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

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
