Wedding Reception in Las Vegas- Ideas??? Help!
My fiance and I are planning a Las Vegas wedding for August 2012. We would like a reception venue that can accommodate 65-80 people, serve heavy hors d'oeuvres instead of a sit down dinner, and will allow music. Ideally we don't want to spend more than $150 per person (alcohol included; beer and wine).
We did an event like this at the golf club Bali Hai, which is on the south strip. It's a very pretty club, with good food, and multiple rooms to chose from; additionally, most of the rooms have an outside patio. Our event (a wedding anniversary) went well. Another similar club, but not on the strip, is the Rio Secco club, which is also very pretty.
I think that the size of your group, and the live music, is going to make it difficult to find a strip restaurant to accomodate you, although I could be mistaken. I suspect you may have to look at some of the actual reception venues in LV, or potentially a non-restaurant space in a hotel. I'll keep thinking to see if any other spots come to mind...
