While hashtagging your wedding for people to post on social media is fun, do you know what’s even more fun? Setting up a real photobooth. With props. And custom logos and backgrounds. And a camera that won’t be at the mercy of low lighting, get blurry or run out of juice part way through the night.
Since their debut, photobooths have remained a fixture at many weddings, giving you and your guests a fun activity to do. And in the case of Las Vegas wedding, they can add yet another level of Sin City fun to your wedding night. Dress up the booth with Elvis sunglasses, huge blinged-out $ sign necklaces and feather boas for people to play with. Not convinced? Check out the photographic evidence…
Lightweight, portable and fun, there’s a whole new generation of photobooths for your Vegas wedding. These photobooths even allow you to set them up in hotel suite receptions. Taylored Photo Memories has one of these amazing mobile photobooths which packs down to about the size of a suitcase, meaning that it can get up to your hotel wedding party without anyone knowing. (Except for all the fun photo evidence you have the next day!)
Taylored Photo Memories has a variety of packages for their modern wedding photobooth, but I like the Double Down Package best. It gives you the best bang for your buck as it includes:
delivery, setup and teardown
two hours of photobooth time
one print per photo session with three photos a strip
an on-site technician
custom print design that will match your wedding theme.
Also included? The fun part: props!
All this for $575. Add-ons are also available, including social media sharing, duplicate prints, a guestbook, different backdrops, additional time and more. Inquire for exact pricing or head here to see more example images.
What else is awesome about them? Well, of course, the high-quality camera and lighting equipment. But these booths also accommodate large groups (no more squeezing everyone in behind the curtain!) include many different backgrounds (including some Vegas landmarks) and on-site printing and help from an on-site attendant. Great when people start to enjoy the cocktails a little later into the night.
To top off the awesomeness that are Taylored Photo Memories’ mobile Vegas wedding photobooths, they are also giving away a photobooth package to one lucky couple. Yup! You could win a photobooth for your Vegas wedding.

One of my all-time favorite posts to do for LVW was a post on unique men’s wedding rings. I mean, a ring made out of deer antler or dinosaur bone? How awesome is that?
I thought I would expand on the rings featured with more. Way more. Think 28 gorgeously unique wedding rings for men. Rings you are unlikely to find at the local mall that express individuality and personality. Check ‘em out!

Their pop-up weddings combine the fun of an impulsive elopement a with contemporary design that will allow you to show your individuality.
A package with Flora Pop gets you the most essential things for a Vegas wedding: your officiant Victoria Hogan and transportation for up to four people to and from your wedding site of choice in a vintage-style trailer built specially for weddings. “The Teardrop”, modeled after a 1950′s Kenskill trailer, took four months of loving construction to create it. It even comes complete with custom neon signage because this is Vegas, baby!
Venue Options From the perfect peachy desert sky sunrise to a location overlooking The Strip as night falls and the lights come on, the Teardrop gives Flora Pop weddings a retro style perfect for Vegas vows. This little trailer can turn almost any location into a mobile wedding chapel, from classic downtown motel backdrops to stunning desert vistas. Victoria and Flora Pop will work with you to figure out exactly the best location for your wedding and meet you there!

Optional add-ons to complete your ceremony include custom floral bouquets designed by Floral Pop Shop, wedding donuts from O Face Doughnuts, champagne toasts, rings & even photography.

But, on to the pretty! To show off the Teardrop and the floral designs of Flora Pop, here is the trailer in three different wedding sites, all photographed by Gaby J Photography, complete with Gaby’s signature instant photos to complete that vintage feel. The pink haired lady in the photos? That’s Victoria, the owner of Flora Pop.
Every Monday this year we are highlighting a unique Vegas wedding venue in the Ultimate Vegas Wedding Guide! Today a little Western town known by many names is featured: Eldorado Canyon, Nelson Ghost Town, Nelson’s Landing and Techatticup Mine may ring a bell.
Eldorado Canyon is a unique venue that will appeal to those of you seeking a rustic, vintage style Vegas wedding. This former gold mine is whimsically Western and includes a good dose of nature and style of the late 1800s. Eldorado offers desert landscape and the beautiful cholla cacti amongst the collection of vintage vehicles, antiques, abandoned buildings…even a crashed airplane! The photo opportunities are endless and can be customized to match your personal style. It’s an extremely unique venue for untraditional weddings near Las Vegas.
It is possible to independently set up your wedding at Eldorado Canyon, however this can be stressful for destination couples as Nelson is about 45 minutes drive from Las Vegas, and is minimal when it comes to facilities. Doing a DIY wedding here can be a lot of work. I get many questions about using this venue for weddings and elopements, so thought I would ask City Weddings, a company who is truly an expert when it comes to Eldorado Canyon weddings, to tell us a bit about their weddings at this fantastic venue.
City Weddings provides affordable all-inclusive packages at Eldorado for elopements and small weddings, and can make sure your wedding goes smoothly and easily. No small feat for what is effectively an authentic abandoned mining town in the desert! Their packages include transportation for up to 50 guests, photography, a minister and ceremony and even a small post-ceremony celebration package before you head back to the glittering lights of Las Vegas.
Venue Options at Eldorado Canyon
The Main Barn, Cactus Barn and Cactus Garden are the three most popular venues for weddings in this western desert town. For those looking for an intimate lofty feel that is protected from the elements of the desert, the Main Barn is likely best option. There are countless areas for unique photography and exploring around the property, so be brave and adventurous!
Pricing + Catering
The elopement package for two, including a limo ride to Eldorado Canyon, photographer for 2.5 hours and 50 edited images, a minister, site permit, Champagne toast, all filing of marriage paperwork is priced at $1,490. Each additional guest is $25.
For larger weddings, a party bus for 18, a photographer for 3.5 hours and 50 edited images, minister, site permit, burlap aisle runner, chairs and a refreshment package with Champagne toast, soft drinks, peanuts and cupcakes is priced at $2,770. Each additional guest is $25, up to a maximum of 50.
There is no electricity for a sound system, but this would be a perfect opportunity to use an acoustic guitarist
As with most desert environments, dehydration is a factor and you should keep the season and associated temperatures in mind when booking
There are environment hazards around this authentic desert town: nails, glass, and cactus abound, so appropriate shoes are necessary
Restroom facilities are available
If you choose to independently book the venue for your wedding and reception, you should know there is no on-site kitchen, and you would have to bring in everything via truck if you wanted to have a larger reception: rented chairs, tables, staffing and so on. It’s a challenging venue and help is definitely recommended. Read about DIY weddings at Eldorado Canyon
This is the Vegas of the Old West, and is a great experience to see off Strip locations, providing more unique and fun opportunities for you and your guests
Fall and spring offer the ideal desert temperatures for weddings, with sunset having the best lighting

Some of you readers are just beginning your Vegas wedding planning escapade. If so: welcome! If you are new to the world of weddings, you’ve probably already heard and used the “B” word: “budget.” It can dominate most wedding conversations you have, especially in the early days, and rightfully so. Staying on budget is important to your wallet and relationship’s health!
One of the best spots to save a little bit of time and money is by choosing your wedding stationery carefully. Little Vegas Wedding partner Ann’s Bridal Bargains offers a great selection of discount wedding invitations that allow you to express who you are as a couple, but not go overboard with the expense. Is it possible to stay on budget and plan a wedding that’s uniquely you? Yes! And Ann’s is dedicated to helping you make that happen.
Ann’s Bridal Bargains invitations offer a wide selection of styles and designs, but one of my favorites are the Separate and Send wedding invites. These affordable invitations have a clever, perforated design that prints all three pieces of your wedding stationery ensemble at once, saving you big bucks…and time! No DIY cutting of pieces, either.
These invitation bundles include the invitation as well as the detachable response card and reception card on one convenient sheet. Everything is coordinated, and can be customized to your wedding colors, theme or personal style and interests as a couple. You can choose your color and can create your own unique wording online, and even add photos to several designs!
Here are some of my favorite designs from the Separate and Send collection:
Perfect for a poolside wedding is the palm tree embellished “Heartwarming” suite.
Love fonts and typefaces? Check out the “Presenting” suite!
Guests will get excited about your destination wedding with these airplane themed “Destination Romance” invites.
Simple and modern, “Love Spell” reflects the purple theme of Aria’s wedding chapel!
You can see the full selection of affordable Separate and Send invites. Orders can be made for as few as 25 invites, perfect for smaller Vegas weddings.
The most important thing you need to know about Ann’s Bridal Bargains selection of “cheap” wedding invitations is that there is nothing cheap about them. Even the most impressive wedding invitation design becomes dull and disappointing if not beautifully printed and presented on the right kind of paper. If you’re not convinced, they even offer free samples so you can see before you purchase!
Ann’s Bridal Bargains has crafted a special offer for Little Vegas Wedding readers, valid through the end of the summer. Get an extra 15% off your wedding invitation order with code Vegas15. This offer is valid through 8/31/2014.
