I don’t think there is a right or wrong way –

– Go to Vegas

– Get married and don’t tell anyone til it’s over at a little chaple there.

They have hundreds. Your best bet would be to maybe look at the vegas web site. SOme hotels have wedding packages.

have fun.

Just like anywhere else, you will have to get a marriage license.  In NV you get it at the county clerks office, as in most states.  There is no waiting period, no blood tests required, you do not have to be a NV resident.

This link gives the county clerk’s office addresses (in Vegas, Mesquite, and Laughlin):


And if you page around, there is a link that provides hours of operation.  This link gives you a downloadable form to fill out, if you want to be prepared (although you must bring it in person; cannot submit over the internet):

My friend got married in Vegas – they actually meant to have a wedding but before they got too far along in the planning they gave up and went to Vegas.  They told their parents who chose not to come.  They told us we could come (I was supposed to be her MOH) but since I only had a week notice it was out.  They got a "wedding package" I think with the hotel they stayed at.  With pictures and a wedding video and flowers and everything. They don’t have a ton of pictures, but they have them up in the house and it looks like they had a normal wedding.  I believe they both said they had no regrets and had a lot of fun…  It wasn’t particularly cheap, with airfare and everything, but they still saved a good bit of money.

 I’d go to a hotel website and see if they could give you some guidance – maybe you can pre-book a time look at packages, etc.  I mean I think you could do it on the spur of the moment – but that wouldn’t fit me personally.  I’d call ahead and at least try to get a reservation.
