Las Vegas Wedding Tips

Here are Las Vegas wedding tips when it comes to choosing a venue. It takes a lot of time and research and can often be one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding. You need to make sure that your venue ticks all the right boxes before you make a final decision.

Your Las Vegas wedding venue will influence your budget as well as the atmosphere on the day so before you sign on the dotted line, below are three important things to consider before you decide on your wedding venue.

Three Las Vegas Wedding Tips For Venues

Wedding Party Size

  1. Look at how many people you’re planning to invite to your wedding versus the number of people the venue can comfortably cater for. A crowded reception can be quite uncomfortable and if a venue is too large, it can affect the atmosphere and the overall look and feel. Put an initial guest list together before you start venue shopping so that you can make a better decision.

What about drinks?

2.Alcohol and drinks are a big part of your wedding so it’s important to find out whether you can bring your own alcohol and what the costs are or if the venue will supply the drinks. Since you will also need a licensed bartender to serve alcohol, find out whether the venue can assist with this so that you can factor those costs into your final budget.

Preferred Vendors

3.You’re going to be working with several different vendors in the time leading up to and on your wedding day. Many venues require you to use their vendors so find out about this before you make a booking. If they do work with specific vendors, make sure that you’re happy with their experience, style, personality, and pricing. When a venue works with preferred vendors, it does mean they’re confident in their experience and ability to delivery but it’s more important for you to choose vendors that fit in with your budget and overall preferences.

Planning a Las Vegas Wedding With A Budget

3 Things That Could Affect Your Wedding Budget

Your budget is one of the first things that you will sit down and discuss when planning your Las Vegas wedding. It can also cause the most stress during the planning process. 

Below are 3 things that could affect your wedding budget and add to your wedding planning stress.

Where you wed. Your wedding location will play a leading role in the creation of your budget. Venues that are situated in popular areas will generally charge more. Smaller venues or elopement packages can be achieved on a smaller budget. Venues also have different packages and policies that you’ll need to consider. For example, some venues might require you to use their vendors, some of which might not fit in with your budget. A lot of venues have minimum catering requirements that may go beyond your guest list. It’s important to look at average costs of areas and venues before you make a final decision.

Having a Las Vegas wedding can be super costly or super affordable. If you are looking for more affordable options, consider an elopement package.

Time of the year. Wedding seasons make a big difference to costs. Planning to get married on a Saturday in the summer? Chances are you’re going to end up paying a lot more for your wedding. Look at your budget and how it fits in with the venue and location you have in mind and whether you can move your wedding to another season or day of the week to save on costs. Vendors might also be able to offer you discounts for off-peak days and seasons. 

The number of guests. This is one area that can very easily get out of control. Your guests are going to take up a large portion of your budget so it pays to be sensible about who you’re inviting. Most venues will charge you for everything from drinks and food to the chair your guest will be sitting on so think twice about inviting your aunt who you haven’t seen in 2 years. Agree on how many guests you want to invite and stick to it. 

If you want to stick to a wedding budget carefully plan your finances before you even begin planning your wedding. Working with a wedding planner can help you find better prices and keep you on track financially. 

In addition, when reaching out to vendors, some have weekday or group specials. Brianna Michelle Beauty offers group specials for parties of 6 or more. You can inquire here.

The Wedding Venue

The wedding planner, Emily Reno, did an especially phenomenal job planning a gorgeous wedding for Kathlyn and Jeremy.

Their wedding at the JW Marriott could not have been more perfect for these two!

We gave Kathlyn soft curls before pinning her hair up, because of this she was able to easily let down her hair for the party of a lifetime. As a result, this gave her an entirely new bridal look for the second half of the wedding.

With flowers galore and a smoke machine during their first dance, Kathlyn and Jeremy’s reception was an unforgettable one. In fact, the floral arch alone was enough to make any wedding lover swoon!

Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Why You Should Book A Trial

I recommend all of my clients book a trial when hiring me as their Las Vegas wedding makeup artist.

You may be wondering why it is so necessary to do this.

A hair and makeup trial can take a lot of weight off of your shoulders and also help you make important decisions for your wedding.

Here are 3 reasons why you should book a hair and makeup trial before your big day!

1. Meet Your Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist

Chances are, you haven’t been able to meet your hair and makeup artist before now.

This will give you the chance to meet them and to also get several items checked off your wedding planning list.

You can sign your contracts, put down deposits, and discuss the details of your wedding during this time!

2. You’ll See Yourself As A Bride For The First Time

You can try on your dress and jewelry after your trial to finally see the full look come together.

Most brides don’t know exactly what they’re going looking on their wedding day until their trial. You probably don’t know either unless you had false lashes and an updo when you bought your dress.

You will never regret taking the opportunity to see how everything will look together!

3. It’s The Perfect Time To Take Your Bridals

You probably know by now that it’s smart to get as much checked off your wedding to do list as you can in one day.

Hair and makeup artist, as well as wedding photographers, are usually booked on the weekends. Weddings and other events take up a lot of their schedule.

If you can coordinate dates between these two vendors, it will work out perfectly for you to take your bridals during the week.

Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Planning A Stress-Free Destination Wedding

As a Las Vegas wedding makeup artist, I always meet brides who could use some help with wedding planning.

Wedding planning can be stressful when you have so many decisions to make and barely enough time. When it comes to a Las Vegas destination wedding, stress should be the last thing on your mind.

Fun, freedom, and love are the theme of our city. These are the feelings we want you to associate with your wedding day.

Here are some tips to keep your cool during the planning process.

1. Hire A Las Vegas Wedding Planner

Your wedding planner will help you during your engagement and on your wedding day more than anyone else.

Especially if you’re from out of town, choose to hire a Las Vegas destination wedding planner.

Local wedding planners know all of the best vendors and places to get married.

Your wedding planner can vouch for you at meetings and sign contracts if you aren’t able to make it. Plus, they will be able to run errands and zip up your dress if you choose to elope without any bridesmaids.

2. Visit Your Venue

If you can, plan to tour your venue beforehand.

If you’re trying to pick between two venues, use this time to visit both locations and make a decision. The rest of your wedding planning revolves around your venue choice so this is important!

You can schedule any necessary appointments to meet with vendors and finalize details during this trip. You will feel a lot more relaxed knowing the big decisions are taken care of.

Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Artist | Alyse and Ken

This glam bride chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist for her special day. We loved getting to create this old Hollywood look for our gorgeous bride.

Alyse and Ken were absolutely stunning with a wedding at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. It was the perfect spot with plenty of room because it was just the two of them!

I mean, let’s talk about what a showstopper that dress is! With her dress making such a bold statement, Alyse really wanted her hair and makeup to have an effortless look. As a result, Ken couldn’t keep his eyes off her!

The Las Vegas Wedding Makeup Look

Alyse really wanted her eyes to pop so we added lots of lashes with a little smoke. We kept her eyeshadow colors a natural, bronze hue and mixed in some highlight to give her that extra glow on her cheekbones.

Alyse was not used to wearing a lot of lipstick so we went with a nude lip and a lot of gloss on top.

The neckline of Alyse’s dress was so eye-catching and a side swept hairstyle with a slide clip proved to be the perfect complement.

The Wedding Venue

The backdrop for the ceremony was epic! If you are a bride who is wanting a more unique and unconventional wedding ceremony, the Neon Museum is the perfect place that brings old world Vegas with a modern, hipster approach.

This is such a cool venue for all kinds of events. Lots of couples choose to have their engagement photos shot here, too!

Alyse and Ken were so happy with the outcome of their Las Vegas destination wedding! We couldn’t be more thrilled for this couple and wish them all the best going forward with their new marriage. We are so glad Alyse chose us as her Las Vegas wedding makeup artist because we loved being apart of their day.
