          It is from dailyshop. The best way to find it is to go in bridesmaids dresses and sort price from low to high and 60 dresses on each page. If you do that, it will be on a page 2 or 3.

            I got it from dailyshop and it was there for 50.89 I think. I googled dailyshop coupons and put a code and got 10% off. So dress was 45$ and with delivery and 2$insurance(optional) I got it for 57$

            I saw the same dress on other websites for 120$ and 150$. Other websites were knock offs too. So I am not sure how bad it is going to be. But they said, if it quality is a problem they will even cover shipping charge for a return. I will let you know how I find quality when it will come in.

              Thanks for everyone's Vegas suggestions!!  We're staying at the MGM Grand and my friend's wedding is at Mandalay Bay.  I will let everyone know details once we get back.

               

              @hatfiehm...Thanks for the tip on comfortable shoes.  I did buy a couple pair of heels to wear out but maybe I need to find some ballet flats once I go.

               

              @Torilynnsmith...I will definetly be doing some shopping!!  I love outlet shopping...maybe to much! lol!

                I HEART VEGAS!!! I've been several times and ALWAYS have an amazing time! If you are staying at the MGM Grand, you are going to be at the far end of the strip so be prepared for a LOT of walking. Here are a few tips:

                 

                - Take a ride on the monorail. There is a stop at the MGM Grand so it's a great way to get to the opposite end of the strip.

                 

                - Buy a bus pass on the Duece. I only found out about this on my last trip and boy was it worth it. This bus stops at every hotel on the strip as well as goes up to Fremont Street and the Designer outlet mall. I think a 3 day pass was about $20 and it's hop-on-hop off. As others have mentioned, everything is a lot further away than it seems so it's nice to do a combination of bus/walking. It's also a lot less $ than getting taxi's everywhere.

                 

                - Shopping: my personal favourite is Macy's at Fashion Show mall. One girls trip we spent 3 hrs in the shoe department there b/c they had a giant sale! haha...good memories. As for the outlet malls there are a few, but I highly recommend the Designer Outlets....always lots of great deals!

                 

                - Vegas has some amazing restaurants but food expenses can add up real quick. If you are looking to save some $, try using restaurant.com; if you haven't used this site before it's great for traveling in the US. You basically buy restaurant gift certificates at a discounted price. Right now they have a promo on where you get 70% off....so a $25 GC would cost you $3. (use promo code 'DATE') Read the conditions on the coupons...some need a minimum spend to use the GC but most are even valid on alcohol! Some of my faves in Vegas are El Segundo Sol (Mexican with guacamole made at your table...in Fashion show mall), Valentino (the terrace in the Venetian), Ocean One Grille (very reasonable prices) and Stripburger for a quick bite. It's hard to plan where you are going to eat....so I usually buy several certificates when they are on sale and end up using a few but still save big $.

                 

                - Shows: you cannot go to Vegas without seeing at least one show! If you are planning on seeing a Cirque show (Love & O were my faves), check their web site to see if they have any promos for discounted tickets....sometimes they have them just for Canadians. I have found that cirque shows are always better to buy online before you go. For other shows you can buy tickets the day of at several kiosks on the strip (http://www.tix4tonight.com/). Also try www.travelzoo.com to see what specials they have on.

                 

                - Sightseeing: like others have mentioned...there is just so much to see and do in Vegas it's hard to give you recommendations. However, if I had to pick my top 5 it would probably be: Bellagio (Fountains & Flower displays inside), Shops @ Venetian (gondola rides etc.), Fremont Street Experience, Indoor theme park at Circus Circus (great way to spend an afternoon if you like rollercoasters), Just sit at the base of the eiffel tower with a drink in hand and people watch! Also, if you have time you might want to consider a day trip to either the Hoover dam or Grand Canyon.

                 

                - Night scene: although there are bars everywhere in Vegas, you need to find one that suits you. A lot of the clubs cater to younger crowds and are rammed on weekends (like you cannot even move rammed). For a bit of an older crowd we really liked Blush in Wynn...plus ladies received free champagne before 11pm. :) Another one I have heard is neat is VooDoo at the top of the Rio hotel. Just be prepared that most clubs will have insane lines on weekends so try asking your hotel concierge for club passes.

                 

                - Splurges: Last time my fiance and I picked up a special package on travelzoo that gave us a night flight over Vegas. We were picked up at our hotel in a pink hummer limo, taken to the air field where we boarded a 10 seater plane and flew over the strip at night....AMAZING! Afterwards we slipped the limo driver $20 and he dropped us off at Fremont Street where we spent the rest of the night. Best $80 I've ever spent in Vegas!
                 

                - Relax: This is probably the hardest thing to do in Vegas because there is so much to do! However, you are on holidays so be sure to take some time and just relax by the pool. If you're like me you won't get a lot of sleep when you are there, so it's a great way to multi-task...snooze while tanning! :)

                 

                Hope that helps! Have an amazing trip!!!!

                      Oh...another really fun one is Tony & Tina's wedding. If you are not shy to participate in an interactive show...this one is great! I went with a couple girlfriends and it was SO much fun!
