Get engaged over the holidays and can’t wait to get into Vegas wedding planning? Save the dates are a fun way to help your guests get excited about travelling for your wedding. There are plenty of new designs for 2016, here are some of my favorite picks. Many are available in different colors or with customizable photos, so be sure to have fun and design a few!
The easy route is to go with a casino theme for your save the dates, of course. From retro signage to bold red and black coasters, here are some great options to consider.
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!
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.

Thursday was the night Paper & Home held their grand opening – a night that was a distinctly wintery and rainy in Las Vegas. The rain did not dampen spirits, however, and the event was a success.
As I pulled up to the new store space, bistro lights twinkled in the rain and the bright space inside Paper & Home packed with well wishers beckoned me in. Spicy hors d’oeuvres from nearby DW Bistro accompanied cider and sparkling wine to warm us up on the particularly chilly evening.
Funky music from DJ Daniel Martinez played as people pored over the luxe invitation samples, gorgeous gifts and assorted paper goods, exploring the space. The artful arrangements and outdoor furniture supplied by Naakiti Floral accented the pretty paper perfectly.
In addition to a large storefront, in the back there is a private conference room for clients to discuss their invitation and stationery needs. Inspiration can be found all around the shop, in books, on walls and on shelves.
The shop has a comfortable yet stylish feel featuring warm woods and natural light, perfect for highlighting the beautiful array of products available. My personal favorite items were the modern wrapping papers and brightly coordinated notepads and envelopes.
However the shop is not just limited to custom and ready to order wedding stationery, they also offer business clients corporate branding and website design and development. The space has changed, but the service remains the same – something you can read more about here – Tour Las Vegas’s Exceptional Stationery Studio, Paper & Home
