December 27, 2022

If you’re interested in planning a Valley of Fire wedding, then you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll offer all the information and details you need to plan a Valley of Fire wedding, including the planning process, all the necessary permits, and, of course, our exclusive Valley of Fire wedding packages. Let’s start with why it’s important that we have a partnership with the Valley of Fire State Park.

Our Valley of Fire Wedding and Elopement Partnership

Every Valley of Fire wedding requires a wedding permit that can only be obtained via an approved wedding vendor. Luckily, we have a partnership with the Valley of Fire State Park, and as one of the most experienced micro wedding and elopement wedding planning companies in Vegas, we can help you create the Valley of Fire wedding you’ve been dreaming of.

How to Plan Your Valley Of Fire Wedding With Us

We’ve had the pleasure of planning and executing several Valley of Fire weddings over the years and consider this one of the best off-the-strip locations for an intimate wedding or elopement. There are several unique spaces located throughout the Valley of Fire State Park, including the Seven Sisters and The Cabins. To help you, we’ve outlined the seven steps it takes to successfully plan a wedding at this location.

#1 – Getting Started

To get the ball rolling, we always invite couples considering a Valley of Fire wedding to first get in touch with us and share the basic details and vision for their wedding day. Doing so helps us have a clearer understanding of what it is you’re looking for.

Afterward, we can talk to you about how we can help you plan your wedding at the Valley of Fire State Park. Communication is key for us, so we’ll continue to talk to you throughout the entire process, including answering any questions you may have about our Valley of Fire wedding day packages.

#2 – Booking the Date

Once you’ve settled on the idea of hosting your wedding at the Valley of Fire State Park and choose the best package to suit your needs, let us know, and we’ll send over our contract to sign.

Once you’ve signed on the dotted line, your wedding date is booked, and we can jump into the planning process.

#3 – Figuring Out Wedding Preparations

At this stage, the formalities are over, and we can jump straight into the fun wedding prep stage. During this time, you won’t have to make decisions alone. We’ll be there to help you find your dress, book your transport, and ensure you have your accommodation booked.

#4 – Securing Wedding Vendors

One of the main reasons why couples choose to work with experienced wedding planners like us is because of our extensive network of wedding vendors.

We can negotiate the best prices, help with the paperwork, and ensure you book the best vendors that can be relied on.

#5 – Getting Valley of Fire Wedding Permits

As we mentioned before, you will need a wedding permit to tie the knot at the Valley of Fire State Park. Luckily, we know just how to get that done, so you won’t have to worry about a thing.

#6 – The Wedding Day Timeline

One of the most crucial aspects of any wedding day, and especially for out-of-town weddings, is the wedding day timeline. That’s when you’ll really appreciate having a professional wedding planning company in your corner.
