do you have a budget?  Im told the 4 Queens on Fremont has just upgraded their rooms.  We are doing a suite at the Golden Nugget- having ceremony, mocktails, and dessert reception in suite for 15 poeple. 

Elvis is visiting before the ceremony- our elvis will entertain with at least six songs he says, work the crowd, and doing a duet with MM.  http://www.gigmasters.com/Elvis-Impersonator/Frankie-Castro/

hope that helps a little

If you decide again to go with the strip my co-worker is having her reception at the Mandalay Bay in a suite. She said it was pretty affordable for her small wedding (40-50 people). She also said the wedding coordinator there has been very helpful so far.

We used Kent Ripley from A Elvis Chapel. He was awesome!! We didn’t have a reception in Vegas, so no advice about that. Although we stayed at the Flamingo and it looked like they had a nice outdoor chapel.

we flew out to las vegas and visited ten venues in 3 days.  there’s a place right off the strip on sahara called victoria’s chapel.  it’s a little cheesy and the sales lady was a little crazy but it was inexpensive.  in the end, we wanted something is a little nicer so we went with something else. 

we also visited rainbow gardens and the grove.

@Ronneykay: I think he looks like a young cute Elvis! It was either $400 or $600, I can’t remember. But we went with the more expensive package they offer because we wanted it at the Vegas sign. You can try to connect to him via Facebook instead of going through the Chapel (especially if you aren’t going to do your ceremony there). You might be able to get him for less if you go directly to him.

Just know that he can’t legally marry you (he does the ceremony), so you still will need some minister or other legal officiant. David, the minister at A Elvis Chapel, is super nice.

Also, my advice for *all* Vegas brides–if photography is important to you, hire a separate photographer. Most chapels will offer photography as a part of the package and even call it a ‘professional’ photographer. But if you look on their sites, you’ll see that it’s just regular ole photos, nothing special.

We are spending our budget on photography, airfare, rooms for guests. Some food ( in suite reception, mocktail hour) buying brunches sat/sunday for 15 folks.   No flowers- bought awesome fans as souveneirs for guests- and practical breezes – just in case. Oh and Elvis is 200$ for an hour.
