I strongly recommend the FORUM section-they have posts about everything and everywhere you could imagine and you can POST your own once your account is validated..

I wish I had found this website BEFORE our wedding in Las Vegas! The girls on there seem to get back to you or offer really encouraging responses really quickly too! (Just like on here!)

For the brides who already got married Destination Wedding style like myself, there are forums to post a review and forums for Honeymoons (even if you aren't a Destination Wedding Bride) definately worth checking out!!!!!

Other websites I found helpful during planning process was:
www.tripadvisor.com
www.weddingwire.com
www.weddingmapper.com

US in Vegas =D

My friend asked me what there was to do in Vegas other than shows...(even though a couple relatives are going to see Dane Cook and Chris Angel) I sent her a long list...then I thought about all the Las Vegas brides that might be interested in the list..as well as the girls that are going to Vegas for their honeymoons or just to visit =D So here is a long list of Vegas activities =D

FREE THINGS TO DO:

NOT FREE, BUT CHEAP THINGS TO DO-scroll down the screen a little ways:
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/

Things that Jake and I did from that list:

*The Auto Collections at the Imperial Palace-boring, but Jake seemed to like it (There was supposed to be a car that belonged to Elvis in there, but we couldn't find it) We found a coupon in some book in our hotel or some shit-buy one get one free admission
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/autocollection.html

*Shark Reef-obviously I loved this! And we got to see the World Poker Tournament in 2007 going on in Mandalay Bay after we were done so I was SUPER excited about that!
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/sharkreef.html

*Eiffel Tower-at the Paris (have to see the Bellagio Fountains from up there!)
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/eiffeltower.html

*Stratosphere Tower-It's going to be free for everyone this time cause we're getting married at the Top! =D
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/stratospheretower.html

*Madame Tussauds Interactive Wax Attraction-I don't know why, but posing with wax famous people was so much fun so we're going back! =P
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/tussauds.html

*Jake's Machine Gun experience =P Cab ride was more than the damn gun thing, but I know a few of them plan on going to do this (my dad definitely wants to)
http://www.lasvegasgunrange.net/lasvegasgunrange.net/Range_Rentals.html

*Gondola Ride at the Venetian-you have to wait in a short line (even shorter if you go on the outdoor one)
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/gondola.html

*The Roller Coaster at New York-New York-I don't know who will ride this with me now Jake hates rollercoasters..
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/manhattanexpress.html

*Speed-The Ride at the Sahara
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on_the_strip/speedtheride.html

Another cool page to check out: http://www.vegas.com/traveltips/

There are Malls too if you feel like shopping! http://www.vegas.com/shopping/

The Miracle Mile one (Planet Hollywood) has the most affordable stores in it
http://www.vegas.com/shopping/mm_floorplan.html

but of course it would be nice to have unlimited funds to go shopping at Caesars Forum Shops (it's still beautiful just to walk around there!)
http://www.vegas.com/shopping/fs_floorplan.html

and same with Venetian
http://www.vegas.com/shopping/cs_floorplan.html

There is an outlet Center, but I have no idea how far from the strip it is http://www.vegas.com/shopping/lasvegasoutlet_floorplan.html

My cousin Hailey is going to shit herself....hope she has been saving her money =D

Here is the nightlife page: http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/

I can't really see myself paying $50 per person and standing in a line half the day and night and dressing like a Lindsey Lohan to get into the Ghost Bar at the Palms...even though it would be soooo cool just to see it once...but I really think the bars I would like to go to would be more,
Coyote Ugly http://www.vegas.com/nightclubs/coyote/
The Bar at the Times Square http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/timessquare.html
Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/margaritaville.html
Toby Keith's I Love This Bar http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/tobykeiths.html
Dick's Last Resort http://www.vegas.com/nightlife/bars/dickslastresort.html

The shows and concerts that people RAVE about and will ASK YOU CONSTANTLY ABOUT when you get home which ones you went to...hahahaha
http://www.vegas.com/shows/ we didn't go to any last time and we still had THE BEST TIME, but apparently it is the thing to do when you go to Las Vegas =D

You know other than gamble of course =D

Oh yea and lets not forget about a certain wedding on Tuesday, May 26th at 7:30 p.m.!!! Actually you might want to leave early-it takes a while to get from mid-strip to the Stratosphere, because you have to be there by 7:15 p.m. (they don't screw around with their times either since our ceremony is like 7 minutes long haha) but we do get free observation deck passes included with our package =D

So I think that about covers Las Vegas in a nutshell.....oh and here is the Flamingo pool too http://www.flamingolasvegas.com/casinos/flamingo-las-vegas/casino-misc/pool-detail.html

COUPONS!
