@LavenderLily63:  I’m having the same issue, even our free wedding venue site would cost us around 10,000.00 to rent everything and then figure out how to put on a wedding without the help of a real Venues staff. I dream of sneaking off to Vegas and just tying the knot, stress free and saving $!  I think the only way I could do a Vegas wedding is if I promised myself the “real wedding” feel in a vow renewal x number of years down the road.

  • Wedding: October 2013

We decided on a Vegas wedding for a number of reasons.

1) Neither of us want to get married in our home towns.  

2) Our second choice (Banff, AB) is infamous for being incredibly expensive.

3) Might help pare down the guest list (although we both have large families for most of whom money is not an issue).  

4) After some preliminary research, our money will go much further in Vegas… especially since FI’s family has connections in the hospitality biz.


Even though its technically a destination wedding, I don’t want a “Resort” wedding, so we’re looking into venues for the cereomy/reception off the strip.

  • Wedding: August 2013

Two women in my office got married recently.  Both told me they wished they’d “just gone to Vegas.”

I’m seven months out and can already understand the sentiment!
