    Hi Ladies,

    My FI and I was thinking about doing a Jamaica wedding but since everyone is having a problem with this concept, my fiancee now would like to do a Las Vegas wedding.

    At first, I was not with it because when I vision a Vegas wedding I see cheesy, Elvis impersonator marrying us and that is not what I want!!!
    But I'm now with it being that is what he really wants/

    So now I am looking for a hotel that would be able to provide the elegant atmosphere that I am looking for.

    So if you ladies have any information that may help I appreciate it!!

          Welcome to the forum!

          For an elegant atmosphere for your wedding, I would look into the wedding salons at the Wynn, Venetian/Palazzo, Bellagio and Mandalay Bay. I found these hotels to have very modern, elegant salons. Also worth checking out on-line are Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood. On each hotel's website will be an page for their wedding services. From that page you can request brochures to be sent to you via email as a pdf attachment. I would share mine, but the prices are 2 years outdated! I found that I had the brochure emailed to me within 48 hours of my request.

          FH and I decided to get married at the Wynn. The packages fit our tastes and our budget better than any other wedding salon on the Strip. Our wedding coordinators have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have made the planning process a stress-free and enjoyable one.

          Good luck with your planning. The girls on the Las Vegas thread are always here to help with any questions you may have :)

            Hello and congrats!! I'm getting married in Vegas in October and after a lot of searching we decided to go with Caesar's Palace. They have beautiful Chapels to choose from and a gorgeous outside terrace too. I know didn't want the typical cheesy wedding either, so we did vegas beacuse it was reasonable and for our guests to have a great time. Good Luck!

            Try looking at their website Las Vegas Hotel Reservations at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, the have all the info you'll need to know

                  Hi and welcome to the forum!

                  I just got back from a site visit (which I will post in another thread), but my FI felt the same way you do about being cheesy. Vegas is anything but.

                  My FI was so impressed with the classy locations, that he even had to eat his words. My personal faves from my visit were the Wynn and Mandalay Bay.

                  As everyone else has said, you can find tons on info on the websites. Plus, it is so different from trying to find info out in the Carribean, where you would wait for weeks for a response. Everyone was really accomidating and the locations were really nice.

                  One more thing...July = REALLY HOT!!!

                      Congratulations. I am sure you will be able to find the best location for you two. I am getting married on Tuesday at Chapel of the Flowers. It fit our budget and is simple & classy for us. There is a lot to choose from and I am sure you will find a lot of good information here.
