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:

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!

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.

Goin’ to the Chapel? How to Get Married in Las Vegas!

Diner Wedding in Vegas with Elvis
Once you’ve picked your Viva Las Vegas Chapel (our Main Chapel, Doo Wop Diner, or Outdoor Gazebo or Garden Chapels), it’s time for one last-minute detail! The Marriage License!

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), almost everything is done for you. (Okay, be sure to book your hotel and bring your wedding duds and wedding rings with you. There’s that.) But once you’ve arrived in Las Vegas for your wedding, you’ll need to make a trip downtown to the Clark County Marriage Bureau. If you’re renewing your vows, you won’t need a license. But if it’s a legal wedding you’re planning, you will need official documentation. On the bright side, there’s no waiting period and no blood test.

It’s generally a good idea to get your license the day before your wedding, so it’s less stressful. The Marriage Bureau keeps long hours, though, and if you plan accordingly, it may be possible to get your license the day of the ceremony, especially if you are having an evening wedding. Since the Marriage Bureau is located in exciting Downtown Las Vegas, you can even make a day of it, visiting the Mob Museum, the Neon Museum, and doing lunch or dinner at one of our kitschy new gourmet dining spots on Fremont Street or environs. There’s lots to see and do down there!

To make it even easier to get your license, 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! Your legal minister will provide you with all the information you’ll need to obtain a copy of your license to do things like name changes, etc., once you’re legally married.

Remember, if you have ANY questions or concerns about your upcoming wedding with us, call one of our patient and friendly staffers at 702-384-0771. Or visit our website at www.vivalasvegasweddings.com to chat live online. We’ll make sure every aspect of your wedding is a breeze. Viva Las Vegas!

Update: Same-Sex Marriage in Nevada/Las Vegas

Elvis weddings Las Vegas
We hope one day soon to kick up our heels with Elvis at EVERYONE’s legal Viva Las Vegas wedding!

Here’s an update on the oral arguments heard this Monday regarding same-sex marriage in Nevada. While there’s no decision yet, many in attendance were cautiously optimistic that the ban will soon be overturned. And, it does seem that most folks think that would be the right thing to do. In 2013, a survey of Nevada voters indicated that most people favor amending the state constitution to provide for legal same-sex marriage. The results of the survey showed that 57 percent favored gay marriage, and 36 percent were opposed.

The panel of judges in the 9th District Court will probably rule later this year. The 9th circuit presides over nine Western states, and most legal experts expect the panel to support the dissolution of same-sex marriage bans. It’s thought that if the panel overturns the ban in Nevada, and if no stays are granted, it could be just weeks before same-sex weddings can be performed here in Las Vegas.

A statement released by the ACLU of Nevada said, “Same-sex couples choose to marry for the same reasons as opposite-sex couples: love, family, children, community, and sharing and spending their lives together as one. We are confident that the Ninth Circuit will uphold the rule of law and equal protection for the plaintiffs in Sevcik v Sandoval and all same-sex couples. The time has come to reverse Nevada’s discriminatory definition of marriage and live up to our moniker as the Marriage Capital of the World.”

We heartily agree. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we believe in marriage. Marriage strengthens the bond and commitment between people. And we see that as only a good thing.
