We did 18 1/2 years ago!

We had both had short live marriages (1-2 yrs) w/ big weddings--the folks said this time you are on your own. We were broke, so Vegas was perfect!

We were married at the Candlelight Chapel across from Circus Circus (now moved to Henderson as a historic site). When we went to get the license, we were the only ones in a suit & dressy dress. Others were in workout gear, drunk, 80s prom dresses...guess they thought we were really serious--they didn't even ask for ID! Cheesy as heck! Horrid dinner at the Riviera diner--I ordered a Chinese noodle dish & out came Ramen noodles (yep, identical to the .15/pkg ones!)

But we have 2 other couple friends who married in Vegas (was second marriage for groom of one couple, bride of the other). They have each been married 15 & 12 years.

We were married at the a candlelight chapel too!! We were a true "Vegas wedding". We decided to do it while we were there for the weekend. We were in shorts and tshirts and sandals. LOL our families were definitely shocked when we called to tell them the next day, especially since we had only known each other 5 months. We've been married 15 years this years!

Got married in Vegas (gulp) 20 years ago! At the Circus Circus wedding chapel. Despite that we are still married! It was actually very nice although very 80's looking (which wasn't all that bad since it was 92). Had a package deal with flowers, photos and all that. About 20-25 people came and then we had the reception back in San Diego with more people.

We had a great week vacation with our wedding right in the middle. Vegas is a destination many more people will travel to as opposed to a cruise or some Caribbean island, it's not as far and more affordable. A friend just had Elvis remarry them at a vow renewal at the Chapel Of Love with about 50 guests, had a great time at that too!

my dad just got married at little church of the west a couple of weeks ago. they had some major issues with them that they were not happy about (mostly about the video package). if you need more detail, just ask!

also, my fiance and i toured 11 venues last june for our october 2013 wedding. we are currently undecided on getting married in vegas or in my home state of michigan. but i posted reviews of my tours on the vegas message board i belong to. my username is the same, so you could just look up my post by username. the type of venues we were interested in were not on the strip and were not chapels (or as i call them wedding assembly lines). also, that vegas message board has a forum for vegas weddings.

good luck!

Just got back from my sister's wedding. The Flamingo casino left a really terrible impression, but the wedding was lovely. They shut down the pool at 6 and we had a sunset ceremony in front of the waterfall. They layed out a red carpet with pillar candles along the sides and two large flower sprays. My sister and I each had rose and mum bouquets, and the groomsmen had boutineers. There were also flowers for the parents. The ceremony was about 15 minutes long, and was webcast and filmed, they received a dvd copy as well as an hour of pictures with the photographer after the ceremony. Her total cost was around $2500, but did not include hair/make up. If you would like to get your hair and make up done, my suggestion is to NOT NOT NOT use the salon in the Flamingo, it was completely craptastic. In fact, even though the rooms facing the strip had a great view, I wouldn't stay at that hotel period.

Wife and I got married in 2010 at the chapel at the las Vegas Hilton. Our package was $325 which included flowers and photos. The minister and his wife which run the chapel at the hotel are very wonderful people. It was the best time there. We had 7 guests at our wedding. Just a real relaxed nice place to ave a wedding

DH and I got married in April 2008 at the Little White Wedding Chapel. Then, our whole group went to Battista's Hole in the Wall (family style Italian restaurant) for dinner after. Everything was fantastic!
