From Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng , you can use Vang Vieng (VIP) Departs 12:30, costs 130,000 kip, takes 6-7 hours. From Vang Vieng to Thakhek, Tha Khaek departs at 06:00, 11:30 and 12:00

See bus timetables here - pretty up to date info:

Note: Night bus Luang Prabang - Vang Vieng will probably arrive in the middle of night when it can be hard to find a room, plus you miss some of the best scenery en route. Also you will probably have to change buses in Vientiane onward to Thakhek.
