Las Vegas is famed as being the city of fun! If you want to go big and bold, it is tough to beat the sin city and all the entertainment it offers. The sheer energy of Vegas makes it the perfect theme for a wedding reception or cocktail party. The vibrant essence of Las Vegas, its fancy hotels, bustling casinos, lively night clubs, the bright lights and even brighter people make it one of the most enjoyable wedding themes to incorporate into your nuptials. You may not be having a shot-gun wedding at a Las Vegas chapel, but you can definitely go all out and throw a party to remember.

Vegas themed events are hugely popular around the world especially for wedding parties, bachelor or bachelorette events and birthdays and for good reason. There are bits and pieces of what this city is all about that appeals to almost everyone on different levels. Planning a Las Vegas themed wedding event is not as tough as it looks; it’s all about the mood you create, and yes a flamboyant atmosphere is vital here. The ambience should be all about indulgence for this wedding theme!

The first thing that comes to mind when you think of Las Vegas is the busy casinos and the gorgeous hotels they are housed in. They are well lit and largely over the top. One of the more important things you will have to decide on when it comes to the wedding décor is the lighting. Over the top bright lights, lava lamps and flashing strobe lights in areas where guests can let loose and dance are perfect for recreating that Vegas nightclub mood. Plan for dimmer more sophisticated muted lighting at the areas where you plan to house the casino section. Go for a more opulent palette where your colour scheme is concerned for a hotel-like feel. Add splashes of metallic colours like gold and copper for some glitz. Another Las Vegas staple is the gigantic food buffets so having a buffet meal with a nice mix of cuisines will be your best bet. A special wedding cocktail will also be a cute touch. Since it will probably be a late night and an activity filled one at that, make sure you have some coffee and plenty of other beverages at hand.

Arrange for roulette, poker and blackjack tables where guests can gamble and lay bets. Since you won’t be playing for money it will be fun to have special favours and gifts made for winners, unique to your wedding. Some interesting favours include decks of cards with your names and the wedding date printed on them, custom made dice, chocolates or sweets made to look like gambling chips and personalized and printed shot glasses. Vegas always features live entertainment so hiring a band, celebrity impersonators (Elvis anyone?!) or a dance troupe can add that special zing to your wedding event.

Dress in your glitziest best and make sure you inform your guests to do so as well. You can also arrange for accessories like glow in the dark bead necklaces, colourful feather boas and assorted bling for your guests to wear and enjoy for the night. This is definitely one of the more party-like options among the wedding themes!

    When you think about wedding places, fully entertainments city in the world then only one city came in to mind. That is Las Vegas. In the 1st image where is sign boar about “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada”
    I think this is mail logo of the city. One of main reason can be behind these idea because most of day in a year are dry and clean.
