I went to a wedding in Vegas a couple years ago.  It was super small (maybe 15 people?) and they had the ceremony on a balcony of the Bellagio overlooking the gorgeous fountains.  They made reservations at a fancy restaurant, I want to say at the Venetian, and treated us all to an expensive dinner and drinks.  There was no dancing or music, but it was very nice!  They ended up doing a reception later when they got back to PA.

Here’s the balcony.

And here’s the view of the fountains.  They went off right after they said their vows.  It was gorgeous.

Ya know, I have absolutely no idea how much it cost.  But it can’t hurt to find out.

i was going to suggest the Wynn hotel for luxury and lavishness but i just read that Bellagio isn’t in your budget so Wynn won’t be either.  What’s your theme going to be? This will help out those who can help you since each hotel has its own theme.   i saw a wedding at the Flamingo about a decade ago and it was awesome the pictures they were taking in the gardens but i haven’t been to Flamingo in about five years soooo i don’t know how it is now.   also i noticed you haven’t put a date down. For a Vegas wedding, i would suggest having a wedding the weekend after a major vacation holiday (like the weekend after memorial day or fourth of july or labor day) so you can get the best prices and the least crowds.

My husband and I eloped in Las Vegas. We got married at a little chapel then went back to our hotel {Bellagio} for dinner and drinks. We had our families with us, so there was 10 of us all together. It was very nice.

 

How many people are you thinking?

I think you’re going to have a hard time finding a nice hotel with Elvis, etc. Are you sure you don’t want to do a kitchsy chapel ceremony then back to one of the great hotel restaurants or bars for the reception? That is much more “hipster” to me then just having Elvis at one of the hotels.

Have you looked at the Palms or Planet Hollywood? Or the Encore, which is a Wynn property?

hi! we’re getting hitched here (it’s not on the strip…it’s downtown, but it sure looks nice and everyone i’ve talked to has been so friendly)! so far the plan is to do a lunch* at wolf gang puck’s bar and grill. they have private dining options, with a kick-ass hip atmosphere, and our guest list is in the 40-50 ppl range for now. the restaurant isn’t set in stone yet, but i may start my own thread for suggestions. anywho, we’re going for the “dream” package at the chapel which will include limo to and from our hotel, my bouquet, his boutonniere, some photos, an internet brodcast of the ceremony, use of a bridal suite to dress in, and a few other things for about $500!

 

*the reason we’ve decided on a lunch is that we’re getting hitched on 10/10/10 at 10am….at first we were doing the deed at 5:30, but since 10/10/10 is a sunday, we figured it would be more accomidating to our guests that may need to be back to work/school on monday if we had our festivities in the earlier part of the day for the sake of their travel/real life needs. plus, this means i get the spend a WHOLE DAY in my kick-ass dress 😉

keep us posted on your plans! as a fellow vegas bride, i’d love to bounce ideas off eachother!

When my sister and I were in Vegas last year, we saw a few weddings at the Flamingo, where we were staying.  One wedding was in the gardens and the reception was at the pool.  The other one I think was in the gardens and the reception was at Margaritaville, which is inside the Flamingo.  If you’re looking for sort of an offbeat thing, Margaritaville could be fun!
