Ve­gas reigns as ‘mar­riage cap­i­tal’

The Republican Herald - - WEDDING GUIDE -

One of the more pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tions in the United States is also a pop­u­lar place to tie the knot.

The bright lights of the Las Ve­gas strip and the sur­round­ing area have drawn vis­i­tors for decades. Las Ve­gas also is home to more than 100,000 wed­dings per year, ac­cord­ing to Clark County Clerk mar­riage li­cense records. Wed­dings may be per­formed at lo­cal churches, other houses of wor­ship, in­side lav­ish casi­nos or at the small chapels in and around Las Ve­gas.

Las Ve­gas is some­times re­ferred to as “The Mar­riage Cap­i­tal of the World” thanks in part to the ease of ac­quir­ing a mar­riage li­cense in the city and the min­i­mal costs in­volved to tie the knot. But Las Ve­gas is more than just a pop­u­lar place to tie the knot.

Ac­cord­ing to data gath­ered by Face­book in 2014, when the so­cial me­dia ser­vice compiled data from users “check-ins,” Las Ve­gas also has grown into a pop­u­lar hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion. Las Ve­gas also has evolved into a pop­u­lar spot to cel­e­brate one last hur­rah be­fore the big wed­ding day. In­di­vid­u­als fre­quently plan bach­e­lor or bach­e­lorette party week­ends that in­cor­po­rate all of the fun Las Ve­gas has to of­fer.
