Many people go to Las Vegas to have a hassle-free, cheap wedding, so much so that more than 100,000 people get married there every year, according to Newsweek magazine. The ease of attaining a marriage license without having to take a blood test is also attractive to couples. Three important Vegas-wedding things that you need not forget are money, a marriage license and a location.


While a wedding in Las Vegas can cost less than a local wedding or destination wedding, you will still have expenses. The marriage license fee costs £35 and, there will be a minister fee which ranges from £65 to £195. Some chapels charge for guests in attendance, and the cost of the wedding package, which varies greatly depending on the size of the wedding, is another cost to consider. Some weddings cost as little as £64, while other large weddings cost in several thousand. Remember, if you have food, a cake, candles and decorations, they're not likely to be included in the cost of the smaller chapel packages.

Marriage License

To get married in Las Vegas you must be at least 18 years old and of the opposite sex, and there must be no relation between the couple. Upon proof of age, by using a birth certificate, driver's license or passport, you receive a marriage license. If you are younger than 18, consent from a legal guardian is required. If you are residents of a country other than the United States, you may also get married, but your country of residence may require a copy of the marriage certificate and an apostille. Allot at least a one-hour waiting period to receive your license. The marriage license costs £35. Nevada does not require a blood test to be married.
