According to LasVegasKids.Net: "With over 300 weddings every day in Las Vegas, it is the top wedding destination in the US and second in the world for most number of weddings in a single city, falling short of Istanbul."
Las Vegas has been called "The Marriage Capital of the World", but do you know what led Vegas to hold this auspicious title?
In 1931, Nevada's new marriage law passed that allowed couples to get a marriage license on the spot without any requirements or wait times.
The Clark County Courthouse (the county Las Vegas is located in) is open 24/7 - yes, the courthouse is open even on holidays and the hours never change. The Courthouse is open from 8am - 12am year-round.
As couples began to flock to Las Vegas to get married, more wedding venues started to show up around the city. Today, many of the major hotels and casinos have their own wedding chapels. Some local restaurants provide wedding ceremonies as well. Multiple free standing wedding chapels are scattered throughout the city, and weddings can also be performed on golf courses or in local churches. It’s even possible to have a drive-thru wedding for couples that don’t want to waste time on the ceremony so they can get on to the honeymoon. Many of the Las Vegas wedding venues offer themed weddings as well, which are attractive to couples that want a unique wedding.
In short - Nevada’s lenient marriage laws, a courthouse that is open 365 days a year, and the numerous venues in the city have combined to make Las Vegas the world’s most popular spot for weddings!
