Aria – Chihuly Gallery

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.

Cost:
7500-11500+
Guests:
Up to 50
Aria – Fireside Lounge

Aria – Fireside Lounge

The Fireside Lounge is actually a location nestled inside Aria’s Spa and Salon. It’s a “feature that blends fire and water to create an ambient prelude or finale to the soothing treatments that lie within” which is marketing speak for: it’s a cozy space with a fireplace.

As a ceremony space the intimate Fireside Lounge is only available after 6pm and includes 50 Chiavari chairs, a pianist and aisle decor. As a reception space there is room for 60 at a small cocktail style party which Aria will help set up for you.

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.

Cost:
$3000-3250
Guests:
Up to 50
Aria – Focus Waterwall

Aria – Focus Waterwall

Did you know the 270-foot-long 24-foot-high curved water wall feature beside Aria’s porte-cochère has a name? Well, it does: Focus. And you can get married next to this living piece of art as the calming, synchronized rhythm of water provides a magical setting for your nuptials. And don’t worry – the waterwall is just far enough away from passing cars you likely will not notice them. This is not a very private wedding spot, though, and there is standing room only.

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.

Bellagio – Terrazza di Sogno

Bellagio – Terrazza di Sogno

The Terrazza di Sogno wedding option is classic Las Vegas, taking place in front of the iconic fountains at Bellagio. You may invite a maximum of 34 guests to join you on an Italian balcony made of marble overlooking the blue water. You are allowed to choose one song for your kiss, and it will do its thing with the dancing water on the Lago di Como behind you as you celebrate your new marriage. It is only available as an upgrade to the ceremony packages, for $2000. Sometimes, especially over Christmas, there is a discount on the package, so if you are flexible and really want this location, it’s worth watching for. For smaller weddings, the Fountain Courtyard offers a similar experience.

If you are interested in having a mobile ceremony service perform in front of the fountains on The Strip, you may like to see this rough schedule of Bellagio fountain songs, from January 2013. I’m not sure how often they change the order, but this is a good guide to know what songs are played, at least, if not when. Be warned that even the sidewalk in front of the fountains, right next to the street is NOT public property – Bellagio owns that sidewalk right to the curb, and they may ask you to leave if they see you holding your wedding there. Be ready for a little adventure!

Reception Options:  Reception packages are priced from $125+ per person for different combinations, including plated meals, buffets, hand passed canapés, action stations, and toasts. Luncheon receptions are an option, beginning at $82 per person. Hosted bars start at $25 per person per hour.

Cost:
$4000-27000
Guests:
Up to 34
Bellagio – Fountain Courtyard

Bellagio – Fountain Courtyard

The romantic courtyard at Bellagio is framed by stunning Tuscan landscaping, and is a very intimate space for a wedding, overlooking the Lago Di Como and fountains. It’s a good alternative to the Terrazza di Sogno wedding package and is more intimate, with space for just 10 standing guests.

Reception Options: Reception packages are priced from $125+ per person for different combinations, including plated meals, buffets, hand passed canapés, action stations, and toasts. Luncheon receptions are an option, beginning at $82 per person. Hosted bars start at $25 per person per hour.

Cosmopolitan – Wedding Suite

Cosmopolitan – Wedding Suite

The Wedding Suite on the 36th floor on the Eastside Tower of Cosmopolitan puts an original twist on the classic ceremony.

With breathtaking backdrops and gorgeous views, the Wedding Suite provides the perfect venue for a memorable wedding experience or vow renewal. In addition to the stylish common area and terrace, there are also separate lounge spaces for the Bride and her party, or for guests to mingle and relax.

Reception Options: Wedding suite bar packages start at $30 per person per hour. Hors d’ouevres from $35 per person. In-house catering for buffet and plated meals from $105 per person, with charcuterie, mixed hot and cold items, seafood displays, and mezze being additional add-ons.

Cosmopolitan – Insuite Weddings

Cosmopolitan – Insuite Weddings
