Las Vegas is famous for many things: gambling, Elvis, nightclubs and weddings. The city’s lax marriage laws make it one of the easiest places to get married in the United States. Combine that with picturesque settings that range from man-made beaches to real life lake beds, Las Vegas is a popular place for a destination wedding. Check out these 10 venues if you’re planning your own Vegas wedding.

Treasure Island Wedding Chapel

Elvis won’t marry you at Treasure Island, but a pirate might make an appearance. Weddings at Treasure Island can be anything you’d like, from elegant but simple to elaborate and expensive. Most of the wedding packages are under $2,000 and include services and goodies such as discounted tickets to Mystere, floral and music arrangements, rose petals and champagne. A pirate delivers the rings as part of its ultimate package aboard the Song Ship, the over-sized vessel boarded in Siren’s Cove.

Mandalay Bay

Las Vegas may be in the middle of a desert, but Mandalay Bay can still host the beach wedding unlike anyone else. With six different locations to choose from for your ceremony, including the world-renowned Shark Reef and Mandalay Bay Beach, the award-winning team at Mandalay Bay can put together the wedding of your Las Vegas dreams. From flowers and music to cakes and chapel décor, Mandalay Bay has it all covered. Besides all the wedding trimmings a bride can dream of, Mandalay Bay also offers reception packages at Ri Ra Irish Pub, Border Grill or in any of the private ballrooms.

Chapel at Excalibur

For those in search of a royal wedding venue, look no further than The Chapel at Excalibur. The Chapel can host weddings for as few as 10 people and as many as 100, depending on the location you choose for your service. For the bare minimum ceremony, couples can marry inside their hotel room; for a more extravagant affair, couples can tie the knot in one of the private ballrooms. If you decide you’d like Elvis to make an appearance at your big day, the Chapel can make that happen.

Lake Mead

For the couple that prefers the outdoors, Lake Mead offers countless scenic spots to host your marriage ceremony. Local companies like Las Vegas Strip Weddings offer wedding packages at the Lake; services typically include a limo ride, flowers and photography. If you decide to go with a lake wedding, time it to exchange your vows to sunset; the mélange of purple and orange in the sky make a romantic backdrop for any destination wedding.

Another breathtaking scenic option for your destination wedding is Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area. Permits are required to hold a wedding inside Red Rock, but they can be found here. You can host your wedding at either Red Spring or the Overlook on Route 159, but there are certain restrictions on items that can be brought to the site, such as rice and balloons. Red Rock is available for weddings year-round, but plan accordingly for the weather if you plan on a summer wedding.

Eldorado Canyon Dry Lake Bed

Located 20 minutes south of Las Vegas, the Eldorado Canyon Dry Lake Bed is a popular spot to take wedding photos and host ceremonies. This choice is not ideal for the summer months because of the weather and lack of shade, but it makes for a scenic destination setting in the spring and fall. Getting married on the lake bed will require more planning and coordination on your end since you’ll have to meet your officiant out there and direct guests to your chosen location. The Eldorado Canyon Dry Lake Bed is a simple and romantic option for anyone who wants a small wedding or a more unconventional affair.

The Wedding Salons at Wynn

Another picturesque setting to exchange your vows is the Wedding Salons at the Wynn. Whether exchanging vows or renewing them, the Wynn offers a number of locations and packages for the big celebration. The Wynn offers three locations to host weddings at: the Lilac Salon, the Lavender Salon and the Primrose Courtyard. The Primrose Courtyard is an enchanting outdoor venue that seems fitting for any fairy tale. Wedding packages vary in size and prices, but all include photography services, flowers, a limo ride and limited décor.

For a fiery night filled with love and romance, host your nuptials at the Mirage’s famous volcano. Besides the volcano, couple can also exchange vows at the Mirage Pool or inside their hotel room. Wedding packages run anywhere between $1,000 for a simple reception, to $3,000 for a more elaborate ceremony (not including amenities or extra services). The waterfall and volcano locations are the most popular spots throughout the year, so if you’ve got one of those in mind, be sure to book it well in advance.
