    I'm not even sure if i'm posting this in the right area.  I've been spending days and hours researching hotels and wedding packages in LV.  I don't want to spend thousands, i just want a nice, elegant wedding ceremony with maybe MAX 20 people.  I would like DH and i to stay for the week, and anyone who wants to come, are welcome to stay the weekend (we want to marry on a sunday early afternoon), and are welcome to stay longer if they want.


    I find it hard to figure out what is available as a complete package.  Like 7 night stay + wedding package, etc.


    Any advice?  I'm also in Canada so I'll have to factor in airfare.  I'm just worried i'll pick a hotel or wedding package that i'm not happy with, and want to be sure that what i see is what i get.


    Any info, or experiences shared are most appreciated.


    is it better to pick a hotel and go to a chapel?  or pick a hotel that offers wedding packages...


    I'm freaking out!   :(

      Have you tried going through a travel agent? I'd recommend calling some- I think it will save you a lot of time, stress and tears! I recommend calling a Flight Centre near you and asking to be referred to their wedding department! My FC TA has been a lifesaver :)

        I would recommend looking for a local wedding planner.... They will have done it all before and be able to give you good advice

          A wedding planner is probably a good idea but I would also try and read any Las Vegas wedding reviews that you can. I find it so nice to actually read about someone who has gone through the exact same thing and a lot of brides really take the time to write out everything in detail which is awesome!!!


          Happy Planning from another Canadian Bride!

              I agree - there is so much information online! If you can afford it, I would totally recommend a planning trip. It will give you a better feel for the chapels in person, and your different options. It's totally overwhelming because you literally can have any kind of wedding you want in Vegas. A small sweet elopement, a big crazy banquet, cocktail party, drive thru wedding...

              A lot of chapels will give you a deal on your room if you book through them. Think about the location you want your chapel to be in, then pick colors or theme. Some are more classic (Imperial Palace, shockingly, has a beautiful new chapel) and some are more themed - tropical, French, Roman are all options. Then you can go indoors or outdoors... I don't think I helped, did I? :) Good luck!
