I am in Victoria and we got married in Vegas in 2011 and it was easy as pie to organise.

Check out Maggiano’s for your reception. They have large and small function rooms and pretty good room minimums. Some people also hire a suite 9the vista suites at Mandalay Bay are popular) and have their receptions in there using a catering company (masterpiece cuisine is a popular choice).

We got married at the Las Vegas Sign by Elvis (so I guess that is tacky to you) so didn’t go through a chapel but I have read good reviews about chapel of the west, chapel of flowers and little whit chapel. But all of the big casinos have wedding chappels attached to them as well. The Juno Gardens chapel at Ceasars is really popular.

I mostly used the knots vegas board to help plan my wedding as it is much more active than here and the girls and guys were very helpful.

We also used Bentley and Wilson for photography and they were brillant and the cost was great compared to Australia especially since we got the rights to the photos and all images on a disc.

I used pam from the pallette for my flowers and was beond pleased with the results.

Good luck and don’t get daunted.

We had 32 guests come out of about 80 so it was a smallish wedding.

We had big plans to go out afterward and dance the night away but ended up in the hotel pool instead having a few drinks. It was over 40 degrees and with being up early to get ready and the heat by 10pm most of us were ready for bed.

I did have my hens night 2 days before the wedding in Vegas so we danced/partied that night so I don’t really feel like I missed anything.

We did a strip tour after the ceremony to get photos and it was really cool to have people coming up and congratulating us and yelling out to us and so many Asian tourists wanting to get photos with us.

I Live in vegas and am getting married here:) Do you have anything really specific you ae looking for? I can put you in contact with some wedding coordinators or wedding places. FOr the chapel is it non-denominational? Bahama Breeze is a great reception place for what you are looking for. It’s fun, near the strip. Also a lot of the strip hotels have chapels and wedding packages that might be exactly what you need. Definitely will be under your budget. Mandalay Bay, Luxor, Aria, Cosmopolitan, Planet Hollywood are just a few that I can think of off the top of my head. If you want me to research mroe for you I can. Let me know:) Vegas is my game. Born and raised:)

@Brickette:  It’s ok I knew what you meant LOL. I saw Chumlee and got his autograph at the Batman movie over the summer. My FI said we should take it to the Pawn store and try to sell it to him when they are filming just to be funny hahahaha.

Hello!

I am also looking to get married in Vegas!  Thinking we are going to have to have 2 weddings actually – one in the Valley of fire (or something similar) and then what I am considering as my REAL wedding with Elvis!

I am just worried about having to book everything online – sight unseen – how do you trust that you are going to get what you think you are getting?

Also for the first wedding – his mother has just decided that we must have an actual reception (not a fan – but I suppose if 20 – 30 people are travelling all that way we can’t just wing it)  I am a fussy eater and we will have at least 1 vegatarian – it is my nightmare.

Will be taking notes on all your suggestions!

Thanks

Hello there! I’m also looking into getting married in Las Vegas. I got in contact with Maggiano’s they have very reasonable prices and the place is very nice. My second choice is to take everyone to dinner after the reception to a nice restaurant. We are getting a penthouse room at the Vdara they have gorgeous rooms at decent price we are planning to have all our friends over about 20ish after dinner hope that many people are allowed in lol.
