Million Dollar Las Vegas Gondola Wedding. This is one of my favorites. Rumors have it, that a Las Vegas millionaire has given several happy couples very nice wedding presents at a certain casino. The story goes that the couple is getting married on a gondola at the Venetian Hotel. An older man approaches the Bride and Groom and asks if he can be the best man. The lucky couples who agree to his request are later asked to be the guest of their “best man” for the weekend. He sets them up with a beautiful room at the Venetian and when they get to their room, they find $50,000 to $200,000 dollars stuffed between the sheets of the bed.
