Las Vegas Offers Many Unique Wedding Venues and Themes

By

Whether it’s for a traditional ceremony or wedding vow renewals, Vegas is one of the most popular destinations for group wedding events.

But most people who marry in Vegas often want to create unique experience that will be remembered by all their guests. While Vegas wedding venues will offer a full range of packages, including bouquets and boutonnieres, the minister, champagne, photography, entertainment and more, dig deeper and you’ll find some unique themes and venues.

If you can't go to Vegas, some of these options may give you ideas for your own wedding events.

1. Caesar’s Palace (Garden Wedding)

Caesar’s Palace offers three different wedding chapel packages that can accommodate an intimate group of 35 or a larger group of 196, depending on the wedding party size. But for those who seek a more unique experience, couples may get married in a Venus Garden setting, surrounded by tropical palm trees, a floral landscape and Roman architecture (seats up to 114 guests). Caesar’s Palace also offers an outdoor plaza setting (seats up to 230 guests).

2. Flamingo (Gazebo Wedding)

The Flamingo offers six different wedding chapel venues that can accommodate up to 100 guests. Options include a traditional indoor wedding venue, an outdoor pool, water falls and lawn. One unique package available at the Flamingo is the Gazebo Package, which takes place in a secluded setting that offers twelve-foot trees and white trellised archways (seats up to 100 guests). Flamingo also offers “Live Weddings,” an online streaming video that allows those who may not be able to see the couple in person.

3. Graceland Wedding Chapel (Elvis Wedding)

No wedding list of Vegas chapels would be complete without considering those in downtown Vegas or nearby. And no wedding list of Vegas weddings could be complete without including Elvis. The Graceland Chapel has been in Vegas for over 50 years and offers both a traditional wedding option and Elvis packages that offers Elvis performances or Elvis being available to give away the bride.

4. Mandalay Bay (Cabana Wedding)

Mandalay Bay’s wedding chapel is located by its 11-acre pool, and includes three different chapels that can accommodate either 50 or 100 guests. With 12 different wedding packages, Mandalay Bay offers its traditional chapel environments, but there are other unique options that event planners may want to know about. Specialty wedding packages include a ceremony that takes place in its Shark Reef or a Cabana Ceremony package that takes place outdoors and includes use of a cabana for the day. The Sun Villa Ceremony package also provides couples with the use of their own outdoor villa for the day.

5. Maverick Helicopters (Helicopter Wedding)

For those who can’t decide among the various options on land along the Vegas strip, there’s always the sky. Maverick Helicopters offers a wedding package that allows couples to get married while flying over the region. The only drawback to this is the limited number of guests in the helicopter: bride and groom plus up to three guests (weight permitting).

6. Paris (Eiffel Tower Wedding)

Paris Las Vegas wedding package options includes two different French-opulent chapels, Chapelle du Paradis which holds up to 90 guests and Chapellete du Jardin which holds up to 30. Paris also offers a less formal poolside cabana wedding package. But the most unique setting seems to be its Eiffel Tower Observation Deck weddings. Available for daytime or nighttime, the Eiffel Tower observation deck is an extremely unique venue, but is only limited to 12 guests.

7. Treasure Island (Pirate Ship Wedding)

Offers a six different wedding packages, including chapel options, but notable is the Enchantment Wedding Ceremony. It takes place on the Sirens’ ship located in Sirens’ Cove, and the ship’s captain performs the ceremony and a pirate swings down from the crow’s nest to deliver the wedding rings. This is where Treasure Island also holds its outdoor production, The Sirens of TI®. Treasure Island also offers “Live Weddings,” an online streaming video that allows those who may not be able to see the couple in person.

8. Venetian (Gondola Wedding)

The Venetian offers Italian-themed weddings, including nine different packages. Its traditional chapel has seating for up to 140 and may be divided for smaller sized groups. There’s also an outdoor wedding terrace that accommodates up to 50 guests. But two unique venues exist at the Venetian: Pont al di Piazza, which takes place over a bridge that is reminiscent of Venice (Italy), and the Ceremonia Sul’ Aqua, Ceremony on Water, which takes place aboard an authentic Italian gondola. The wedding couple floats while their gondolier serenades them to also create the ambiance of Venice.
