Why You Need a Marriage License in Nevada
When it comes to Las Vegas weddings, the state of Nevada has certain rules that must be followed for the wedding to be legally recognized. Our minister will sign the marriage license, thereby showing the marriage is valid in all 50 states and every country around the world.
Both partners will need to go in person to the Clark County Marriage License Bureau to obtain a marriage license. To prove your identity, you must provide a government issued valid photo identification, such as a driver’s license or a passport. You will then pay the state of Nevada for the license. After obtaining the marriage license, bring that documents to The Little Vegas Chapel where we will take care of the rest including recording the certificate with the local official to make your marriage legal.

What About Wedding Vows
We work hard to ensure that your wedding is as special and as personal as possible. One area that really helps to make a wedding ceremony amazing is to incorporate your own wedding vows into the ceremony. Just let your officiant know so they can make sure to give you the opportunity at the best moment to recite your vows during the ceremony. In most wedding ceremonies, the vows are held near the beginning of the ceremony. Other couples prefer to have the vows read after exchanging their wedding bands. It all depends on your personal preference. We do work with couples if you have additional things to incorporate in the ceremony including a blessing of the hands or a unity candle ceremony.
Can I Use My Own Minister in Las Vegas?
There are many couples who prefer to have a close friend or family member perform their marriage ceremony. We do allow couples to have their friend of family member perform the wedding as long as they have been legally ordained by the State of Nevada to perform as their minister. The State of Nevada normally requests at least 30 days to process minister applications. When ordained with the State of Nevada, you will have your minister status for one year. The outside minister’s fee is just an additional $150 to your selected package. Your minister must provide their Certificate of Authority to Solemnize Marriages as well as their Minister’s Identification Card to the chapel before your ceremony.
If you are requesting an Elvis Themed wedding, we will need to discuss the minister details with you for the ceremony to be perfected. We can provide guidance on how to perform the wedding ceremony properly to ensure all legal requirements are met. A themed wedding needs to be carefully planned out for it to be perfect.
