Pics or it didn't happen has taken on a whole new meaning. The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas is now offering brides and grooms the opportunity to tie the knot in an Instagram-worthy art installation based on the city's iconic A Little White Wedding Chapel.
On January 18, 2019, the appropriately-named exhibit, ’Til Death Do Us Part, will open for official wedding ceremonies. Joshua Vides, the Guatemalan-American graphic designer and visual artist, created the immersive pop-up that provides a cartoon-like backdrop for brides and grooms looking for an eccentric, photo-worthy ceremony. The black and white venue spans 800 square feet for couples to say their I do's in a one-of-a-kind setting.
In a statement to Brides, Vides explained his inspiration for the venue's design. “In 1982 Billy Idol released ‘White Wedding,’ which is often considered one of his most recognizable songs," he said. "With Idol's residency at Palms beginning in January of 2019, I immediately pictured a chapel in my white and black aesthetic as a staple experience during his stay in Las Vegas."
The "White and Black Wedding" offers four different packages for couples looking for a unique venue for their nuptials. The most affordable package, "Our Marriage Looks Perfect—On Instagram,” starts at $250 and offers an hour in the chapel, allowing for plenty of time to capture the perfect pictures for all of your social media channels, provided you find your own wedding photographer. The $500 "Shotgun Wedding” package includes an hour-long ceremony and time for photos in the chapel as well as a complimentary bottle of Moet & Chandon Ice Imperial.
Looking for a little more? The resort also offers two pricier options, including the $4,500 “For Better or For Worse” package that includes a one-night stay in the Make Good Choices Suite, a two-hour catered reception in the suite that consists of passed hors d’oeuvres, food stations, dessert station, and a beverage package. The “Black, White and Wed” package, which can range anywhere from $500 to $5,500, features a ceremony in the chapel and a four-course plated dinner at Scotch 80 Prime or Vetri Cucina for up to 24 guests. Additionally, couples will get a complimentary VIP admission to the Apex Social Club for their after party.
And trust us, your Insta post will get plenty of well-deserved likes for the price.
