Las Vegas can rightly claim to be the Wedding Capital of the World.
Sin City is known for weddings of all descriptions—from quick and hassle-free to over-the-top indulgence.
Themed weddings tied to seasonal occasions are among its most popular options, including spooky nuptials.
The destination even counts history’s most famous monsters among those who have wedded here: horror movies icons Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.
Halloween weddings are on the rise in this city of lights – and shadows. The Wedding Capital of the World caters to couples enchanted by dark themes. Check out some of the options:
Las Vegas Weddings features a “‘Til Death Do Us Part” package at Nelson Ghost Town—a real Old West ghost town at Southern Nevada’s most famous gold mine. The rustic spot features a large barn, where ghostly figures have been seen lurking. The special package includes an officiant and photographer attired all in black; 200-plus photos; special Halloween-themed ceremony, music, and the use of a coffin ring-bearer wedding box.
At The Little Vegas Chapel, the “Love at First Bite” package offered exclusively on Halloween includes a choice of officiants, including Elvira, the Corpse Bride, Darth Vader or a Vampire, as well as Halloween-themed florals, music, roundtrip limousine, photography and cake.
Sure Thing Chapel features After Dark packages that include Hellvis—Elvis’ evil twin, a blood-themed spooky burlesque show and Wine Hearse for photo ops. Happy couples and guests can even sip champagne served out of a hearse carrying a coffin.
With more than five million “I do’s” and counting, each year Las Vegas conducts more destination weddings than any other place on earth. For well over 70 years, a “Vegas wedding” has been the ultimate quick, stress-free, fun, glamorous wedding option.
