Sunday Funday: Get Lucky Edition

Welcome to another edition of Sunday Funday – a round up of the best in Vegas wedding news and links, plus some beautiful stuff from the rest of the wide world web of weddings!

So wedding season has once again begun to pick up in Las Vegas – seems like many of the cake shops, florists, officiants, planners and especially photographers have been busy as the weather cools down. Can’t wait to see what this season holds in store! (Meanwhile, I got my wish and there was a light dusting of snow in my area this week – yay!)

  • The Tropicana has unveiled two new venues for weddings and receptions. I’m a fan of the modern revamp at this classic Strip hotel, and these venues are gorgeous! Pictured above: the Havana Room with custom banquette-seating areas, three full-service bars, a dark wood dance floor and premium audio-visual technology, plus that stunning chandelier! There is also a pool side outdoor venue, Beach Club. Read more about the new venues.
