Get Your Marriage License at the Las Vegas Airport! (This week only!)

Gangster Themed Wedding Vegas
In Sin City, we have “our ways” to get you hitched with ease! Seen here, our Gangster Themed Wedding–where you can add your own Roaring ’20s style!

Only in Las Vegas! If you’re getting married in Las Vegas this week—for Valentine’s Day or Mardi Gras, you can visit the new pop-up marriage license office, greeting travelers at McCarran International Airport. The kiosk is located right in baggage claim! The Clark County Clerk’s Office will keep the office open from Feb. 9th to 17th to help alleviate holiday wedding traffic in the downtown Marriage Bureau. Besides Valentine’s Day weddings, there are also President’s Day and Chinese New Year weddings, plus Mardi Gras, masquerade style weddings.. “The days around Valentine’s Day and the Presidents’ Day weekend are always some of our busiest,” according to County Clerk Lynn Goya. The pop-up Marriage Bureau is located in the baggage claim area in Terminal 1. It’s open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through the end of the week. More here, from our local newspaper:

For any legal wedding (same-sex legal weddings are welcome here, too!) in Las Vegas, you will need a marriage license from the State of Nevada. There is no waiting period or blood test. The Marriage Bureau downtown is open from 8:00 a.m. until midnight every day of the year, including Sundays and holidays, for those who will be marrying after the airport kiosk closes. The Marriage Bureau is located at 201 Clark Ave Las Vegas, NV 89101. It’s within easy walking distance of the Golden Nugget and the Fremont Street Experience, in downtown Las Vegas.

The license fee is $77, and both parties must be present to obtain license. (Cash is best, since credit cards are not accepted.) If either party is divorced, you’ll need to provide the date, city and state of the most recent divorce.

The fastest and easiest way to get your marriage license at the kiosk or Downtown is to go to their website and pre-register online at: Click “Marriage Application” in the top right corner.

Traditional Vegas Wedding
Weddings can be big and complicated, but at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, most all the work is done for you!

Remember to bring your marriage license with you when you come to the chapel to get married. The minister will sign it and file it with the Clark County Clerk’s office within 10 days of the wedding. The Marriage Bureau will provide you with information on how to get certified copies of your marriage certificate after the wedding. You have one year from the date of issue of the Marriage License to have a licensed minister in the State of Nevada perform the wedding. And, DON’T FORGET THE RINGS!

We are really looking forward to a fun and busy week of weddings here at Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel! Let us know if there’s anything we can do to make YOUR wedding arrangements easier and more streamlined. Our staffers await your questions and calls with a smile at 702-384-0771.

5 Las Vegas Weddings You Won’t Find on Our Website!

Indiana Jones wedding in Vegas
We can create your favorite movie themed wedding for you by request!

Viva Las Vegas Weddings offers a wide range of Themed Weddings, from minister impersonators of music icons, movie icons, and even TV and film superheroes. But, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, just ask! Our Viva Las Vegas Themed Weddings motto is, after all, “If you can dream it, we can theme it!”

Themed weddings that we customize for you will include all the extras and frills that our website’s themed weddings offer. Round trip limo service, theatrical fog and smoke, just the right musical accompaniment, flowers, photography…There may be an extra charge if you add a cast of characters. Or, you can just come as the characters yourselves!

Above, the wedding party came all rehearsed with choreography from the movie “Grease.” We’ve done this theme by request with a Danny minister, or with Principal McGee in our fabulous 50s Doo Wop Diner Chapel!

Our Princess Bride wedding, once a special custom request, has officially made its way to our website because it was so popular…But we’ll still include it here, just so you can get an idea of what to expect. Remember, when you choose a movie or TV theme, your minister can be any character you like. We’ve had “Joker” ministers, “Gomez Addams” ministers, and even Clyde from Bonnie and Clyde!

Sometimes requested weddings themes are completely original! We’ve had an all-Viking themed wedding, weddings based around a favorite sports team, and, above, a request for a “Pimps and Ho’s” themed wedding! Our staffers will work with you to arrange the music and characters you need to really put on a show—YOUR one-of-a-kind Vegas wedding. (Okay, we’ll say it here: Don’t forget to add live streaming internet coverage if you go all out for a spectacularly unique Vegas wedding ceremony!)

Jessica Rabbit wedding? You got it. See above. We’ve also done Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, and any number of fantasy themed weddings or wedding vow renewals. Surprise us with YOUR idea!

For more information on how to book a wedding that you may not even see on our website, call us to chat at Viva Las Vegas Weddings, 702-384-0771. We can’t wait to hear what you have in mind! 🙂

What’s the latest addition to the lobby of our world-famous Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel? We now offer a wide selection of light beverages, including beer and wine. Your guests can enjoy a sip or two while waiting for the couple to have their brief “rehearsal” in the chapel. It’s also a “spirited” way for couples to celebrate and take the edge off any pre-wedding jitters. For brides and grooms who are eloping, you can choose to toast your future before the vows are said in our Main Chapel or in our Garden or Gazebo Chapels, just outside.

Little Sinatra can host your wedding reception in any of our fabulous reception halls, right onsite!

We also offer a hosted bar either before or after your ceremony. You and your guests can share drinks and mingle in a more private setting, either in one of our intimate reception rooms or at our spacious and spectacular Event Center bar.

Dancing During Your Viva Las Vegas Wedding

Las Vegas Wedding Marquee Lights
Taking a dip beneath our marquee, where your names will be up in lights on the Strip after your wedding ceremony!

So maybe you’re coming to Las Vegas to elope, to renew wedding vows, or to have a full-on Traditional Wedding that’s both affordable and unforgettable. In any case, you may want to dance during your ceremony, to make it truly your own, and truly romantic. (And, if you’re not having a reception afterward, you’ll still get to do your “First Dance!) For couples who want to add a reception with us, you can dance there, too, with dance floor and DJ!

If you’re having an Elvis wedding, you have the opportunity to slow dance to whatever songs are included in your package. This may be “Love Me Tender” or “Can’t Help Fallin’ in Love” and/or “It’s Now or Never.” Many couples simply sway in each others arms as Elvis serenades them. (Don’t worry, if you don’t want to dance, just hold each other’s hands and enjoy the performance!) But if you’d like to spice things up a bit and wow your guests (either the in-person ones, or those who may be watching the ceremony streamed live online), consider learning a couple of impressive but simple moves! See the GREAT instructional video, below:

After a few minutes of practice, you’ll be set for the big day!

If you’re having a Traditional Wedding–no Elvis–you can still choose to do a “First Dance” during your ceremony, and you can even select your own music. Just let our staffers know what you have in mind when you call to book your wedding, and they’ll explain all the details. They may ask you to bring your own CD, or they can arrange to have our crew cue it up for you via iTunes.

Did you know you can add a LIVE singer to perform your wedding song? We have several professional vocalists on hand–that is, besides Elvis, Tom Jones, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Jim Morrison…–who can sing just for you. Choose a lovely soprano or handsome baritone or tenor to perform in stunning formal wear as you say your vows and move as one. Upgrade prices begin at $150, which is a bargain when you consider how perfectly it customizes your wedding and amazes your guests. Imagine the two of you slow-dancing by candlelight to your favorite romantic ballad. You can even add theatrical fog! We will customize your dance and pull out all the stops, at your request.

For more information on adding a wedding dance or a song of your choice, call our friendly wedding planners at 702-384-0771, or chat with us online at

Gazebo Wedding Vegas
Dance during your wedding ceremony either in our Main Chapel or our Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels!
