Congratulations! You and your beloved have decided to tie the knot. And as you plan your wedding, you already know that “settling” is not in your vocabulary. Read on to find six of the countless reasons why Vegas is the best destination for your wedding.
Ideal Year-Round Weather for Weddings
Las Vegas is one of the sunniest destinations in the U.S., and downpours only happen once or twice a year. So you can focus on the finishing touches of your wedding look, rather than checking the weather forecast.
Peak months for vacations and weddings are 10 months a year, which means that here, you can have that fairytale spring wedding or an autumn affair. While weather in December through February is mild and snowfall is rare, nights get cold enough to make the right conditions for a winter wonderland-themed wedding. During the spring months, there are gorgeous blossoms all around the city and the desert that will add an extra pop to your portraits.
Dream Big in Vegas
The list of gorgeous venue options for you to choose from for your day is almost infinite. With a Las Vegas wedding, you can be unconventional, go all out, or have the intimate experience you’ve always dreamt of.
Take, for example, the Juno Garden of Caesars Palace –fit for royalty, with beautiful architecture and romantic garden features. If you prefer an indoor ceremony, the adorable Graceland Wedding Chapel is not only the most photographed building in Vegas, it's the oldest wedding chapel, too. Or imagine gliding through the Grand Canal at The Venetian Las Vegas on an ornate gondola. At the Silverton Casino Hotel, you can have a mermaid as your bridesmaid as you exchange your “I dos” in an underwater wedding.

Don’t Sweat the Marriage License Stuff
More than 77,000 marriages happen in Las Vegas each year, making it the Wedding Capital of the World. This is partly because Clark County makes it so convenient to get a license. Plus, there’s no required waiting time, so you can head to the altar soon as you have your license! You can visit the Clark County Marriage License Bureau or call 702-671-0600 for more information.

The Entertainment Capital of the World: Wedding Edition
Taking advantage of all that Vegas has to offer does not have to end with your nuptials. If you’re thrill-seekers, commemorate your leap of faith by riding the rollercoasters at the Adventuredome Indoor Theme Park at Circus Circus or zip across The LINQ Promenade on the Fly LINQ Zipline Las Vegas. Ready to be entertained? Choose from stellar residency shows at venues like Dolby Live at Park MGM and The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Dance the night away at a DJ set at Resorts World Las Vegas or the Electra Cocktail Club in the heart of the Palazzo at The Venetian Resort. Trade your wedding attire for a jersey and watch a Vegas Golden Knights hockey game at the T-Mobile Arena or dive into the pool party happening year-round at Stadium Swim at Circa Resort & Casino.

Ease of Travel for You and Your Guests
Often, one of the biggest headaches of wedding planning is travel. Fortunately, in Vegas, getting around is effortless and affordable.
Harry Reid International Airport is minutes away from anywhere in Las Vegas, and rideshare and taxi rides are readily available. It’s one of the most walkable large cities in the U.S., but when you’re in a hurry to get to the chapel or to squeeze in a bit of sightseeing, the Las Vegas Monorail is an easy and fun option. There’s also Las Vegas Deuce on the Strip, a double-decker bus that runs locals and guests along the Strip 24 hours a day.
Food and Drink Options Aplenty
Las Vegas is synonymous with world-class food and drinks and your wedding is an opportunity to take advantage of all the incredible restaurants that the city has to offer Bardot Brasserie at ARIA features iconic French comfort food and a wide array of wines. For some vintage glamour and plenty of private dining rooms, book dinner at Michael’s Gourmet Room at South Point. An evening at Park on Fremont will include views of the bright and bustling downtown from a comfortable patio or an intimate dining experience indoors, surrounded by eclectic art.
