Romantic couples often run off to Las Vegas for a quick marriage, leading to the city officially dubbing itself the Wedding Capital of the World. In fact, the county reckons it issues some 80,000 marriage licenses annually. It seems the city is taking advantage of this fact and inbound fliers will be able to get their marriage license on arrival at the airport. This might sound strange, but Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya is opening a pop-up Marriage License Bureau at the busy Harry Reid International Airport. Romantic couples can get their license at the airport from December 26 through December 31, then enter the city to wed.

It’s always fun to run off to Sin City and try your luck at the tables and on the machines, but Las Vegas is also famous for weddings. Standing before an Elvis look-alike in a chapel is one of the popular ways to quickly tie the knot.

As many people take advantage of the city to get married and have a romantic vacation, the county issues some 80,000 marriage licenses each year. In fact, it is known to be the busiest in the world when it comes to issuing licenses. For this reason, it was decided to open up the pop-up Marriage License Bureau at the Harry Reid International Airport. From December 26 through December 31, anyone who wants to tie the knot can apply there for a license to wed.

One major reason for the pop-up Marriage License Bureau is the fact that New Year’s Eve has a rare and unique numerical sequence – 1-2-3-1-2-3. According to experts, this is considered to be an especially appealing wedding date.

According to Clark County officials, chapels in the city are already experiencing high bookings for that date. However, this isn’t something unique, as apparently, this marks the fifth time the Clerk’s Office has opened a pop-up Marriage License Bureau at Harry Reid.

Reportedly, the Marriage License Bureau pop-up will be found in Terminal 1 near to baggage claim. The office is set to open daily from 8 am to 5 pm and will issue marriage licenses and vow renewal certificates. Moreover, payment will be accepted with credit or debit card payments.

Clark County Clerk Goya explained the process, saying:

We always strive to make the process as easy as possible for couples, and bringing the pop-up marriage license bureau to the airport streamlines the process for couples allowing them more time to experience Las Vegas’ wonderful New Year’s Eve excitement. New Year’s Eve is already one of Las Vegas’ most popular wedding dates and adding the magic date of 1-2-3-1-2-3 gives couples even more to celebrate on this historic night.

Engaged couples can complete a marriage license pre-application on the County Clerk’s website at weddings.vegas. Once the application is complete, the couple will receive a reference number to show to the Deputy Clerk at any branch of the Marriage License Bureau. Bear in mind that couples must present identification, such as a passport or driver’s license. Meanwhile, the cost of a marriage license is $102.

When visiting the weddings.vegas website, it is clear how popular Las Vegas is for weddings as the home page boasts, “Five Million Love Stories & Counting.” Those are pretty good odds!

Once complete, couples head into the city and visit their preferred wedding chapel to officially tie the knot. Then it’s time to enjoy everything the city has to offer for a New Year’s honeymoon, or simply head straight to their hotel.
