Lakeside Weddings and Events is Las Vegas's most charming al fresco wedding location, offering wedding garden and chapel venues, full-service wedding planning, on-site vendors, and an indoor wedding reception hall. Lakeside Weddings' outdoor wedding venue was originally comprised of 3 lakefront garden sites, Heritage Garden, Grand Garden and Royal Garden. A fourth garden area, Swan Garden, was recently added and it can accommodate up to 125 guests. Additionally, the heated, indoor banquet hall and atrium was refurbished, making it an even more attractive wedding reception site. These changes not only give bridal couples another option for their garden wedding chapel ceremony but also allow Lakeside Weddings to extend their wedding package offerings.
Favors were suppose to be placed on the chairs for guests, there wasn't suppose to be a"guests of bride side","guests of groom side" in the seating, water bottles were suppose to be be set out, so guests could grab one on their way in or way out of the ceremony. Our guest book was also suppose to be set out. We were told that we would be the last wedding party of the evening. There were two meetings between the florist and myself, during the second meeting there were small changes that were decided on and signed for. The favors were not put out, they were left in the office! I wouldn't have even known, if I didn't causally ask a friend if they liked them while we were still doing pictures (outside the gardens where the sand and palm trees are). The best man had to RUN back and collect the unopened, well labeled box. Thankfully, the restaurant where we had our reception was able to distribute them. My friends who were trying to set out my water bottles and guest book, were told they weren't allowed too! The Guest isles were completely uneven, because they weren't told to "pick a seat and not a side". The procession to walk down was not as we planned. I didn't know until guests made comments and I had seen pictures. I had a flower girl and a Jr. Bridesmaid and two every young boys that were to be sent down, boy and girl, and, boy and girl, Instead the boys were told to walk down together, & of course they went running down the isle.Not acceptable. BIG MESS, go elsewhere!

Lakeside Weddings is a Beautiful location. The food, cake, and bar service were wonderful. But the Coordinator, Felicia, is a bit of a flake. She never responded to emails, rarely returned phone calls, completely forgot details, and generally had to be proded into doing anything outside the very simplest planning. Her assistant was worse: very, very rude, completely incompetant, and unprofessional. It was a good thing that we had so many capable women in our family to make sure everything got done correctly the day of the wedding, or I don't think everything would have turned out so well. I do recommend Lakeside, but be warned about the coordinators.

Every bride and groom wants their day to be unique and special so we used Lakeside Weddings for our entire wedding. From beginning to end, from the venue to the food and flowers, Felecia made ours just that. Special. She made us feel like the most important couple she was dealing with and always made sure our questions were answered. For the approximate year that we worked with Lakeside Weddings, each day that we got closer to the wedding the more excited we became because everything was done. Lakeside was organized, clean, beautiful and friendly. The week before the wedding we met with Felecia to pay our final invoice and confirm the rest of our details. Not only did she share tears of joy with us but she also shared personal experiences of her own that made it even more incredible to work with her. Throughout the rehearsal as well as the wedding, not only us but our guests were comfortable, happy and extremely well taken care of. Needless to say, I will recommend Lakeside and especially Felecia for any event. Thank you guys for helping to make our day as perfect as it was. Jen

The woman that showed me around was pushy,bossy, and rude. I was embarrassed for my company. I quickly left that place because my wedding day is not going to be ran by a over-bearing rude woman. My day is far more important to me than the view on the lake they portray. There's a lot of outdoor wedding scenery out there girls... I went with the Grove.

I love this place. I planned my wedding in less than 2 weeks and it was perfect. Imagine what they can do for you with more time to plan. I would recommend this place to everyone I could

The 3 bad reviews MUST be old because that was not our experience at ALL! Everything was perfect! The staff was extreemly helpful & anytime we had questions, they were always answered. The day of, we never felt rushed and the coordinator was always anticipating our needs. I will definatly promote this venue to anyone thinking of getting married in Vegas.

Beautiful surroundings and friendly staff made my special day one to remember. I couldn't be happier. The service was first rate, and attentive and the team very professional. Thanks Lakeside Weddings, you made my day.

It's already been said in the reviews below on how poor this place was... save yourself the heartache on a day that comes only once, don't have it done here.

Don't let the beautiful surroundings fool you! My friend got married here, and the service was terrible! The ceremony started late and ended early, the whole wedding party was being rushed out before the pictures were even done, and things were not done that were requested by the bride and groom. They are very unhappy with the way their day went - who wouldn't be? You can't re-do it, so make sure you find somewhere else to go that will make your special day as wonderful and perfect as it should've been for my friend.

I'm glad I was able to see how weddings are performed at this place. Now I know where NOT to go when I get married. I am appauled by the way we were all treated on the day that was supposed to be my best friends most memorable day of her life...more like most horrible experience. The one hour wedding was reduced to much less when the event lady had us start 15-20 minutes late and at the end, minutes before 8, were rushed out of our room hearing a very stern "Come on Ladies, we need you outta here!" every two minutes. What kind of service was this?! They completely forgot to set out the favors we prepared for our guests and worse, when we gave the lady the guest book so she could sit it out near our guests, she told us that we never told her about a guest book and that they were NOT going to set it out now. I feel so badly that my friends had to pay so much money to have their special day rushed right through and their opportunity to take pictures at this beautiful place destroyed. Please people, don't let the beauty fool you! It's not worth it!

I Have more to say than the 250 word allotment here will allow, thus for the time being I will surmise - More will follow as my anger subsides & my thoughts begin to formulate more directly. For that "perfect" wedding day, this place should NOT be on your list. The staff is unprofessional, uncaring, and non-personable. They do not listen to your desires nor follow through The price is much too high for the rush, rush "keep the cattle moving" attitude that is received here. They have a STRICT "one hour time slot" that they don't even honor. We rented this location for the slot of 7:07pm to 8:07pm - our ceremony didn't begin until 7:25 and we were rushed out at 7:59pm - pictures couldn't even be finished. We had favors' we wanted placed on the pre-arranged chairs for our guests... They were forgotten about & never handed out. We had water we wanted to provide for our guests that we paid for & brought ourselves - but instead they chose to SELL water for a dollar a bottle and not even try to offer ours - To top it off, after an agreed dollar amount was settled upon, they added and additional fee 9 months later called "Saturday Fee" that is NOT in any of their brochures. Now, I'm finding out they want to use OUR wedding as an advertisement for their services - * I think not - I will NOT sign that waiver.
