Vegas Wedding

Listen folks, weddings are expensive!

I’m here to help you (and your parents pocketbooks). Three words: Little White Chapel.

I’ve gone ahead and done the following price breakdown for you:
2 Round-Trip Plain Tickets to Vegas (Southwest)……….$822.80
3 Night stay at The Flamingo ………………………………$328.38
Dott Photography………………………………….$3,150.00 (4 hours)
Flowers (Gina Louisa Designs….naturally)………..$115.00 (bouquet & boutonniere)
The Little White Chapel ‘Lover’s Package’………………..$229.00
A Dress………………………………………………………….$200.00
A Suit…………………………………………………………….$200.00
______________________________________________________________________

TOTAL BILL (Before tax)………………………………….$5,040.18

So if you’re eager to tie the knot and you just don’t seem to have the funds of a Kardashian, then you might consider a weekend trip to Las Vegas! While I’m sure that you all had minor heart attacks when you saw the price of photography, I assure you that amazing photos are all that really matter in the end. I found that Dott Photography happened to have some of the only fabulous looking photos of Vegas themed weddings available online. Most Little White Chapel pictures look as though they were taken with a disposable camera. This probably has everything to do with the fact that most of their wedding packages includes photography. (They never said it was ‘good’ photography)

When all is said and done, you just need to ask yourself what’s more important: Spending the money and sharing your big day with your entire family, while potentially going broke at the same time? OR Running off to Vegas for a weekend, coming home later to celebrate with family & friend, and using that extra money to put a down payment on a home.

I completely understand the need to have family around to share in the joy, but I just feel like budgets nowadays seem to be getting considerably smaller. Just a thought.
