WHERE YOU CAN WIN THE AIR AND HOTEL JACKPOT IN LAS VEGAS
Not only is it relatively inexpensive to fly to Las Vegas, but hotel rates can be terrific especially in summer and winter. The key is to avoid scheduling your big day during large conventions, which send room rates soaring.
For a modernglam wedding, book the Julian Serrano All-Inclusive Package at ARIA Resort & Casino, which includes two nights’ accommodation for the happy couple, breakfast in bed, use of the hotel’s chapel for 90 minutes, ceremony arrangements (consultant, flowers, photography, music, offi ciant and custom marriage-certifi cate holder), and a two-hour reception at chef Julian Serrano’s restaurant at the hotel. Select six hot or cold tapas dishes, pitchers of red and white sangria, and a dessert trio, ranging from $8,000 (20 to 30 guests) to $13,000 (50 to 60 guests).
Rooms from $129. If a chapel is too traditional, how about tying the knot in a glass cabin as it slowly rotates 550 feet above the Vegas Strip?
High Roller, an observation wheel at the The LINQ Hotel & Casino, hosts ceremonies for up to 25 guests with its High Stakes package, which includes a wedding coordinator and celebrant fee, champagne for guests in the third-fl oor Sky Lounge before boarding, and one hour (two rotations) in a private cabin for the ceremony.
The package starts at $2,300; from there, add a premium open bar on board for $550 (plus minimum $100 gratuity) and hors d’oeuvres (from $250). Follow with a custom plated or buff et dinner reception at a newly opened venue adjacent to the Sky Lounge (from $100 per person). Rooms from $79.
