He popped the question…yesterday! And now, he wants you to hop on a plane (in less than an hour) and tie the knot in Vegas. Why wait? If you are faced with an impromptu marriage, keep your cool. Read on to learn the five things you must pack for your spur of the moment, oh-so-romantic Vegas chapel wedding.
1. A Little Black Dress
Ladies, let’s be real. You don’t have time to run out and pick up a flowing, white princess silhouette gown. In fact, you probably aren’t the type of gal that would go for that anyway. All you need to look fabulous when sauntering down the aisle is your favorite little black dress. It is always chic, in style, and is easy to pack and slip on. Plus, you don’t have to worry about changing before enjoying your post-wedding celebration out on the town since a little black dress is appropriate for any and all occasions. You’ll be ready to dine at a fabulous restaurant or even go out dancing at a high end club!
2. A Camera
Whether you utilize the camera on your cell phone or pack your professional quality equipment, a camera is essential to capturing your special celebration. While some venues offer a photographer, others do not; so you can have some chapel workers snap some shots of the key moments of your ceremony and then have your camera on you for the rest of your evening, asking others to also snap some pics. Complete strangers will be more than happy to help you capture your first night out on the town as a married couple.
3. Red Lipstick
Don’t waste time planning your make-up regimen for the chapel. You can’t go wrong with brining a classic tube of red lipstick. It instantly dresses you up and photographs beautifully, not to mention looks stunning in the evening light. Since you are bringing a small carry-on bag, you have to also be choosy with the amount of liquids you bring in your bag on the plane, so it’s best to keep things simple and sweet.
Hello, you are getting married in Vegas on a whim! Nothing is more fun, exciting, or sexy than that. Be sure to pack something slinky and silky to kick off your honeymoon right. Plus, it takes up little space in your carry-on bag and he’ll certainly be glad you took the time to think and grab this evening attire.
5. Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue
While a Vegas wedding is anything but traditional, you can still work a popular wedding tradition into your special day. Pack something old, new, borrowed, and blue. Your something new can be a new tube of lipstick or a fresh coating of nail polish that you get applied while waiting for the plane. Something old can be the dress you pack. Something borrowed can be a piece of jewelry you have borrowed from a friend or family member, and most popularly your something blue can be a pair of panties!
