    My name is Melissa and I am newly engaged. We have decided to elope and have our trip to Vegas booked and the wedding date set (Sept 19, 2009).....now we just have to figure out the actual wedding. It is just my husband-to-be and I going so I dont want to spend too much money. We would love a wedding in the valley of fire and were considering booking with Scenic Las Vegas Weddings. The VOF is more expensice but I am afraid the chapels may be too cheesy.....and our room possibly awkward (but beautiful as we are staying at the Venetian)? I am looking for an intimate wedding with lots of pictures to bring home to family and friends. I am hoping to find some ideas and advise about which companies can be trusted with your special day in Vegas :)

        Congratulations and welcome. A wedding in Vegas is sure to be a good time. When I was there in March we saw a few brides on different nights having a great time taking photos all over the strip. If you like being the centre of attention (like myself) and want some unique photos you should surely take pictures on the strip at night.

        Good luck with your planning.

                I think a VOF elopement would be so romantic even if it is a little pricier! I know there are packages that will limo you out, marry you and take you back to your hotel or somewhere for dinner. There are so many chapel options that don't look cheesy. You can name your personal style (modern, outdoor, church like, etc) and find the chapel that fits your style.

                Ceasers & Wynn have some great garden chapels, Mandalay Bay has a very clean modern look, MGM more traditional decor. You can even go quirky and have a pirate ship wedding at Treasure Island or Shark Reef at MB. Sky is the limit!
