Are you planning a wedding? A bachelor or bachelorette party? More and more wedding parties are on the move. I just returned from Las Vegas, where I saw both bachelor and bachelorette parties out celebrating, I would say more but…what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! I also saw, several wedding parties at the Venetian Hotel, where they were taking advantage of the Gondola rides at St Marks Square – part of the Venetian Hotel complex. They were then off to one of the many award winning restaurants now in LasVegas.
