Choosing a Freestanding Chapel VS a Casino Chapel

Table of Contents

Las Vegas is the perfect backdrop for your dream wedding. Between the bright lights, big city vibe, and romance, you’ll be glad you chose the city of entertainment (and sin) for your big day. Once you decide Vegas is your dream destination, you’ll need to choose a chapel. Most tourists and locals choose to get married in a freestanding chapel or large casino resort on the Las Vegas Strip. But how do you choose which one is right for you and your fiance? It all depends on what’s important to you as a couple.

Here are a few things to consider when choosing a freestanding chapel vs. a casino chapel.


Most of the upscale casino chapels on the strip have basic packages starting at $1,500- $2,000. For a weekend wedding, plan on paying an even higher price. Plus, the amenities of the casino chapels are more expensive than our freestanding chapel. If you’re on a budget, we recommend a freestanding chapel. Not only are they more affordable, but they also offer the same services and amenities as high-end casino resorts. At The Little Vegas Chapel, our affordable Las Vegas wedding packages start at just $199.


Although it’s easy to find the casino on the strip with the help of your Google Maps, you may have a difficult time finding the actual chapel once you’ve made your way inside. That’s because large resorts have confusing signage and layouts. Plus, be prepared to walk a relatively long distance to get the chapel. This can also be a problem for your family members with walkers or in wheelchairs.

The Little Vegas Chapel is conveniently located on the Las Vegas Strip. Heading to the chapel is even more simple with a package including a limousine ride from your hotel and return. Once you and your wedding party arrive, the chapel staff will usher you and your guests to the ceremony. As a bonus, you can drop off guests who need extra assistance directly in front of the chapel, and there is no need for an elevator or escalator.


Believe it or not, smoking in many Las Vegas casinos is still allowed. If you choose a casino chapel for your Las Vegas wedding, you’ll have to walk through a smoke-filled casino floor to arrive at the wedding chapel, making your wedding gown, tuxedo, and guests smell like cigarette smoke. On top of the unpleasant smell, the smoke may harm guests who are allergic to smoke, have asthma, or require an oxygen tank. Fortunately, our freestanding chapel is a non-smoking venue.

Wedding Packages

Most freestanding and casino wedding chapels have different wedding packages with various services and amenities. The difference? Freestanding wedding chapels offer more than just your traditional wedding ceremony. Freestanding chapels also specialize in Viva Las Vegas weddings, incorporating some rockabilly elements from The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. At The Little Vegas Chapel, we offer Elvis wedding packages, which are designed to combine traditional wedding elements along with an entertaining and enthusiastic Elvis Tribute Artist’s performance. Our Elvis impersonators sing several of the King’s top hits including:

  • Love Me Tender
  • Can’t Help Falling In Love
  • Viva Las Vegas
  • Burning Love
  • Always On My Mind

Freestanding chapels also offer pretend weddings, which are a fun way to have a ceremony without the legalities and messy paperwork. Pretend ceremonies are performed with many similarities to a legal Las Vegas wedding.


Both freestanding and casino chapels offer limousine rentals to add a touch of elegance and tradition to your Las Vegas wedding. Here are some details you can expect when you rent a limousine in Las Vegas from a wedding chapel:

  • Comfortable seating for six
  • Convenient transportation to and from your ceremony
  • Cruising around Las Vegas in a sleek limousine
  • Affordability and style
  • A unique backdrop for amazing photos

Wedding Dress and Tuxedo Rental

You shouldn’t walk down the aisle without a wedding dress or tuxedo. Most casino chapels lack the option of wedding dress and tuxedo rental. Most freestanding chapels, like The Little Vegas Chapel, have everything you need for your impromptu Vegas wedding.


If you decide on a whim to elope in the wedding capital of the world, you’ll want to say your “I Do’s” at a freestanding wedding chapel. Larger casino chapels require reservations and a deposit. 

Although we accept walk-ins here at the Little Vegas Chapel, we recommend making a reservation to guarantee a time with us for your ceremony.

What Makes The Little Vegas Chapel Stand Out?

Since Las Vegas is the wedding capital of the world, there are several different wedding chapels to choose from. So what makes The Little Vegas Chapel stand out among the rest? Our quaint and romantic wedding chapel is one of the few freestanding wedding chapels located on the stunning strip. Coupled with our exemplary customer service and competitive prices, we can offer an unforgettable experience at a reasonable price.
