How-To get married in Las Vegas

Getting Married in Las Vegas

What usually comes to mind for most people when someone talks about getting married in Las Vegas is a minister dressed as Elvis, a drive-thru and the sound of slot machines. However, Las Vegas weddings are not so limited.

You don't have to don a costume or move to the rhythm of a 70's song as you dance up to your minister at the front of a 'chapel' decorated with plastic flowers, while 10 other couples wait their turn behind you. Not that there's anything wrong with this scenario if you choose to go this route, but for those who don't find it appealing, rest assured that elegance is a possibility also in Las Vegas.

You can have a small and tasteful Las Vegas wedding with a few people or a royal Diana-and-Charles affair with an extra long train and a gazillion flower girls if you want. You can plan all of it yourself or you can retain the services of a wedding coordinator who will plan the glorious event for you, making sure that everything happens just the way you want it. All you would need to do is show up on the day of the event with your beloved and your marriage license. Use the following guides to help you enjoy your special day.

Las Vegas is a popular destination for wedding ceremonies. Partly because the only requirement to get married is a marriage license. In 2017, more than 1 out of every 25 marriages in the U.S. took place in Clark County in Las Vegas.
