Planning Your Las Vegas Wedding

According to an Associated Press article in the Augusta Chronicle, 40% of all couples in the United States get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. That means nearly half of all engagements take place within 25% of the calendar year. However, there’s no season or time of year that is truly the right time for wedding. The right time is a time that is best suited to the needs of the future bride and groom.

Ironically, most event or wedding planners count on the fact that the month’s following the engagement will be the most stressful time in their pre-married lives. It goes without saying that this time is going to produce stress and worry. And that’s where Downtown Project Events is different. We want to shoulder some of that burden for you so the period prior to, during, and immediately after your wedding will be one of the most memorable experiences of your lives. We are your wedding venues specialists in Las Vegas; here to not only assist with your wedding planning needs, but also to ensure that you receive the best value for your investment. The following is helpful information that will make the process easier on you.

Choosing Your Date

While Las Vegas has long been recognized as a special yet unique destination for a wedding, the city is always exciting, rocking, and vibrant on a 24/7/365 basis. There are many concerts, conventions, festive events, and naturally millions of visitors year-round. Even though Las Vegas has been designed and developed to accommodate huge influxes of visitors, we suggest planning your wedding on a date that avoids any convention or major holiday. Air fares and hotel rooms always cost more during those times, while dining and entertainment venues get extremely busy and a little crazy.
