Las Vegas offers everything from amazing natural environments to super glamorous hotels. Vegas draws just about everyone from just about every walk of life, age group and interest demographic. There is so much to do, enjoy and experience in this city, it’s virtually the perfect place for a destination wedding. You’ll have the time of your life, your guests will have the time of their lives and your wedding will be the party of the century.
There are lots of options for today’s savvy brides. Those clever brides who can somehow pull off a long-distance destination wedding are definitely our heroes. Most brides, however, don’t get through the planning process with at least throwing something and possibly experiencing a couple of anxiety attacks. For those brides, we have three words: destination wedding package. Las Vegas is packed with fun hotels, most of which offer wedding packages. You can have just about any kind of wedding you want from super elegant to fun and frivolous. Start at the top with the Bellagio, boasting a wedding chapel that rivals just about any cathedral on the planet. Look at what they offer over here.
Let’s look at the fun and frivolous…as in more fun than you’ve ever had. Instead of spending your whole wedding budget on a highly planned wedding, maybe consider the option of a civil ceremony. Yes, that does include the drive-through, fast-food version of a wedding and the ever popular Elvis impersonators. Nevada’s marriage license laws make the process of committing to each other so easy and stress-free. THEN, get out there and party with your friends and family like it’s the last party on earth. And, people, Vegas is all about the party.
The middle road is a fabulous venue offered by the Monte Carlo hotel. And this venue isn’t really a compromise for your dream day. Located right on The Strip, this venue offers attractions galore. There are planners and coordinators right on site and the florist is absolutely top drawer. This venue offers just about everything a bride could dream of or imagine. The chapel is glorious, inspired by the great European wedding chapels. This one seats as many as a hundred guests, and even offers the possibility of webcasting for those dear, but not so near, who are not able to join you for your special event. The dining available for your rehearsal dinner, reception festivities and perhaps even a morning-after brunch is stellar and world class. The accommodations are modern and luxurious. The wedding packages offered at the Monte Carlo are inclusive and delightful. Check it out over here.
For those wanting a more nature-based setting, without giving up the comfort and amenities of a gorgeous resort, the Red Rock Resort is just the ticket. This venue is equal in glitz and glamour, nature and glorious vistas, with The Strip just a short shuttle ride away.
One of the best things about the Red Rock Resort is that their wedding packages are amazing, individualized and – best of all – affordable. You and your guests can enjoy some great guest rates for accommodations and your wedding will be photographed against stunning desert backdrops and glowing sunsets. There are a fairly wide variety of locations within the resort from which couples can choose to exchange vows. There are also choices available for rehearsal dinners, receptions and brunches. Wedding packages at the Red Rock include ceremony fees, reception set up, stellar service and a delightful three course dinner. Check out the details over here.
