After you’ve booked your amazing Elvis, themed, or traditional wedding package at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (the best and most fun place to get hitched in Vegas), what’s next? Once you’ve arrived in Las Vegas and settled into your hotel, you’ll need to make a trip downtown to the Clark County Marriage Bureau. Unless you’re renewing your vows, you’ll need a license. (The good news: No waiting period, no blood test. Once you have that license, you’re good to go!)
It’s really easy to find the Marriage Bureau with your GPS navigation thingie, but cab drivers know the place well, too. (201 Clark Avenue, NW corner of 3rd Street and Clark.) We recommend getting your license the day before your wedding, so it’s less stressful. But, if you have a later afternoon or evening wedding, you should be fine getting it the morning of your ceremony.
To make it even easier, you can go online (up to 60 days ahead) to http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Depts/clerk/Services/pages/MarriageLicenses.aspx Click on the Marriage Pre-Application, to be completed for both the bride and the groom. Print and bring these forms with you to the Marriage Bureau so you can get “express lane” service when you arrive. The Bureau is open until midnight during the week, 24 hours on weekends. You’ll need $60 cash (or $65 credit card); money orders and cashier’s checks are also accepted. You’ll need to show ID (check Bureau site for details on requirements) for both parties.
Once you’ve got your license, be sure to bring it with you to the chapel at the time of your wedding. We can do the ceremony if you’ve forgotten the rings, but not if you don’t have your license in hand!
