August 5th wedding

Recommended Posts

I'm gettting married on August 5th. Small wedding. About 6 family members and our baby girl. She will be 19 months.

 

Still haven't decided on the place. At first we looked at the big hotels but we feel it's too expensive for what they offer. We have a small budget. 1000$ or less if possible.

 

Anyone heard of this place :

Las Vegas Wedding Packages - Complete Wedding Packages in Las Vegas

 

We were hoping for an outdoor ceremony but we're afraid that it may be too hot in August.

 

Valley of fire looked amazing but again it may be too hot.

 

Any suggestions for an August weddinghuh.gif

 

Thanks!

The places are beautiful...I especially like the lake-view locations, but the average temp is 103 in august so it would be great if they provided a tent or canopy of some sort!

Good luck with your planning :)

I haven't heard about the Always & Forever Wedding Chapel, but the photos around the lake are beautiful! And it seems that you get a lot for your money whereas many of the hotels on the Strip give you random things in their packages (chocolate covered strawberries are nice, but I'd rather have more photos!)

 

August in Las Vegas is really hot, but at least it is a dry heat as opposed to a humid heat. If you have a shorter ceremony outdoors in the late afternoon or early evening it should be a little more comfortable for your guests. You could always leave a paper fan on their chairs to cool themselves during the ceremony.

Congrats on your upcoming Vegas Wedding. I was thinking of getting married @ Lakeside as well. We are having an outdoor wedding in September. We decided to have a sunset wedding so that it will not be that hot! Good Luck with the planning. Keep checking the boards you will so much useful information here!

There's a lot of nice venues for weddings in the Vegas area. Here's a couple you might want to check out:

 

JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort, Spa and Golf Summerlin, Nevada

 

The Official Home Page of Lake Las Vegas Resort

 

I'm not sure what they charge, but they may have a discounted rate for August weddings, as that is the off season for weddings in the SW due to the heat.

 

Best wishes,

Tod

I'll be on the beach is Aug in NC, so it can be done. But keep the ceramoney itself short no longer than 15 min

 

Provide water and fans

 

do it around sunset, it will be cooler

 

And do your reseption indoors or under something

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
