Are you a married couple who always wanted a Vegas wedding but opted for the more traditional ceremony? Do you still love each other and are looking for an excuse to declare your love to one another AND strike it rich at the craps table? Have you already been to Vegas five times in one year and are looking to justify that 6th trip? Consider renewing your vows in fabulous Las Vegas!
Vow renewal ceremonies are becoming more and more common. The wedding industry is taking this into consideration and is catering to couples who want to reaffirm their love for one another or celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. Las Vegas has certainly joined this movement and the hotels and casinos are offering packages not just for weddings, but for vow renewals as well. Whether you are looking for the kitschy drive-through wedding at one of the many chapels, or an elegant ceremony at one of the swanky hotels, Vegas has something for every taste.
Some ideas to renew vows in Las Vegas
For those couples who like to have fun and a good dose of rock and roll, you can't beat a vow renewal ceremony performed by the one and only Elvis Presley. Visit the website theweddingchapelinlasvegas.com and they give you a choice of packages where you can have the King himself perform the ceremony. If you can't bring your friends and family with you, they can watch the renewal live on a webcam!
At vivalasvegasweddings.com, there are many themes to choose from. Whether you are a Renaissance couple, a gothic couple, or have a thing for Cirque du Solei (where an aerial team performs during your ceremony), you can find it here.
Drive-through renewal ceremonies are a fun and light-hearted way to tell each other you would do it all over again. They are cheap and quick, and some chapels offer either a limousine or pink Cadillac as part of the package.
Of course if you want something more elegant, consider one of the fancier hotels on the Strip for your ceremony. Paris, Bellagio, Caesars, etc. all have packages specifically tailored for vow renewal ceremonies. Of course couples can have a little fun at the swanky hotels too. The Venetian, for example, has a package where couples can renew their vows while riding a gondola. The gondola is on a 'river' that runs throughout the hotel and the hotel's mall. Not exactly the way to have a private ceremony, but it's a lot of fun and perfect if you want to show off!
The best part about deciding to renew your vows in Vegas is that there is plenty of competition, and competition keeps costs down. Most packages that the venues offer include coordinators, so you literally don't have to do a thing except write a check and show up. A really important tip: don't forget when calling a venue, ask if they need to see proof of marriage, such as a marriage certificate. Some may require it and some may not. Also, be sure to book as early as possible. Vegas is famous for their weddings, and weekends fill up very quickly. It is also not unusual for weekday mornings to be booked either. That leaves the couple and their guests the rest of the day to gamble and celebrate!
