Hot. Steamy. Sunny.
That’s what the weather in Las Vegas is like during traditional wedding season, May through August. Vegas is even hot April through October, depending on where you are coming from. That makes it the perfect place to wear a stylishly short wedding gown!
If you are trying to stay on budget with your wedding, you may not have thought to look to non-traditional wedding gown sources for some short, modern wedding dress options. The 10 options below from ModCloth are perfect for summer wedding in Vegas – or spring or summer! These are also great options for a second dress, for use in a photo session or at your reception or after-party.
Pair the dress with a shrug or bolero jacket for the ceremony and then take it off for a more revealing look during the reception. The best feature, I think is that the dresses are completely re-wearable, for anniversary dinners or any other occasion to remind you of your wedding day.
The selections below range from $72.99-$487.99, with most priced around $120. What a steal!
A-line full skirted dresses are flattering for all heights and shapes and Dinner Party Darling is a perfect example. Alternating matte and shiny fabric with an accenting bow belt in front and detailed buttons up the back, you will look good from all angles in this pretty little party dress. I think it would look especially striking with a pair of boldly colored kitten heels while being wed against the golden backdrop of Red Rock Canyon at sunset.
This dress, Love You Ivory Day, features satin fabric, a v-neck with little cap sleeves, making it perfect for a little chapel wedding. Add a vintage brooch or birdcage veil and it’s Mad Men-tastic!
This form fitting mini dress called Two Way is reversible, but not in the way you expect! It’s colored two ways – white facing your groom while walking down the aisle, black to your guests as you head out the church door to your honeymoon!
Aisle Be There is a cream colored beauty by designer Trashy Diva and is anything BUT trashy! It offers a classic bustline to enhance your decolletage and a slight candlelight shimmer to the material. Gorgeous.
This frothy little number, Swan Dance, features a stylish cutout neck edged with sparkling sequins, topping off a soft tulle skirt and asymmetrical back. And you will not believe the price for this level of beading.
Are you a Palm Frond Bombshell? Or maybe just looking for a dress suitable for a tropical wedding or vow renewal at Mandalay Bay or Tropicana? Stop Staring brings you this halter necked 1950s dress with a tiki vibe.
Beautiful and Unique Snowflake is a Grecian styled gown perfect for sunset vows at Caesars Palace! With an airy drop hem currently in style but a sheer asymmetrical strap, this dress offers mega trend points but is still understated and classy. The “snowflake” in the name refers to tiny polka-dots all over the sheer overlay. Sparkling accessories would make this dress come alive.
Clouds…or flowers? What do you see in Beneath the Clouds? This quaint layered dress by Orla Keily would be beautiful with a ribbon at the waist, or just on its own. Wonderful for weddings up in the sky like Stratosphere or on the rooftop of Platinum Hotel!
Made to Border is another modern black and white minidress, this time featuring lacy detailing. Equally at home at a chic in-suite cocktail reception or elopement, the black and white would go make it easy to co-ordinate with other wedding details.
If you didn’t see a little white dress you like, don’t worry, ModCloth has got you covered with over 100 other sortable white dress choices.

After I had so much fun coming up with Vegas save the date postcard designs, I couldn’t help but make some invitations! Here are a selection of highly customizable wedding invites for Las Vegas weddings from the super fun stationery site, Minted.
What I like about their invitations is that they are not super over the top – they look a little handmade, a little original and they’re a lot unexpected for a Vegas wedding!
Vegas Type highlights a trend in wedding invitations – mixed font sizes – with playing card suits.
The 1950s style Lucky in Love captures the vintage era of Rat Pack days with the starburst details and fancy fonts.
Bet on Love has peppy colors, trendy icons and a gorgeous details shape – if you don’t like the curved edges, it’s available in straight cuts, too.
Want a dash of gambling but also like to keep it simple? Hearts + Spades may be the invitation style for you.
Having an outdoor wedding at the Springs Preserve or in the desert? Sunday Succulent uses pale hues mixed with the harder edges of arid succulents on its natural design.
Bonjour Paris - perfect for Paris, France, or Paris Las Vegas Resort weddings! (Thinking outside of the box, here)
Goin’ to the Chapel would be absolutely lovely to highlight your little Vegas Strip chapel wedding.
So there you have it! Seven no-so-Vegas Las Vegas wedding invitations!

Magnets and postcards remain nifty, thrifty ways to alert guests to your upcoming wedding date – and a fun thing to send in the mail! I’ve received many since my friends started getting married, showcasing just about everything from a themed engagement shoot to fun photos from Instagram or a photobooth, or just a tropical themed card for a beachy destination wedding.
I spent some time poking around Wedding Paper Divas to see what was new and on offer (it’s been a few years since I had to shop for save the dates!) and had too much fun coming up with a few of these designs. It’s super fun and easy, and they look pretty professional, I think.
They do not necessarily have to match your invitation suite, making them a super fun way to excite your guests. The site has a variety of Las Vegas-centric save the dates available, in addition to more general designs in magnets or circle cut cards.
Here are some of the designs I made, in about half an hour:
“Diamond Date” reminds me of an old school casino sign!
“Las Vegas” is customizable in hundreds of colors
This iconic couple is highlighting the “Iconic Vegas” design
Can you imagine if Wills and Kate got married in Vegas? Maybe Prince Harry’s antics a few months ago wouldn’t have been such a big deal…
“Seaside Palms” is a premium themography card, perfect for understated, classy events
“Darling Deuce” adds some gambling flair to your stationery
In addition to the over 400 save the date designs and thousands of personalizations, Wedding Paper Divas also offers announcements for elopements, to send to those who could not make it to your destination wedding. It’s a great site to order cards, get some inspiration, or have fun like I did for this post!
