So we're eloping to Vegas; what shouldn't we miss while there?

As a follow up to this question
, The Dark Princess and I have now planned to get hitched in Vegas in September.
We're currently planning to see the Grand Canyon and perhaps Hoover Dam but what else can you folks recommend that we do while out there? We intend to be in the area for almost a week, with The Big Day smack in the middle to insure we're over the jetlag.
While in Vegas we're going to see a couple of shows and just walk/gawk about the strip. We can gamble in London if we were inclined so we're looking for tips on how to best use our time doing things we can't do in Europe.
We're not interested in taking internal US flights (hassle factor, in fact we're flying direct to Vegas from London to avoid as much TSA BS as possible), so hopping over to LA / SF isn't really an option, especially so as we've got limited time and want to minimise driving. But recommendations for anything in the general vicinity of Vegas would be welcome.
Many thanks for your help!!
