It wouldn’t be Vegas without marriage opportunities folded into the resorts, restaurants, attractions and wild frays of the city. Each offering is perfect for a Las Vegas elopement, whether the planning is spur-of-a-moment or a well-executed scheme.

Note: A Las Vegas elopement is only legal with a marriage license. Read more on obtaining a Clark County marriage license before the festivities kick off.

Make It Once-In-A-Lifetime

Allegiant Stadium

Who doesn’t want a cheerleading squad to hype up the vows? A private ceremony at Allegiant Stadium is every sports lover’s dream. Raider fans and football aficionados receive a champagne toast and surround-sound treatment, with add-ons including Raiderette appearances and a slideshow broadcast of the event.

EDC

When it comes to Vegas elopements, neon nuptials are the way to go. Some planning goes into a festival wedding, but it’s well worth keeping a secret. 

In 2024, couples can get married at EDC in a ceremony fit for two at either the Techno Chapel or the Nature Chapel. Souvenirs, personalized music and much-needed complimentary locker use are all included in an EDC wedding package.

Helicopter Tours

Plan your marriage at the edge of the Grand Canyon. A helicopter ceremony will whisk you away to picturesque locations to elope — or you exchange vows in the chopper itself. Available through companies like Maverick Helicopters and Papillion, among other Vegas-based tour companies.

Rock ‘N’ Roll Chapel

If lace and florals aren’t your thing, there’s a rockin’ alternative. The KISS Rock N Roll Wedding Chapel inside The Rio All-Suite Hotel caters to the rock star souls wanting to “Love It Loud” on a whim — and a budget.

The Mob Museum

A ceremony at downtown’s famous Mob Museum is the perfect chance to sneak away for an ultra-private wedding. With their most intimate ceremony offerings including no more than four guests, a mobster-inspired event is an essential choice for history buffs and vintage Vegas fans.

Adrenaline Mountain

Nothing says “eloping in Vegas” like exploding vehicles. Located near the Seven Magic Mountains on the outskirts of the city, Adrenaline Mountain offers extreme ceremony activities for the bold and brave — including blowing up cars — to cinch the deal.

Choose An Underwater Adventure

Shark Reef Aquarium

Mandalay Bay Resort is home to several picturesque venues, perfect for tying the knot. One of its wonders is Shark Reef Aquarium, with a tiny venue space for peak privacy. Get ready to get hitched under the tunnel of sea life.

Silverton Aquarium Tank

You can’t get into the water at Shark Reef — but at Silverton Casino, it’s encouraged. Submerge underwater and say “I do” through scuba gear for an aquatic arrangement.

All Things Wacky and Whimsical

Eiffel Tower

When an elopement demands a classic setting, couples can head to the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower. Exchange vows with views of the hot air balloon, and enjoy a beautiful meal of French cuisine and photo keepsakes.

Planet 13

Get hitched with the “upscale intimate trippy wedding” you never knew you wanted. Known as “the largest dispensary in the world,” Planet 13 hosts ceremonies inside its onsite grow house, or within the dispensary itself.

A Gondola At The Venetian

The world-famous replicas of Venice gondolas are the height of luxury — perfect for a getaway elopement. Known as the Italian getaway of the Strip, The Venetian’s bespoke wedding packages cater to couples that want to elope in Vegas while keeping romance at the forefront.

Say I Do In The Clouds

The LINQ High Roller

Giant pods overlooking the Strip are an ideal way to tie the knot up in the sky. At The LINQ High Roller, a private ceremony at 550 feet in the air includes champagne and commemorative flutes, with a private banquet reception option.

Chapel In The Clouds — And More

For a less mobile choice that still offers unbeatable views, The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod features two bespoke chapels for elopements and ceremonies alike. For added aesthetics, a private balcony ceremony on Level 112 brings a touch of danger to the event.

A Delicious Wedding Day

Taco Bell Cantina

The Strip’s famous Taco Bell is a spontaneous elopement spot, with same-day bookings available up to four hours in advance. A quick ceremony in custom TBell merch complements the bouquet of sauce packet flowers. Don’t forget your marriage license for this one!

Hard Rock Cafe

Take your elopement to Hard Rock Cafe for a delicious rock-and-roll-themed ceremony. Commemorate the day with professional photographs, flower arrangements and ever-coveted free t-shirts for the wedding couple.

Denny’s

Nothing says “holy matrimony” like a pancake wedding cake and two Grand Slams. A ceremony at Denny’s is perfect for couples looking to keep it casual at the breakfast chain’s Fremont Street location.

Sugar Factory

A sweet escape awaits for guests looking for a touch of wonder. A Sugar Factory wedding takes care of the minutiae of a ceremony for a Las Vegas elopement, including floral arrangements and a photographer. With several meal options for the reception in lieu of a Candyland theme, this option is highly recommended for couples with young children in attendance.
