    I'm gettting married on August 5th. Small wedding. About 6 family members and our baby girl. She will be 19 months.

    Still haven't decided on the place. At first we looked at the big hotels but we feel it's too expensive for what they offer. We have a small budget. 1000$ or less if possible.

    Anyone heard of this place :
    Las Vegas Wedding Packages - Complete Wedding Packages in Las Vegas

    We were hoping for an outdoor ceremony but we're afraid that it may be too hot in August.

    Valley of fire looked amazing but again it may be too hot.

    Any suggestions for an August wedding

      The places are beautiful...I especially like the lake-view locations, but the average temp is 103 in august so it would be great if they provided a tent or canopy of some sort!
      Good luck with your planning :)

        I haven't heard about the Always & Forever Wedding Chapel, but the photos around the lake are beautiful! And it seems that you get a lot for your money whereas many of the hotels on the Strip give you random things in their packages (chocolate covered strawberries are nice, but I'd rather have more photos!)

        August in Las Vegas is really hot, but at least it is a dry heat as opposed to a humid heat. If you have a shorter ceremony outdoors in the late afternoon or early evening it should be a little more comfortable for your guests. You could always leave a paper fan on their chairs to cool themselves during the ceremony.

          Congrats on your upcoming Vegas Wedding. I was thinking of getting married @ Lakeside as well. We are having an outdoor wedding in September. We decided to have a sunset wedding so that it will not be that hot! Good Luck with the planning. Keep checking the boards you will so much useful information here!

              There's a lot of nice venues for weddings in the Vegas area. Here's a couple you might want to check out:

              JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort, Spa and Golf Summerlin, Nevada

              The Official Home Page of Lake Las Vegas Resort

              I'm not sure what they charge, but they may have a discounted rate for August weddings, as that is the off season for weddings in the SW due to the heat.

              Best wishes,

                  Lakeside is really nice. I've shot a few weddings there. The photographers on staff at Lakeside are very good. I have worked personally with them.

                    I'll be on the beach is Aug in NC, so it can be done. But keep the ceramoney itself short no longer than 15 min

                    Provide water and fans

                    do it around sunset, it will be cooler

                    And do your reseption indoors or under something
