You will need some Paperwork for a Las Vegas Wedding
Even though a Vegas wedding can seem quick and easy, there’s still some necessary paperwork for a Las Vegas wedding to make your wedding day seamless. Not sure what you need to get hitched in Las Vegas? Here are a few items you just shouldn’t forget.
A marriage license is absolutely required to have a wedding performed at any chapel or location. And, you’ll need to have this before you’re able to walk down the aisle.
In Las Vegas, the county clerk’s office is where you’ll need to go. Open from 8 a.m. to midnight, you’ll be able to pop in and register. It’s even possible to preregister online!
Lucky for you, Las Vegas does not have a required waiting period or blood test, so your wedding day plans can move forward quickly!
And to get that coveted piece of paper that allows your wedding day plans to move forward, you’ll need to be 18 years or older, with at least one form of identification (such as a birth certificate, passport or military ID). Be prepared to pay – obtaining your marriage license will cost about $60.
Passports, identification and payment options
Whether you’re traveling five minutes or five hours into Vegas (or even from another country), you’ll want to remember to pack ID information that will be necessary for your big day. Identification will not only allow you to obtain a marriage license, but also get into entertainment hotspots that have age restrictions.
And, no matter how far from home you’re travelling; don’t forget about bringing several forms of payment, such as checks, bank cards and cash. These often-forgotten items can put a halt on your ceremony day in search of a bank or ATM.
If you’ve decided to write and recite your own vows, don’t forget them! You’ll need to bring those along to discuss with your expert wedding planner. But, if you don’t have them written before the big day (what are you waiting for?), at least let your officiant or wedding planner know that you want to read your own vows, so that time for them can be worked into the ceremony.
