I don’t think I have to tell you, that getting married in Las Vegas is full of excitement and adventure. However, for those of you looking to take it to the next level, I can only recommend one thing: incorporating a helicopter into your wedding day!
These two jaw-dropping locations surround your wedding vows in incredible scenery, vistas with unbelievable colors and other amazing sights for outdoor weddings that only Mother Nature could provide.
No, seriously, check it out:
Whether you are a nature-lover, thrill-seeker or have just always longed to see some incredible world famous destinations, Maverick Helicopters has you covered. The first-class helicopter company excels at providing wedding around — and above — Las Vegas to ensure your marriage starts with an exhilarating adventure and gets your hearts racing.
The romance of a private helicopter flight is something you will never forget, even on a day as memorable as your wedding!
Fly to the Grand Canyon to get married at one of the most famous natural formations in the world! Your private helicopter pilot will provide a birds-eye view of the Vegas valley as they guide you over the stunning Lake Las Vegas, past the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, before descending 3,500 feet below the rim of the Grand Canyon. It is here, at an exclusive and private landing spot, where your ceremony will take place.
Or exchange vows at Valley of Fire State Park as the sun drops from the sky, casting red light over the amazing geological features of VoF. Fly over the architectural wonder of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead before you catch sight of the spectacularly famous red sandstone formations of Valley of Fire. You are married on a private plateau overlooking the amazing scenery (and get photos there, too!)
Post-ceremony, celebrate with some sweet bites and bubbles before finishing with a night-time flight with a stunning view of The Strip, leaving the night to you as newlyweds.
Most weddings run four to five hours, typically, and range in cost from $1,099 to $4,299. All packages include your ground transportation to and from the airport, your private flight, minister, hors d’oeuvres and Champagne. There are options to add-on special touches like a photographer, floral touches and cake to complete the experience should you wish.
Foil-pressed, shimmery invitations are on trend for 2015 weddings. Conveniently, I think they are incredibly suitable for Vegas weddings, too. The multi-dimensional designs are modern with a touch of glam, alluding to the stylish and high-energy venues available in the city.
These wedding invitations are also decidedly New Years Eve inspired, which is fitting as this post will end the year for Little Vegas Wedding. You may have noticed I’ve lightened the posting recently as I’ve had a pretty heavy work schedule at my day job, so I’m taking a bit of a holiday hiatus and much needed break. But I’ll be back at it in 2015. Lots of amazing weddings and a really lovely vow renewal are queued up. Have a great Christmas!
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!
