Couples who marry in Las Vegas have lots of fun. Perhaps the union isn’t always everlasting depending on the situation, but hey it’s sure cheaper than a wedding at say the Hotel Bel-Air in LA or the Halekulani in Hawaii or any Four Seasons for Ritz Carlton. We’re talking lovely little chapels spread out in the wedding capital of t the world and 100,000 marriage licenses issued yearly.
Okay if a tiny chapel on the Strip doesn’t do it for you, there are more lavish ways to tie the knot such as at:
The Wynn Las Vegas which recently unveiled its new design inside The Wedding Salon, taking inspiration from an antique sterling silver box made by Buccelatti, with a creme duchesse satin lining. It features three elegant wedding locations, including two indoor venues and a beautifully designed outdoor space for wedding ceremonies or vow renewals. In honor of the reopening, the resort created the Diamond Extravagance package, which exudes five-star luxury. The package includes custom Cartier wedding bands, a first dance choreographed by performers from Le Reve – The Dream, a private party inside XS Nightclub, and a rehearsal dinner at the award-winning Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare, complete with a champagne toast by Chef Paul Bartolotta. The Margaux lawn, which overlooks the Wynn golf course, is where the couple will have the exclusive opportunity to host their romantic ceremony, with a customized reception to follow in one of the opulent ballrooms.
Bellagio Resort & Casino offers two intimate settings for couples looking for romance and beauty. The Terrace of Dreams is a popular choice and provides a stunning view of the Bellagio Fountains and its surrounding Tuscan landscape.
