Las Vegas besides being famous for gambling is also a prime location for people wanting to get married!
In fact in 2003 almost 120,000 marriages took place in Las Vegas.
In the Little White Chapel many famous people who have been married here include:
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis
It was also here that Britney Spears married her then boyfriend and it lasted just over a day!
On Valentines day some chapels perform more than 80 wedding services.
Not suggested to be an essential when visiting Las Vegas. Why not get married, or remarried, at their Graceland Wedding Chappel.
For the princely sum of $400 you can have
"Elvis" walk down the isle with you and will give you away
9 colour photos and video of the wedding.
"Elvis" singing three songs
2 silk leis, a pair of Elvis sun glasses and autographed silk scarf for the bride
a copy of elvis's marriage certificate
A photo of your Elvis
And if thats not more than enough, for a mere $140 extra you can have a hula girl attend to really round off the occassion!
We just got hitched in Vegas, and if anyone is planning on doing the same and needs a suggestion keep reading.
We got married at a place called Embassy Terrace, it's a little bit off the strip. We had about 100 people, open bar, buffet, and not to mention a very classy not-your-average-cheezy-Vegas-wedding wedding. It was really nice, the service was fantastic, and everyone was really impressed, and we paid not very much to do it.
I highly suggest it if anyone happens to be looking for a place to get married on a travel webpage, sorry, I was just so impressed, I had to sing the praises
OK so a Vegas wedding is a Vegas wedding. A word of advice, get your licence the day before so that you do not have to queue in your wedding outfit. Get married, have a meal somewhere in celebration and then get out of those things.
Well this was it, the wedding that we went for. Candlelight wedding chapel was very good. We had a full 15 minutes for the ceremony with another couple right behind us. The staff were great though and made us feel special and yes I did book Elvis for that special Vegas touch.
If you are planning a wedding in Vegas, I would suggest getting your marriage licence prior to the wedding. The licences stay good for one year from the date they are issued, and the lines at the courhouse are incredibly long on the weekends due to the flux of people wanting Vegas weddings.
If getting the certificate prior to the wedding isn't possible then I would suggest at least downloading the form and having the paper work filled out to expediate the process. All you need to present is a drivers licence, and the fee is $55.
We decided to get married in Vegas for a number of reasons, but first and foremost...it's a lot less expensive! Thanks to supply and demand we managed to get a full scale wedding with all the bells and whistles for 1/3 of what we would have paid had we decided to do it in Flagstaff. I would highly suggest it for those who are paying for the wedding themselves, and still want to have a lavish event.
We found that our guests were considering it a vacation as well, so it was never a problem trying to coordinate activities for everyone to do during their stay. There is so much to do in Vegas, and everyone had so much fun!
Looking to make the biggest mistake of your life, and tie the knot in Vegas? well Vegas is the place to make mistakes. Dont have a place to get married yet? Thats ok. When u go to get your marriage license at City Hall, u will be hounded by dozens of people insisting their chapel is the place to be. To make it easy on yourself, just take the flyers and say thanks, or they will talk to u all day...
Theres a million places to choose from. Just drive down Las Vegas blvd and pick a place out of the millions u will see...
For directions to where u can get your marriage license just go into any chapel and they all have driving directions already printed out...
Never feel pressured into choosing a chapel, its ok to say u want to shop around. By saying this u may get them to lower the price for u...
if u have any other question on getting hitched in vegas, please feel free to email me...
* Please feel free to rate this tip or any of my other tips. I am always looking to make improvements. Thank you...
Little White Wedding Chapel is one of the more famous wedding chapels in Las Vegas. Over the years, the chapel has been the site of many celebrity marriages, including the wedding of Bruce Willis & Demi Moore, Joan Collins, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jordan... and most recently, the late-night wedding of Britney Spears.
If you would like to get married while you're in Vegas, the Little White Wedding Chapel provides several different wedding packages. You can check their website for details. You can even have a drive-through wedding at their "Tunnel of Love" drive-through. If you just want to check out the chapel, you'll find it on the Strip, about 6 blocks past the Stratosphere Casino.
We got married at Chapel by the Bay in September 03. We brought our nearest and dearest, all of whom were suprised that you can have a beautiful, classy wedding in Vegas! The chapel staff were wonderful and the pictures were fantastic. I can't say enough good things about Mandalay Bay!
?ô♫ Not married yet ? Want to impress your in-laws? Well give that expensive hometown wedding a miss and fly over to Vegas and get married by 'Elvis'. ♫?ô♫?ô
?ô ♫ Or are you already married? Still, it's no harm to get a wedding renewal done here too. Never too late. ♫?ô
Although I did not get to SEE this this time around, one of the things you can do is be a witness or see a themed wedding in Vegas.
Where else but in Vegas can you see Elvis marrying off a couple?
for other themed weddings.
In addition, most of the resorts in Vegas has a wedding chapel on site. For example, at the Tropicana the theme of the chapel and gazebo reception is tropical.
Hey, how about getting married? Las Vegas is well known for quick weddings. The busiest chapel is the Candlelight Wedding Chapel at 2855 Las Vegas Blvd. Especially on Saturdays, you'll see couples lined up here, waiting to tie the knot. This is a convenient place to watch a Las Vegas wedding ceremony, just walk in and take a seat.
Everyone comes to Vegas to get married, and the Strip is inundated with wedding chapels. We stayed opposite one, THE ONE BRITNEY GOT MARRIED IN!!
There are many wedding chapels in Las Vegas -- a number line the east side of Las Vegas Blvd as you head north. Please see my travelogue for sampling of your options:)
