Sam’s Town – Mystic Falls Park
This locals casino and hotel with a mildly kitschy Old West/stampede theme is about 20 minutes east of the Strip. It offers the standard range of somewhat drab hotel meeting rooms and function spaces, but what makes it really special is the 25,000 square foot atrium called Mystic Falls Park. It’s a toasty (nearly tropical, as in the winter when I visited) indoor setting with a lot of natural light and a patio that overlooks the half acre of waterfalls and trees of the park below from the second level. The overlook is available for ceremonies starting at $350 for up to 100 people.
Reception Options: Catering is done in house with pricing starting at $25+ for plated meals, $34+ for buffet style, minimum 50 guests. Cash or hosted bar available, with $250 minimum. There are restaurants on site, but they are mostly casual chains.

Circus Circus – Chapel of the Fountain
Circus Circus’s recently refreshed chapel (named Chapel of the Fountain) is the longest running hotel chapel in town and has no clowns, carousels or circus memorabilia to speak of. In fact the space is quite understated and, dare I say it: classy. With simple ceremonies starting at $200, their great prices will stay within your budget. This unexpected gem may be the very place you have been looking for. Vow renewals and commitment ceremonies also available.
Receptions Options: In-house catering available for up to 600 people starting at $48 for dinner with an array of add-ons. Luncheon receptions also available.
Excalibur – The Wedding Chapel
Over the years, Excalibur has softened the medieval theme, and the chapel is not as Renaissance fair’d out as you might think, m’lady. However, for those who do enjoy the middle ages, the wedding chapel works with a custom costume company and has a wide range of renaissance period themed outfits for men and women available for rent. Mixed reviews online about how they look, but with other costume rental companies in town, you have choices.
There are two chapel sizes available, and both feature stained glass, trimmed topiaries (faux) and single chair style seating instead of pews. The larger of the chapels features a very nice vaulted cathedral style ceiling. Floral supplied by Foxtail Floral
Reception Options: In addition to ceremonies, the coordinators will also help you set up a reception on site through hotel catering, from $45 a person and up. There is a Bucca di Beppo just down the hall from the chapel as well, with great group rates.
Flamingo – Paradise Falls
The draw for weddings is their expansive 15 acres of gardens and pool area, which doubles as a bird habitat and sanctuary. It’s very tropical, being full of lush greenery, palm trees and crashing waterfalls to house the 300 birds, including Chilean flamingos, swans, ducks, turtle and koi. Elope to the grandeur of Paradise Falls, where you and a small group of your family and friends may enjoy the serenity of this natural area near a waterfall. Just 10 guests or fewer fit in this space, and there is no seating. There are unique add on packages such as butterfly releases and an opportunity to place a commemorative brick along one of the famous garden pathways. They do allow outside vendors and photographers for a fee.
Receptions: Flamingo Las Vegas offers a variety of catering packages including breakfast, lunch and dinner as cocktail, plated or buffet style meals from $24 and up. Dinners are in the $57-105 range with a minimum of 20 guests. The onsite Margaritaville is also a popular choice for receptions.
Planet Hollywood – Chapel
Although you wouldn’t know it, Planet Hollywood has been around in various forms since the early 1960s. Elvis even married Priscilla there, back when it was called the Aladdin. A few changes of ownership and since turning over to Planet Hollywood, the hotel has a Hollywood theme, with many of its rooms featuring silver screen memorabilia. Despite this, the chapel is more or less theme-free, save for some movie posters from movies about weddings and marriage in the bridal suite.
Planet Hollywood’s wedding chapel seats up to 65 guests and features a larger bridal suite, marble floors and a one of a kind glass art piece by world renowned artist Dale Chihuly. It’s very easy to find, just up an escalator from the main casino floor. One of the more unique themed package add-ons is the red carpet arrival where wedding attendees walk the red carpet and are interviewed by a spokesmodel about the wedding as they enter the chapel, recorded for use on a wedding DVD.
Reception Options: Restaurant receptions are possible at Strip House and Koi Las Vegas. Ballrooms are also available. Another property that is hip to couples hosting their own in-suite receptions, there are packages for meet and greet parties, morning after brunches and even two packages with receptions in a Panorama Suite.
Luxor – Wedding Chapel
The subdued, classic chapel at Luxor is devoid of any Egyptian theming (which I find sad, but I love casino theming!) There are two chapels (plus the Grand Staircase in the Titanic exhibit) to get married in. Wedding packages range from an intimate elopement for $299 which includes 20 guests up to the Diamond package for $1625.
Reception Options: The Egyptian Ballroom is easily adaptable to intimate settings for 25 guests or a lavish event that can accommodate 1,000 guests at a sit down dinner. In chapel catering is available for 75 guests, and poolside events can host from 150-700 people. Lunch, cocktail and dinner receptions (plated and buffet) available. Dinner catering from $48-66 for 25 people, minimum. Bar packages from $19 per person. More catering information here.
Quad – Skyline and Sierra Chapels
The Silver Sky Chapel at Quad includes two distinct chapels, the Skyline and the Sierra. The Skyline chapel is the signature wedding chapel, with seating for 70 amid an atmosphere of romantic whimsy, with a 50 foot long aisle and a color palette of blue, black, cream and white with custom uplighting options available. The quaint Sierra chapel accommodates up to 20 for an intimate wedding in a chapel with a mural of a southwestern scene.
