Legally Not Single!!

Recommended Posts

Yep! We are officially not single anymore! smile123.gif

 

We went to Vegas over the weekend and got married at the Little White Wedding Chapel Tunnel of Love Drive Thru. I wasn't exactly sure where I should put this thread as it contains planning, pics and reviews :) There are so many discussions among the Desties about when to do the legal part of your marriage. For us, making it legal in Vegas before the DW was totally the right choice. We were already planning a trip for a kickball tournament with 2 of our teams and it was the perfect excuse to get married and party with some of our friends that canâ€t make it to Puerto Vallarta. We focused more on the celebration aspects and really tried to make the event seem more like a bachelor/bachelorette party (anyone who said marriage or wedding had to take a shot). Overall it was a total blast and we are so happy to not have to stress over legal junk before the wedding. Pics and vendor reviews below!

 

 

Vegas Marriage License Bureau

 

If you are going to get married in Vegas, register online before you go! It saved us at least an hour! We honestly walked into the bureau, went to the Express line and cut in front of about 20 couples. It rocked! Links below:

Kickball Tourney

 

We played kickball all day on Saturday with our 2 teams. One of my un-bridesmaids made me a kickball veil and we were totally rockstars the whole day. No one could believe we were getting married that night and ESPN even interviewed us!

Hair Flower – I tried to buy a silk daisy, but found out that fake flowers have seasons and no one had any. So I pulled one out of an arrangement in our guest bath, glued bling on it and attached a clip.

Limo

 

We used Exclusive VIP Limos and rented their F650 Super CruZer with a stripper pole and 52†tv. The limo and we had a woman driver who rocked! Honestly though, we were a little skeptical of their service after a couple of bad reviews came up, they went to the wrong hotel to pick us up, and did not give us their, “VIP red carpet package†until we asked the driver. She actually stopped at the store and bought 2 bottles of champagne since they messed up. We called to confirm the reservation and they sent us an email with the correct information, but they never relayed this info to the driver. So if you do decide to use them: make sure to pay at the end, be prepared to stay on top of them, and donâ€t stress if something goes not quite perfect.

Tips and Money

 

One of the best things we did to plan ahead was put all of the cash we had to pay into envelopes for each event. One for the chapel, one for the limo rental, one for the minister tip and one for the limo tip. Also, make sure to research the tip stuff beforehand. We found out that 20% gratuity was already tacked on to the limo and the chapel minister would be giving us an envelope for his tip. It was nice to be prepared for this stuff.

 

 

Little White Wedding Chapel Tunnel of Love Drive Thru

 

Going to the drive thru was probably the best decision that we made in the legal department. They were super friendly and the minister was so awesome. Yes it is on a busy street and yes it is cheesy. But we wanted to make sure it wasnâ€t too wedding-y so it was perfect! Everyone kept telling us they can now check off “Drive thru wedding†from their bucket list

Cruisin†the Strip

 

After the ceremony we hopped back in the limo and cruised for the remainder of the rental time. We purchased a case of champagne, plastic champagne flutes, shot glasses that we put our logo on and Hot Dam to shoot. We did a shot as we pulled away from the chapel and then popped open the champagne. FI had put together a limo mix on the ipod and we just cruised, celebrated and just acted like we were kind of a big deal until getting dropped back off at our hotel.
