When it comes to planning a destination wedding, few places can rival the allure and excitement of Las Vegas. It truly is the birthplace of destination weddings. But when you think of what started it all (elopements and little drive-thru chapels) you may have to reframe your imagination a bit. Within this glittering city of lights, the Wynn Las Vegas stands out as a top choice for couples seeking an unforgettable wedding experience that doesn’t include a drive-thru or Elvis impersonators. With its world-class amenities, luxurious accommodations, and impeccable service, the Wynn Las Vegas offers a dreamy backdrop for couples to say “I do” which is far from the cliché wedding that may come to mind. 

The Wedding Salons at Wynn Las Vegas 

Whether you dream of a traditional ceremony or a unique, personalized affair, The Wedding Salons at Wynn Las Vegas offers a variety of packages with a variety of backdrops. Each dedicated space provides an enchanting setting for your special day, with its lush floral arrangements, tasteful décor, and an experienced team of wedding planners to ensure every detail suits your personal vision. From intimate gatherings to lavish celebrations, you can customize your wedding to reflect your love story. Everything from intimate small groups of 20 to hundreds of guests can be accommodated. Although the resort and operation are large, they only allow one ceremony at a time (unlike many other properties in Vegas). According to Erica Kyles-Pauley, Director at The Wedding Salons, focusing on one couple at a time is key. “We want our couples to feel like it’s exclusively their day and we strive to exceed their expectations in every way.”

Spaces include two different salons – The Lilac and The Lavender Salons as well as Primrose Court. The two salons are similar in design and feel — with soft lighting and neutral color palettes and can accommodate anywhere from 60-120 guests. The stand-out for us was the Primrose Court. This outdoor space feels a world away, but it is tucked into the heart of Las Vegas. A lush courtyard filled with tropical plants, soothing water fountains and soaring palm trees, the Primrose Court can accommodate up to 100 guests for a seated ceremony. 

Larger events can be expanded into the resort’s ballrooms or restaurants and their sister property — Encore, is also an option.

Luxury Accommodations in Las Vegas

Your guests will be treated to a world of luxury at the Wynn Las Vegas. The resort boasts an array of opulent room and suite options, each thoughtfully designed with modern amenities and awe-inspiring views of the Las Vegas Strip. From the moment your guests arrive, they will be enveloped in comfort and sophistication, setting the stage for an unforgettable wedding weekend. Our suggestion: stay in the Tower Suites where you’ll be impressed by the number of amenities and VIP feel of the space. With its own check-in desk, separate entrance and private pool deck and cabanas as well as add-ons like a daily breakfast credit and tea and coffee service, you’ll feel like one of Vegas’ elite.

Culinary Delights

There is no end to the wonderful culinary options at Wynn Las Vegas. For pre and post-wedding festivities, you and your guests can indulge in gourmet cuisine crafted by world-renowned chefs. Whether you envision a rehearsal dinner at the intimate SW Steakhouse or a relaxed brunch at Terrace Pointe Café, the resort offers diverse dining experiences to please every palate. And, of course, don’t miss the chance to savor a slice of wedding cake artfully created by the talented pastry team at Wynn – it’s sure to be a delectable masterpiece.

Vibrant Las Vegas Nightlife

After the wedding celebrations, your guests can continue the party at the resort’s exciting nightlife venues. XS Nightclub is one of Vegas’ hottest spots, featuring world-class DJs, stylish interiors, and an electric atmosphere. One of our favorites is Delilah. This modern-day supper club feels like a glimpse into a bygone era. With craft-made cocktails at their bar, food you’ll swoon over and entertainers performing nightly, you’ll get a feel for what old Vegas was like. Whether you’re into dancing the night away or sipping cocktails in a chic lounge, Wynn Las Vegas offers nightlife options that keep the celebration going.
