    Hi,
    I am considering getting married in Vegas however I don't really want to do it at a chapel or on the strip. Ideally, I would like to have the ceremony and then lunch/brunch or maybe dinner at a restaurant instead. Something pretty informal. I definetely don't want a dinner reception because I don't want the production of a wedding (i.e. speeches, dance, etc).

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to do something unique and yet casual.

    Thanks for your help!

    well there are casinos off the strip, Green Valley Ranch is stunning and Red Rock is very modern looking (if you watch the Housewives of OC they just filmed an episode there).

    Otherwise a lot of weddings happen at the Valley of Fire.

    As for dinner it will depend on where you pick for your ceremony.

    Hope that helps. I will let you know if I think of anything else.

        Valley of Fire or Red Rock Canyon is nice. I'd also recommend Marche Bacchus for a reception. They are a French bistro with fabulous food and great service. They are on a lake, and the atmosphere is intimate.

        I've recently photographed a reception there. The bride and groom loved the place!

        Here's the website if you want more info.

          Thank you very much for the suggestions! I will definetly check it out.
          I went on the Marche Bacchus website and the restaurant looks lovely!

          The prices seem very reasonable in comparison to the cost per person at a hotel.

          Do you know much a cab ride might be to this restaurant from the strip?
          Thanks again! :)

              I loooove Cilis and they are flexible with anything you want to add to make it unique, ie. a string quartet, etc.

                  Have you thought about Lake Las Vegas? There are some really nice resorts, but far enough away from the strip that it is quiet and relaxing.

                  We had a wedding at the restaurant at the Monte Lago and the wedding party had the whole upstairs. It was secluded, intimate and "not your typical wedding"

                  Hope that helps. Best of Luck with the planning!

                    Be careful, Lake Las Vegas is closing most of its resorts due to bankruptcy.
