While planning your Las Vegas wedding, you may consider looking at wedding packages that Las Vegas Hotels offer in addition to accommodation. The idea of getting married at the hotel where you stay while in Vegas is quite reasonable. First of all, this solution is very convenient to the newlyweds and their guests — the ceremony and the reception will be organized at one place and the guests don’t have to go to other hotels before and after the wedding. Usually the hotels offer very good deals if you buy a package from them plus the bride and the groom will get to spend a night after in a luxurious suite, with champagne, chocolate and breakfast in bed, etc. Those are just some of the extras thrown in by the hotel wedding coordinators if you decide to get married at their hotel.
Las Vegas is the place where the customers really benefit from the competition between the businesses by getting the highest quality services and products reasonably priced. Obviously, when you get married at a lavish 5-star hotel you can’t expect to get married with a budget under $1,000. Yes, it is possible in Vegas, but if you’re looking for something special, you have to pay for that. But the hotels in Las Vegas offer much more than the small chapels. The Strip hotels have both the breathtaking amenities (chapels, restaurants, suites and banquet halls) and the best-qualified professional staff — able to create for you the most romantic wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
So don’t l look for a simple Elvis wedding or a quickie drive tru ceremony when you think of getting married at one of Las Vegas hotels. Don’t you deserve to think much bigger? And whatever you dream of it will be delivered… There is practically nothing that the Strip hotels couldn’t provide. From fantastic themed weddings like the very romantic ceremonies on a Venetian-style gondola (at The Venetian) or on top of the replica of the Eiffel Tower (Paris Hotel) to saying “I do!” in an adventurous way – on the pirate ship (Treasure Island Hotel). They can even make a wedding for you based on your favorite TV show! Imagine exchanging vows on the bridge of the USS Enterprise, having Klingons and Ferengi as witnesses; yes, it’s possible, no problem… (Las Vegas Hilton Hotel).
Those are just some of the themed weddings that are becoming increasingly popular lately. The other very popular trend is offering — in addition to the traditional ceremony in the hotel’s chapel — some kind of wedding package that includes exchanging vows outdoors. Usually the ceremony is taking place in a garden (often with a gazebo or a fountain as a backdrop for nice photo opportunities) or near the pool. For example, the Aladdin Hotel, the Paris, MGM Grand, and Sahara Hotel offer poolside weddings. And as for the garden weddings, you will certainly love getting married at the majestic Wynn Las Vegas Hotel that has a secluded outdoor courtyard with trees and fountains, but you also may choose the Flamingo Hotel that has five outdoor garden locations for your nuptials that feature gazebos and waterfalls. If you’d like to get married near a pond or fountain, then Caesars Palace Hotel outdoor wedding will certainly make you happy.
Still, for those looking for more excitement during the wedding ceremony, they may choose saying “I do!” high above the ground with amazing views of the Strip below. The Eiffel Tower package mentioned already (especially the Twilight option) will suit them very well, but how about exchanging vows at the Stratosphere Hotel — at the top of the Tower, 800 feet above the ground on the outdoor observation deck…
But if the height scares you, the Bellagio Hotel may be a good choice for you, because you can get married there on a terrace overlooking their beautiful lake and the world-famous fountain show.
Those tastefully created wedding packages at the Las Vegas Strip hotels don’t come cheap, but having a great way to start new life together is well worth it. And no doubt the bride and the groom and their guests will remember for many years to come their elegant ceremony and reception. Almost every package includes video and picture sets and very often a web cam broadcast is provided so that your family and friends who were not able to come to Vegas can watch you and admire on the Internet how great you looked and how successful your Las Vegas wedding was.
And just if you’re pressing me hard to tell you how much those romantic hotel weddings are, here are some examples (naturally, they may change at any time): Eiffel Tower Wedding At Twilight Package — $10,000 (but only $3,300.00 if not at twilight…); Pirate Ship Wedding — between $2,499 and $3,199; Venetian Gondola Wedding — between $750 and $4,500; Star Trek Wedding — from $500 to $3,000.
Vow renewal packages are also available and they are very popular — because if you come to Vegas once, baby, you’ll be coming back…
