Hi everyone, My fiance and I plan on getting married next October, in 2013. Has anyone gotten married in October and if so do you have any advice or good ideas? I have no clue as to how even to get started.

My sister is getting married in two weeks at the Flamingo Hilton. She got a package where the ceremony is at sunset and she walks out from behind a waterfall at the Flamingo Pool. Each hotel on the strip has their own wedding chapel, I suggest going to each hotel's website and clicking on the "weddings" tab. It gives you a price idea and a description of each package. You can also sign up to have information sent to you. For $1500 my sister's package includes the area, the officiant, her bouquet, a flower for me (MOH) and the groom's boutineer. She also gets two large flower sprays for decoration and an hour with the photographer before the wedding with a photo package included. I'll let you know how it all goes when I get back from there.

You can get so much more wedding for your money in Vegas, and it doesn't have to be cheesy at all. I think the Flamingo is lovely, but of all of the ones I looked at I would go with the garden chapel at the Tropicana, I thought it was prettier.

My husband and I did this, too. It was a GORGEOUS wedding, especially for the money! Everything was taken care of for us, we just told them what we wanted. Not only did we get a beautiful wedding, we got a great honeymoon, too! And we did get married in October, our anniversary is this Friday. It was good weather, not too hot or too cold. Also, my MIL got us a good deal with a travel agent for a group of 20. We got 3days 2 nights at the Flamingo, and the round trip tickets for around $400. People still talk about what an awesome, memorable wedding we had! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding! SO WORTH IT!

 Thank you for all the wonderful advice. I'm going to check some websites out. I like the idea of having someone else do all the planning.
