If you simply can’t wait to start spending the rest of your life with your bride or groom to be — and who wouldn’t — Las Vegas is the picture-perfect wedding destination for you.
In many cities across the country, waiting times are longer than usual to make nuptials official — but that’s not the case in Las Vegas! This is the Wedding Capital of the World, where approximately 75,000 happy couples tie the knot each year.
The destination not only offers a fast track to a marriage license, but also countless other advantages that will make planning your special day effortless and stress-free.
Experiencing long wait times at your local marriage license bureau? Over 150 licenses are issued each day at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau, which is open seven days a week (8 a.m. to midnight) — even on all holidays! Also, there are no blood tests or waiting-period requirements to get hitched in Las Vegas. You simply must be at least 18 years old and have the $77 license fees (credit or debit only). Oh, and being a Nevada resident is also not required!
A quick drive around town gives you a good idea of the endless venue options Las Vegas offers to-be newlyweds. Nearly every major resort has their own chapel (many with more than one option), and many of the restaurants, event spaces and room suites can double as unique, only-Vegas venues.
In addition to resorts, there are the many chapels dotting Las Vegas Boulevard and Downtown Las Vegas. And beyond the Strip and Downtown, the greater Las Vegas Valley has hundreds of locations perfectly suited for your special day including a “beachside” option out at Lake Las Vegas.
A never-ending list of potential venues offers scheduling advantages, as well, so celebrate the date you desire. There is plenty of availability in Las Vegas — all seven days of the week — which means there’s no need to budge on that special day you have picked out.
While many venues will require advanced reservations, several offer same-day/walk-up wedding ceremonies.
