We tied the knot yesterday evening! It was everything we hoped for. I'm so excited to be Mrs. Johnson now!
We had a small destination wedding in Las Vegas with 30 guests. To anyone who thinks they might prefer a small wedding, I say go for it! It was so special to have this amazing experience with an intimate group of our nearest and dearest.
We booked an awesome suite with a wraparound terrace at the Cosmopolitan and had our ceremony on the terrace overlooking the Bellagio fountains. It was gorgeous and our guests all really enjoyed the experience and the amazing views. We took everyone to dinner in a restaurant in the hotel then back to our suite for an after party. DH's sister officiated and she did an amazing ceremony that made me teary eyed.
My best advice would be to not let yourself get stressed. It goes by so quick and you should enjoy every moment! Also, consider a consumption bar if a bar package is too pricey. We did consumption and came in way under budget on alcohol.
