There are many images which have become synonymous with Las Vegas; gambling, showgirls, extravagant hotels and more light bulbs than anywhere else in the world. One of the resounding images of Sin City is that of the drive-thru chapels, where ceremonies are conducted by priests dressed as Elvis and the Wedding Breakfast is a complimentary Pizza Hut buffet. Not all Vegas weddings are of the impromptu variety, however. The vast array of 5* hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants and decadent shopping malls have made Las Vegas one of the world’s most sought-after wedding destinations.
The famous Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas is one of the most celebrated and acclaimed places to stay in the city. Many respected travel publications have rated this elegant hotel the best in its class. Whilst it may be smaller than many other hotels in Vegas (housing a modest 424 guestrooms), what it lacks in size, it makes up for in sheer luxury and opulence. The on-site wedding packages provided by the hotel make it an ideal venue for a classy and refined wedding ceremony, without an Elvis-priest in sight. Before the ceremony the bride can take advantage of the sprawling spa facilities, whilst the groom and his groomsmen can enjoy the outdoor pool. After the ceremony, guests can dine in one of the resort’s two on-site restaurants and retire to their carefully designed rooms, with plush carpets and beautiful contemporary furnishings.
The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is located at the south end of the strip and is in perfect position to access everything Las Vegas has to offer. The stunning guestrooms feature minimalist décor and contemporary artwork to create a more boutique hotel experience, and all rooms feature 42-inch plasma screen televisions, stunning backlit headboards and stone vanities. The ‘beach’ at the Mandalay features almost 3 tonnes of real sand and is about as close to the real thing as it gets in the middle of the Nevada desert. Chefs such as Michael Mina, Alain Ducasse and Wolfgang Puck have all set up camp here, with cuisines ranging from Italian to Thai to American to French. Best of all, this beautiful hotel features three separate wedding chapels and has a specialist team of wedding coordinators to ensure the big day goes swimmingly.
The Venetian Hotel spoils guests for choice in every sense of the word, with ten fine dining restaurants on-site, nine casual eateries, a five-acre pool deck, four choices of evening entertainment (including Jersey Boys and Blue Man Group) and a wealth of shops and spa facilities. Wedding facilities are decorated in a stunning, authentic Italian style and parties of two or two hundred can be accommodated at this beautiful venue, named Best Luxury Hotel in 2009/2010 by Thomas Cook.
