Bellagio Las Vegas
Rising like a royal palace over the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio…
There’s nothing like it anywhere on this planet! Whether you gamble or not, Las Vegas is a magical place for an out-of-this-world honeymoon. Hundreds of couples marry here every Valentine’s Day. Thousands tie the knot in the glittering hotels and wedding chapels, and even more couples honeymoon here year round. This outrageous, action-packed place never shuts down and just about everything under the sun is at your fingertips at all hours of the day and night. All you have to do is choose what fits your mood at the moment.
Believe it or not, some hotels do not have casinos and you can find myriads of places to be alone together in a beautiful setting. Sensational shows, sparkling casinos, gourmet restaurants and an endless number of other activities await. You can “travel the world”— climb the “Eiffel Tower” for a panoramic view, take a gondola ride on a Venetian canal, or hop a boat for a trip along the Nile. Just off the world famous Strip, you can explore the great outdoors together, see beautiful desertscapes, go climbing at Red Rock Canyon, marvel at ancient Indian cave drawings, or play golf on your choice of challenging championship courses. Every moment you share has a special sparkle here.
Las Vegas may be the marriage capital of the world. Thousands of couples marry here every year and hundreds choose Valentine’s Day to tie the knot. The state makes it easy with permissive regulations. No blood tests or residence waits are required. You only have to bring ID (Social Security, passport, certified birth certificate, military papers) to get a marriage license downtown at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau which is open from 8 a.m.-midnight most days and 24 hours on holidays like New Year’s Eve. Then, you can have a quick civil ceremony at the Commissioner of Civil Marriages (also downtown) , a themed event or a proper ceremony before a judge or a priest, rabbi or minister at an independent wedding chapel or at your hotel’s wedding chapel. Whatever you choose, the marriage will be legal. Most big hotel/casinos have tasteful on site wedding chapels and wedding planners on staff who can arrange all the details before you arrive. Independent wedding chapels offer outrageous themed weddings–everything from Hawaiian weddings to events where Elvis impersonators serenade you. You can choose a drive through wedding or an intimate ceremony just for the two of you or stage an elaborate, extravagant over the top event for your family and guests. Whatever you choose, Las Vegas can accommodate it, whether your group is 5 or 500. And the best is, you can stay on after the wedding to enjoy your honeymoon. Many hotels offer special wedding packages with outrageous perks that include gourmet meals, penthouse suites, show tickets and other luxuries.
