How to Get Your Marriage License in Las Vegas

Vegas marriage license

If you’re getting legally married in Vegas at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, you’ll first need to go downtown to the Marriage Bureau to get your marriage license.(If you’re renewing your vows, no license is needed for that!) The Marriage Bureau in Las Vegas is located at the northwest corner of Clark Avenue and Third Street, 201 Clark Avenue. Be advised that the Marriage Bureau here accepts cash only, just so you know. Here’s the link to their website with directions on how to get there:

how to get your marriage license in Vegas
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!

For express line service at the Marriage Bureau, click on the Marriage Pre-Application on their website above. You’ll need to complete this for both parties. Print and bring these forms with you when head to the Marriage Bureau for your license. You’ll also both need your ID’s, and you both need to be there in person. Check the Marriage Bureau’s website for details on any other requirements.

It’s a good idea to get your license a day ahead of time, or the “morning of” a wedding taking place in the evening or later day. You can even make a day of it, exploring all the fantastic attractions downtown Las Vegas has to offer.

When your license is in hand, be sure to have it with you ( AND the rings!) when you arrive at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel for your wedding. 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.

For information on one of our amazing Elvis, Themed or Tradtional Wedding packages, or to ask questions about getting your marriage license in Las Vegas, give us a call at (702) 384-0771. Or you can visit us online at

Doin’ Your Las Vegas Wedding with Elvis in Our ’50s Doo Wop Diner

50s Diner Wedding Vegas
Only at Viva Las Vegas Weddings…a choice of wedding chapels, including our retro Doo Wop Diner Chapel!

Today is Pi Day–that is, 3/14–and the best place at Viva Las Vegas Weddings to look for PIE is in our fantastic retro Doo Wop Diner Chapel! (Actually, we DO have diner-themed wedding receptions here, too, but you’ll have to ask specifically for pie along with/instead of wedding cake, if you’re so inclined!)

We offer affordably fun wedding and wedding vow renewal packages in the Diner. Dress from the 1950s era is optional–but a GREAT idea. Elvis most often is the choice of minister to do the honors and sing iconic songs. By special request, though, you can opt for a Fonz impersonator minister, Lucy or Ricky, June Cleaver, or even your choice of Grease (the musical) character as cool wedding officiant. We’re always up for your ideas and suggestions, and we’ll do our best to make your personalized Doo Wop Diner Wedding happen!

Our retro Doo Wop Diner is by far the coolest spot to get married by Elvis in Vegas. You’ll step back in time, surrounded by ’50s memorabilia. The Diner jukebox has all of the old favorites, but you’ll also be entertained live by The King himself. We guarantee that Elvis singing as you’re exchanging wedding vows will be the most memorable event of your lives to date!

Package Features Include:
Ceremony Performed in The Doo Wop Diner
Elvis Sings Two Songs and Performs the Wedding Ceremony
Elvis will escort you down the aisle
Two-Rose Presentation
6 Candid Ceremony Prints (taken during the ceremony)
Elvis Certificate
Wedding Website and Wedding Invitation
Your Names In Lights on Our Marquee high above the Strip for a photo op afterwards
Wedding Planner
Wedding Coordinator
Chapel Fee
Ceremony is Limited to 15 Wedding Guests or Less
Price $345.00

For more information about Diner Weddings, or weddings in any of our other chapels by a “normal” or character minister, give us a call at 702-384-0771. Nifty!

Celebrate National Extraterrestrial Abduction Day with an Area 51-Themed Wedding in Vegas!3

Alien Wedding Las Vegas
Amy and Scott tied the knot in their pj’s after their ‘alien abduction.”

Who knew? March 20th will be National Alien Abduction Day, so what better time to elope to Vegas and do a honeymoon tour of nearby Area 51? Amy and Scott were the first to do this, wearing their pajamas and slippers to their one-of-a-species Las Vegas wedding ceremony. Like UFO’s, the wedding is not on our website “radar” but we’re happy to customize our Intergalactic Wedding with a space alien minister, green lights and fog, and all the other frills. We can even provide a strange metallic wedding bouquet…just let us know what YOU want!

Amy and Scott eloped to Vegas awhile back, just the two of them, and were wed amidst candlelight, smoke, and space-y music. Their alien minister had to use the universal translator to be understood during the vow exchange. This female creature from space had to watch the time, though, since she was due back at Area 51 to catch her ship on its way out of the galaxy. We can’t remember when we’ve ever had so much fun, or when we saw two people so very much in love. WE loved every minute and still have fond memories of this unique wedding!

Lighting the “candles of burning passion” before the mating dance of Zabevief 5

Scott and Amy exchanged lighted lollipop rings and joined in on an alien celebration dance, a ritual on the planet Zabevief 5. Hey, thank goodness the Intergalactic Wedding package includes photos and video coverage, for evidence later that it really took place!

Check out all of our themed and traditional or Elvis weddings at If you don’t find a wedding that’s quite right for you, do what Scott and Amy did, and invent your own. We’d be delighted to help.

Wishing Amy and Scott all the best wishes in the universe for a lifetime of fun and love ahead!
