    What a gorgeous and unique place to have a wedding!  I would completely choose the Castle.  And SLC is actually a pretty neat town, so there will definitely be things for your families to do there.

    As a former Vegas resident, I just have to vote for the Springs Preserve. Vegas is AMAZING in October–it will be absolutely perfect weather!

    @shannon: So far so good.  Can’t really do much yet since I don’t have my CAC card but I have an appointment to get it on Monday!

    I love the castle and think it’s gorgeous.  If you are concerned about the lodging situation in Layton, keep in mind that Layton is a suburb of SLC and not out in the boonies.  You will have plenty of options.

    What a tough decision!  Both of those venues look really awesome.  What does your SO think?

    You gotta go with your gut on this one.  If you’re not sure what your gut is telling you, I’d say to write them down on two pieces of paper and pull them out of a hat/choose randomly from behind someone’s back etc.  When the one is announced, you’ll know if it was the one you wanted or not.  (Does that make sense? I’m having a hard time describing what I mean). I do this all the time, and it usually works – either I’m happy with the one chosen, or I suddenly realize that I really want one of the other options.

    Good luck deciding! Either way, it looks like it is going to be beautiful and fun!

    Both locations are easy to fly to, so you really can’t go wrong.

    I would go with the castle since it is more unique and thus guests will remember it more.

    I don’t know… for a Destination Wedding I kind of feel like the location needs to be a true vacation destination, so that your guests can get that benefit out of coming to it. I actually was invited to a good friend’s wedding in Utah a few years back, and I was strapped for cash and couldn’t justify spending the money to fly out to a place I would normally never travel to, for her wedding. I know it sounds a bit selfish, but to be perfectly honest, if it would have been in Vegas, I would have found a way to afford to go. I do understand that Salt Lake City is a vacation spot in it’s own right, but I just think that more people would be interested in traveling to Vegas. Just my $0.02. 🙂
