Perhaps getting married in Las Vegas is just one of the dozens of activities, visits and tours that you're planning to do during your stay. If you are short on time, this 1-hour ceremony might be the best option to check this off your bucket list and continue with the rest of your itinerary.

At the time of booking you will be able to plan your own wedding, choosing the time of the ceremony and the package that you like best to make sure you never forget this special day.

The ceremony

After picking you up at your hotel in a limousine, the chauffeur will take you to the place of the ceremony, the Special Memory Wedding Chapel. A maximum of 6 guests may accompany you on the transfer at no additional cost. Once you have exchanged rings you will have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of champagne to toast to your love if you choose package C.

For an express Las Vegas wedding, there are also "self-service ceremonies". A wedding from your own car is the perfect idea for those couples traveling on their own to Las Vegas. The coolest thing about this ceremony at the Special Memory Wedding Chapel is that it takes place without leaving the car as if it were you were ordering a couple of hamburgers at the drive-in.

Well, that depends of course on how you want your pictures to be taken: you can get out of the car so that your outfits can be better appreciated. As a general rule, these kinds of weddings are the most economical option to get married in Las Vegas, as it costs $ 76.

Reservation

You will be able to plan your own self-service wedding when you make the reservation choosing the time of the wedding and the package with which you will customize the event. Since the reservations are for only two people, you won't need to specify how many guests will come with you, but you will be able to choose between different package options, which I'll tell you about below.

The ceremony

If you choose the Supersize option or the photo tour option, you can have a private limousine take you to the chapel and then on a photo tour of 1 or 2 hours around Las Vegas to immortalize this special day. Afterward, you will also be taken back to the hotel.

The wedding itself lasts less than 10 minutes and when it concludes, after the congratulations of the officiant and the photographer, the photo tour begins (if you choose this option).
