Note: Free rides are for bride and grooms only and cabins will include multiple couples being married and officiated at the same time. This offers the chance to share the experience with perfect strangers inside the 28 cabins of the High Roller that can accommodate up to 40 passengers!

To be among the betrothed couples participating in the free weddings or vow renewals on the wheel, Caesars Entertainment is welcoming crazy-in-love couples on a first-come, first-served basis. Those wanting to wed must bring the required marriage license, state or government issued identification and of course their never-ending-love and a sense of adventure. Each of the lucky couples will not only receive the free wedding, but also a complimentary champagne toast and commemorative photo following their “I do.”

Although this truly extraordinary day of weddings begins at 10:11 a.m., interested couples may secure their place in history by arriving to line up as early as 8 a.m., complete with marriage license in hand. The first licensed-to-wed couples will begin boarding the 28 circular cabins of the High Roller at precisely 10:11 a.m. for two hours and two minutes for the morning of simultaneous round-the-wheel weddings. The free weddings on the wheel continue until the stroke of 12:13 p.m. After that, the High Roller will continue to offer special 12/13/14 wedding packages for private cabin ceremonies starting at $1700.

To make the day official for couples who want to either wed or renew their vows on the landmark date, a search is underway for ordained ministers in Las Vegas who want to participate in this historic event by officiating weddings inside the cabins of the High Roller. An open call will be held on Thursday, Nov 20 from 10am-2pm at The LINQ Fountains. To be considered, those interested must be certified and licensed as a wedding officiant in the state of Nevada and must be available between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 12/13/14. For more information, visit our Las Vegas Blog, The LINQ, as well Las Vegas Weddings.

Walking Down The Aisle, Celeb Style

October 21, 2014 on 12:53 pm | In Airlines, London, Scotland, United Kingdom, Wales, Weddings Honeymoons | Comments Off

Cheapflights.co.uk rounds up some of the glitziest star-studded venues of recent years

Following from George Clooney’s Hollywood style wedding in Venice last weekend, Cheapflights.co.uk has picked out the crème de la crème of celebrity weddings – from the outrageous expense and publicity of Kimye’s wedding to the more private and demure ceremonies involving Elton John/David Furnish and Brangelina.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, Venice, Italy – Hearts across the world were broken when George Clooney’s bachelor days officially ended at the end of September. George and Amal’s wedding was a spectacle worthy of a film set with iconic images of water taxis carrying guests up the grand canals of this waterborne city. Venice is a dramatic destination to start a life together, with the autumn and spring the best times to get married to avoid the peak summer tourist season. George’s venue, the Donà Palace Hotel boasts restored historical features that will take your breath away. However, this is just one of the many beautiful places you can get married in Venice, the Palazzo Cavalli, where civil ceremonies take place features an imposing location overlooking the Grand Canal.
Return flights to Venice start from £83.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Chateau Miraval, France – The most highly-anticipated wedding of recent years was a long time coming but turned out just as beautiful as people hoped it would be. Brangelina exchanged vows at Chateau Miraval, a 1,200 acre estate in the village of Correns, South-west France. They have called this place home for a number of years now, making it nearly impossible to book it for your own personal wedding. However, there are many beautiful places in the Provence-Cote d’Azur region of France such as the Chateau Val Joanis where you can wed among vineyards, beautiful gardens and courtyards.
Return flights to Marseille start from £88.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Forte di Belvedere, Florence, Italy – The historic heart of the Renaissance movement, Florence has the history, the designers and the weather for a great wedding. Start your life together in the enchantingly beautiful Tuscan region of Italy and discover a plethora of romantic backdrops for your special day. Whether you want to get married in a castle, at a vineyard or on an estate, Tuscany will not disappoint. Consider the Red Hall of the Palazzo Vecchio for a traditional and romantic Italian wedding or check out a villa, such as Il Cocceto, for a truly intimate and unforgettable time.
Return flights to Florence start from £72.

David and Victoria Beckham, Luttrellstown Castle, County Dublin, Ireland – The Beckham’s are not the only celebrities to tie the knot at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland. It is a popular spot for posh weddings with majestic surroundings and sweeping grounds – ideal for celebrities looking for privacy. This castle boasts a timeless sense of elegance and tranquillity while providing a remarkable and unforgettable backdrop for any wedding celebration. The best part of getting married in Ireland, though, is that it has an abundance of castles to choose from for your dream wedding including Ashford Castle, a recently renovate five-star hotel in County Mayo.
Return flights to Dublin start from £59.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish, Windsor Guildhall, Berkshire, UK – After 12 years together, Sir Elton John and David Furnish tied the knot with a civil partnership ceremony at The Windsor Guildhall. This historic building, which was designed by Sir Thomas Fitz, is filled with charm and is perfect for anyone looking for a wedding steeped with culture. The Guildhall Chamber is the most accessible within the collection and is available for wedding ceremonies on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and can accommodate up to 100 of your loved ones. With the Queen’s history of wedding crashing (Manchester, 2012), there’s even the chance you may have a Royal visitor with Windsor Castle just 100m away.
Weekend car hire starts from £40.

The Savvy Bride’s Guide To The Spa

August 24, 2014 on 11:18 am | In Books Guidebooks, Spa Resorts, Weddings Honeymoons | Comments Off

Goddess Swimwear from Today ShowWeddings take some serious planning and looking your best is likely at the top of your to-do list. Brides have so much to plan – so we hope Spafinder Wellness 365′s Spa Guide for Brides takes some of the stress out of organising your special day. We recommend that you invest in a series of spa visits, starting four-six months before your wedding. Many spas have packages specifically for brides, so do your research, find your perfect spa and prepare to get gorgeous!


1 Plan ahead.

Make a list of your wellness and beauty priorities: if you have trouble skin, focus your time and resources on a series of facials. If you’re super stressed, regular massages will ease tension and give you soft skin. If your hair needs attention, choose a spa that can help you get luscious locks.

2 Get a body wrap.

There are body wraps designed for many purposes: detoxify your skin, lose a few inches, soothe aches and pains, get super-soft skin and more. Spafinder recommends booking a series of 4-6 body wraps for best results.

3 Take your fiancé.

Book a couples massage with your other half, or for a unique experience we highly recommend booking a Hammam experience together. Skin is exfoliated & cleansed with black soap and Rhassoul clay is applied to purify the skin. End the day with a relaxing visit to the sauna with your loved one.

4 Start body brushing.

Body brushing is a guaranteed route to glowing skin. You can do this at home every day with a body brush and compliment your regime with a lymphatic drainage massage at the spa. Body brushing improves circulation, softens skin, reduces cellulite and helps the body eliminate toxins.

5 Remember to enjoy it!

Savour your pampering time at the spa – use it to de-stress, unwind and calm your mind. You likely have a million things flying around in your head, from worrying about which poor soul to seat next to Uncle Jim to whether your bridesmaid’s gowns are the right shade. Use your time in the spa to quiet your mind and let your body relax, recharge and restore.


1 Get a facial a few days before your wedding.

Facials draw out impurities from the skin, which can cause breakouts and redness. For this reason, it is recommended that you have a facial no less than one week prior to your wedding For radiant skin, Spafinder Wellness 365 recommends a series of facials before your wedding (try once a month for 6 months).

2 Wax on the day of the wedding.

Similar to facials, waxing should be performed at least a week before your wedding. You want your wedding day skin to be glowing and smooth, not irritated and red!

3 Do a DIY fake tan!

We’re sure you’ve had horror stories about brides doing their own fake tan before their wedding. Don’t go there – it’s not worth it! If you want a fake tan, pay a professional, preferably one you’ve used before or someone recommended by a friend.

4 Stress about money.

We understand that it’s not possible for everyone to visit the spa each month in the run-up to your wedding. No matter what your budget, we want you to be able to enjoy the spa – you can even do this at home with our DIY spa tips. Give yourself a facial, enjoy a detoxifying bath and even make your own lip balm wedding favours!

5 Hesitate to ask for a discount.

If you’re booking a series of spa treatments, you will likely be entitled to a discount. Sometimes, though, if you don’t ask you won’t receive – so be sure to ask!

Did you know…

42% of UK weddings take place in July, August & September.1

If bronzed skin is on your wish list, book a series of sunless tanning appointments.

Hens love the spa.

A whopping 42% of wedding guests think that a spa weekend is the best kind of hen party. 2

Feeling stressed? Have a masage.Brides can suffer from a fair bit of stress, so book a massage if things get too much. Massage relieves anxiety, depression and significantly lowers the stress hormone cortisol. 3

Great Destination Weddings Goes Global

August 22, 2014 on 8:35 am | In Weddings Honeymoons | Comments Off

Great Destination Weddings has announced a brand new APP – with the entire 2014/15 annual edition available to read as a FREE download (a saving of $9.90 for readers)!

With destination weddings booming around the globe – and Australian couples falling in love with the trend – a branded App is the perfect way to share the stunning content of Great Destination Weddings. After all, in America alone, statistics reveal 16 percent of marriages are destination weddings, with the market accounting for billions in annual spending. And, while it isn’t easy to get an exact yearly figure for Australians indulging in a destination wedding, few would dispute that there seems no end in sight with this exciting wedding trend.

Great Destination Weddings (sister title to the hugely popular Holidays for Couples magazine) is already a force to be reckoned with in the holiday-wedding and romance travel market and has inspired countless couples through its beautiful pages and website. Its new App will take this effect even further, with readership set to soar.

To mark the milestone, Great Destination Weddings has made the entire first edition available under its own branded App as a FREE* download, to a potential worldwide audience of more than 2 billion smart phone and tablet users via Apple iOS, Google Play and Microsoft.

Readers can enjoy nearly 200 pages of gorgeous wedding destinations – from Thailand to Bali and Europe to The Pacific Islands and Australia, couples will be swooning over the destinations featured. Real brides open up to discuss their destination wedding and offer tips, advice and inspiration, and here is even a range of gorgeous destination videos, to help couples get themselves in the picture.

The opportunities for advertisers looking for new markets are endless, especially when you consider that a Sydney couple could be just as interested in a wedding in Thailand as one researching their holiday wedding from London. Managing Editor Tanya Joslin says the App has already generated plenty of interest, with advertisers in the current issue (released June 2014) excited about the launch.

The App has also opened up other opportunities for tech-savvy marketers. For example, marketers who want to go beyond the magazine page can now take their destination to the world with their own 20-24 page guide. Whitsunday Marketing and Development has already taken up this opportunity with the release of a 20-page Wedding Whitsunday Guide, available as its own mini-magazine download for free through the GDW App.

The print magazine will continue to remain available through Australian newsagencies and via subscription for the many couples who still love the tangible experience glossy magazines offer. It is also available in selected bookstores in Asia and New Zealand.

Email news@greatdestinationweddings.com.au for more information about the print magazine, the website, the GDW App, or the opportunity to discuss a branded Wedding and Romance App for your business.

*The print magazine is available for $9.90.
