Newbie - Vegas Wedding!!

Recommended Posts

OH and I have decided to get married in Vegas in August 2011.

I had always assumed would have a wedding locally, and do the whole church, reception, lots of guests and family thing but when I started looking into the organisation and the costs it just seemed so daunting, especially as we would be arranging everything ourselves, paying for the whole thing and probably doing our own invites, order of service, decorations, flowers, booking things like batchelor/ette parties etc etc etc

OH always said about getting married abroad so we decided on Vegas!!


We'll be keeping it pretty much to ourselves, as far as anyone knows we'll be going on holiday so I HAD to join so I can get excited about our secret somewhere!!!!

We're planning on taking both sets of parents and us - so a party of 6 in total and staying for 5-7 days before sending the parentals home to post our 'We got married see you after we come back' cards and we'll go elsewhere for honeymoon!!


We're so excited!!

I'm so excited its going to be really hard to keep it secret, we'll probablly tell the pareents a few weeks before we go just to make sure they have valid passports but other than that I think it'll be hard to keep quiet!! :o) I'm so excited :o) xxx

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
