The Pros and Cons to Elope in Las Vegas – Infographic 101

Do you want to elope in Las Vegas?

You might be thinking you want to elope in Las Vegas, just so you don’t have to deal with the stress of wedding planning. However, you don’t just want to elope to Las Vegas without thinking through the pros and cons of everything first.

Elope in Las Vegas

Many couples are faced with the decision to either have a big wedding or decide on a smaller wedding and eloping in Vegas provides many great possibilities. The info-graphic next to this article, created by the Wedding Band Shop, outlines the pros and cons you need to consider when deciding if you want to elope or not. Eloping is not a decision I advise you to rush into. Think about all the pros and cons when making the decision. This article will take you through the pros and cons to help you decide.

What is your motivation to decide on a Las Vegas elopement?

vegas elopement

What do you envision for your wedding? Do you dream of walking down the wedding aisle with all eyes on you? If so, you will want to either reconsider your decision or put aside those emotions.

planning a vegas elopement
How well does your family work together and with you on decisions? If your family doesn’t work well together or if they often clash with your ideas and decisions, eloping offers a great choice to avoid conflict in your wedding experience.

Do you really want to elope or are the frustrations of planning pushing you into the decision? If you have given up on the idea of a larger wedding just because of the frustrations you are experiencing, you may want to step back and re-think it. Frustrated feelings are most often natural emotional reactions to stress whether you elope or not. You will be out of your comfort zone when planning. You just need to decide how far out of your comfort zone you want to go.

What does your partner want? The final choice should belong to both you and your partner. What do they want? Ask them and then consider some of the pros and cons and in the end, doing so will help you arrive at a mutual decision.

Have you considered all the options? Eloping is not the only choice of course. It suits a lot of couples but you will need to decide what aspects of your wedding are most important to you in the end and act accordingly.

Is there a chance you will regret your decision? If you think there is a chance you will look back and regret your decision, you will want to really take the time and think it through with your partner.

eloping in Vegas

Pros –

  1. It’s less expensive – You avoid many of the costs associated with larger weddings when you decide to elope in Las Vegas. The cost of eloping in Vegas pales in comparison when you factor in the guest count, restaurant fees, and decoration costs, not to mention the formal cost of planning a formal affair. For example, many venues including ours offer all-inclusive elopement packages in Vegas.
  2. You call the shots – Elopement puts you and your partner back in control. You can rest assured you are making decisions you want to make without any unwanted family coercion and intrusions on your wishes.
  3. The world is yours – the sky is the limit when it comes to choices here in Las Vegas. There are places to get married in Vegas outside that provide great opportunities for an impromptu event. For those wanting something more private, there are great elopements venues in Las Vegas to consider that don’t break the bank but still offer the classy elopement option.
  4. Only VIP’s are present – Whether you decide it will just be the two of you or if you want to bring along a select number of family or friends, you are only having those you really want there at your wedding.
  5. Privacy – When you have a large formal wedding event you spend a majority of your time around other people, pleasing them and entertaining them. With an audience of 200 guests, it’s difficult to enjoy the private moments with your new partner.

Cons-

  1. Hurt Feelings – No matter where you decide to elope, one problem some people might face when thinking about eloping is the potential hurt feelings. Not all the family will agree with your decision to get married Las Vegas and the reality is you may have to deal with some fallout. Hopefully, most of your friends and family will be supportive and in the majority of cases, people love the weather and entertainment, not to mention the gambling opportunism most people love about Las Vegas.
  2. Fewer Gifts – If you are in need of receiving necessary gifts for the household in your newlywed life or if you want to receive personal remembrance gifts that mean a lot of you, the variety and amount will not be as plentiful if you elope.
  3. Less Extravagance – Smaller weddings are often less glamorous affairs than the larger formal events. That is not always the case but they certainly will not carry the formal flair and glamour a larger wedding affords.
  4. Dependence of vendors – You may choose a number of vendors or no vendors at your smaller Vegas elopement. This can be a pro or con depending on your opinion. Often times if you want a simple elopement in Vegas you will want a photographer to capture your affair for posterity. But you may choose to only have a ceremony and use your friends and family to take photos or video. If you choose a Vegas elopement for two, it will be essential to choose a photographer to be your witness. Choose a vendor that will allow you to use your own photos and not make you dependent on them entirely.
  5. Fewer guests to witness – With fewer guests attending, there will be fewer people to reminisce with you about your wedding day later. Of course, if you get a video or photo and have a get together later with a slideshow of the event that will help. That is what many couples who elope decide to do but it still is not the same as being there to share it with you.

It is important to choose a vendor who will be proficient to guide you in either scenario, whether you decide to have a small wedding elopement in Vegas or a large formal affair.
  • Do send marriage announcements: It is courteous and proper protocol to send out wedding announcements to those in your life. Doing so keeps you connected and enables everyone to know your final decision. You can also showcase the elopement photos in your announcement or use this opportunity to invite them to your event at home.
  • Do plan an event afterward at home: Most couples who elope in Vegas do plan to have a follow-up celebration inviting friends and family. This will afford the opportunity to showcase your photo or video slideshow and all people to still be a part of the event in a small way.
  • Don’t underplay it: If you do decide to elope in Las Vegas, treat it just like you would a bigger wedding. It is still your wedding so make sure to celebrate just as much and don’t underplay it just because you’re eloping.
  • Don’t forget to budget: Get ready to elope in Las Vegas by looking over our budget overview which outlines important questions you need to answer about your budget essentials. For ideas on how to get married in Las Vegas and how to budget for your Vegas wedding, read this article.
  • Don’t feel guilty: In the end, there is no need to justify your decision to anyone. What is most important is to do what is best for you both. It is your wedding day.

9 Mistakes to Avoid if You Plan to Elope in Vegas

Tying the knot usually takes far more work than just saying yes. Usually, it involves a lot of family and friends, faces familiar and less so, and a logistical behemoth which takes months to put together. If you plan to get married in Vegas and dread the thought of a large ceremony, spending a fortune, and moonlighting through your special day, you might want to elope in Vegas as an alternate consideration.

People routinely underestimate the beauty of simplicity and tie themselves with all kinds of social expectations. If you are familiar with what I’m saying, and understand the burlesque of an expensive ceremony all too intimately, this article might come handy rather soon.

And regardless of whether or not you’ve made up your mind about eloping in Vegas, some things you do have to be reminded of. We’ve seen far too many people going over the same mistakes time and again, so our goal is to pave the road even more and give you valuable advice to elope to Vegas. Here is where you should pay attention.

One: Not leaving enough time for hair and makeup


Having a Vegas wedding doesn’t mean you get to forget about stress altogether. Planning the logistics of location, the transportation, and the coordination, all follow a strict schedule. The groom might allow himself a laid back attitude before the wedding, but a bride should know better. No matter how simple you prefer your wedding, hair and makeup will always require extra time.

For suggested Vegas hair and makeup resources, visit this link to see our recommended vendors.

Do remember, therefore, to schedule your glam team at least two hours prior to the ceremony. That way you can relax, drink a mimosa, and actually enjoy the preparation while savoring the moment.

Two: Not capturing your memories in photos

There are so many options for the Vegas Wedding experience and some ideas include photos and others don’t. But when you look back on your wedding day you might regret it if you don’t capture your wedding day memories. Hiring a Vegas wedding photographer can go a long way, since you’ll have amazing pictures to show, and even a video of the ceremony to stream online.

Extremely popular, nowadays, is the Las Vegas wedding photo tour as an option to elope in Vegas and also capture memories for a lifetime. Why not add on more limousine time and include a scenic wedding photo tour? This can be planned for you affordably and include an unforgettable scenic trip to places you don’t normally get to see when you are typical tourist in Las Vegas. This can all be easily planned and coordinated for you by a professional Las Vegas wedding planner.

Three: Not considering the first look

Vegas wedding first look

The ceremony itself can offer a degree of distraction, which though easy to handle is enough to prevent a creative and memorable photo session. A first look, therefore, which is a reunion between the bride and groom hours before the ceremony, is ideal for capturing those memories.

You can arrange a creative Las Vegas wedding photo tour, and savor the moment without having to rush and panic.

Four: Not being prepared for the formalities

Las Vegas Marriage license bureau

A Vegas wedding by law requires you to obtain a wedding license. These are issued hustle free, even to non-residents of the US, but you’ll still have to provide a proof of identification. Birth certificates are not mandatory, and any type of official government photo ID will suffice. But there are also specific details you want to know about that are different in Las Vegas. Be prepared by looking ahead and making the necessary arrangements.

Click here to find out what you need to know about marriage licensing to help you prepare for getting married in Vegas.

Remember, also, that holidays are a peak season, when it’s harder to find, schedule and orchestrate a Vegas wedding with all of the details included –especially if you are doing it by yourself.

Five: Scheduling the celebration dinner too soon

wedding dinner toast
Though not exactly busy like New York or Los Angeles, it still takes longer than expected to travel from location to location in Vegas. Getting from the wedding location to the wedding reception can easily become super stressful if you forget to schedule the celebration at least one hour later.

During a wedding, almost anything can happen and often does. You might want to take more pictures, there might be a delay with the limo or the Las Vegas wedding venue you are using … or God knows what else. Leave enough room, therefore, to get to your celebration on time. It is well worth your time and money to reduce the stress of the occasion to hire a simple wedding coordinator to plan your wedding in Vegas ahead of time.

Six: Not using the complimentary hotel concierge services

Las Vegas bride at concierge
A helping hand can easily turn what seems to be Herculean effort into a solution only one phone call away. Note that prices can vary greatly depending on which hotel you are staying, but even small services can be a life saver. Think in the lines of planning assistance, dress and tux assistance, referral for cake and flowers…

Also, do not rely on yourself when setting up reminders. It’s harder to remain calm and coordinated with your special day getting closer. You can always ask the concierge service to help you with reminders and notify you about important deliveries. We at Custom Las Vegas Weddings also offer an all in one day of planning service to our couples. So whether you go with the concierge at your hotel or decide to avail yourselves of an all in one solution like ours, it is a service you might not want to overlook.

Seven: Not having enough limousine time

las vegas newlyweds in limousine

With traffic being such a frustration, you’ll need more time to travel from one point to another. More than likely since you don’t know the city well you would be smart to leave it to a professional planning company to make a day of timeline. A professional will be able to estimate more accurately how much time you will need for the limousine. This is invaluable service and will help avoid the pitfalls of being late to the wedding, restaurant reservations or shows. But that’s one side of the coin. The other is more about having fun, enjoying Vegas for what it is, and allowing the experience of the ceremony to sink in before continuing with your special evening.

Be careful not to over-drink though. It is easy to forget about limits altogether when you are driving through Vegas, at night, experiencing the hidden rhythm with all of those lights shining.

If you do happen to drink too much, however, here is a great Vegas resource for recovering from your Vegas hangover. This company is mobile and will come to your location in Vegas.

Eight: Elope in Vegas Jitters – avoid partying too much and lack of sleep, dehydration

vegas bride hangover sleepless night
A wedding day, complex or less so, would still require lots of energy. And the magic of Vegas and the partying or gambling it offers is more alluring than any other when it comes to keeping you awake. Nothing can zap your energy more than these top three things:

  • Drinking too much: Save the drinking for the night of or the night after the wedding.
  • Not getting enough sleep: Get the needed amount of sleep the night before the wedding and be clear the day of.
  • Not drinking enough water: Whenever you travel, you need to keep hydrated. Any travel and climate change will require more water intake.

If you want a memorable and enjoyable wedding day, take this advice – you must pay heed to these cautions. No matter what! There is always time for late night partying after the wedding.

Nine: Not having a planner help you coordinate your wedding day

If you are in Vegas for the first time, try to make the calculations up front, and see whether or not you’ll fare better with a Vegas wedding planner. They can handle the wedding day coordination down to detail, and even pass you discounts for coordinating vendors, saving you money in the long run.

Check out our Cost of eloping in Vegas budget calculator here to get an idea what you want to set for your budget.

Vendors have an easier time collaborating with wedding planners, arranging dozens of discounts for transportation, flowers, or a garden variety of small perks and time savers. This will take the burden off your shoulder and help you relax and save money in the long run.
