Vow Renewal

Well, we booked our flights and hotel reservations last night for our vow renewal in Las Vegas next April.

I guess I really need to get on the ball and start planning it. I'm thinking about doing some really cheesy, Elvis inspired, Blue Hawaii thing.

Or maybe just a very simple, traditional ceremony.

We're not planning on doing a formal reception, but may just take everyone out to dinner and then hit the strip. We reserved a small suite at The Palazzo, so may have room to have everyone up for champagne and cake, depending on how many show up.

Decisions, decisions. Any suggestions from the JUDDD BUDDDs??

No suggestions from me, Dawn! Your plans for your renewal of vows sound so exciting. I've never been to Vegas tho my sister goes a lot.

Enjoy your special day!! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Love what you're planning Dawn and (asking ahead of time) please give us the privilege of sharing your special event with a picture when the time comes!!! I KNOW everyone would adore that!

I'm imagining....."This is the Bride that JUDDD Made!" How cool is that? (Our resident writer needs to write a story with this title!)

What fun! What a great plan!

It looks like a bit of online spelunking (search "wedding las vegas" and other phrases) will yield a rich vein of and-a-good-time-was-had-by-all choices.

Whatever you chose to do, I add my plea to Phyl's - we want pictures and stories!!!

Our first date was on Halloween 13 years ago. We almost did a Halloween wedding!

Thanks everyone. I think we're leaning towards super cheesy, Hawaiian, Elvis, etc. DH has started posting links to Elvis songs on FB.

We got married in Las Vegas and the chapel streamed live video, so people who couldn't make it could view it on-line. Maybe we'll go that route again and the BUDDDs can watch if they'd like.

Oooooh yes please!

My nephew did the Elvis experience when he married his partner of 20 years. Just them and their lovely daughters. Didn't even tell anyone until they had done the deed. Great way to celebrate his 40th too.

How fun! We went to Vegas last year (first time for both of us) and fell in love with it! We would love to get married in Vegas, but it looks so difficult to plan! If you have any tips for an easy wedding, let me know.

I'm all about cheese, so if you go that route, please PLEASE share with us!

Lisa, if you do it at one of the hotels there is someone to help you plan it all. At least that's how it was when we did it back in '95 I just told the coordinator what I wanted and she did it all.

Many of the chapels have packages. That's what we did the first time, and it was all included in one price. We had 2 limos pick us up at our hotel, the flowers, flower girl basket and petals, photography, officiant, etc. were all taken care of. All we had to do was show up. Easy peasy. If you just google Las Vegas wedding chapel packages or similar, you'll get tons of links.

ETA: You can do it all on-line from the comfort of your own home. I loved it.

From what I hear from friends who got married there, you can buy packages and the hotel will do everything. So, flowers, cake, etc. I don't think it was too expensive either. and have fun!

Fun Dawn! We were married by Elvis 10 years ago.

Some of our family went with us.
We flew back to V last Dec. to celebrate.
The business we used, put the ceremony on Internet for us.
Others got to view it without making the trip.
So happy for u.

April 27 (our ten year anniversary is April 26, but we wanted to do it on a Saturday so we don't have to take the kidlet out of school). Details are still in the works.

Open invitation to anyone who wants to meet up in Vegas. I can't guarantee room in the chapel, but we could coordinate our UDs and kill the profit at at least one buffet.

Chapel! I couldn't get that word.
We went on the cheap- cheap side with flowers. Other than what fake flowers were already in the chapel.
On the way to C. Hubby to b swiped a flower off a motels guest eating tray, that they leave when they are finished eating in their rooms.
We stayed at MGM hotel.
With a surprise arriving in v. We made arrangements to see one of my favorite singers...Elton John in concert that night or next night, forget.
So I told-tell people that Elton was n our wedding party. Smile. Amazing went on,
When leaving concert which included 100's of people... we some how ended up in the same elevator as his band members....just me and hubby! It was such a fun thing to happen.
Thanks for the fun memory's floating around this morning.
Thanks for the invite! Love it
