  • How To Find A Cheap Las Vegas Wedding Chapel

    So you’ve decided to get married in Las Vegas but you’re not sure how to find a cheap Las Vegas Wedding chapel? Thanks to the power of the internet, researching Las Vegas wedding chapels is a lot easier than it used to be.

    What sort of wedding ceremony do you want? You can have a drive thru wedding starting at approximately $80. Or you can have a simple (and cheap) wedding chapel ceremony. There are so many wedding chapels in Las Vegas you’re spoilt for choice!

    Why not go to a search engine and type in the phrase “Las Vegas wedding chapel” or “cheap Las Vegas wedding chapel” without the quotation marks. Have a good look at the top 30 results. Visit the websites of any wedding chapels and make a note of what they offer for the price. If they have a 1-800 number and you want to ask them a question, call them (so you save money on long distance phone calls).

    After completing this process, you should have a good idea of exactly what you can get for the amount of money you want to spend. If you’re not satisfied with your results, then try a different search engine. Don’t forget, a Nevada wedding license costs $55 and you have to factor that into the cost of the wedding ceremony.

    Another way you can find a cheap Las Vegas wedding chapel is to go to the online yellow pages and look up the listings for Las Vegas wedding chapels. However, in most cases there will only be a simple listing for the wedding chapels with an ordinary phone number.

    There are plenty of online Las Vegas discussion boards. Go to a search engine and type in “Las Vegas discussion board” and then post your question about trying to find a cheap Las Vegas wedding chapel.

    If you follow the suggestions above you should be able to find a cheap wedding chapel that you’re happy with. But your wedding day is a day to remember and sometimes it’s advisable to spend a little more on the wedding ceremony to ensure that you’re happy with it.

    Trying to save a few dollars too much could mean the difference between a happy wedding day and a not so happy day if the wedding chapel you choose solely on the basis of cost turns out to be a mistake.

  • Four Tips To Designing An Affordable Wedding Invitation Suite

    Spreading the word about the big day is one of the most exciting and personal things you get to do leading up to the big day. But it’s not just a simple “hey, we’re getting married” (although it can if you want it to be!), usually there are the Save the Date cards, official invitations, RSVP cards, and don’t forget the thank you cards for after the wedding (please don’t forget these!) Unfortunately, all of these paper goods can add up, cutting in to your wedding budget if you’re not careful.

    Not to worry, you can still have a beautiful invitation suite on a budget! Below we are sharing our four tips to ensure your invitations don’t break the bank!

    Mark your calendar and plan ahead!

    One of the things that can cause your stationery budget to go beyond what you originally penciled out is waiting too long to order. It is best to order your invitations 4-6 months in advance to ensure they arrive in time for you to look them over, address them to your recipients, and send them out. Waiting until the last minute can tack on unnecessary fees and may risk your items not arriving in time.

    Find a supplier to do it all…

    or at least almost all of it! One of the ways to keep your invitations affordable is by finding someplace or someone who can provide you a package that includes all of your necessary paper goods. Some places even have options for table numbers, seating charts, among other wedding signs, so the more you can get in once place, the better! Not only can you save money by bundling these items together, you can ensure that the style and aesthetic is consistent across all of your items. 

    Skip the fancy embellishments

    We know you were probably oohing and ahhing over the foil invitations with hand lettered envelopes on your wedding inspiration board, but these eye catching embellishments unfortunately can cost a pretty penny. 

    You can still have beautiful invites by foregoing some of these details. Consider going with a basic cardstock rather than a premium paper, and skipping details such as letterpress. Whether you are having someone design them or going through an online supplier, talk with them to price out which details you could consider adding that will add that special touch to your invites but still keep you in budget.

    Take your invites digital

    2020 is the year that reminded us that changes to details like a date or time are sometimes needed, or in the case of a pandemic—unavoidable. By taking your invitations digital on a wedding website, not only can you easily keep track of RSVPs but if an update or change is needed, you can easily make it and notify those you’ve invited without having to repurchase and resend a bunch of invites.

    Jot these tips down and if by following them, we’re sure you’ll feel confident getting your hands on some affordable (and beautiful) wedding invitations!
