Old Vegas Glam Meets Dark & Moody Autumn Wedding

Planning a destination wedding from afar can be a complicated operation. It takes a clear vision and plenty of trust in your venue and wedding planner. In fact Ashley and Kamal hadn’t even visited their wedding venue before the day they got married. They ditched anything traditional that they didn’t like, and pulled inspiration from the dark and rich autumnal colours of the season, pairing that with the traditional glitz and glamour of vintage Las Vegas.

With a small, intimate ceremony at the Park MGM, they filled it full of all the things they loved, including a ring-warming ceremony. Ashley explained, “Our rings were passed through the attendees for them to put their blessings, prayers, warm thoughts and well wishes into (whatever speaks to them) before coming back to us for the ring exchange.” Although the guest list was small, the couple ensured friends and family around the world could witness their vows, livestreaming the event to watch from home.

Budget-Friendly Vegas Elopement With Wedding Day Tattoos

One year after becoming a couple, Anastasija proposed to Stephen on the beach like penguins do with a pebble! “We met while renting rooms in the same house,” she told us, “and for the first two years barely talked to one another, but then somehow we started hanging out and got really close and that was it!”

As the couple are not keen on the fuss and pretence that can often be associated with a big wedding, they decided to get married in Vegas and make an adventure out of it! In total they spent just £1600, including return flights to the US, and they didn’t scrimp on pieces to personalise their day either. Anastasija wore a tulle skirt from Stylish Bride with his n’ hers custom denim jackets made by the groom through his company Third Earth Clothing, and a bouquet, custom vans and bracelet from Reworked Customs

Not Your Usual Vegas Wedding: Rustic & Relaxed Warehouse Wedding

Courtney and Aaron wanted a casual wedding, with a relaxed and rustic vibe. They chose The Doyle, a warehouse turned chic industrial venue in downtown Las Vegas for the May wedding, with a very fun addition – the courtyard serves as a working farm where they have a variety of animals, from alpacas to goats to pigs roaming around. Not your average Vegas venue then! 

They incorporated teals and various shades of blues into their laid back day; one of the couples’ favourite details were their matching bedazzled Nikes. Courtney wore a David’s Bridal dress, with the bridesmaids in Birdy Grey.

A Romantic Desert Ceremony, An X-Rated Vegas Reception & A Geometric Irish Party!

There’s an old saying that some people enjoy getting married so much they go on to do it more than once, which was exactly true for Caroline and Michael – except this time, all three times were to each other! Buckle up dear reader, because this one is a whopper!

The couple spent €16,000 (total!) to have three celebrations, which is less than half of the usual wedding budget of a traditional Irish wedding – major props for the creativity and DIY efforts! A big fan of Rock n Roll Bride, Caroline wanted to find a way to express all the sides of their personalities and the best way she could come up with was to have three separate events.

As lovers of nature, they originally wanted to get married at the Grand Canyon, but the logistics were too much of a pain. A search on Instagram uncovered Rainbow Vista in the Valley of Fire, just outside of Vegas, and it was perfect. It gave them the opportunity to be in nature and have a connection to the earth. 

For the desert ceremony Caroline wore a BHLDN dress with crystal-encrusted Crown and Glory veil and El Jardin de Valentyna floral headpieces. “We’re so glad we decided to elope for our main ceremony,” Caroline said. “It felt amazing to walk into our little set up together and hear…nothing! The area was so peaceful and quiet, with just our celebrant and photographers. We did a handfasting with ribbons that we picked for their significance, then read our vows to each other. It was amazing to sit down afterwards and have our delicious cake together while looking out at such an incredible landscape, having that time just to process everything by ourselves.”
