Las Vegas is known as Marriage Paradise because it is easy, fast, and exciting. Each year approximately 120,000 marriage ceremonies are performed in Las Vegas.
After you and your loved one get your license, the next question is, where do we get married? What location should we choose? Your first thought might be a nice wedding chapel with an Elvis impersonator, or some other impersonator singing a love song to make the ceremony a very special one.
Or, if you want go cheaper, you might decide to simply get married in front of a Clark County Commissioner of Civil Marriages in Downtown Las Vegas. This is an inexpensive, fast, and uncomplicated option.
But keep in mind that there are so many other options and opportunities. For example, getting married on Mount Charleston, which is only one hour outside of Las Vegas, provides a much cooler and quieter environment than the heat and busyness of Las Vegas.
Or consider the option of getting married on a boat at Lake Mead. You’ll be surrounded by the beautiful Black Mountains–a picturesque landscape that is perfect for impressive, memorable photos.
Not afraid of heights? Consider having an unforgettable experience while overlooking the Las Vegas Strip in a helicopter–especially at night with a sea of lights underneath–this is sure to be a long lasting memory!
Another popular place to get married is at the famous Las Vegas Welcome Sign. Of course, Elvis could be there as well, driving up with his pink Cadillac and singing his favorite songs.
Another very special place is the wonderful Red Rock Canyon, located at the eastern corner of the Mojave Desert. Only about 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, this venue is in high demand because of the picturesque landscape and beautiful, colorful mountains.
And keep in mind that there are many Las Vegas Casinos/Hotels who offer a wide range of ceremonies to chose from.
The best way to go about this is to find THE special place first, then to contact a wedding officiant or a wedding planner. They can plan a ceremony just for you and your loved one. But, always be aware that the officiant should show you their permission ID number as issued by a County Clerk before any planning is started.
With good planning ahead, nothing can go wrong.
Good luck and have fun!
Today, I want to kick off my first blog with the question, “How do you obtain a Las Vegas Marriage License?” Honestly, it’s very easy!
But first, here are some important rules to remember:
Under the law, any false statement will be prosecuted. For example, it’s illegal to check off the box stating that you’re single if, in fact, you’re still married.
The requirements for obtaining a marriage license in Las Vegas are the same for US Citizens and non-US Citizens. Applicants must be at least 18 years old. The minimum age is 16 years. Of course, parent consent is required.
It is mandatory that both parties be present at the Marriage License Office. You must provide a valid passport, and must state your Social Security number if you are a US Citizen. It’s best to have your Social Security Card with you to prevent accidentally giving an incorrect number. Other identification documents will be considered as long as they have your name and photograph on it. The fee for the license is currently $77.00.
It is extremely important to check, and double check, your application thoroughly. For example, if your name is incorrectly spelled, then the marriage certificate will also reflect the misspelling. This can be very complicated, and could also be costly to correct the error. Therefore, be sure to provide the correct certificates with your complete name listed. One way to avoid this unnecessary error is to have your birth certificate on hand. That way there will be no question as to the spelling of your name. The license will be issued immediately, and is valid for one year in the State of Nevada. And no, there is no blood test required.
With the marriage license in hand, couples can get married right away. But they need a witness at the ceremony, per Nevada state law. Don’t worry, though; there are always people around, like other brides and grooms, who will be willing to act as witnesses. And, of course, there are always other people who would like to get a tip for doing the simple job of being a witness.
After the marriage, you will need to do the name change at the Registrar’s Office in the county where you live. It is very important to apply for the documents that the authorities need in order to register the marriage in your county. There are lots of companies offering this service. The best way would be to choose a company where a person is available for you to ask questions, get updates, etc.
Well guess what? That’s what I do! And I like to be in contact with my clients throughout the process until they have their official documents in hand.
