Visit Wedding Row in Las Vegas

In 2021, on average about 230 couples got married every day in Las Vegas, NV, the “Marriage Capital of the World.” Maybe you were one of them. Couples can choose from basic to fancy — a no-frills ceremony at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau is affordable to just about anyone. Every morning a few cocktail-fueled gamblers stagger in to tie the knot. We’ll bet future 10-year anniversaries among them won’t be common.

Chapel of the Flowers

But to those more sober visitors who wish to tie the knot, a local wedding chapel better fits the bill. Heck, for lovebirds too lazy to get out their cars, a drive-through wedding is a superb choice.

When in Las Vegas, it’s always fun to drive by some of these chapels, and if nothing else marvel at their creative names. A few of our favorites: Elvis Chapel, Cupid’s Wedding Chapel, The Lucky Little Chapel, and of course, the Little White Chapel Drive thru.

These chapels and others are easy to find these days thanks to a dozen new “Wedding Row” banners flying high on light posts between Bridger and Bonneville avenues, on Lewis Avenue between Casino Center Boulevard and Third, on Bridger between Casino Center and Third, and other downtown locations.

And, a bit of trivia: 80 percent of all marriage licenses issued in Southern Nevada are to visitors. We looked but could find no statistics on how many fell in love sipping cocktails late into the night whilst playing the slots.

Last February, Clark County issued its 5-millionth marriage license.

There are plenty of RV parks in the Las Vegas area a short drive from the wedding chapels, should you wish to get married or maybe even renew your vows.

We eloped at Little Church of the West in Las Vegas in 1995 and renewed our vows on our 20th wedding anniversary at the same church. (this time with my monther and father in-law present) No regrets.

We got married in Carson CIty, NV before we moved here. That wedding chapel is gone now but we occasionally run into the ‘reverend’ that married us. He says he no longer marries folks because they didn’t seem to be taking their marriage vows seriously. But he was glad to see that we’re still going strong after 36 years.

We got married 43 years ago at Chapel Of The Bells.

My husband & I hopped on a plane to Vegas to marry after getting fed up with relatives trying to turn our simple wedding into an extravagant affair. That was 38 years ago, Feb. 14, 1985. We’re still going strong.

When we were in Death Valley (husband worked for the park) we went to Las Vegas to get our license & rings, but were married in Pahrump. I refused to get married there or to have our kid there. NOT my favorite place.

We were married at the Little White wedding Chapel (many moons ago) after dating for 3 years! Was the perfect choice for us and is a treasured memory!
