In Las Vegas, there are few things more impressive than the Fountains of Bellagio, and this venue gives you an up-close-and-personal view of the famous attraction. At the Hyde Bellagio, you’ll have private use of an outdoor terrace overlooking the fountains — time your “I Do’s” to align with a fountain show for a truly magical moment. You can also get married on a waterfront terrace or in the Bellagio Fountain Courtyard, which has a view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
New York-New York Hotel & Casino
This urban chic venue offers a little slice of “The Big Apple” in Las Vegas. While getting married on the actual Brooklyn Bridge might be out of the question for you, it’s totally doable at New York-New York. The hotel has its own life-size replica of the famous NYC bridge, which is available for private rentals (that means no tourists walking through your wedding photos!). New York-New York is a Manhattanite’s paradise — the hotel also has a replica of the Statue of Liberty, a Greenwich Village area complete with sidewalk cafés and boutique storefronts, and various New York-style pubs. For an especially memorable wedding, your ceremony can take place right before a performance of the hotel’s Cirque du Soleil show.
