Weddings With A Twist Planning a Destination Wedding? Kick those nuptials up a notch by planning a Vegas wedding with a twist. Las Vegas offers way more than a drive thru at the famous Wedding Chapel with a minister dressed as Elvis conducting the ceremony. Most of the major resorts offer wedding, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies with a little special twist. Some of them downright quirky.
Couples can wed on a pirate ship with buccaneers at Treasure Island, have a biker wedding at the Chopper Chapel, or include among their guest list celebrity wax figures as Madame Tussauds. The Las Vegas strip is sprinkled with hotels with city themes. That means you can tie the knot on a special white gondola floating down the Grand Canal at the Venetian Hotel. Or wed on the observation deck of the Eiffel Tower. Or travel back to medieval times and hold a 16th century wedding at the Excalibur Hotel’s Canterbury Wedding Chapel. You can be the King and Queen while family and friends dress as the royal court. “Merlin the Magician” is the officiating minister.
Hotels are not the only ones offering that “certain something” to make your wedding unforgettable. Little Chapel of the Flowers (littlechapel.com) offers a, fun and fabulous adventure you’ll never forget. You can exchange vows in the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the Grand Canyon or have a touching ceremony aboard the Lady of the Lake Yacht.
Wedding packages range from $199 at Madame Tussands to $8,000 at some of the stand alone chapels. The price, of course, depends on how elaborate you want to go. But most packages averaged about $1500. For more information contact the Las Vegas Wedding Connection at www.lvweddingconnection.com or any of the hotels directly.
