Hello all!

So my hubby and I are starting our travel planning by doing something crazy (at least to our families) and getting married in Vegas then taking off from there. Only problem is we've never been there! We're getting married next november and that'll be our first trip. We already know where we are staying, where we are having the ceremony but damned if we can find a place for our reception for 50 people that wont cost 50 bucks a plate (Love Mandalay Bay but no thank you lol)

So I'm asking all you locals and travellers if there are any locations you know of to host a fun, cheap reception for food and dance? restaurants, buffets, casinos, I dont care where, how cheesy (okay maybe not tooo cheesy) you have seen or experienced!

Hello

The destination weddings in Vegas I have planned so far, like either the Stratosphere or the Sahara for inexpensive meals, downtown Vegas is also an alternative. Breakfast and Lunch is also much cheaper than Dinner for Weddings

Congrats!

I'm sure our friend and poster VegasMike can offer some local suggestions.

In the meantime, the local newspaper runs a Best of Las Vegas voted on by mostly locals.

Congratulations and follow your heart!

Well, the good thing about Vegas is that there are a lot of churches that offers their services in package. There are different places where in you can get a wedding, souveniers and reception for a low cost. I will ask some friends which ones would be the best to go to...

Elisa,
First of all, congrats on getting married. Second, a big shout out for selecting Vegas for your big day! I will have to do a bit of research on where to hold a 50 person reception for a reasonable fee.

I was going to suggest Chucky Cheese Pizza, but you said not tooo cheesy. I think we both can agree that Chucky Cheese Pizza is tooo cheesy. Or is it? Problem solved if you like pizza?? I will send you some ideas via PM.

Thanx everyone!

This may turn out to not be stressful at all. It's for a tuesday november wedding so cheaper the better. I've looking at some chapel packages but they are still a bit to religious for us. My hubby and I are atheists and not wanting religious text or symbolism in our wedding which is why we chose the spring preserve for the wedding since we can hire an officiant.

You also have the option of using the services of the Clark County Commissioner of Civil Marriages. It's across the street from the courthouse where you will be obtaining your marriage license. The fee is reasonable and the civil ceremony dignified. This was the option my spouse and I used when we got married in Las Vegas years ago.

You may have to look hard but I believe there are one or two Elvis impersonators in town if you're lucky.
