According to a Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Authority (LVCVA) profile survey, about 4% of visitors to Vegas made the trip to get married in 2019. With total visitation in 2019 totaling 42 million visitors, 4% equates to a significant number of weddings. The reason many flock to Vegas for their wedding is the ability to get a same-day marriage license with no waiting period or blood test required (More on the nuts and bolts of obtaining a marriage license here).
In addition to easy access to a marriage license, Las Vegas is an appealing wedding destination due to the wide range of venues offered. From budget, no-frill venues, to elaborate chapels, Las Vegas has something for everyone.
Here, we wanted to point out some of the most unique places to get married in Vegas, highlighting one of a kind venues that can differentiate your wedding experience. If your idea of the perfect Las Vegas wedding venue is a dull casino or off-Strip chapel, these suggestions are likely not for you.
