By Nicole Weintraub

MTV host TJ Lavin has officially tied the knot with girlfriend Roxanne Siordia in Las Vegas, according to People. The two wed on November 2nd, which was planned accordingly since the two met eight years ago exactly on that day. The couple had been thinking about marriage for the past six years, though an accident involving a BMX dirt bike left him in a coma for several days disrupting the couple’s plans. The accident occurred two years ago and since, the pair has been focused on their relationship. Though, the groom claims he knew all along that Siordia was the one for him. “I knew I was gonna marry her the second I met her,” he reveals as the longtime duo opted out of a big, lavish wedding. “Fancy weddings aren’t our thing,” he explained as to their Vegas wedding. The couple has not decided on where they will be honeymooning yet, but Lavin will be adopting Siordia’s thirteen-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

What are the advantages to a Vegas wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

While many girls dream of what their wedding day will look like since their childhood days, some couples opt out of the big, lavish wedding. Here are some advantages to the Vegas style wedding:

1. Fast paced: The typical engagement period can range from several months to several years in which an extended amount of time is needed in order to plan the wedding. However, a Vegas wedding shortens the time span incredibly allowing couples to be united in matrimony in a more reasonable time span.

2. Cheap: Weddings are outrageously expensive. The more people you plan on having at your reception, the higher the cost of the celebration goes. Rather than going broke from your wedding, Vegas weddings are much cheaper and will not burn a hole in your wallet.

3. Low key: Instead of getting caught up in seating charts and who will be offended if they are not given an invitation, Vegas weddings are much more low key. Pick a few close friends and family to witness the ceremony and off you go. There is no need to invite every person you have ever met to a Vegas wedding.
