  • The drive thru chapels and getting married by Elvis? Sorry, but that's tacky in my book.

  • Vegas is NOT all about drive through chapels and getting married by Elvis. I would know, since I was married there. It was a lovely ceremony, and the reception was an absolute blast. And guess what? If Elvis is what you want, it is not tacky, it's fun. Weddings do NOT have to be all high tone...it isn't about the flowers or the location or who performs the wedding, it is about the people getting married. If they're Elvis fanatics and want an Elvis wedding, who are you to judge them as being tacky?

  • Oh, and no, Elvis did not perform our ceremony. I didn't think of it until after.

  • Well, I didnt want Elvis to marry me or drive thru the isle...But I know there is more to Vegas weddings than Elvis and tackiness...I'm sure I could have a beautiful wedding in Vegas, I just wanted to know if it was something you would recomend others to do. No one is judging anyone--Isnt the category Just For Fun!!

  • I tottaly agree with jespeach , My friend got married in vegas and they had a blast... I feel bad for those people running around planning their wedding for years, driving themselfs crazy over details. Here's how her wedding went : they took 2 couples of friends along to vegas, they staed at the homymoon suit. upon arraival they got catalogs with dresses,tux,and next morning everything they piked out was delivered right to their room, after lunch they got dressed and whent to get married! after they drove everywere took pictures(they had a photographer) had a very fancy dinner and partyed! She said it was so much fun! and i've seen pics, they are amazing!
