Aria – Chihuly Gallery
If you are a fan of glass artist Dale Chihuly’s colorful designs, you will be excited to learn that the Chihuly gallery at Aria offers space to host wedding ceremonies and receptions. Chihuly is probably best known for the glass sculpture on the lobby ceiling that stops visitors in their tracks next door at Bellagio, but his work also hangs in the chapel in Planet Hollywood.
You and up to 50 guests can experience the modern glass art worth millions of dollars alongside sculptures and prints during your wedding ceremony in the one-of-a-kind space on the ground floor just outside the main valet in the Gallery Row shops. Aria will also set up a long-table reception in the loft-like, somewhat industrial space.
Reception Options: Dinner at one of the 17 on-site restaurants, or reception add-ons to ceremony packages including a two-hour open bar cocktail reception with tray passed appetizers plus wedding cake at Deuce Lounge ($5000 for up to 29 guests, $9500 for up to 59 guests), Social House or in a suite.
Neon Museum and Boneyard
Get married surrounded by Las Vegas history! Neon nerds and design geeks will love this venue that is a little vintage and a little modern and serves as the home to many of the retired neon signs from Sin City. The Neon Boneyard is part of the Neon Museum, and is the two acre lot adjacent to the museum that actually holds the signs. This historical landmark is a repository for the largest collection of neon signage in the world, more than 150 famous casino, hotel and business signs from through the decades, beginning with the 1930s. It’s particularly enchanting at night when the signs are lit or have lights highlighting them. It’s available as a ceremony and reception space.
It’s also a popular spot for wedding portraits, trash the dress sessions and engagement photos, but you must book time to do so and pay shooting fees. If you’re local, the fee is $150 for half an hour. For all others, $400-$600 for an hour of shooting time.
Reception Options: The lobby (La Concha) and boneyard itself are both available for private events, and a private guided tours of the Boneyard may be set up for an additional fee for your wedding guests. Catering is supplied by preferred vendors.
