Wynn Las Vegas
Slightly removed from The Strip, the Wynn feels calm after so much neon and sensory overload. You won’t find as many revelers here. Instead, the lobby features a relaxing indoor garden and there are several tranquil water features throughout the property. The resort’s wedding venues have the same serene atmosphere with two elegant salons and the Primrose Court garden for private ceremonies. If you stress easily, let the wedding pros handle everything for you. The Elegant Affair package covers all the logistics for your stay and ceremony, including perks like a limo pickup from the airport to the courthouse so you can pick up your license.
If Vegas resorts had personalities, the Cosmopolitan would be the most popular girl in school. Always chic, the luxury resort boasts more than 30 wedding venues with avant-garde spots such as The Chelsea, an industrial-style theater, or Rose. Rabbit. Lie., a modern take on a secret dinner club. And the resort’s crown jewel, The Chandelier bar, makes a stunning backdrop for photos with crystal curtains made from two million crystal beads.
Four Seasons Las Vegas
If you’re not into gambling, the Four Seasons is the spot for you. The luxury resort is a non-gaming hotel which means you and your guests won’t have to walk through a smoke-infested casino on the way to the venue. You can dream as big as you want here. The Four Seasons says "weddings are magical" with customization of every detail for couples. Want a winter wonderland with snow? They can do that.
Inspired by the elements? Make a statement at ARIA with a dramatic water or fire backdrop. The Fireside Lounge features a gorgeous (and massive) stone fireplace that is great for ceremonies or cocktail receptions.
Just a couple miles outside of downtown, Springs Preserve features gorgeous trails and desert botanical gardens. Cactus Alley is a popular wedding spot and you won’t need to spend a lot on decor with so many beautiful plants around.
If you haven’t been to the Flamingo in a while, give it a chance. The rooms at the budget-friendly resort got a much-needed makeover and suites now feature a more modern, luxe design. The grounds have a tropical, Caribbean theme with lush landscaping and three different waterfall areas to choose from for wedding ceremonies and photography.
Red Rock Canyon
Just 17 miles away, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is a total contrast to the sights and sounds of The Strip. If you want to be off the grid with a no-fuss ceremony, there’s nothing quite like being surrounded by these beautiful, colorful structures. If you do want some glitz and glamour after your vows, it’s only a 30-minute car ride back to Vegas.
Red Rock Country Club
If you don’t want to go all the way out to Red Rock Canyon, you can still find venues with a great view. Red Rock Country Club is just 20 minutes away from The Strip and the property’s outdoor wedding venue features a gorgeous backdrop of the rocks.
The Smith Center
If your guest list is infinite, check out The Smith Center for Performing Arts. The Art Deco Building features big ballrooms and a dramatic, ritzy lobby perfect for vintage-themed weddings.
Caesars Palace might bring back Hangover flashbacks but it actually boasts some of the most sophisticated wedding venues on The Strip, such as two beautiful and private romantic gardens.
