If you are considering Las Vegas for your destination wedding, you might have an idea of what Las Vegas weddings are all about.  But real weddings in Las Vegas may surprise you (and your guests!).  Yes, it’s easy to find a chapel to drive thru, or a famous celebrity impersonator to act as your officiant.  There are also stunning landscapes, beautiful lakeside venues and of course, the always impressive lights of the Las Vegas strip.  Las Vegas offers something for every one of your guests.  Dining, shopping, entertainment, spas, travel and so much more.  Your guests will love getting away for a weekend to a place where they can try out a new restaurant, see a favorite show, stay in a swanky hotel, go on a shopping spree, spend time at the spa and then dance the night away.  Or they can head to Red Rock Canyon or Lake Mead for outdoor adventures like hiking, boating, cycling and horseback riding.  What other place in the world offers so much?  During the week of your wedding, you have the luxury of enjoying time with your guests instead of finding ways to keep them busy.  There is plenty built in to our city to make the entertaining easy and memorable!
