Planning a Las Vegas Wedding With A Budget

3 Things That Could Affect Your Wedding Budget
Your budget is one of the first things that you will sit down and discuss when planning your Las Vegas wedding. It can also cause the most stress during the planning process.
Below are 3 things that could affect your wedding budget and add to your wedding planning stress.
Where you wed. Your wedding location will play a leading role in the creation of your budget. Venues that are situated in popular areas will generally charge more. Smaller venues or elopement packages can be achieved on a smaller budget. Venues also have different packages and policies that you’ll need to consider. For example, some venues might require you to use their vendors, some of which might not fit in with your budget. A lot of venues have minimum catering requirements that may go beyond your guest list. It’s important to look at average costs of areas and venues before you make a final decision.
Having a Las Vegas wedding can be super costly or super affordable. If you are looking for more affordable options, consider an elopement package.
Time of the year. Wedding seasons make a big difference to costs. Planning to get married on a Saturday in the summer? Chances are you’re going to end up paying a lot more for your wedding. Look at your budget and how it fits in with the venue and location you have in mind and whether you can move your wedding to another season or day of the week to save on costs. Vendors might also be able to offer you discounts for off-peak days and seasons.
The number of guests. This is one area that can very easily get out of control. Your guests are going to take up a large portion of your budget so it pays to be sensible about who you’re inviting. Most venues will charge you for everything from drinks and food to the chair your guest will be sitting on so think twice about inviting your aunt who you haven’t seen in 2 years. Agree on how many guests you want to invite and stick to it.
If you want to stick to a wedding budget carefully plan your finances before you even begin planning your wedding. Working with a wedding planner can help you find better prices and keep you on track financially. Don’t forget to include the budget for the transportation services. Look for a service, like Dream Limousines, that offers a wide variety of vehicles so that your day is picture-perfect.
In addition, when reaching out to vendors, some have weekday or group specials. Brianna Michelle Beauty offers group specials for parties of 6 or more. You can inquire here.<< BACK TO BLOG
I have to say with working with so many people coming from all over the place to get married Brianna and her team have this down to a science. Victoria came in and was absolutely AMAZING! I could not have dreamed of a more wonderful person to help make my day exactly as I had hoped for. My Mother In Law also looked amazing as for someone who is older, fairer skin and doesn’t wear a lot of makeup Victoria was great at communicating with her and making sure she looked great!- 7/31/18
Wonderful, wonderful job! I am in the beauty business, in Chicago, & 7 of us girls traveled to Vegas for a birthday. I am so happy I found such a wonderful business!!!! Not only was Victoria fun and professional, she did beyond amazing job taking her time with each of us, she worked her butt off and worked late on a Saturday.- 12/13/2016
This was the single most relaxing moment I had prior to my marriage! If there is something that can happen in your day that makes you feel more relaxed, this is priceless! I did not have to look in the mirror to see the result, I only had to look in my husband’s eyes to know what a wonderful job they did! -6/13/2013
Lisa and Kristi were amazing!!! I had myself and a party of 8 girls including moms, and we all looked incredible! It was hard finding a team that accommodated such a large party, and these girls rocked it! They both asked alot of questions which I appreciated and I felt like a princess on my special day! -8/7/2017
