What even wild west weddings in Utah have to have
Utah surprises visitors all the time. The state where it’s illegal to gamble actually supports several legal casinos. It’s OK to gamble there. Dinosaurs didn’t just roam here; they seemed to congregate. The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry has 30 complete skeletons, more than 1,000 individual bones, and several intact dinosaur eggs. Then there's the natural beauty. The landscape is shockingly diverse with mountains in every county, forests in the north, south and center, lakes and deserts, and dramatic wild west settings that include natural arches and bridges, canyons, and of course, that Great Salt Lake.
What may not surprise people is that so many marriages happen here that Utah lands among the top ten in the country. This, people would guess, would be because of the Mormon population. While that may be true, people marrying here, whether Mormon or not, are seeking the same extravagant celebration that brides and grooms all over the world want. But it’s not all about grandeur; they want a wedding that is a personal statement, a symbol and celebration of a deeper commitment. Sometimes it is grand and elegant – from the Grand America Hotel to the LaCaille with its banquet hall, sweeping views, and vineyard. Sometimes the style is more casual. Regardless, people marrying in Utah are more concerned about making it meaningful to them than they are about trends.
So while trends in weddings may be running toward industrial, you’re just as likely to be invited to the mountains, to a cabin, or to a back yard. This is the west, and rustic still draws fans at farms, barns, and sites like Barbwire and Lace. Greenery may be trending nationally it’s nothing new at places like Atrium Weddings and Events. They may embrace a gourmet menu in Utah, but the menu may also include lime Jell-O with carrots.
Rent photo booths
Another thing they keep on their entertainment list regardless of what wedding magazines say is “in” is the photo booth. Here and many places the photo booth is becoming as necessary as the wedding ring. It’s as much a mainstay as the cake-cutting tradition. Utahans are making sure to rent photo booths as part of their wedding day and receptions festivities because they capture memories for not just the bride and groom but for the wedding guests, too. They create fun as well as wedding favors. They spark guest activity and involvement. Even great-aunt Sue is picking up props and making her way over to the photo booth. Photo booths make down times active. Those long minutes waiting for the bride and groom to arrive suddenly breeze by as guests mug for the camera.
No matter what type of entertainment you have, don’t forgo the photo booth. Put it on your list or tell your wedding planner to make sure it’s booked.
