Don’t worry—the Chapels of Love and the Elvis-look-alike ministers are still in business. But today, Las Vegas seduces twosomes with personalized destination weddings that no one on your list will want to miss. These three Vegas venues offer va-va-value for a variety of budgets.
You don’t have to spend a bundle to wed at Monte Carlo, but getting hitched at this big, buzzy fun magnet is no compromise. Expect a dead-center Strip location, a 100,000-square-foot casino and an entire city’s worth of attractions. Wedding coordinators and an on-site florist are available to fulfill every last-minute request a bride can imagine. The chateau-inspired chapel seats up to 100 guests, and a Webcam option beams the ceremony to guests who were unable to travel for the celebration. For your rehearsal dinner, reception and morning-after brunch, take your pick of the hotel’s luxurious suites and divine world-cuisine restaurants—from French at Andre’s to Asian at Dragon Noodle Co. Later, explore wedded bliss behind a “Do Not Disturb” sign in your sleekly modern Monte Carlo digs. Insider tip: The Spa Suite boasts a Stripview Jacuzzi.
The Bottom Line: Wedding packages include wedding planning services, ceremony music, a bridal bouquet, a groom’s boutonniere and a wedding photo album.
