Planning your not so typical Las Vegas Elopement

Why a Las Vegas Elopement?

Forget everything you know about Las Vegas elopements! True, it’s a legendary name in the wedding industry, but it’s not just for the carefree, young and in love couples. Couples from all around the world are choosing to elope in Vegas, not only because of how easy and budget-friendly it is but because of beautiful and lively the city is. It has a ton to offer!

The legal side to your vegas elopement is made easy with their notoriously easy to get marriage licenses. You can literally just need to complete a simple form, along with $77 and you’ll be good to go! The marriage is legal and binding through the United States, as well as many other countries.

Eloping in a chapel (or even a drive-through chapel) isn’t the only place to tie the knot around here. Because of how lenient the marriage licenses are, you’ll find that the sky’s the limit when it comes to picking the perfect place to say your vows. Get as creative as you can possibly imagine! We know you’re not heading to Vegas for a typical elopement, you’re heading to Vegas to do something crazy and exciting!
