Step One: Get Inspired by all things Vintage Vegas
If you want to get married in Vegas by Elvis at the Neon Museum (or really anywhere), then you are probably someone who LOVES the vintage Vegas vibes and some good oldies! The Neon Museum is SUCH a great place to get married, but you might also want to get some pictures downtown, so you need to really get INSPIRED for what you can do before and after your ceremony! One of my favorite ways to get inspo is going on Pinterest, and looking through different searches like "Las Vegas elopement" or "downtown Vegas wedding" to really get some more ideas on colors, outfits, activities, and ways to really make your wedding about you! If you are looking for a great place to start, our Pinterest has TONS of curated inspiration for you to begin the elopement or wedding planning process!
Step Two: Book your wedding or photo session at the Neon Museum
Once you have some inspiration, the next step is to secure the location. Traditionally, the Neon Museum books up fast, but right now they are super booked out with reschedules due to covid-19 as well as new brides and grooms planning their day. Fall is the best time in Vegas for a wedding due to the BEAUTIFUL weather, but anytime you and your partner decide will be a special day no matter what. We have shot some mid-summer over hundred degree days, and they turned out to be some our most favorite weddings and elopements! As for how to actually book the Neon Museum as your venue, they have a few different options. The best way to find out all your options and different prices is to fill out their contact form directly on their website.
Option One: Book A Photo Session
They offer photo sessions, which can range from around $300-$500 typically, and gives you about 45 minutes in the gallery all to yourself and the photographer of your choice! This is a great option for those couples looking for a cheaper option and really want to visit the museum for the pictures! That way you can do something like a quick elopement in the desert of a chapel downtown, and then still get your pictures taken at the neon museum! Unlike some of the chapels downtown that don't let you choose your own photographer, or charge excessive prices to bring the photographer you want, the Neon Museum is all about letting you provide the photographer you want!
Here is some inspiration from Devon and Erik's photo session at the North Gallery! They booked a photo session right at sunset, and it was EPIC!! We headed there after their tunnel of love ceremony at the Little White Chapel downtown, so they got the best of both worlds!
Option Two: Book A Full Wedding Ceremony
The other option is to have your actual ceremony at the Neon Museum! The prices for this range from about $1000-$10,000 depending on the day of the week, the gallery you choose (North or Main gallery), day or night time, and how many guests! So you can go with a quick weekday ceremony with no seating for a little under $1000, or have a full blown ceremony plus reception for around $10,000. My favorite part of the Neon Museum is that they really cater to their couples by offering tiny ceremonies similar to going to a chapel but also offer the option for full blown weddings for those who want a more traditional wedding for hundreds of guests.
You do have to provide your own officiant, florist, photographer, videographer, etc. And depending on the package you choose, you will have to use one of their caterers, but who doesn't want an open bar at their ceremony anyways?!
If you need some more convincing on why you should have your wedding at the Neon Museum, check out Jolee & Ryan's wedding at the Neon Museum from just a few months ago! They went with the ceremony option at the North Gallery, which is the smaller collection of the two, but isn't it absolutely amazing?!?! Who wouldn't want to get married in from of the gorgeous red and gold Lady Luck sign? I am absolutely obsessed with the north gallery because it has some of the most vintage and gorgeous signs the museum has to offer!
