    Yep! We are officially not single anymore!

    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 can’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 don’t stress if something goes not quite perfect.

        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.
