Almost every facility in Las Vegas comes at a hefty price for most couples. Having a $2000 budget is a very low one to have for a Vegas event and if you want to incorporate food and alcohol you will need to increase your budget if you are considering a venue for your Las Vegas wedding on the strip.  If you plan to have a large guest count you will need a larger budget than $2000 and still have a wedding in the heart of the city. 

However, you certainly can have a budget this size with a Las Vegas elopement. Choosing any of these options presented in this article will keep your ceremony costs down and allow you to implement more embellishments for your reception.  However, we at Custom Las Vegas Weddings help out customers plan their Vegas wedding within their price range.

Keeping Within Your Budget

From minister fees, extra photo payments, DJ payments and Las Vegas officiant fees to boutonniere and a bouquet for the bride, hidden fees are commonplace. To stay safe from paying for what you hadn’t budgeted for, ask for a breakdown of everything that you will be charged for. Additionally, research the company well and let them know of your concerns.

It is possible to get robbed blind in the midst of the confusion about hosting a memorable wedding in Las Vegas. However, when you use a trusted vendor, you will not experience any glitches.

A reputable vendor often has a solid reputation as a professional with excellent reviews, a website and doesn’t charge lower or exorbitant rates. Use the web and ask for reviews from those who have been there before.
