I can hardly contain my excitement as I type this! This is the final post of wedding updates. The days have seemed to pass so slow, but now that we are in the final stretch its like it was here in no time. As you’re reading this, my fiance and I are boarding the plane to….. LAS VEGAS! Yes, we are going to get married in Las Vegas, Nevada. Like I’ve been trying to get across for a while, we are everything BUT traditional. Backstory? A few years ago when we were kind of discussing the topic of marriage, we both decided that we thought it would be the coolest thing to get married in Vegas. And I’m not talking your typical courthouse marriage ceremony, or fancy hotel wedding ceremony. I’m talking drive thru, Elvis as the minister, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, type of “ceremony”.
We will arrive in Vegas around 11 am. From the airport, we will be checking into our room at Encore at the Wynn Las Vegas. We picked this room and hotel in particular for its luxurious amenities and room style which there will be a review of on my YouTube channel here. We took our time and combed through some of the most popular and highest rated rooms before we came to our decision. While there we will relax and prepare to change into our wedding attire and later head out to pick up our marriage licence. The cool thing about Vegas is that their marriage bureau stays open till 12 am! So those movies where people just up and get married…. are totally TRUE!
At about 5 pm we will be wed at the Sweetheart Wedding Chapel & Bridal Boutique. We loved their intimate setting, and it made better sense since it was going to just be the two of us. We opted for their sign and go package which is literally what it sounds like. We will be signing our licence with a minister, have our wedding photo session, and then off to our first dinner as a married couple! My fiance made the reservations himself and I BEGGED to not be involved because I’d like a surprise for the restaurant choice.
The night before our wedding day, we will have our own small ceremony to read our handwritten vows to one another and to just bask in the fact that we will be getting married in a few hours.
To keep our family and friends updated on our special day we created our own wedding website on Honeyfund. Our website gives our fam and friends the opportunity to not only be updated by us but gives them options to send gifts. We have been living together for 3 years and have accumulated all of our necessities so we were asking for monetary gift options or gift cards. If you’d like to contribute or even sign our wedding guestbook, feel free to visit our personalized sight HERE!
We will be vlogging our entire trip and of course giving BTS of traveling and other activities we have planned, so please be sure to follow me on social media and of course subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE.
Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement. I cant wait for this new chapter in our lives, and I can’t wait to share that chapter with you guys as well!
