But don’t worry, we can help you figure out the perfect plan for tying the knot on this day of love with our helpful tips below.

Book the Best Las Vegas Wedding Venue for February 14th

If you’re planning a Valentine’s Day ceremony, choosing the right wedding venue in Las Vegas can have a big impact on how magical and memorable your wedding day will be. Why? Because not just any venue will do when getting married on this holiday, you really need to make sure the ceremony space is as romantic as it can be, as well as the reception hall.

Always & Forever’s venue spaces are exceptionally romantic and beautiful. For instance, our ceremony locations boast altars and wedding gazebos that rest on the edge of a sparkling blue lake where swans often make an appearance. You will also see a charming stone bridge over the water in the background, as well as swaying willow trees and lush green gardens. And as you can imagine, all this is breathtaking for those having a sunset wedding where stunning colors reflect off the lake, and can be captured in your wedding photography. Always & Forever even has a waterfall feature that can set the stage for true romance when you become husband and wife on your Valentine’s Day wedding.

This all makes for a fabulous place to get married in the wedding capital of the world, and you can take a personal tour of these beautiful ceremony spaces by heading over to our Las Vegas wedding venue image galleries:

Ceremony & Reception Should Follow a Valentine’s Day Color Scheme

When planning your Las Vegas holiday ceremony and reception, your choice of wedding colors becomes an important aspect that can set the mood of the celebration. Classic Valentine’s Day colors such as red, pink, and white are traditionally associated with love and romance and can create a warm, inviting ambiance. However, don’t feel bound to these options – experimenting with a wide variety of color palettes can offer a unique touch to your affair.

For instance, consider adding softer tones like blush or rose gold for a subtle, romantic look, or bold colors like burgundy and black for a dramatic, sophisticated atmosphere. If you’re leaning towards a vibrant red, consider pairing it with a neutral shade like ivory or even a muted gold for a balanced, elegant look. Additionally, incorporate your chosen colors not only in your decor, but also your invitations, wedding cake, and bridal party attire so that the entire event, from the ceremony to the wedding reception, flows well when it comes to the color scheme. While on the topic, in addition to holiday colors, you may be interested in our latest post on tips for choosing wedding colors by season.

Consider Wedding Decor that Fits in With this Holiday of Love

A Valentine’s Day wedding certainly calls for extra romantic decor, and we have a few suggestions. Reception tables could be adorned with certain wedding flowers such as centerpieces that contain roses and peonies, perhaps mixed with delicate baby’s breath. Crystal chandeliers or fairy lights could add a magical glow to the venue, while personalized love quotes or poems, beautifully written and framed, could be used as unique table numbers.

For the ceremony backdrop, consider a heart-shaped arch filled with florals and greenery. Or, saying your vows under an ivy-entwined ceremony gazebo on the lake’s edge. For indoor weddings, candles could be strategically placed to give off a soft, intimate lighting. Of course, the wedding cake should be an elegant reflection of the day as well. Try flavors like raspberry and white chocolate with fresh fruit toppings surrounded by a bed of delicate flower petals.

In addition to all this, your guests are there to celebrate your wedding, so why not give them a special token to remember this important day? You can give out heart-shaped wine stoppers, personalized chocolates, or a heart-shaped mini frame with one of your engagement photos in it. Just make sure that the wedding favors are practical and tasteful.

Add Sparkle to Your Ceremony with a New Year’s Eve Wedding

Choosing to get married on New Year’s Eve can make your special day even more memorable. Why is this the case? Because this date brings with it a sense of excitement and hope as people worldwide look forward to new beginnings. Also, by tying the knot on this holiday, your anniversary will always coincide with a time of celebration, making this day even more fabulous. It also allows for creative and festive wedding themes, incorporating countdowns, sparkling decor, and more. Additionally, as most people have time off, your guests may find it easier to attend.

If you decide to get married in Las Vegas on this holiday, you will want to book your wedding venue as early as possible since many places tend to fill up quickly for a New Year’s Eve time slot. So, be sure to view our wedding packages to get a head start.

Add Shimmering Metallics to Your Las Vegas Wedding Colors

As the clock ticks down to the New Year, imagine a wedding that sparkles with a color scheme that boasts accents of shimmering metallics. Or, imagine breathtaking colors of gold, silver, and copper, reflecting the festive spirit of New Year’s Eve. When these colors are added to your color scheme, they can add a touch of warmth and luxury. These colors can be beautifully added to your centerpieces, table linens, as well as your wedding dress. Or, having your bridal party glowing in sequined dresses of gold, and silver, or copper, and the groomsmen sporting ties or pocket squares in these colors, would be a nice touch. Some couples incorporate confetti in honor of this holiday. For example, a shower of metallic glitz is used as the couple walks down the aisle or as they step on the dance floor for their first dance.

Kick the New Year Off with Holiday Decor for Your Ceremony & Reception

When it comes to decorating for your New Year’s Eve wedding, the sky is truly the limit. From glittery table settings and metallic balloons to sparkling chandeliers, the more sparkle and shine in your decor, the better. And of course, no New Year’s Eve wedding would be complete without an epic countdown. But if your wedding ends before the stroke of midnight, then try incorporating a countdown into your wedding by having a special timer or clock that counts down to the moment you say your vows. You can also count down to your first dance or even the cutting of the cake – it can make your wedding fun and help you perfectly tie a New Year’s Eve tradition into your Las Vegas wedding.

Give Your Guests Holiday Wedding Favors to Top the Celebration Off

New Year’s Eve wedding favors can be a combination of fun and festive items that help your guests ring in the new year. Miniature bottles of champagne adorned with personalized labels serve as an elegant reminder of your special day. Custom-made New Year’s Eve party hats and noise makers can add a bit of fun to the occasion. Or perhaps consider giving out beautiful calendars with your wedding date highlighted, or maybe inscribed glass ornaments that your guests can use for their own New Year celebrations. No matter what favor you choose, your guests will be happy to receive items that remind them of your Las Vegas New Year’s Eve wedding.

Planning a wedding is always exciting, but putting together a Christmas wedding is nothing short of magical. Picture an aisle lined with twinkling lights and wedding flowers that represent the season, or maybe the scent of fresh pine from the Christmas tree-like greenery set within your wedding bouquet. Or, imagine decor in traditional Christmas colors, making a festive statement.

All these elements can create an unforgettable ambiance, making a Las Vegas holiday wedding around the Christmas season a memorable occasion. As with any holiday wedding, it may take some research to get it just right, and that’s why Always & Forever is happy to present a few tips on planning a wedding such as this as you get married in Las Vegas.

When having a Christmas ceremony and reception, there are several key factors to consider:

  • Beautiful Wedding Venue: Ensure the venue has the look you’re after, such as gorgeous scenery that will make your Las Vegas holiday wedding all that you have imagined. Always & Forever’s lakefront wedding property, gardens, and gazebos, can certainly make your Christmas ceremony beautiful, magical and romantic.
  • Festive Holiday Colors & Decor: Christmas provides a rich theme full of festive reds and greens, twinkling lights, and glittering ornaments. Use these elements to create a Christmas feel and a warm and inviting atmosphere. If you’re getting married at Always & Forever, you can incorporate Christmas ornaments into the ceremony gazebo by hanging them from the ivy that’s entwined with the gazebo.
  • Food & Drinks: Ask your preferred vendor if they have food and drinks that match up to a traditional Christmas dinner, or if they do anything special around the holiday season. Additionally, request that your wedding cake be decorated in Christmas colors such as red, white, and silver, with hints of green.
  • Holiday Music: Incorporating Christmas carols into your music playlist can add a festive touch. Work with your DJ to ensure that he or she has holiday music in their playlist.
  • Christmas Gift Exchange: It’s customary to exchange gifts during Christmas, so it may be fun to arrange a Secret Santa among your guests. Although not traditional, it can make for a special experience for your guests during the wedding reception.

Below you will find a few popular inquiries that we have received from our brides and grooms:

Is it a good idea to have a 4th of July wedding?

A 4th of July wedding that takes place in Las Vegas can capture the spirit of celebration and summer fun. It provides a unique opportunity to incorporate patriotic elements into your special day, with red, white, and blue serving as a vibrant color scheme for decorations and wedding attire. And if you’re having an evening wedding in Las Vegas, you and your guests may enjoy the added bonus of public firework displays that might be seen in the distance, bringing a fabulous conclusion to your wedding day. Additionally, the long weekend associated with this holiday often makes travel easier for out-of-town guests, increasing the likelihood they can attend.

Do couples ever get married on Thanksgiving Day in Las Vegas?

While the demand to get married on Thanksgiving may be less than on other holidays, such as Valentine’s Day, some couples do choose to tie the knot in Las Vegas on Thanksgiving. Getting married on this holiday could be driven by a variety of reasons – the holiday allows family members to gather and celebrate together, it could hold a special significance for the couple, or they might simply love the festive atmosphere that Thanksgiving brings. However, planning a wedding on a major holiday such as this does require thoughtful consideration to accommodate the potential schedule conflicts of guests.

Also, Thanksgiving-themed weddings can present opportunities for creativity in terms of decor. From rustic centerpieces featuring seasonal produce to warm-colored florals and autumn accents, there’s a lot of potential to make the day beautiful. Additionally, couples can incorporate traditional Thanksgiving dishes into their menu, if their venue offers it. The bottom line is that it doesn’t really matter too much if other couples get married on this particular holiday; what matters is what you, as a couple, prefer to do.
