Non Cheesy Vegas Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My name is Kylie and my fiance and I are planning a Vegas elopement in July-August 2014. We will possibly have some family traveling with us, but it won't be many. We want something intimate and romantic, but none of the cheese that you see on movie Vegas weddings. Do any of you have any ideas for somewhere to start. We have looked at the Bellagio packages and they are lovely, but would love some more options.

 

Thanks in advance.

My brother just got married in February at the Chapel of Flowers and I have to be honest, it was an all time cheese fest! From the decor, down to the awful music!!! If you are looking for something that isn't cheesy then stay away from any kind of chapel.

Hi RNtoBe,

Congratulations on your upcoming destination wedding!

I am so sorry to hear that you feel this way.  We take pride in the ceremonies we perform and the numerous award we have won because of our professionalism, attention to detail and happy couples.  Typically, the bride and groom can select their own music or choose from the traditional selections we have.  If you don't mind, could you please give me your brother's first name only and wedding date.  I would really like to look at their ceremony.  Sometimes we are also confused with other chapels on the Las Vegas Strip.  Las Vegas destination weddings are not popular with everyone, but we strive to provide an excellent experience at Chapel of the Flowers for our couples and their guests.  

Many thanks - Chapel of the Flowers

Hi RNtoBe,

Congratulations on your upcoming ceremony!  I am sorry you feel that way about Chapel of the Flowers.  We pride ourselves on being one of the best stand-alone chapels on the Las Vegas Strip.  We have won numerous awards for our presentation, service and have many happy couple and reviews.  If you don't mind, please share your brother's first name only and his ceremony date.  I would like to take a look at his ceremony and make sure we performed to our standards.  Not everyone is excited about a Las Vegas destination wedding, but we strive to provide and elegant and luxurious experience.  Thank you!

Hey there

Im also from Australia getting married in Las Vegas in April 2014. Whilst Chapel of the Flowers is nice, they do not allow your guests to take ANY photos and it is quite expensive to buy a cd with all of your pics on it (so that you have the digital files for extra prints / posting online). Now this is ok if you are eloping and happy for just a few prints of your wedding pics. Photography was SUPER important to us especially for our guests to be able to take pics so thats why we didnt go with the Chapel of the Flowers.

 

The Chapels at Mandalay Bay and the Wynn are absolutely gorgeous. Ive also heard great reviews about the gardens at Caesars palace however this may not be a good idea for a summer wedding as it is HOT in Las Vegas. I chose the Flamingo Hotel for my wedding as I will be having a few guests (about 40) and they allowed me to bring in my own photographer. There is a new wedding chapel opening soon at the Aria hotel which I think will be absolutely gorgeous too.

 

Best of luck with planning and please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Hey Kylie! My name is Tatiana. My FH & I are planning on a June 2014 wedding. We would love an outside ceremony but I'm just a tad bit hesitant since it will most likely be hot. So far I've checked out Mandalay Bay, Caesars, Mirage, and Chapel of Flowers. We are having around 35-40 family and friends come. All of the venues are pretty nice and having such a hard time choosing. But those are my ideas. Good luck picking a venue. Keep us posted.

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
