Did you know that Las Vegas in considered the “Marriage Capital of the World”? It’s true! Despite the wedding clichés the city is often associated with—reciting vows in front of an Elvis impersonator, shotgun weddings to strangers, tacky pink rooms with stained glass windows—Vegas is actually one of the best places in the country to have a wedding.
While spontaneous walk-in ceremonies and the like do happen, they’re only a small fraction of the incredible wedding offerings you can find in Sin City.
So, why should you consider getting married in the Entertainment Capital of the World?
1) So many venue choices!
If you think drive-thrus and casino chapels are your only options for a wedding in Vegas, you have a lot to learn! The city is filled with gorgeous venue options to accommodate weddings of any style.
Whether you want traditional, romantic, vintage, bohemian, minimalist, or anything else your heart desires—Vegas has something for everyone.
2) Easy booking.
One of the reasons you hear about so many impulsive Vegas weddings is because many chapels and officiants are usually available on short notice. All you need to get married is a license, which is easily obtained from the Marriage License Bureau with its extended hours, and a deposit for your venue!
There are also plenty of direct flights and accommodations to choose from for you and your guests, so you’ll never have a problem getting here or finding a place to stay.
3) Vegas weddings are much cheaper.
Traditional weddings in the U.S. can run you about $30,000 or more, on average. In Las Vegas, you can get a full ceremony and reception for just $500-600! You don’t have to sacrifice any of those extra luxuries you’ve always dreamed of either, as they’re usually available as add-ons with most packages you’ll find.
Of course, you could spend tens of thousands of dollars on a Vegas wedding—don’t get us wrong, we know how to do luxury, too—but with so many convenient and affordable options available, you’d have to work hard to go over budget!
4) Your one-stop wedding shop!
Most venues in Las Vegas have a wedding planner on hand and give you the option of having their staff handle the details of your ceremony and reception when you book! Eliminate the time and stress of planning and coordinating a huge wedding by taking advantage of one of these (often customizable) all-inclusive packages.
Plus, Vegas is the perfect place for all of your other wedding activities! What better place for your bachelor and bachelorette parties, ceremony, reception, afterparty, and honeymoon than the Entertainment Capital of the World?
