Tickets are on sale now for the 70th Anniversary Celebration of The Wedding Capital of the World, taking place on Sunday, Sept. 3, at Caesars Palace.
Encompassing a mass wedding vow renewal, brunch, a wedding cake by Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro’s Carlo’s Bake Shop and an original vintage Vegas musical production, the event pays tribute to love and marriage as well as the more than 5 million couples who have married in Clark County.
In honor of the milestone, an original production show, titled “Las Vegas Will You Marry Me,” will debut for the hundreds of couples expected to attend and renew their vows. The stage spectacular will be hosted by Dennis Bono, recording artist and star of “The “Dennis Bono Show,” the weekly show which broadcasts worldwide from Michael Gaughan’s South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa. Written by Lorraine Hunt-Bono and Dennis Bono, produced by Pompey Entertainment and featuring the theme song written by noted composer Dan Slider, “Las Vegas Will You Marry Me” will offer a memorable, musical journey through Las Vegas’ seven decades of love stories.
“With thousands of couples from across the globe already expressing interest in attending the 70th Anniversary Celebration, we look forward to the monumental vow renewal event and debut of ‘Las Vegas Will You Marry Me,’” says Lynn Marie Goya, Clark County Clerk. “The celebration will truly be a once-in-a-century moment to spotlight Las Vegas as the world’s most desirable wedding destination and celebrate the millions of couples who have married here.”
The VIP Couples Package, priced at $170 per couple, includes brunch and participation in the mass vow renewal ceremony. General admission tickets are also available for $70 per person for friends and family members, as well for attendees of the production show.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, which provides youth with the help, hope and support needed to rebuild their lives.
Las Vegas’ status as the globe’s most desirable wedding location was first recognized on Sept. 23, 1953, when the London Daily Herald referred to it as the “Wedding Capital of the World” in an article about Las Vegas weddings. The destination went on to chart 1 million total weddings by 1974, 3 million weddings by 2000 and 5 million weddings on Feb. 20, 2022.
