Las Vegas Wedding Theme
Lady Luck was on your side when you met, and now you want to roll the dice
and try your luck at a Las Vegas themed wedding! Recreating the glitz and
glamour of a Vegas style wedding is as easy as finding an Elvis impersonator in
a Vegas wedding chapel.
Choosing colors for your Las Vegas wedding is practically a no-brainer. Red and
black are the obvious color choices, but you probably want to add a dose of
something shiny – silver or gold – to bring home a taste of the glitzy Vegas.
Decorating in these colors is going to be a simple task. Use the colors in
everything from bridesmaid dresses to table linens to flowers. Your tables will
look elegant and glamorous covered in black table cloths with a gold overlay or
gold chair covers. Or how about red table covers for a bolder statement with
gold chair covers tied in black satin?
The bride will want her gown to be elegant, of course, but this is Vegas, Baby,
and a little extra beading or sequins will create the perfect look. Another
choice would be a sleeker, simpler gown with a gold or silver sash. You might
also find yourself feeling a little showgirl and choose from a wide array of
available headpieces featuring feathers. They don’t have to be as big and
elaborate as a real Vegas showgirl (unless you want them to!), but you will find
a nice selection of smaller combs and headpieces that incorporate feathers. If
feathers aren’t your thing, a sparkly tiara will compliment the theme perfectly.
Your bridesmaids will look the part in either a gorgeous black number or the
perfect red gown, but you will find all colors and styles on the Vegas strip, so
you can certainly veer away from the Vegas color scheme and go with any color
gown. You can keep with your theme by choosing beaded or sequined gowns for the
attendants, and feathered combs for them as well. Tuxedos are certainly the
order of the day for the men in the wedding party. You can opt to set the groom
apart with all black accessories, while the groomsmen wear red; or you can put
the groom in all white accessories and alternate the groomsmen in red and black.
You could also opt to add sparkle to your husband-to-be with gold or silver
Let your guests know to come dressed to the nines with a formal invitation,
choosing a red or black card with a coordinating satin ribbon; or opt for a
simpler invitation with gold or silver ink. You will also find invitations that
feature Swarovski crystals and feathers for a real Vegas flavor. There are
invitations that have dice, playing cards, or even Elvis embossed on them,
setting up your guests to expect a fabulous fun time at your wedding.
Floral arrangements for a Vegas wedding can take many forms. Go with an all
white cascading bouquet for an elaborate look, incorporating gold ribbons or
Swarovski crystals. Or go back to the red and black color scheme with an all red
or all black bouquet. Either will look amazing wrapped in gold or silver with
crystal accents. Your attendants can also carry an all red bouquet to complement
a black dress; or choose a beautiful black tulip or black roses to accent a red
One thing about Las Vegas we’ve come to know and love is the buffet, and you can
certainly treat your guests to an elaborate Vegas style buffet on virtually any
budget. Heavy hors d’oeuvres are perfect for a cocktail type wedding reception,
and you can have those displayed on a buffet or passed around by white gloved
wait staff. You can also offer a full buffet dinner to your guests, trying to
keep with a Vegas theme by offering the staples of the strip like prime rib,
peel and eat shrimp, and crab legs. Use food stations as a contemporary
alternative to a traditional buffet. An open bar is a great way to go, and if
your budget allows, consider hiring extra wait staff dressed as casino bar hops
to go to your guests to take drink orders.
Nothing will say Vegas to your guests as much as gambling, so consider playing a
few games. Instead of wedding favors, have wedding money or chips made up and
give each guest a stack of chips or a pile of money to play with. Choose easy
games that everyone will be able to play like roulette, blackjack, or poker.
Guests can cash out at the end of the night at a candy buffet.
Taking a gamble on love has been the easy part. Throw in an Elvis impersonator
and you’ll have the Vegas wedding of your dreams, without leaving your own
