Congratulations! You’ve just gotten engaged, and while you’re still basking in that warm and fuzzy fiancé glow (still sounds funny, doesn’t it?), you’re starting to look for out-of-the-ordinary venues that will take your wedding to a whole new level. Well, you’re in luck because we’re going to give you a little insight into what your wedding day would look like if you got married in one of the most unique wedding venues in the world: The High Roller in Las Vegas. At 550 feet in the sky, it’s the tallest observation wheel in the world (step aside, London Eye). So you’ll get a stunning backdrop of the Strip and surrounding mountainside instead of a couple of white pillars and urns that could just as easily be used for a funeral. If those stunning vistas aren’t reason enough for you to get married in one of the coolest Las Vegas attractions, here are a few more reasons why weddings on the High Roller are ones for the history books. As if getting married in Vegas isn’t cool enough.
Make it rain with the extra dough you’re saving
In 2016, the average cost of a wedding went up to $35,000. Wow, we don’t know about you, but that sounds like a painful pill to swallow. With the average debt level rising, we already have enough bills to worry about. And that’s why it’s ideal to get married on the High Roller in Las Vegas. They have packages ranging from $395 to $6,250. That cuts the price tag down significantly and you won’t have to go into debt or sell your organs on the black market to afford it. These packages, after you fill out the short form, include your hotel room, the private cabin rental, open bar, food, photography and everything else to make getting hitched in Las Vegas a success. You want it, they’ve got it. And to add more icing to that three-tiered red velvet cake, someone will be there to help you plan the whole shebang. These wedding packages are ideal for those who want to save money and splurge on the honeymoon. Start your marriage on an adventurous note and go somewhere across the pond. Or stay in Vegas and enjoy all this city has to offer. No matter what you choose, you’ll thank us later.
It’s modern (aka: really super shiny)
Las Vegas reinvents itself more than Cher, Madonna and Diddy (is that still his name?) combined. That’s why we love it (and would marry it, if that sort of thing were legal). And in the land of the everchanging, the High Roller is one of the latest and greatest attractions in Las Vegas. Making its first rotation in the spring of 2014, the High Roller is just as in the moment today as Justin Bieber or Drake. We dare you and your soon-to-be spouse to stand anywhere near the giant wheel and NOT take a pic for the ‘gram or snag a selfie with filters for Snapchat. And we double-dog dare you to not do it again while soakin’ up that sweet nectar of a Las Vegas Strip view inside one of the 28 air-conditioned cabins. And you already know how important air-conditioning is to weddings in Vegas. Be glad this isn’t the 1800s, or worse, the 1980s. *Googles to see when air-conditioning was invented.* Speaking of electricity, wait until you see the High Roller at night. It’s 2,000 LED lights mean that not only does this thing shine brighter than a love fern during the holidays, but it does so while being uber energy-efficient. And “going green” is totally in right now. But, back to the “shiny.” Its light system can be configured to display a single color, multiple colors, moving colors or even special custom arrangements for holidays or special events. So let’s recap, yeah? It’s big. It offers a totes gorg view. AND it’s energy-efficient. Yep. Do you have your tux and dress picked out yet? Because you might want to wear something as streamlined and contemporary as this venue.
Sorry high school crush, you’re not invited
Yeah, you could be like Romy and Michele and invite all those high school “friends” you couldn’t stand (just to make them jealous), or that long-lost relative you haven’t spoken to since you were five. But that’s just a waste of space and money. #SorryNotSorry. This is YOUR wedding day! It’s the one day you’ll remember forever. Lucky for you, the High Roller wedding packages make it easy for you to be selective about who’s gettin’ the golden ticket. The invite list is capped at 24 people, so go ahead and be choosy with who gets an invite. Trust us, you won’t feel guilty for not inviting your second-grade teacher, because the most important people will be there. You’ll have a blast with the people you love, and it will make your wedding day much more special. Plus, think about all the money you’re saving. At a normal wedding venue, you’d probably spend at least $50 a plate on people you might not even get a chance to talk to. Less is more, and that’s what’s going to matter after the celebration is said and done.
Getting married in the world’s largest observation wheel is pretty unique
Getting married in the High Roller gives you an awesome story to tell! And that’s pretty freakin’ cool! “Oh, please tell me more about your wedding at a church,” said no one ever. Remember earlier when we double-dog dared you to not step inside one of the cabins and not snap an IG pic or selfie? That bodes double when you’re marrying the love of your life. But let’s set ego aside for one moment and think about your guests. If you’re going to have your closest friends and family drop a grip of cash to travel to your wedding, the least you can do is not give them a reason to fall asleep while the vows are being read. Think of the ridiculously awesome memories you’re giving your lucky duck guests. Unless it’s your wedding, ceremonies tend to be very forgettable. Ain’t nothin’ forgettable about being 550 feet in the air, staring at two lovebirds with the glitz and glamor of the Las Vegas Strip shimmering in the background. If we had to direct a rom-com, that would be our fancy-schmancy grand finale.
That view, tho
The view alone should make you press the buy button, no questions asked. You know how we said it’s the tallest observation wheel in the world? Yeah, you won’t forget that fact after you look out the windows of these pods. Your jaw will hit the floor like Jim Carey in “The Mask.” When you get to the tippy top, you’ll get two views, one of the Strip and one of the Vegas valley and its breathtaking mountains on the other side.
So, do you feel the love, or do you feel the love? And if you need any more information on the High Roller Observation Wheel at the LINQ Promenade or The LINQ Hotel, you already know that Vegas.com has you covered.
