Lady Luck was on your side when you met, and now you want to roll the dice and try your luck at a Las Vegas themed wedding! Recreating the glitz and glamour of a Vegas style wedding is as easy as finding an Elvis impersonator in a Vegas wedding chapel.
Choosing colors for your Las Vegas wedding is practically a no-brainer. Red and black are the obvious color choices, but you probably want to add a dose of something shiny – silver or gold – to bring home a taste of the glitzy Vegas. Decorating in these colors is going to be a simple task. Use the colors in everything from bridesmaid dresses to table linens to flowers. Your tables will look elegant and glamorous covered in black table cloths with a gold overlay or gold chair covers. Or how about red table covers for a bolder statement with gold chair covers tied in black satin?
The bride will want her gown to be elegant, of course, but this is Vegas, Baby, and a little extra beading or sequins will create the perfect look. Another choice would be a sleeker, simpler gown with a gold or silver sash. You might also find yourself feeling a little showgirl and choose from a wide array of available headpieces featuring feathers. They don’t have to be as big and elaborate as a real Vegas showgirl (unless you want them to!), but you will find a nice selection of smaller combs and headpieces that incorporate feathers. If feathers aren’t your thing, a sparkly tiara will compliment the theme perfectly. Your bridesmaids will look the part in either a gorgeous black number or the perfect red gown, but you will find all colors and styles on the Vegas strip, so you can certainly veer away from the Vegas color scheme and go with any color gown. You can keep with your theme by choosing beaded or sequined gowns for the attendants, and feathered combs for them as well. Tuxedos are certainly the order of the day for the men in the wedding party. You can opt to set the groom apart with all black accessories, while the groomsmen wear red; or you can put the groom in all white accessories and alternate the groomsmen in red and black. You could also opt to add sparkle to your husband-to-be with gold or silver accessories.
Let your guests know to come dressed to the nines with a formal invitation, choosing a red or black card with a coordinating satin ribbon; or opt for a simpler invitation with gold or silver ink. You will also find invitations that feature Swarovski crystals and feathers for a real Vegas flavor. There are invitations that have dice, playing cards, or even Elvis embossed on them, setting up your guests to expect a fabulous fun time at your wedding.
Floral arrangements for a Vegas wedding can take many forms. Go with an all white cascading bouquet for an elaborate look, incorporating gold ribbons or Swarovski crystals. Or go back to the red and black color scheme with an all red or all black bouquet. Either will look amazing wrapped in gold or silver with crystal accents. Your attendants can also carry an all red bouquet to complement a black dress; or choose a beautiful black tulip or black roses to accent a red dress. One thing about Las Vegas we’ve come to know and love is the buffet, and you can certainly treat your guests to an elaborate Vegas style buffet on virtually any budget. Heavy hors d’oeuvres are perfect for a cocktail type wedding reception, and you can have those displayed on a buffet or passed around by white gloved wait staff. You can also offer a full buffet dinner to your guests, trying to keep with a Vegas theme by offering the staples of the strip like prime rib, peel and eat shrimp, and crab legs. Use food stations as a contemporary alternative to a traditional buffet. An open bar is a great way to go, and if your budget allows, consider hiring extra wait staff dressed as casino bar hops to go to your guests to take drink orders.
Nothing will say Vegas to your guests as much as gambling, so consider playing a few games. Instead of wedding favors, have wedding money or chips made up and give each guest a stack of chips or a pile of money to play with. Choose easy games that everyone will be able to play like roulette, blackjack, or poker. Guests can cash out at the end of the night at a candy buffet.
Taking a gamble on love has been the easy part. Throw in an Elvis impersonator and you’ll have the Vegas wedding of your dreams, without leaving your own hometown.
