decorate each dinner table with red rose bouquets, and instead of serving a traditional meal, opt for a Vegas-style buffet instead.

Wedding Attire

Depending on your preferences, you can take the traditional wedding party wardrobe approach that includes black tuxedos with bowties for the men and elegant red dresses for the women. If you are the adventurous type, you could even have the men wear Elvis-inspired attire with the corresponding hairpiece. It’s your wedding, and you are free to be as tacky or as elegant as you choose.

Entertainment Options

Even when planning Vegas-inspired nuptials, you do not have to hire an Elvis look-alike to serenade your guests at the reception. There are several Las Vegas cover bands that can provide hours of entertainment while adhering to traditional Vegas-style entertainment that you would expect to see in a major casino. If your taste is more refined, choose a cover band that specializes in classical music. Allow your guests to hit the dance floor and then pull out the card tables for a night of gambling. You can even rent equipment that will bring the entertainment from the casino to your specific venue.
