An Elvis impersonator to walk you down the aisle? Check! A Mermaid to swim by your side? Check! A roller coaster with twists and turns? Check!

In Las Vegas, about 120,000 people a year get married, including many celebrities, so we have a wedding to fit just about all your deepest (and weirdest) desires. From a traditionally romantic wedding to totally outrageous, you can’t go wrong tying the knot in the wedding capital of the world.

Along with a wedding for everyone, there’s also a wedding chapel on just about every corner, whether a hotel wedding chapel, a drive-thru wedding chapel or the quaint little chapel on the side of the road. If there isn’t a chapel on the corner that suits you, then you could always book a wedding on wheels. That’s right, The Las Vegas Wedding Wagon, a mobile chapel that will come to you.

For an extensive list of Las Vegas wedding chapels or the book your wedding, visit our Las Vegas Weddings page.

Hotel Chapel Heaven
Marriage is a serious business in Las Vegas, so most hotels on the Las Vegas Strip have wedding chapels. The Strip’s newest chapel is the Wedding Chapel at Aria. This sophisticated chapel seats up to 60 guests, but packages are also offered poolside, beside the Aria spa fireplace, in front of the resort’s 270-foot-long stone water wall or inside the Dal Chihuly glass art gallery.

Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world and a wedding at the Paris Las Vegas hotel is pretty close to the real thing. Not only can you get married in the Paris hotel’s wedding chapel, but you can also opt for a ceremony atop the half-scale Eiffel Tower replica, overlooking the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip.

The spectacular Bellagio Fountains at the Bellagio Hotel are considered one of the most iconic emblems of Las Vegas and make for a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding. The hotel offers a wedding package where you’re married on a terrace overlooking the fountains. The water will shoot into the air the moment you share your first kiss as husband and wife.

Those who get married in The Chapel at Luxor can choose from several packages including a wedding on the Grand Staircase in the Titanic Artifact Exhibition.

The Hard Rock Hotel, meanwhile, offers an array of wedding packages including an edgy Rock ‘n Roll ceremony and a sophisticated White Wedding.

Feel sky high when you say “I Do” in the Chapel at the Clouds at the Stratosphere, with two chapels on the 103rd floor or indoor and outdoor observation deck weddings on level 112. Daredevil couples can even tie the knot in a thrill ride wedding atop the tallest observation tower west of the Mississippi.

Commitment Ceremonies
While gay marriage is not legally recognized in Nevada, there are several chapels where LGBTQ couples can enjoy a commitment ceremony with many of the same amenities of a traditional wedding service.

Chapels offering this service include Cupid’s Wedding Chapel, the Pop-Up Wedding Chapel at The Cosmopolitan, Silver Bell Wedding Chapel, Gay Chapel of Las Vegas and Eternal Hope Ministry.

Elvis weddings … obviously
In 1967, the King of Rock, Elvis Presley, married his Queen, Priscilla, in Vegas. And now, Elvis can play a vital role in your Vegas wedding.

Offerings include the Elvis/Blue Hawaii package at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (including a Priscilla impersonator); an Elvis serenading you at the Silver Bell Wedding Chapel; and an Elvis to perform your ceremony at Graceland Wedding Chapel.

The Royale Wedding Chapel at the Riviera Hotel offers an Elvis Wedding, including an Elvis impersonator who will sing three songs of your choice. The Love Me Tender package at the Tropicana Las Vegas hotel includes Elvis ceremony music and an Elvis impersonator as your officiant.

Married at the Mob Museum
This fine city has a long history involving mobsters so it’s only natural that we’d find a way to incorporate them into your future. At the Mob Museum, you can become legally bound among the bastions of organized crime in Las Vegas. ‘Til death do you part!

Welcome to Las Vegas sign weddings
The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign may seem like a bit of a tourist trap, but you’re about to enter into a binding lifetime commitment, so really trap is an apt term to describe it. Kidding! The sign is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so it is an iconic spot to tie the knot, and your photos will double as wedding photos and momentous memories of your Vegas vacation!

Just keep swimming
At the Silverton, scuba certified couples can dive right into their vows in the 117,000-gallon Silverton Aquarium. Guests will include friends, family and 160 species of fish from around the world, while the mermaids who perform in the aquarium can serve as your bridesmaids. Gives new meaning to “Chicken or fish?”

Fly high
Soar above Las Vegas in a helicopter and land at the Grand Canyon or Valley of Fire for a mini-destination wedding. Your helicopter will whisk you away to the destination of choice, giving you a beautiful backdrop for exchanging vows.

The great outdoors
The middle of summer may not be the best time for an outdoor wedding, but there are several other times in Las Vegas when the weather is more accommodating. Get married amid the red sandstone at Red Rock or the pine trees and crisp mountain air at Mount Charleston. Ride a boat across Lake Mead for a water wedding or choose one of several scenic locations at the lush Springs Preserve, including a botanical garden.

Get ready for a bumpy ride
Love can be a bit of a roller coaster, so it makes sense that you can tie the knot on a real roller coaster – The Roller Coaster at New York-New York. Say your “I Do’s” in the first car of the 16-person roller coaster then buckle up for the ride of your life! No wonder you have those butterflies in your stomach.
