I’m originally from Vegas, but I live in TX now. We are getting married in Vegas in Jan at http://www.dragonridgecountryclub.com in MacDonald Ranch.

I know what you mean about not having it on the strip!! πŸ™‚

I was a Vegas local for 30 years and got married in Vegas this past December. I did the ceremony and appetizer/dessert reception at my home church, then had a big after party in the Voodoo Lounge on top the Rio! Besides my immediate family, the rest of the guests where from out of town, so we wanted to have something “Vegasy” for them, hence the club.

For some off strip wedding locations: The Grove, Rainbow Gardens, Sunset Gardens

Hi!  I’m local as well and find it ironic that most of the venues are geared toward the destination brides, focusing on small parties and such.  The venues that are able to accomidate 50+ guests seem incredibly expensive!

We finally settled on a ceremony location & ARE using one of the local chapels for the all-in-one value of it, but haven’t chosen a reception location yet.

 

Good Luck!

We are getting married at a church and then having the reception at the Platinum Hotel.  I like it because it’s not on the strip but close enough for our guests to experience it.  And the hotel doesn’t have a casino which I LOVE!

We got married in a church and then had our reception at Sienna Golf Club, completely off the strip.  Warning though: We paid $5000 to rent the ballroom, when we originally thought we were going to save money by being able to bring our own vendors.  We almost paid double in the end!!

But, its a really gorgeous setting!

We are getting married 8/6/11 and are getting married at the Four Seasons hotel.  It is lovely and if some of our guests want to enjoy the strip they can but there is no casino and it is quiet and elegant – so excited!!

We also looked at Griffin Mansions and Loews Lake Las Vegas and they were both nice and not Vegas-y either

This thread seems to be dead (like the rest of the Vegas boards too!) But I thought I’d post and things might liven up!

Darling Husband and I have lived in Vegas for 2 years now. The Air Force put us here and we got sucked in! We just got married in December in our home state of Colorado. We considered getting maried here and we looked at a few resorts off the Strip.

The Ritz Carlton in Lake Las Vegas (when it was open!)

I am a local bride,

 

I am getting maried at the Artisian Hotel and doing the reception at Maggianos.  Most og my family and Freidns are coming in from all over the place and the strip is a central place.  I am good with it and wouldn;t have it any other way.

I grew up in Vegas but haven’t lived there for 10 years.  I’m havng my wedding there since most of my family still lives there, but it’s stressfull trying to plan from 3,000 miles away.  I agree that it’s really difficult to plan a non-Vegasy, non-‘destination’ wedding in Vegas!  My fiancee has quite a large family and we’re looking at having at least 80 in attendance.  I’m having a hard time finding a nice place for a casual wedding where I can DIY a lot of stuff (I don’t want to be forced to pay for an all-inclusive package with details I don’t want).  Thankfully, I have just over 11 months to plan, but I want to lock down a venue soon!
