    Hello hello! I am now a Vegas bride! We were going to have our wedding in Cabo and then the swine flu happened and we had to cancel two weeks before we were supposed to leave. We lost tons of money and are now planning a small wedding at the Bellagio with dinner to follow at Sensi. We will have about 50 people attending. Planning a Vegas wedding has been SO much easier! I wish we went this route in the first place. I noticed no one is getting married at the Bellagio! Is there something I don't know about it?!?

      Yay! Another Vegas girl. The only outdoor venue at the Bellagio only holds 34 that's why I decided against it, but I don't think you have anything to worry about. It's a gorgeous hotel!

        Did you have to book a table at the piano bar in New York New York? I am looking into doing something after our reception and wasn't sure what!

        Another question, I am thinking of having a dinner the night before the wedding for any of our guests who are there and don't have plans. Any ideas of where i could have it?? Also someone we talked to at Caesars told us that there is an outdoor bar at like harrahs? Anyone know the name of this place? I can't seem to find it on google!![/QUOTE]

        Myturn,
        Can't wait to see your flowers!
        Yes we did book tables at the piano bar. They are holding all of them till I can confirm the guest count. We're paying the cover for everyone so we can all sit together. Was around $800 for everyone (estimating 60 people + tax and gratuity charge). If your interested I can give you the womans' email address that you'll have to contact.

        We are also having a rehearsal the evening before and providing dinner for everyone. But since we're going with such an expensive menu for the wedding dinner we wanted something casual for the rehearsal. So we were planning on having everyone up to our room (we have a suite) and we're ordering pizza. We'll grab a bunch of booze from the liquor store. We're also gonna give out our personal shot glasses that night!

        I know exactly what bar your thinking of at Harrahs! Carnaval Court! They always have a live band and the bartenders do fancy tricks. You can check out a quick video clip of it at the harrahs casino website. It not really a restaurant though, more of a bar, but they do serve food. Should be fine around dinner time, but its crowded late in the evenings. I've been to Vegas 11 times now so just let me know if you have any questions. I'm not an expert but I know most of the properties.

          Foxy,
          Thanks for the heads up!
          So happy to hear their is no outside vendor fee! Its such a scam! I can't decide whether I want to go with the silk flowers or not. I love real flowers but I know they're going to be expensive. The silk will cost a quarter of what the real ones will, but I don't want the silk bouquets to look fake in the pictures! AAAHHHH! Have you received your bouquets already? Do they look fake in pics??
          I was thinking of going with this bouquet but I'd have them use a dark purple accent color instead. My colors are aubergine and silver.

            Welcome AlmostaSeif! Don't worry, there isn't anything wrong with Bellagio :P FH and I chose the Wynn because the wedding package was a better fit for our budget than Bellagio or Venetian (as strange as that sounds). Best of luck with the rest of your planning!!

              Here are the flowers I ordered off Budget Bride. I am just going to get my bouquet to match them.

                  Wow! They do look fake at all! I love your colors! I was wondering if I should get the touch flowers instead of silk but yours look great! So you are getting your bouquet done in real flowers from Caesar's?
