‘Weddingmooning’ in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day

What’s a “weddingmoon?”  A weddingmoon is a new word for a growing trend to combine your solemn marriage weddingvows with the fun of the honeymoon.  Las Vegas, the destination wedding capital of the world, remains at the top of the weddingmoon list by offering sumptuous locations, unique ways to say your “I Do’s,” and cap it off with affordable reception celebrations.  And this year, with Valentine’s Day falling on a Saturday, the Las Vegas wedding chapels and locations are gearing up for extra business and starting to advertise many online specials and hotel combo discounts.  

 

If you want something kitschy, you could consider having your vows from the same Elvis impersonator who wed ‘Entourage’ star Kevin Dillon to actress Jane Stuart.  Or you could select a poolside wedding at the Bellagio and follow in the footsteps of “King of Queensactress Leah Remini and Angelo Pagan.  

 

However, more visitors are opting for a different view of the Las Vegas wedding this year- making it not just a location to visit, but their complete destination wedding spot.  And, if the Valley of Fire and Mount Charleston areas in Las Vegas aren’t the backdrop you’re looking for, you could trying look down instead – from the gondola of a hot air balloon during a sunrise or sunset marriage ceremony.

 

There are, of course, many stories of quick and failed marriages that line the chapel walls – Nicky Hilton and Todd Meister married at the Vegas Wedding Chapel on August 15, 2004 and just two months later the party was over.  Yet, successful unions have also begun along the Vegas Strip.  Look at the longevity of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward married at the El Rancho hotel-casino in 1958 or Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa who married May 1, 1996- at what Miss Ripa calls the “chapel of cheese”.

 

There is one thing to know if a Vegas weddingmoon is in your future:  At least one year before you plan your walk down the aisle bring some I.D. and $55 to the Las Vegas Marriage Bureau at 201 Clark Ave between the hours of 8am to 12am.  But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try now, but the earlier the better.  Because while you can gamble on everything from a horse race to your future 24×7 in Vegas, the county offices will be closed after midnight.
