Family-Focused, Fun Vegas Wedding with a Pizza Party Reception

Adelina and Aiden chose to make their April 2022 Vegas wedding family-focused as, prior to their celebration, neither of them had seen their families for over two years! “I cried tears of joy for weeks when New Zealand opened up for travel post-pandemic,” Adelina told us. “Initially we sped up our wedding and just thought we’d elope, but the guest list kept on growing. We had people join us from New Zealand, Singapore, Australia and the UK.”

With no planned theme in mind, the order of the day was to bring the fun! They kept things super simple, booking a bouquet with Bloomsday and a Vegas- themed cake with the ubiquitous Cakedup Lv and let the rest flow naturally!

A Jailhouse Rock Elopement in Melbourne

Corey and Brandon, from Melbourne, absolutely did not want a big, expensive wedding. Instead, they spent less than $5k (AU) to elope at The Altar Electric, a wedding chapel in their hometown. The venue provided all the décor and the Elvis officiant – they simply hired their photographer, found outfits and showed up!

Corey rocked a short sequin dress from Zara with Vans and a denim jacket (to which she added the patches herself), while Brandon was in jeans and also a DIY denim jacket.

“We were originally going to elope in Vegas but couldn’t because of COVID restrictions,” they told us, “so wanted to do something as close as possible to that. We wanted the day to represent us. We wanted it to be fun. We weren’t trying to be different just wanted it to be us.”

Booze-Themed Glam Rock Wedding with an Elvis Officiant

With playful and fun vows, full of Elvis puns in honour of their officiant, Kylie and Chris filled their day with the things they loved.

Kylie is a booze publicist, so they created a customised menu for their day. Sticking to their theme, they wanted the menu to really stand out and named all of the cocktails after their favourite Eagles’ songs. She told us, “I took the beverages very seriously! The Libations Menu was carefully curated, and I worked with the team at Backyard Originals (they’re a local team of bartenders that make liquor ready mixers) to create customised cocktail mixers so my cocktails could be pre-batched for easier service and to eliminate a wait at the bar.”

Flowers were mostly shunned in favour of disco balls, although $300+ worth of hot pink baby’s breath adorned the tables in gorgeous displays by Lucky Dog Studio. Kylie told explained, “My bouquet and Chris’ boutonniere were from Old City’s Petit Jardin en Ville – they were dried floral so we could keep them as keepsakes and are more sustainable. I also had a couple of dried Australian native flowers in my bouquet, as I’m an Aussie!”

Glam Vintage Vegas Wedding at the Neon Graveyard

Amber and Christopher are a couple who weren’t afraid to buck tradition so an intimate wedding ceremony, held at the oh-so-cool Neon Graveyard in Las Vegas was perfect for their glam, retro inspired day them!

“We wanted a wedding that was more ‘us’ and was fun”, Amber told us. “We don’t really love dancing or the traditional wedding activities. We were married by an Elvis that we didn’t tell our guests about beforehand! We asked our guests to wear their Vegas best which included feathers, sequins and fun prints.”

Vegas or Bust: a COVID Elopement with a Vintage Sequin Jumpsuit

Emily and Casey decided just 5 days before heading to Las Vegas that they were going to tie the knot! “We had originally planned a much larger celebration with friends in Mexico,” the bride told us, “but that got postponed and we didn’t want to wait to get married. We’ll still have the big party next year, but I’m so glad we did what we did.”

They hired Gaby J Photography to document the occasion, and as a wedding photographer herself, Emily was particularly enamoured that Gaby only shot on film. “It really made every photograph so much more special to us.”

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

No-Fuss, All Disco: Vegas Meets True Romance Wedding Ideas You Will Love!

There’s no denying that Vegas, and Vegas style weddings are vey vey veyyyy popular with Rock n Roll brides. But not everyone can fly over to Sin City for their nuptials, which is why we LOVE this Vegas meets glitz inspired shoot send to us by Toronto based Dream Weaver Events., created in partnership with LoveShackTO.

Event planner and designer Shana told us all about their celebratory shoot. “The inspiration came from LoveShackTO’s break into the industry. Nataleigh had a dream of creating an amazing, pocket-sized rock and roll space where couples who were looking for something more than City Hall but less than all the pomp and circumstance, could go, get married, and have beers after with their best friends. The dream actually came about long before the pandemic hit, and it actually just ended up fitting perfectly with couples needing an option for pint-sized weddings.”

Colourful Vegas Wedding with a Chotronette Dress

Liam and Tara’s September wedding was inspired one thing; their journey together. Meeting at 17 and being each other’s first loves, they’ve had a rocky road to get to where they now are and so wanted to celebrate not only the things that they like together, but also as individuals. This translated as a fun, geeky mismatch of inspirations; comic books, unicorns, Disney, Alice in Wonderland… the list goes on!

With a £2,500 budget though, they didn’t focus on material things, instead ploughing their funds into creating experiences; booking to get wed in Vegas so they got a trip out of the day too, DIY-ing elements together in the run up and working together to make the experience fun for their guests as well as themselves. “It’s should be all about the marriage,” explained Tara, “and not just the one day – so we didn’t stress about the little things and just had fun with it!”

Soft yet Edgy Vegas Elopement with a Pale Pink Dress

Leanne and Jason just wanted something easy for their wedding day – something that focused on just the two of them, with no pressure other than getting some rock star photos on the way! 

As massive fans of The Hangover, the knew that there was nowhere else in the world that they would rather elope to than Vegas! “We wanted an epic holiday out of it and just to go with the flow,” said Leanne, “so made very little plans and winged 90% of the day. We didn’t really set a budget, knowing that whatever we did it would cost us less than a traditional wedding in the UK and we’d have an epic time to remember!”

Low Key Vegas Hotel Suite Wedding with Take Out, Donuts & 70s Flair

The inspiration behind Lee-Anne and Keegan’s November wedding was a bit of an inside joke – they’d been to Vegas together the previous year and joked around about how fun it would to get married there. They got engaged at the top of a mountain in their homeland of Canada, and while climbing down Lee-Anne said, “So, are we still getting married in Vegas then?” and that was that!

They chose Vegas as primarily they wanted their day to be fun and for all their guests to have a good time. They had an Elvis for laughs and entertainment and Chinese take out and donuts for dinner. It was a super small and intimate affair; fun, non-traditional yet classy.

Rustic Meets Industrial Cinema Themed Winter Wedding Party

They say that you’ll meet the love of your life when you least expect it, and that was really true for Zak and Saba – they were very lucky to meet by pure chance on a random weekday afternoon whilst Saba was working as a retail assistant and Zak came in to buy a suit! 

Their wedding party was held in between Christmas and New Years at Hotel du Vin, Bristol, so they wanted a festive, party-vibe for the day. This was fitting with the fact that they were married already, at a ceremony in Las Vegas earlier in the year, so their day was a celebration of that.

Intimate Las Vegas Wedding with a Black Dress & Neon Green Veil!

Christine and Eddie’s elopement is like a lot of the Vegas weddings we feature in so much as they had a quickie quickie chapel ceremony and spent the afternoon waltzing around the city taking fabulous photos. The thing that really made their day stand out to us though was Christine’s INCREDIBLE one-of-a-kind outfit, it’s not every day we see a bride rocking a (home made!) neon green veil!

They were married in August at A Little White Wedding Chapel. “The idea for our wedding was for it to be Vegas, fun and intimate”, said the bride. “We honestly did not use much for inspiration, we wanted to just do our own thing and do it in a way that we would love and remember. We wanted to keep it about us and just have fun with it.”

“I definitely think our outfits were very unique. They are not something that a bride and groom normally wear. I always loved the idea of having a black wedding dress and my green veil was  just green tulle I bought and put in with bobby pins! Eddie’s gold suit went perfect with my black dress and the wedding location. I also had a necklace made that says ‘Edine’, which is the couple name we gave ourselves.”

Colour. Laughter. Desert Magic. These are just a few ways to describe today’s gorgeous vow renewal in Las Vegas!

Talk about winning the jackpot!

They had their fun-filled ceremony at A Little White Wedding Chapel in their infamous Tunnel of Love. “Elvis was in full character the minute we arrived and made a fuss of us,” began Rebecca, “from helping with my shoes and asking what song we wanted him to sing, to going crazy when our photographer said she was called Lisa Marie!”
