If guests are able to have cocktails and snacks during the time between the ceremony and reception, I don’t see a problem with having it at 6:30 or 7.  I do believe there’s a lot to see in Vegas but 1 – 1.5 hours isn’t going to be a lot of time to really do anything for your guests.  I’d hate for them to go get wrapped up in something and then be late for the reception! So I personally would make sure they were entertained at the reception area with light food and drinks.

Oh!  I didn’t realize your hotel had things like gambling and, I presume, shows and other forms of entertainment.  Then I would say it’s absolutly okay to have a 1.5-2hr gap. 🙂  Plus they could always go back to their rooms in the hotel and freshen up!

I would say the gap is absolutely ok!  There will probably be an hour gap between my ceremony and reception, and definitely not so much to do in the suburbs!  We have a ton of out of town guests, so this would give them time to refresh at the hotel, and our reception is probably a good 25 minutes away.  Most guests are unfamiliar with the area, so we didn’t want to make them feel like they had to rush out of the ceremony to try to find the reception cite.  Our reception is the top floor of a restaurant- so we further justified it because we would be perfectly fine going early and ordering a drink at the restaurant while we wait (I’ve been to many weddings with a gap with literally no where to go).  I would say because it is Vegas with tons of things to do, most guests would actually appreciate the gap.  They could go into the casino for a bit, or freshen up in their room.
