You can plan your Las Vegas theme wedding even if you can’t actually get there. Who stops you from creating a themed wedding extravaganza right where you are? All it takes is a little shopping and a lot of imagination. And you can create an evening, full of fun for all that come.
The Vegas Theme Invitation
The first step in wedding planning is the invitation. Announce your intentions for a Vegas theme in the invitation itself. Create an invitation that looks like a betting ticket or a card that includes a few playing cards with the invitation details. Your invitation card can even look like something from one of the hotels or casinos.
The Las Vegas Wedding Ceremony
How about decorating the venue of the wedding ceremony like a Vegas chapel? That will provide the perfect backdrop for the themed wedding ceremony. If you need more ideas you can go online to see some of the chapels there. Otherwise, you can just throw in a lot of bright colors and flashing lights for a Vegas taste.
Try using the red and black of playing cards as the main colors of the ceremony. It’s classy and not overdone. You can be more flashy at the reception.
The Vegas Theme Reception
Here is where the Vegas theme can really be played to the fullest extent. Start with casino flavored decorations. You can spread poker chips and cards on the tables, or make the tables a different hotel or casino name. Make the place cards in the style of playing cards with the guests name in the center.
To keep up with the theme, think of giving playing cards or chocolate poker chips as favors to your guests. Alternatively, you might want to give music compilations of Vegas related music with the date and couple’s name on the front.
The Vegas Style Cake
Of course, you would like to have the wedding cake in true Vegas style, shaped like a slot machine or a casino blackjack table. Do a bit of research and collect a few pictures of casinos. You will get many ideas to create a unique and beautiful cake.
Vegas music that is loud and boisterous will provide the exact effect of a Vegas wedding. After all, you are transporting the atmosphere of the city to your home, which is best done with its characteristic music. If you don’t like all the noise, you can have a lounge singer for the real Vegas feel.
Have a karaoke contest and get everyone to be a lounge singer for a while.
Last, but not the least, go to Las Vegas for your honeymoon after a grand Vegas wedding, and enjoy the city without having to bring everyone with you!
