- Wedding: August 2015 - caesars palace las vegas
I am all about frugality, thats why I keep sharing my story of a Las Vegas Caesars Palace wedding. My husband and I live in San Luis Obispo CA, on the coast. A huge wedding destination on its own…. which makes it hard to afford… and makes it a destination wedding even though we live here! We chose las vegas because everyone can do what they want (golf, eat, gamble, dance) and stay where they want (all relatively close and accessable) and its close to the airport obviously for people who are traveling. The Caesars Palace wedding was about $1300 on a wednesday in the summer (later in the day so it was not too hot)… My dress was $200 on sale because I think it was a floor model, the tux was rented at The Flamingo and the flowers were about $50 for all bouquets (they were paper, from etsy). I am just speaking out because it was never my dream to have a “perfect wedding day” but I do understand those who have that dream…. I still think you dont need to go into debt to impress friends and relatives for a night… and thats why we did Ceremony Only at Caesars with a big fat BBQ later in San Luis Obispo CA.
