How-To get married in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Weddings - How to Get 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. 86,203 marriage licenses were issued in Clark County in 2012.

Marriage License Requirements

Although Nevada is pretty permissive, compared to other states, when it comes to how soon you can use your license, it still maintains a list of requirements you will need to fulfill before you can get one.

Steps to a perfect wedding

Use this guide to getting married as a reference when planning your wedding. Follow it in order and everything should be smooth sailing. Well, hopefully.

Marriage Bureau

Where should you go to apply for a license? The marriage bureau. Find out where this office is as well as its hours of operation.
