My BF (fiance?!) decided – this weekend – to elope to Reno or Tahoe… in a month! We want to have a very small ceremony with my parents and some close friends. Any recommendations on venues? We don’t want anything expensive, and we plan on only having 4-7 people attend. My parents can get free rooms at the Harrah casinos in Reno (they retired to Las Vegas, so they’re Platinum Harrah’s members), but anywhere within driving distance would be fine. Thanks for ANY feedback!

@viola47: Hi and welcome viola!
Where would you envision a ceremony? Do you want mountains and a lake bechind you, with views? Or do you want to be more in a city like environment in a high desert? I’ve been to both Lake Tahoe and Reno.
Personlly, I’d be Lake Tahoe, just because it’s going to be 100x more prettier!
There are also tons of elopement packages in Tahoe that would accomodate a few guests. There is a Harrah’s in Lake Tahoe too.
Check out these websites:
http://lakefrontwedding.com/ – go to WEDDINGS and then see they have small weddings and then $1000 and $2000 weddings and up.
For $975 + $225 for the minister you could have a beach front lawn wedding with views of the Sierra Nevadas, up to 20 guests, photography, chairs for guests, bouquet/bout, wedding music, day of coordinator, etc. You can throw in cake and champange for extra too on location.

When I was planning my first wedding, I looked into Harvey’s. The only reason I didn’t go that route was that it was too far for our guests. http://www.harveystahoeweddings.com/

Thanks for the feedback! We’re trying to keep it super cheap – like under $200. Also, we decided to just say screw it and go to Reno. It’ll be fun! We can always take a day trip to Tahoe for pictures.
