Was hoping to get some advice on the bus trip between Vientiane to Vang Vieng?
If we fly into Vientiane late is it easy to catch a bus early the next morning?
I have read that booking a VIP bus/mini bus is a gamble because you might sometimes be on a plastic chair in the isle. Are the normal buses ok to travel on?

It's just a 150km 3-4hr ride so don't stress over it too much. No need to pre-book a bus just get to the Talat Sao bus station early like 7-8am and take the next departure. If you end up on a plastic stool well that's just Laos for ya, part of the "experience". Or book a minivan with a guesthouse or travel agent the night before (costs more but faster and you'll be with other backpackers on the way to make "Friends"!)
