Las Vegas is known as the “Marriage Capital of the World.” In fact, over 150 couples get married in the city every day according to Visit Las Vegas.
While having a wedding in Sin City will always be a unique experience, there are more than a few ways to kick your Vegas nuptials up a notch or two. From ceremonies performed at 550 feet to an Elvis-led soiree, it’s easier than ever to pull off an unforgettable Las Vegas wedding.
Have an iconic Elvis ceremony
Despite some questions surrounding the longstanding Vegas tradition earlier in the year, you can still get married by Elvis. According to recent news it seems like many chapels are working out licensing agreements to continue to use his likeness. Couples may want to tie the knot at Graceland Wedding Chapel, the oldest wedding chapel in Las Vegas and recognized as the first chapel in the world to conduct an Elvis themed wedding ceremony.
Tie the knot at the Mob Museum
Whether you’ve re-watched Married to the Mob and The Godfather trilogy several times, or you just wantto get married in a totally unique venue, The Mob Museum in downtown Vegas could easily fit the bill. Say “I do” in the historic 1930s courtroom. Or, have the events team plan a roaring 20s-themed wedding in the hidden VIP room, among other fun options.
Get married on a gondola
If a trip to Italy is out of the question for now, rest assured you can still say “I do” on a gondola. Albeit a lot closer to home. The Venetian offers an idyllic reproduction of the canals of Venice, complete with arches, cobbled walkways and loads of charm. Choose from one of several scenic wedding locations for a European-inspired ceremony you won’t soon forget.
Have a sky-high wedding at The Strat
In addition to having a wedding on the High Roller, alter-bound couples can go even higher with a ceremony at Chapel in the Clouds at The Strat Hotel, Casino & SkyPod – the only venue in Las Vegas located 800 feet high above the Las Vegas Valley (exceptional views included). Options include indoor and outdoor observation deck weddings and on-site planners are available to ensure a seamless ceremony.
Light up your special day at the Neon Museum
The Neon Museum is another cultural space that makes for an eye-popping wedding venue in Las Vegas. Decades of the city’s iconic neon signs are preserved here. That means you can get that photo-perfect backdrop. Surround yourself in neon at the museum’s private North Gallery venue (with capacity for up to 50).
Say “I do” at 550 feet
The High Roller at The LINQ Promenade is known as the tallest observation wheel in North America. What better venue for an awe-inspiring “I do?”. Reaching heights of 550 feet for a one-of-a-kind wedding, the observation wheel offers several packages and various services for the 30-minute ceremony.
