    Smashburger
    Vegas weddings don't come Vegas-ier: One happy twosome will be married by Elvis at a Sin City Smashburger, complete with a cake made of Smashburgers. The wedding night room comes courtesy of Bally's.

    UNDERSTATED NUPTIALS: Pick up most any wedding-themed magazine or visit a Big Day-themed site and you're bound to see pages brimming with beautiful, soft hues and traditional settings and rose petals strewn everywhere.

    BUT... a Vegas wedding is very often the opposite of all that. Oh, definitely, there are some gorgeous and classy ceremonies up and down the Strip, and the strewning of rose petals, and then there are the outrageous weddings, the tying-of-knots that make headlines and serve as inspirations for wacky films. One upcoming service that shall qualify in all of the fabulous and outlandish ways is the marriage set to take place in Las Vegas Smashburger on Nov. 12, 2013. That's 11/12/13, just to save you consulting a calendar, and that is set to be a major day for creative weddings in Sin City.

    Oh, and one small detail? The marriagees have not yet been selected yet. Oh no they have not.

    WE DIDN'T EVEN GET TO ELVIS YET: The King himself, in all of his sunglassian, thank-you-very-much-y glory will preside over the Smashburger wedding. The wedding cake will be made of Smashburgers. And lunch, complete with craft beers, will be served. Plus? There's a limo. Plus? A room in the Bally's Jubilee Tower suites. Plus? Two tickets to "Jubilee," Bally's long-running, sequin-extraordinary showgirl extravaganza.

    THIS TEMPTS YOU AND YOUR  HONEY? As it should. Weddings just don't come more Vegas-y in this world, top to bottom. If you want all of this for your own Big Day, you can enter through Oct. 25. How? Create a video for Vine, YouTube, or Instagram and hashtag it #SmashWedding. Those'll be shared on Twitter and Facebook. There are other asterisks and to-knows, as you might expect, so read all the details before planning your Elvis-Vegas-burger-Bally's glittery-ketchupy nuptial-tacular.
