Hotel Inclusive Packages
Wedding Planner Tip: Booking a wedding package that includes hotel stay for the couple will save you time and money. Planners can always help with hotel reservations for your wedding guests.
Traveling to Las Vegas
Las Vegas was briefly closed during the beginning of the pandemic, but has since re-opened. Even though there are Government mandates, it isn’t stopping tourists from coming to Las Vegas now that shows, sporting events, festivals, conventions and restaurants are open for business (with face mask restrictions, which are subject to change).
Travel Tip: Before you pick your travel and wedding date, think about how you will get to Las Vegas. If you are planning to fly, you should check the current travel restrictions for your state or country. If your current location has travel bans to Las Vegas, you may want to pick a date further out to make sure the ban has time to expire.
Las Vegas Hotel Deals
Resorts on the Las Vegas Strip are predicted to have incredible hotel rates for Summer and Fall 2020, and slower seasons in Fall and Winter 2021. Since all the Las Vegas Strip Resorts and Downtown Las Vegas hotels were forced to close their doors during the Coronavirus shut down, many hotels are discounting their rates to get people back to the “Entertainment Capital of the World”. These rates won’t last long since prices are based on how many rooms are available.
Insider Tip: Book your rooms now for the future and double-check and make sure you understand postponement and cancellation policies for the website that you are making your reservation on. Depending on whether you are booking directly or through a third-party website, you may NOT get charged for your stay until closer to your arrival date.
Las Vegas Wedding Planning Tips
Many couples travel to Las Vegas every year and plan their weddings from afar. Wedding Planners in Vegas are used to planning weddings over email and phone, and sometimes don’t meet the couple in person until the day before the wedding. Many couples will download wedding checklists from Pinterest or hire a trusted local wedding planner to assist them.
Chapel of the Flowers includes wedding planners with every package to make planning a piece of cake. The experts at the Chapel have shared an easy 3 step checklist to do before arriving in Las Vegas for your special day.
Read your contract! Many people just sign away because they love a vendor or location, but the contract is there to protect your rights as well as the wedding vendor. It is very important to understand the services you are purchasing, additional fees not included, when your final payments are due, and cancellation/rescheduling policy.
How to Get a Marriage License in Las Vegas

As your wedding day approaches, you should follow-up with your vendors 45 days before your wedding date. In the wedding industry, a majority of vendors require final payment 30 days before. Following up a couple of weeks before will give you time to remove and add services.
Wedding Planning Tip: If you are thinking of postponing your wedding, you should contact vendors as soon as you can. Lots of wedding vendors will not allow refunds within 30 days, since they have to pay staff or their affiliates in advance for your scheduled wedding.
