Weddings, Las Vegas
Lots of people come to Las Vegas to get married. If this is something you want to do, there are a number of ways to go about it. You can have a fancy event at Bellagio, or simply stop in at the Little Church of the West any time of day.
The first step is to get a marriage license. You'll need to go to the Clark County Marriage License Bureau. It is ocated at 200 S. 3rd St., in downtown Las Vegas. PHONE: 702/455-4415. A license will cost you $50, and you'll need to provide some identification. The Bureau is open between 8 AM and midnight from Monday through Thursday and 24 hours Friday, Saturday, and holidays.
The easiest way to get married is to go to the Commissioner of Civil Marriages. You can get married there for $35.
309 S. 3rd St., Downtown Las Vegas
If you want something more traditional, try one of the many wedding chapels. These ceremonies will cost you upwards of $200, but you can rent clothes, buy flowers, have photos taken and all those traditional elements.

Fondest memory: Is when I married my husband. We were wed in June in Las Vegas at the Treasure Island Hotel. It was beautiful and a treasure to have in my heart always. I would suggest to anyone who is thinking about running of to Vegas to do it, but do it right! The Treasure Island hotel wedding chapel was stunning and they made me feel as if it WERE my day.
Laser show (downtown), all the usual stuff like the pirate show, dragon fight you know!
Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Las Vegas would have to be its were i got married and spent my honeymoon.

See the light show at the Bellagio at night - in front of the Hotel.
Also, the pirate show in front of Treasure Island is well worth waiting for - even for the very jaded!
Fondest memory: Getting married in the chapel at the Excalibur, complete with Medieval costumes and dinner fit for a king afterward.

Lizzie with a 'beaming' smile (just got married).
This is our Stretched Limo & driver 'Wolf'.
Even when we booked our wedding a couple of days earlier, they insisted on driving us back to the Luxor (WE DON'T GET THAT IN THE UK !!!!).
Fondest memory: 'THANKS LITTLE WHITE CHAPEL FOR A FANTASTIC DAY'
Go to the Courthouse, which is Downtown near Freemont St., to get a Marriage Licence (takes 5 mins & £25), walk up to the famous Little White Chapel to book your Wedding.
We booked it for 9am, as the temperature is slightly cooler then.
We had a gleaming white Stretched Limo collect us from the Luxor & take us to the chapel. The ceremony was a simple but very moving one.
Photos & a video were taken (remember to ask for a British video).
Driven back to the Luxor in Limo where we spent the rest of the day by the swimming pool.
All this for about £160, can't be bad.
Anybody else wishing to get married this way, & I'd recommend it, contact me if you want more details.
p.s. don't forget to tip the Minister & Limo Driver.
Well we decided to get married in Vegas this year...we didn't rush into it. Last december we decided to do so because we didn't like to have a traditional wedding and being in the spotlight allday.
We arranged it al through the website and e-mail with the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel.
What documents do you need ?
1) Get a marriage license see all info you may need on this offical website.
2) Find a chapel where you want to get married, we did it at this wedding chapel.
3) After this let your marriage license be certified at the same place you got it in the first place, named under point 1.
4) Then go to the recorder office where you can get the documents to make your marriage official in your own country.
Fondest memory: For the Netherlands you will need a certified copy of your marriage certificate and an apostille. You can also order these documents by mail or the internet but we just went to the office because it is close to the license bureau. It will save some time.
Probably you won't be able to get these document during your stay, in that case they will mail it to your home adress.
