Trying to plan this traditional wedding is starting to make me mad the cheapest I can find every single thing about $12,000 for a four hour party where my family just eats and leaves if I switch to the Flamingo in Las Vegas I can have 80 guests it would be $5,000 for everything and I would have a fun upbeat dance party 4 hours plus a lot of family that lives in California who wouldn't otherwise be able to come will be there and those people are most important to me just wondering if anyone else has gotten married at the Flamingo and how it went my honey proposed to me at the waterfall there and this picture is where the ceremony would be just don't know if this is the best way to go but it's sounding better and better

    No punctuation because I'm using talk to text on my phone

    plus a lot of family that lives in California who wouldn't otherwise be able to come will be there and those people are most important to me (stop)

    just wondering if anyone else has gotten married at the Flamingo and how it went (stop)

    my honey proposed to me at the waterfall there and this picture is where the ceremony would be (stop)

    just don't know if this is the best way to go but it's sounding better and better (stop)

    Misty, how is ceremony and reception being set up exactly? How is 80 ppl only $5000? This is for the ceremony and dinner/buffet what?

    I got a price of $11k for a ceremony and cocktail / hors devour reception for 2 hours at aria. For about 40 ppl. That's not including the open bar.

    I'm getting married in Vegas and it will cost about 11k for 35 people. This includes the venue (in suite), flowers, officiant, photographer, premium open bar (for 2 hours) and food stations. If you got a quote of 5k for 80 people that's a great deal depending on what's included.

    I'm getting married in Vegas at the Tropicana in their Island Chapel it's sort of a south beach themed chapel. I am paying about 5k all inclusive for about 50 people.

    When I use my talk-to-text, and say "period" or "question mark," it will add punctuation. Just a helpful idea.

    The Cosmopolitan ETA: it's 6500 for the wedding suite and then $150pp minimum for food (either in restaurant or heavy apps/station in suite)

    I'm getting married in Vegas! I'm stoked. It can be as inexpensive or expensive as you wish. But it's a total blast!

    Were getting married in Vegas at the linq. I'm not sure where we plan on having our reception but I think that's where we'll spend a big chunk of money. We went the Vegas route because it fits within our budget.

    @Jennifer they will clean but if you are doing a lot of DIY you'll want to double check about that. I'm not a crafty person and just keeping it simple.
