    Ew. I think it’s beyond rude that anyone would make suggestions to you about where you should be having your wedding. Don’t second guess yourself or your budget because of other people.

    I’m so sorry. I would like to know why people think it’s okay for them to say something like this. Honestly, if someone is saying that then they don’t need to be there. They are more concerned about where you are having the wedding than the fact that you are getting married to a man you love. That’s wrong!

    My opinion? Stick to what you have! You shouldn’t have to spend more because people think you should or because it may or may not be “Vegasy”. Screw that!  Are these people who say these things the ones who are paying?  Are they friends?  Or are they just “people”?

    That kind of turns my stomach to imagine someone suggesting that your reception isn’t going to be as lavish as they would prefer. It’s a little hard to answer your question because you don’t provide a lot of perspective on what it is that *you* want as far as the vibe and feel of your reception, but I don’t hear you saying that you’re attracted to something like a Bellagio reception – or that you can squeeze such a thing into the budget. If the Hilton in Vegas is what you like, then a lunch reception followed by a fun night on the town with your loved ones sounds like a lot of fun! I’m reminded of the bride (can’t recall which bee it was!) who is having a mid-day ceremony followed by a day at Disneyland for all the guests together. Who is going to complain about that? Shrug it off.

    I think you should stick with the Hilton. It is within your budget and you can have Vegasy accents. We are also doing a lunch reception to save on costs. If your guests have issues, that is their problem. You and your fiance are the ones that need to be happy. I am sure the guests will be more than fine, once they are there.

    I say stick with the Hilton. Unless those people are helping you pay for the wedding, they don’t get a say in where it’s held.

    Have the wedding that you and your fiance want, at the venue you want. If someone else doesn’t like it, they should just stay home as they don’t care about you if they are already making such judgements about your choices. Your family and friends who truly love and support you will be happy to celebrate with you anywhere.

    I say stay with the Hilton.  I honestly wouldn’t want a typical Vegas wedding, and if they want that sort of thing, they could do that during the rest of the time they have in Vegas.  You should go with what you want and what you can afford.

    Typas Vegas will be WAY too expensive. If someome wants the vegas vibew, they can go walk outside and walk the strip. Pshaw.

    Stick ith the hilton, you’re good.those people just want you to provide their vegas experience. which they can do themselves IMO!

    I think the Hilton Garden Inn sounds great! I think they are nice hotels. Yes, it may not be very “Vegas-y” but who cares? It’s still going to be nice, it’s still going to be in Vegas and people are still going to be able to go out and have a good time in Vegas. The Hilton is still on the strip so it’s not like you and your guests will be very far from the typical Vegas hotels. I think you should go for it if it’s what you want.

    I’m sorry, anyone who said that my wedding wasn’t what they wanted wouldn’t be invited anymore. Simple as. Obviously it’s a lot easier for me to say this than it is to put into practice. I just think it’s hugely rude for someone to say that your wedding won’t be “Vegasy” enough. After all, how are they to know what you’re including to make your wedding unforgettable? 

    Stick with the Hilton if you liked it.

    I work for a Hilton Garden Inn, so I am biased, but I say stick with the HGI.  If you are happy with the reception budget they quoted you, I wouldn’t spend more elsewhere.
