The brash and the bizarre, the bold and the beautiful; in a city of no limits, your wedding day certainly has no restrictions. With more than 80,000 marriage licenses issued here each year, getting wed in Las Vegas is easy in this amazingly accepting and vibrant city. The only requirements are that you’re at least 18 years of age, you’re not already married (cheeky!) and you’re not planning to get hitched to your relative (weird!). Little white chapels or elegant hotels, rose petals or rhinestones, string quartets or Elvis impersonators, your wedding will be unique to you. Here’s a few of our favourite Vegas venues for your special day, each with a long list of celebrities that have married here too. We’d discuss the divorce list, but we’re not sure we’d have enough space…
Terrazza di Sogno at Bellagio Resort and Casino
With white-washed Tuscan architecture, fragrant vines and a backdrop of the iconic Bellagio fountains, the Terrazza di Sogno, translating to Dream Terrace in Italian, is a spectacular setting for your special day. Sunset ceremonies are unsurprisingly popular here, as the amber glow of the sun falls across the fountain lights and glistening lake, and onto your private spot of the terrace. Up to 34 guests can join you as you tie the knot, and those that can’t make it can still witness your union with live web casting available. Choose one of the resort packages that may include professional harpists, dinner receptions, chilled Champagne and white petal walkways, or add your own personal touches like specially selected bridal bouquets and couples’ spa treatments to calm those pre-wedding nerves!
Can’t Help Falling in Love
Graceland Wedding Chapel
Envisage a 1960s cotton-candy Cadillac escorting you to one of the most iconic wedding chapels on the Las Vegas strip – The Graceland Chapel. A part of the city’s history for over 50 years, it sets the standard for marriages conducted by the King of Rock and Roll, even Bon Jovi can give his stamp of approval! Elvis will escort you down the aisle, providing your husband-to-be doesn’t mind you having Elvis on one arm and him on the other! The musical legend will then serenade you both with 3 of your favourite songs, before declaring you as newlyweds. No wish is too demanding and no idea too extravagant here, as the exceptional staff will take every care to ensure your wedding day is truly unforgettable.
The Language of Love
The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas
Fuse one of the most romantic cities in the world with one of the most glitzy and glamorous, and you have a location to fall head over heels for! Built from Gustave Eiffel’s original plans, the one-half scale Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas provides a thrilling 460ft-high setting overlooking the real City of Lights, an ideal spot to say ‘I Do’ in Vegas. Guests will be forgiven if eyes wander from the bridal couple to the prominent landmarks which interject the 360 degree views, as you take your romance to new heights. Ceremonies can be as traditional or entertaining as you wish; something old (vintage Champagne), something new (fresh floral bouquet) something borrowed (your luxurious bridal room) and something blue (those liquid courage shots for the groomsmen!).
Celebrate in Sin City
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas – apart from your marriage! If you decide to extend your trip to include an action-packed honeymoon in this buzzing and bustling city, you’ll be rewarded with a wealth of entertainment options, fine dining, and lavish resorts offering newlyweds complimentary perks.

Don’t forget to catch one of the famous shows in the evening – fans of the Beatles will adore Cirque du Soleil’s impressive LOVE performance – and most importantly, don’t forget your camera as you’ll want to capture every magical moment of your Vegas wedding and honeymoon!
