Getting Married in Las Vegas: Tying the Knot in Style

Wedding in Las Vegas

No other city can match Las Vegas when it comes to unforgettable wedding venues.  Las Vegas is such a popular wedding destination, in fact, that in previous years one in every 20 US weddings occurred there.  Las Vegas weddings are big business, and one of the reasons for their popularity is that it is just so easy for couples to marry there!  Any couple on a tight schedule can simply head for Las Vegas, plunk down around $60 for a marriage license at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau (forget about the blood tests or the waiting period) and, if time is really short, tie the knot at a drive-through chapel.

The vast majority of couples choosing to marry in Las Vegas, however, spend a lot more time planning their ceremonies.  Most of the hotels and wedding chapels in Las Vegas offer some terrific wedding packages which cover everything beginning with a limousine ride to the Marriage License Bureau.  The price of a Las Vegas wedding ceremony can range from as little as $500 to well into five figures.

One of Las Vegas’ trademarks is its “anything goes” approach, which applies to weddings as well as everything else.  Specialty weddings in Las Vegas range from glamorous to funky, with every conceivable variation in between.  If you and your intended love the great outdoors, there are plenty of spectacular wedding venues around Red Rock Canyon with its dramatic red sandstone cliffs.  Sunset is a favorite time of day for Red Rock Canyon weddings.

If you prefer a more traditional romantic wedding, you won’t find anything better than exchanging your vows in a gondola gliding across waters of Lake Las Vegas, with up to a dozen of your family and friends.  For a more old-fashioned romance, why not plan your wedding ceremony at the Venetian Hotel where you can again be married in a gondola, this time sailing along the Hotel’s canals with your singing gondolier!

For the daredevil couple, nothing has quite the appeal as a wedding at Las Vegas’ Stratosphere.  The Stratosphere’s Roller Coaster is located on a platform 1100 feet above the Las Vegas strip.  You and your beloved exchange vows while whizzing along at 30 mph!

Finally, if you’re entering into the matrimonial state with the idea that only this guy is the limit when it comes to your happiness, why not have your ceremony performed in a helicopter soaring above the strip.

We’ve mentioned just a handful of the dazzling and unforgettable wedding possibilities in Las Vegas.  You’ll have no trouble finding a hotel or chapel wedding planner who can explain the different packages available.  You can also be certain that no matter how unusual a request you have for custom wedding in Las Vegas, there will be someone ready to fulfill it to the smallest detail!
