Sometimes couples come to Las Vegas for a spur-of-the-moment Vegas wedding. Other times they’re eloping and just something quick, easy and simple. At Viva Las Vegas Weddings, we’ve got you covered for last-minute ceremonies, which are often romantic and heartfelt, even if brides and grooms are just wearing jeans or shorts. It’s no surprise to us that many folks prefer the come-as-you-are simplicity of a Las Vegas wedding.
Here’s what you need to know, if this is your plan! First, you’ll need to go to the Marriage Bureau for a license. (Instructions included below.) It’s helpful if you call us or swing by the chapel (which is on the way!) to reserve a time slot. Let us know what you absolutely must have as part of your wedding. We offer simple packages with flowers and photography (and even Elvis) for under $300, but if you don’t need all that’s included, we will work with you to fit your budget and wishes. Weekdays are best for a walk-in Vegas wedding, since you’ll have a better selection of available times.
For our most basic packages that still have all the frills, go to www.vivalasvegasweddings.com and look at our drop down menu for Traditional or Elvis Weddings, looking at the most affordable weddings on the top of each list.
Most walk-in Vegas weddings are come-as-you-are, but you can always rent costumes from our costume rental shop very reasonably. There’s nothing to pack, and it makes your ceremony twice the fun! Arrange your last-minute wedding a la carte style with just the options that make your Las Vegas wedding right for YOU.
Below are instructions for getting your marriage license in Vegas. Fill out online forms ahead to make it even quicker and easier once you arrive in Vegas!
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!
