I never heard of renting a home for a wedding, this is new to me 🙂  I am not sure how to go about it the only thing I can say is maybe find a good wedding planner and have them help you out with all that, they maybe the best ones to guide you on what to do next.   Can’t wait to see what it looks like after though!!

we tried to go this route. planned and tried to find venues for over a year, both here and in Tahoe. We just ran into too many problems. Crazy fees, HOA restrictions, parking, etc.  one owner had his home listed for ‘weddings and corporate retreats” and turned us away because we were expecting 30 ppl at the time. The house SLEPT 22!!!! Wha? Another took our deposit and called 2 weeks later saying the home had been sold and was only available for 45 days.  It became my nightmare and we switched gears entirely.

Make sure to ask looooots of questions, and be totally honest about what youre planning. Hopefully your process will be smooth and work out well!!!

My best advice would be to hire a wedding planner. They can just be present for the day-of if you prefer and just pay them for the time spent to set up. Look into a few planners in Vegas and I am sure you can find something! 🙂

We rented a home for a reception, but ours was pretty casual and was brunch, and not in Las Vegas, so I’m afraid I can’t help you with the vendors. 

BUT, I can give you a couple of pointers:

1. You’ll need valet service

2. You might also have to check with neighborhood noise ordinances if there’s going to be dancing late at night–I’d also check with the neighborhood association regarding parking since the valet will take up a lot of the street. 

3. I dont’ know how pricing goes in Las Vegas far as the catering goes, $1K seems quite modest–for 50 people, that’s only about $20 per head. What are you doing about a bar? BUT, with only 50 people, you CAN cook for yourselves (if you are up to it!) and there are plenty of DIY catering books out there, if your’e somewhat handy in the kitchen. 

4. We had to purchase additional liability insurance for the additional people–might want to check and make sure that’s not the case for you.

PS–we had a brunch for about 100 people, catered, but we used eco-paper plates and plastic utensils. We rented real glasses and used IKEA tekla towels as napkins. The table coverings were brown kraft paper (2 long banquet tables) and I calligraphed the seating directly onto the paper. We didn’t have centerpieces; instead, we did empty cans (with the labels removed) with crayons so people could draw, and I printed out buffet menus that were placed at regular intervals along the table. I want to say that all of that, plus the table and chair rentals was somewhere around $700?
