June 8, 2021

When planning a Las Vegas elopement, some venues are more difficult to secure during certain times of the day. Which means that you may have a little bit of time to kill in-between your ceremony and reception plans. But not to worry! This is actually a fun way to experience all that Las Vegas has to offer and allows your guests to enjoy more activities during their visit.

Enjoy a Bottomless Brunch

Cheers! Celebrate your elopement with some delicious mimosas and more! There’s nothing worse than having to wait a while for a delicious meal, so if you’re planning a morning ceremony, you should consider a brunch reception for you and your guests. Planning for a dinner reception instead? Then this is the perfect opportunity to plan a full day of celebrations with your partner or families — starting with a brunch!

Do a Photo Tour Around Las Vegas

After your wedding ceremony, hit the popular photo spots around town to capture some more memories together. Although standing in front of the Bellagio Fountains on the Las Vegas strip may be the one of the most photographed places in the city, there are so many undiscovered and less popular places off the strip that are equally as epic to photograph. A lot of couples feel that they are limited to only getting photos done where they actually have their ceremony, but if you do a photo tour after your wedding you have the chance to get more fun captures to add to your album. Here’s a list of a few Photo Tour Ideas in Las Vegas to check out.

Hit the Casino

What better way to pass the time than to check out the casino? Especially if this is your first trip to Las Vegas, every hotel and casino has something different to offer. Give the slot machines and black jack tables a go for a bit (and maybe make some fun money!) before the rest of your wedding day or reception plans.

Visit the Neon Museum

Founded in 1996, The Neon Museum collects, preserves and displays iconic Las Vegas signs from over the years! You can experience all the magic during the day or night — the Neon Boneyard is available to the public from 2pm to 10pm (reserve tickets in advance!).

Lounge by the Pool

Sometimes you and your guests just need a little relaxation time before the party starts! Most of the hotels in Las Vegas offer luxury pools and cabana options during different months of the year. Renting a cabana poolside is the perfect way to spend the day for any of our couples with morning ceremonies and evening receptions planned. Your guests will appreciate a quick break to be able to go back to their hotel room and regroup before getting ready for evening plans.

Explore the Hotels

Every single hotel along The Strip is incredible and offers something unique! From roller coasters and shopping malls to floral gardens and golf courses, you could spend days just strolling through any of these stunning spots. Spend the afternoon in Italy at The Venetian with a gondola ride around the entire hotel, or check out the floral installations at The Bellagio and The Wynn. Once the sun sets, be sure to catch the Bellagio fountains on the way to your dinner celebration.
