The Las Vegas Wedding
Officially, Las Vegas calls itself “The Entertainment Capital of the
World,” and, while there is no end to the entertainment offered up in
sin city, a more fitting designation is Vegas’ secondary title “The
Wedding Capital of the World.” Las Vegas weddings have become the stuff
that legends, sitcom jokes, and tabloid pages are made of over the years,
and Vegas lives up to the legend with over 100,000 couples tying the
proverbial knot for better or for worse in the Nevada neon every year.
The reason for Las Vegas’ reputation as the hot spot for quickie marriages
is twofold. First of all, the requirements for obtaining a marriage
license in Clark County are very lax, with no blood test or waiting
period required. Essentially anyone who is able to show up with the
$55.00 license fee and a willing potential spouse is just a step away
from a Las Vegas wedding that can be as lovely or as corny as the couple
desires. Often times the corny factor increases in direct relation to
the amount of alcohol the participants have consumed. It is surely the
more intoxicated of couples that opt to be married by an Elvis impersonator.
Secondly, the list of celebrities who have taken at least one plunge
into the matrimonial pool in Vegas is rather lengthy. In addition to
the recent Brittney Spears debacle, droves of famous folk have chosen
Vegas as the place to get hitched, whether it was planned well in advance
or the end result of a bit too much fun at the Tropicana.
Noteworthy celebrities to tie the knot in Vegas over the years have
included Kirk Douglas, Fernando Lamas, Rita Hayworth, Jane Fonda, Michael
Jordan, Jon Bon Jovi, and, of course, the King himself, among others.
Some of these marriages went the way of Brittney’s, ending after a short
or somewhat longer time; others lasted ‘til death did them part or are
still going strong. Long-term Vegas marriages include those of Paul
Newman and Joanne Woodward, Betty White and Alan Ludden, and Steve Lawrence
and Eydie Gorme, proving that a Las Vegas wedding can indeed result
in a marriage that lasts.
The tradition of the Las Vegas wedding is not merely the product of
folks acting insanely while under the influence of alcohol and the Vegas
party atmosphere, however. Many couples choose Vegas as the perfect
destination for a marriage and honeymoon rolled into one big event.
For the couple considering making it legal in Las Vegas there exist
several web sites that can help you locate everything you need for a
wedding, including the chapel, a minister or other official to perform
the ceremony, florists, bakers, photographers, musicians and DJ’s, videographers,
literally everything that would be needed to make your Las Vegas wedding
as much like a “real” wedding as you want it to be. And, if you still
want to get hitched to Trixie, the cocktail waitress after winning big
at the Luxor at three in the morning, that option is always available.
