Number 4 – Aria Resort & Casino Las Vegas
Aria is one of the newest hotels on the strip but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t already put itself on the marriage map since opening in December 2009 in the CityCentre complex. This modern glass structure looks more like a work of art than a hotel, it is a must stay for those ecology minded boasting to have been built specifically to reduce energy consumption. It also is a technology lover’s dream. The state of the art rooms have touch screen automatic systems which control the curtains, lights and temperature, adjusting them to the most economy friendly settings once you have left the room.
At the Aria you have six stunning options on where to say “I do”.
Firstly there is the exclusive wedding chapel which is romantic, elegant and modern. Next is the Fireside Lounge, this is designed for intimate ceremonies of up to 60 guests. Also perfect for the more intimate wedding is the Chihuly Gallery, imagine getting married surrounded by the amazing glass art of Dale Chihuly. In the North Valet front lobby is the Happy Buddha statue, an amazing backdrop for your vows. The poolside verandah is our personal favourite; this outside space is so beautiful, especially at sunset. Last but not least is in front of the iconic curved Water Wall, an amazing setting guaranteed to provide some spectacular pictures.
With 16 spectacular restaurants to hold your reception meal Aria is certainly a contender for someone looking for an amazing Las Vegas wedding experience.
Number 3 – Bellagio Resort and Casino
Situated in prime position on the Las Vegas Strip is the Bellagio. This elegant hotel is influenced by the beautiful town of Bellagio near Lake Como in Italy. The Bellagio is famous for its magnificent dancing water fountain displays in its 8 acre lake in front of the hotel.

Number 2 – The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino
On the east side of the Las Vegas strip where the Sands hotel once stood is the Venetian. This hotel brings Venice to Las Vegas with its very own replica of St Marks square. Perhaps the most famous attraction in the Venetian is the Grand Canal where you can take a romantic trip on a Gondola.

With both fine dining and casual dining available at the Venetian you are sure to find a ceremony and reception area to suit you.
