We stayed at Mandalay Bay twice and loved it.

I know someone who got married at Mandalay and they had a small group of people with them. For their reception. they rented a large suite and brought in their own food and had their reception up there.

I did notice though that on a Saturday at Mandalay Bay, it was back to back weddings… multiple couples standing around outside waiting for their turn so another day might be better if you donâ€t want to be rushed like that. Mandalay Bay Chapel was very nice.

The only other chapel that I've seen is person was at the Luxor and in person it looked like a funeral home. The lighting is set up so the focus is behind where the priest would stand and not on the couple. It was just weird.

 

We've used Priceline many times when going to Vegas and have always got a great deal and never regretted it.

I have a friend who lives in vegas.. She just got married at the GROVE.. it's a beautiful location off of the strip. about a 30 minute drive!!!!

 

It usually stays warmer there longer than it does here in PA. She sends texts of the temperature : )

 

I just stayed at excalibur and didn't really care for it.. The casino is very smoky. ... not well ventilated. I know that some of the more expensive casinos have better ventilation.

Went to a destination wedding in Vegas in February 2008 @ Treasure Island!  The wedding was beautiful in the Chapel.  There was about 30 of us and an added bonus was the wedding was done via satelite so everyone back home in Canada who couldnt make it got to see the wedding ceremony!! And I agree $4000 is more than enough!!

I am getting married in October of this year and we're doing it at a chapel and staying at the Vdara. I too have never been to Vegas but have found that so far the Vdara has been nothing but extremely helpful. The concierge has been an incredible help and the hotel is still new so from the pictures it looks amazing. (I will let you know more upon my return).

However, I have already experienced the overpricing on the wedding photos from the chapel and will say if I could have another option I wouldn't be using their services. But we're going to take our camera and have fun.

Our budget is 2k and we're finding it very easy to stay within that and still have something memorable and nice.

Good Luck

I live in Vegas so if you have any questions just let me know!  Vegas is warm May-Sept.  It is beautiful sunny and 70 degree weather October, Novemeber, March and April but can still have some cold days here and there.  Red Rock and Green Valley Ranch are two a beautiful hotels that are off the strip but have casinos, buffets and are more economical sometimes. A friend of mine got their Red Rock room on Priceline for under $75 but they put 89135 as the zip with a five star hotel. The pool is amazing and mountain view all around.    It is the only one in the zipcode so your really not taking a chance of getting a hotel that you dont want.   They run lots of specials.  I can tell you about great restraunts too if your intersted. 

 

Cheers

    • this topic is so nice. the sikh wedding cards are most important. when the wedding ceremony in Sikh.
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
