How to Get Your Marriage License in Vegas! (Renewing Vows? Not needed!)

Vegas marriage license
If you’re getting legally married in Las Vegas, you’ll need to go downtown to the Marriage Bureau here to get your license beforehand.(If you’re doing a wedding vow renewal, you can skip the whole thing–easy!) The Marriage Bureau in Las Vegas is located at the northwest corner of Clark Avenue and Third Street, or 201 Clark Avenue. The Marriage Bureau accepts cash only, so be prepared. See the helpful link below to find all the details and how to get there:

The Marriage Bureau—no waiting period, no blood tests. And don’t forget to bring your license to the chapel so we can make it legal!

If you want express line service at the Marriage Bureau when you arrive to get your license, click on the Marriage Pre-Application on their website above, to be completed for both parties. Print and bring these forms with you when you go to get your license. You’ll both need ID’s and you’ll both need to be present. Check the Marriage Bureau site for details on all other requirements.

Once you have your license in hand, be sure to have it with you (and your rings, of course!) upon arrival at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Wedding vow renewals won’t require a license. And remember, same-sex marriages are legal and warmly welcomed at our chapel!

Elvis wedding vegas
Even if you get married by Elvis, a licensed minister will be on hand to help your though the legal stuff at the time of your ceremony!

Your minister (even if you’re getting married by Elvis, a licensed minister will pronounce you as legally wedded for the purposes of the State of Nevada) will explain how to get copies of your marriage certificate. All of our Viva Las Vegas Weddings require a $60 cash only minister’s fee, to be paid at the time of your ceremony. The minister will take care of recording your marriage, as part of his or her services to you on your wedding day. Las Vegas wedding chapel minister services are not included in your Viva Las Vegas wedding package price.

If you’re not a U.S. resident, you can still get married in Las Vegas. Many countries will require a certified copy of the marriage certificate and as apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State. Your minister will help you with questions on how to do this. You might also get in touch with your country’s Consulate in the States to confirm what you’ll need.

For more marriage license information, call (702) 671-0600. Marriage License Bureau hours are 8 a.m. to midnight seven days a week, including holidays.

Slow Dance to “Your Song” at Your Traditional Wedding in Las Vegas

11outside first dance
If the two of you have settled on one of Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel’s elegant yet-affordable Traditional Wedding Packages, you’ll discover that most are all-inclusive, from limo transportation to pictures to flowers. Whether you get married in our enchanting Main Chapel or in one of our romantic Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels, feel free to add options that will personalize your ceremony. If you want to make your ceremony truly “your own,” we can offer many touches that will make your wedding stand apart from all others. Here are just few ideas that we’d be happy to arrange for your day:

1. Add “Your Song” to the ceremony. You bring your own music for walking down the aisle, either processional or recessional. Just let us know ahead of time. (This can be touchingly effective if it is arranged in advance as a surprise for the bride or groom. Let us know, too, if it is indeed a surprise, so we can keep it secret!) You may also add a “First Dance” to your song, so the two of you can dance during the vow exchange for the entire length of your special music. (Small additional charge for your first dance. Call ahead at +1-702-384-0771 to make arrangements for this. We’ll want to make sure it’s all set up in your paperwork before you arrive.)

Main Chapel at Viva Las Vegas
Customize your Traditional Wedding Package at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel with a first dance during the ceremony to the song of your choice!

2. Add live music. Choose a song by one of our classically trained solo singers, male or female, or add a pianist or organist to play for you. (Additional charges may apply if not already included in your package.) This addition is perfect for the lighting of candles, which you also may wish to include in your wedding.

Vegas Bridal Flowers
Choose the flowers that compliment the bride!

3. Upgrade your bridal bouquet. If your dress is formal and gorgeous, imagine gliding down the aisle with a cascade of flowers, or a bouquet of exotic blooms in colors you choose. Our talented on-site florists do custom bouquets for brides who request particular flowers and styles. Consider matching corsages for mothers and grandmothers, or pew flowers to give away to your lovely lady attendants at the end of the ceremony as a thank-you gift.

4. Consider booking extra time with our photographer. Would you like a wider selection of poses and locations to choose from? As long as you’re getting married in Las Vegas, you’ll want to capture all those memories to cherish later. Call our helpful wedding planners in advance to work out the details for giving your wedding photo coverage extended time. We’ll do all we can for your special requests.

5. Check out our website for an array of extras for your limo ride back to the hotel. Small wedding cake, souvenir glasses, champagne. There’s almost nothing we can’t do to customize your perfectly special wedding day! www.vivalasvegasweddings.com
