By Rebecca Johnson
There are many options to take into consideration when planning a Las Vegas wedding. The Wedding Capital of the World has something to offer everybody. Whether it's a quickie chapel wedding that you seek, or something more out of the ordinary such as a helicopter wedding above the famous Strip, Las Vegas can dish it up.
Mention a Las Vegas wedding and most people instantly think of the cute little wedding chapels that line the Las Vegas Strip and downtown area. Drive-thru weddings and weddings with Elvis present are other images that may come to mind. These are just a few of the choices available. There are many other wedding options in Las Vegas that a lot of people don't know about. Did you know that you can get married on the pirate ship in front of Treasure Island? Or while riding in a gondola at the Venetian? Other unique wedding offerings in Las Vegas include a wedding at the top of the Eiffel tower in front of the Paris Hotel. Many hotels also offer in-suite weddings. The wedding ceremony takes place right in your hotel suite. The Paris Hotel even offers a wedding package that takes place on the 26th floor penthouse of its sister property, Bally's Las Vegas.
Destination weddings are also big business in Las Vegas with many wedding chapels offering packages for them. Popular wedding destinations include scenic Red Rock Canyon, Mount Charleston, and the Valley of Fire State Park. More unusual destinations consist of weddings at the famous Las Vegas sign, on a roller coaster atop the Stratosphere Tower, and at the Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.
Themed weddings are also a popular option. The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel offers many themed wedding packages including Gothic, Egyptian, Rocky Horror, Victorian and beach themes. If it's a 50s style wedding you desire, check out their wedding chapel that resembles a 50s diner. At the Excalibur Hotel they offer Medieval themed weddings with costume rentals available. If it's an Old West wedding that interests you, you may want to consider Bonnie Spring Old Nevada. This 1880s style town is located west of the Strip in the Red Rock Canyon area. They have a wedding chapel for ceremonies and also offer reception packages. If you are a big Star Trek fan, you might be interested to know that The Star Trek Experience inside the Las Vegas Hilton offers weddings on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. You can even have a Klingon present at your wedding.
So whether it is something traditional, exotic, or unique that you seek for your wedding, Las Vegas can deliver it. When planning your Vegas wedding, carefully research all your options. You may be surprised by what you find. One thing is for certain, in Las Vegas you can definitely plan a wedding that you and all of your guests will be talking about for years to come.
