Is Vegas more fun on the weekend

Hi everyone..., Im getting married next year in Las Vegas.... I know most venues are cheaper on week days versus the weekend so saving a couple hundered dollars would be great BUT I still want my guest to have fun... My question: Is there anything fun to do on the weekdays or is the weekend better? Or does it matter?

Vegas is fun no matter what day you are there. On the weekends there is definately ALOT more people there, which leads to everything getting a bit more crazy, and more things being opened for the public, but don't worry there will be plenty to see/do on a weekday as well.

There are many benefits to smaller crowds during the week, more space at the low limit gaming tables, more chairs around the pools and shorter line ups everywhere. Don t worry there is still enough people there to enjoy your time there.

In my experience the only significant difference is that there might be a smaller number of the nightclubs open during the week compared to the weekend.

Weekdays are better in my view - less expensive, quieter with shorter lines etc.

Weekends the town is much more crowded, thus things like bars and clubs are much more crowded.

In my mind weekends are the best party scene, whether or not that translates to 'more fun' is up to the individual.

The only thing that you won't find during the week are some one-time concerts. Madonna might only perform at the Arena on Saturday night. But you are bringing your own event with you, and don't need her.

Seriously, the price difference in hotel rates between Fri/Sat and Sun/Mon can be quite substanitial. And might be a determining factor which would allow some of your guests to attend. For that reason alone I would avoid the weekend if possible.

I personally like the weekdays as I'm less likely to have to wait in long lines for restaurants and such, and there is less competition to play the machines I like. The weekends are definitely more lively, but I've never found the weekdays to be dull or too slow.

I'm always surprised at how busy Vegas is, no matter the day of the week or time of year. If I was in your position, I'd choose weekdays. I don't think it would effect your fun.
