by Shannon Kietzman, writer for Your Wedding Place.com
Las Vegas is a popular choice for those looking to get married in a fun way. With its 24 hour service, exciting casinos, and spectacular buffets, it is little wonder so many couples are drawn to having a Las Vegas wedding. In addition, the ability to get your marriage license on the fly and to perform your nuptials in one of the quirky chapels has lead to more than 100,000 Las Vegas weddings being performed every year.
Choosing Your Las Vegas Wedding
Although most people think of silliness when they think of a Las Vegas wedding, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. In fact, it is possible to have an upscale and grand Las Vegas wedding, a low key Las Vegas wedding, or even a corny and kooky Las Vegas wedding. The choice is yours.
If you are looking for a nicer wedding chapel, you might want to look into the casinos. Casinos, particularly the higher end ones tend to offer the Las Vegas wedding chapels with the most class. The Bellagio is a popular choice for those looking for a high class Las Vegas wedding.
If you are looking for a quickie Las Vegas wedding, on the other hand, it certainly cannot be any quicker than a wedding at A Special Memory wedding chapel. Here, you can get hitched by simply cruising past the drive through window!
If you want a silly or a themed Las Vegas wedding, you definitely have many options available to you. In fact, you can be married by Elvis or have a pirate or Star Trek themed wedding. You can even tie the knot while riding on a roller coaster!
Making Plans for Your Las Vegas Wedding
Las Vegas is a popular wedding destination. Therefore, you will need to start making plans right away after you have decided you would like to get married there. After all, you don’t want to make plans only to discover your chapel of choice has already been booked. Holidays such as New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day are particularly popular. So, you should either avoid those days or make reservations well in advance. Otherwise, you will likely find yourself standing in line for a long time to get your marriage license and to get in the door of the chapel.
The nice thing about a Las Vegas wedding, however, is the fact that the rest of the plans pretty much take care of themselves after you have chosen a time and a location. If you are looking for classy, you should hire a wedding planner in the area to iron out the details for you. In addition, most of the Las Vegas wedding chapels offer packages you can choose from, leaving all of the planning to the chapel itself. Even witnesses to your wedding can be provided for you if you elope to your Las Vegas wedding.
With its “no waiting period” marriage licenses, numerous wedding chapels, and outstanding sites and fun to enjoy after the wedding is over, it is little wonder a Las Vegas wedding is a popular choice among many couples.
