Why Should You Get Married In Las Vegas?
January 28, 2018
Las Vegas is by far the most popular wedding destination in the United States (and perhaps the world). Over 115,000 weddings are held in Las Vegas every year, and it’s a perfect place for couples and celebrities who want to get married quickly and/or unusually.
Las Vegas weddings have the following advantages:
It’s affordable. Vegas weddings can cost less than traditional wedding ceremonies.
It can be held on very short notice. Most chapels in Las Vegas allow couples to book their wedding right away. Others accommodate walk-ins. But make sure you have a marriage license first, available from the Marriage Bureau, Las Vegas, Nevada which is located at 200 S. 3rd Street, 1st floor Las Vegas, NV 89155-1603 (cost at time of writing was $55).
It’s convenient. Las Vegas hotels usually have their own wedding chapels with a wedding coordinator who takes charge of all the preparations, including the flowers, music and marriage celebrant/officiant and can get in touch with the bridal party on the phone or even online.
It’s fun. Vegas weddings offer couples a fun and amusing wedding – even with an Elvis impersonator!
It allows couples to start their honeymoon early. There’s no need for couples to board a plan and head out of town after the wedding. Las Vegas is a great honeymoon destination!
