36 Unique Places To Get Hitched In Vegas, Ranging From The Bizarre To The Extravagant

·5 min read

The concept of "getting married in Vegas" certainly isn't anything new. From Elvis impersonators as officiants, to drunken same-day decisions, getting hitched in Sin City is often viewed as a mixture of delightfully kitschy, spontaneous, and romantic in its own unique way.

In addition to being an over-the-top location to tie the knot, Las Vegas is also in one of the few states where you can get a same-day marriage license — Nevada. In combination with the highly encouraged drinking and partying, you can probably see how Vegas weddings have become such a "thing."

But if you're anything like me — well, me yesterday before I started researching this article — you probably think that the cute but kitschy chapels, and Elvis officiants, are pretty much the only options in that wild city.

As I looked into whether or not that was true, I was quite surprised to find that there are some unbelievably unique, glamorous, niche, insane, and, at times, pricey wedding venue options in Las Vegas.

From elitely private helicopter ceremonies, to a handful of the most well-known landmarks in the area, the list of interesting places to get married in Vegas is much longer than you might think.

Without further ado, let's take a closer look at 36 of the coolest places I stumbled upon.

1.The Mob Museum

Almost exactly what it sounds like, and nothing like you would ever expect at the same time, The Mob Museum is one of Las Vegas's most popular tourist destinations. According to their website, they are "a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a mission to advance the public understanding of organized crime’s history and impact on American society." But while you might think this venue is only suited for couples obsessed with The Godfather, The Mob Museum offers a slew of varying wedding packages for different couple styles.

With the most affordable package starting at $600 (The Million Dollar Wedding) for up to four guests, and the most expensive being $16,950–$17,950 (The Vintage Vegas Wedding) for 60 guests, there's something for every kind of couple looking to get hitched while surrounded by many unique aspects of American crime history, glamour, and prohibition.

7.Planet 13 Cannabis Dispensary

The newly offered wedding packages at Planet 13 Las Vegas, the largest dispensary IN THE WORLD, were actually what got me interested in finding other unique wedding venues in Vegas in the first place. As someone who has always imagined having a cannabis bar at my own wedding, I'm willing to bet this cannabis wedding venue is many tokers' idea of a dream nuptials location.

While Nevada is working on setting up consumption lounges, one thing to be very clear about is that no one can actually consume cannabis during the wedding ceremony, and you can't incorporate it in the ceremony. While I assume that latter piece means you can't use pot leaves to accentuate your bouquet (RIP), Planet 13 VP of Sales and Marketing David Farris spoke with Cannabis Business Times to explain the regulations further. “We don’t want to do anything that puts licenses in jeopardy or creates any larger-scale issues,” he said. “So, we’re very by the book and strict in that way.”

The company hopes to expand its offerings moving forward, but for now, they offer a few different packages ranging from super low-key to super extravagant.

For the breakfast lovers who have fallen in love, Denny's on Fremont St. in Las Vegas is the perfect place to get hitched. According to their website, the $199 package includes:

- Use of the chapel

- Silk presentation bouquet & boutonniere Available in red, white, pink or yellow

While it may seem odd to some, Denny's is a lovely, low-key, and low-cost wedding venue option. Apparently, they perform about 25 weddings per year at their Vegas location!

There are a number of chapels that offer ceremonies in front of the famous Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas sign, located at the south end of the strip. From The Little Church Of The West, to the countless other chapel options, you can customize this iconic option by choosing the chapel that speaks to you the most.

If you're seeking a simplistic, stress-free Vegas wedding, getting hitched outdoors in front of the sign makes for an easy day and iconic wedding photos.
