No trip to Last Vegas would be complete without at least one “peep” at a wedding chapel ….. and how fortuitous that our hotel, The Luxor has its own chapel for ceremonies of a matrimonial type nature …. aptly named “The Chapel at Luxor”
…. And so we (foolishly) sent our very own intrepid Darrell on a fact finding wedding chapel mission, especially as he is the one who has been flirting with the idea of online dating, although as of yet, he has not encountered, as he says “….. a certain chemistry or affinity” with any of the ladies he has encountered, who might then, potentially, share his most honourable of intentions!” What is he like? Darrell was most robustly impressed, he thought it might all be very tacky in a Elvis Presley meets Dolly Parton type way …… but it was all very tasteful …… and he confessed he wouldn’t rule it out as an option, should cupids arrow strike ……if ever a matrimonial situation should arise.Darrell found out that he could get a marriage license for just $60, with no waiting period or no blood test ….. the no blood test bit was a particular nuptial relief, as Darrell is a martyr to his needle and blood letting phobia! But really, that was putting all his hens all in one basket before his eggs had hatched ……..
He also tied the grooms seat out for size …. no doubt reliving Tom and the Lovely Laura’s joyous day ….……. and pondered (in a slightly Nigel type fashion) as to whether the diamond package which he had perused with one of the Wedding Planners which included the use of the small or large chapel for one hour, the bridal room for half an hour, a bit of ambient music, a 15-rose bridal bouquet, a nine rose maid-of-honour bouquet, two boutonnieres, some photos, a video, an exclusive wedding certificate holder, a bottle of champagne and glasses and a two-night stay in Pyramid Deluxe room would be enough!!!! Oh good grief ….. what was I thinking sending him????
