7. You Can Wear Whatever You Want

If you’re not feeling the traditional rented tux vibe or a big poufy white dress, then a Vegas wedding is perfect for you. Short with sequins or maybe even a little velvet — anything goes when you’re getting married in the city of lights. If you’ve always dreamed of being draped in gold silk, a Vegas wedding is the (only) place to do it.

6. It’s Actually Fun

A Vegas wedding doesn’t have any of the boring waiting around in a hotel by the highway, or extended chats with cousins you never knew you had that you’d expect from a typical wedding. Instead, your guests can spend their free time gambling, seeing shows, attending Sunday afternoon rooftop pool parties and actually having fun. Guests spend a lot of time, effort and money on weddings too, and it’s worth it to make sure they have a good time. With a wedding in Vegas, your guests will thank you for inviting them – and actually mean it!

5. It’s Cheap(er)!

Although having a good time in Vegas may cost you a pretty penny, it sure as heck doesn’t cost you as much as a traditional wedding. A typical wedding can cost on average around $50,000 — and that’s just the middle ground. If you (or even better, your parents) have a little bit of cash put aside for your big day, bring it on down to Vegas town, where you’ll definitely get much more bang for your buck. If you’re lucky, you might even come back with a little more than you started with.
