Need Idea's for where to have the Party Bus take us for 2 hours?

We have about 2 hours between the wedding and reception.  Since there is only going to be 19 people total I think I am going to have everyone one on one party bus because over half of those people are in the wedding party.  Are friend who has photography expirience will be taking some pictures.  I don't want to do the Vegas sign where are some other good photo opps?  Should I drop the remaining 8 people not in the wedding party elsewhere?

    I would say to keep the guests all together, so that the others don't feel any less important or segregated, as there are so few of them. If you have champagne / nibbles / alcohol on board then it would be fun for everyone!

    I only know of the usual photo spots - Bellago, Venetian, Fremont Street...

    Thanks Gribbles.  I am getting married at the Bellagio and I think the only other place I want to get pics at is Venetian.  Snack and drinks are a good idea.

    So what are you going to do with the rest of your time if you are only taking pictures at the Bellagio and The Venetian? Are you gonna just ride around in the bus and see the sights?

    I'm planning on doing the bus also.  Though, I was warned to NOT bring snacks on it.  We're doing the sign and Fremont Street for sure.  All of our guests are coming on the bus.

    Who warned against this, and do you know why...?

    When I was emailing the company I was told beverages are welcome (just no glass).  They even can arrange to pick up the beverages the day before and bring coolers with ice and your beverages for you on the bus.  However, they advise me against bringing snacks.  When I asked if there was a cost or a deposit required for bringing food on the bus they said, " I don't want to insult you with a figure. Please, I beg you , please - let's not go there, OK? Let's leave the (cup)cakes at home."

    To be honest, I'm a bit turned off by the way they said that.  I'm still probably going to do the bus, only because my FI is dead set on getting it.  But I would have much preferred to be able to bring cupcakes or other snacks on the bus.

    I am thinking of doing the double decker bus or a party bus for my photo tour. Imy photographer said that we should do Fremont street and the Vegas sign for pictures. I am going to try to include my guest in the pictures and hopefully they want to take their own. One of my ideas is to do a garter and flower toss on the tour.I am may provide drinks but very little at the reception their will be a open bar and a lot of food .

    My parents did a vow renewal at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel and we had a couple hours to kill in a limo before dinner at the Golden Nugget.  We didn't "go" anywhere.  We drove around and drank champagne like nobody's business.  We even did a stop at a liquor store (and bought some beef jerky and other things).

    I don't get married often, but when I do, I do it in Las Vegas.

    I don't blame you for being turned off by the way they phrased that - why not just have a no food policy rather than sounding so unprofessional?

    I am planning on putting out bowls of M&Ms in our colours, as they are Vegas-y and won't make a mess! For the amount we are paying I would hope our limo company will allow this.
