We're eloping. Can you provide a witness for our ceremony?
Just the two of you traveling to Las Vegas to say "I do"? The state of Nevada requires a witness for your Las Vegas ceremony to be legal, and we're happy to provide a witness upon request. Just let your planner know and we'll take care of this important detail at no charge!
When do I take care of the minister's fee?
After your ceremony you will meet with your minister again in the minister's office to discuss how you and your fiancé can obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate. You will have a chance to ask your minister any questions concerning the steps to take for changing your name and any other questions you might have. Once all of your questions have been answered, your minister will present you with an envelope for a minister fee. Your minister will then leave the room so that you can discreetly pay whatever amount you think is appropriate for their services. We recommend a fee of at least $70. Your minister will also personally deliver all of your documents to the Clark County Recorder's Office where your marriage will be legally documented.
I don't live in the United States. Will my ceremony video work when I take it home?
Yes, it will. All of our wedding ceremonies are recorded in regionless format so they should work in any country.
May I have an outdoor ceremony?
Yes. We provide many outside Las Vegas wedding venues, from the Gazebo on our grounds, to all the way at the Grand Canyon. In addition, our Glass Gardens is a beautiful space with the feeling of being outdoors, but is actually an indoor, climate controlled chapel, which makes it a perfect setting at any time of the year!
For our Gazebo, we schedule the ceremonies between 9am - 11am and after 8pm to avoid the other couples who have scheduled the grounds for photos and visiting with family and friends. We do not recommend more than 20 guests for the Gazebo, as it may be difficult for them to hear your ceremony. This area is lighted for your photos at night - you will even have the Stratosphere Tower in the background! In the Gazebo, potential fire hazards prevent us from performing a unity candle lighting ceremony. If your ceremony is scheduled in the Gazebo, we will also reserve the Victorian Chapel for you as a back-up in case of inclement weather.
If you would like videography for your Gazebo wedding, a videographer must be added to your Wedding Plan; this costs $200 on weekdays (Sun - Thurs) and $220 on weekends (Fri - Sat) and includes a copy of your ceremony video.
An outdoor ceremony in Las Vegas can be a beautiful event. Although we do not want to discourage the Las Vegas weddings outside on our grounds, we do want you to know what to expect. Many couples choose to get married in one of our beautiful indoor wedding chapels and then to have photos taken on the grounds or other off-site locations. Please speak with your Personal Wedding Planner regarding the details and any questions about outdoor ceremonies.
How can I get a live singer to perform at my ceremony?
We are happy to arrange a live singer for you, or you may make your own arrangements for a singer. If you do make your own arrangements, please let us know as soon as possible, as you may need to purchase extra time in the wedding chapel.
What is the First Look service?
Upon arriving at the wedding chapel, you and your fiancé will meet together with your minister, "day of" ceremony coordinator and photographer to go over any last minute details. If you wish to remain separated before the ceremony, you MUST pre-arrange our First Look Service. The Chapel must be prepared to keep you in different locations and ensure that you do not see one another before your reveal moment, just prior to or during your wedding ceremony. This is an optional upgrade, but it must be added and paid for prior to your ceremony.
Can you provide a wedding reception or celebration dinner after our ceremony?
We desire to make your Las Vegas wedding planning experience as easy on you as possible, and to do so we have partnered with some amazing reception venues and restaurants to assist you in planning your Las Vegas wedding reception or celebration dinner. Our off-site locations range from an upscale brewery or Mexican restaurant to private dining rooms in popular, award-winning restaurants. Any of these choices will provide you and your guests with a memorable reception to go along with your beautiful ceremony. Click here for more information or contact your Personal Wedding Planner.
I have found some coupons for different services at Chapel of the Flowers. How are these applied to my wedding plan?
Any coupons or discount offers must be presented at the time of your booking or before your final payment. Coupons and discounts will not be honored at a later date. Please email, fax or mail the coupon or discount offer to your wedding planner so it may be applied to your plan. Coupons can only be used towards additional wedding products or services. We cannot offer cash back.
Chapel of the Flowers does not sell or exchange personal consumer information with third parties.
Will you give us a copy of our Marriage Certificate before we leave?
You will be given a decorative souvenir copy of your marriage certificate before leaving the Chapel. The Minister that performs your ceremony legally has 10 business days to file the official documents with the County Recorder. Once filed, you can order a certified copy of the marriage certificate (required for legal purposes such as change of name, insurance coverage, etc.) directly from the County Recorder's Office at a cost of $15 per copy. (Price is subject to change. Please check the County Recorder's Office for updated pricing.) The County Recorder will then mail this to the address on your documents. Typically, you receive your Certified Copies within 3-4 weeks following the date that you place the order with the County Recorder’s Office. If you need to have proof of legal marriage faster, we do offer an Expedited Service that can rush the process and have the certified copy of your marriage certificate ready for pick up or mail within 3-4 business days following your ceremony. Please note that some countries will also require an apostille in conjunction with your certified copy; you may want to verify this with your local government agencies.
How do I get my marriage license?
The Clark County Marriage License Bureau at the Regional Justice Center (201 Clark Avenue) is about 12 blocks from our chapel towards downtown Las Vegas. The cost is $77. (Price effective as of August 2015 and is subject to change.) This must be paid in cash. The two of you need to be together, and you both need to have picture identification showing that you are over 18. We suggest that you get this at least the day prior to the wedding. The marriage license is valid up to one year from the issue date. You can find driving directions posted on our website here. To fill out your application to get married in Las Vegas ahead of time, go to www.accessclarkcounty.com and click on "Get a Marriage License" under the “Popular Services” menu. From there, you can select a link to take you to the application, which you can print, fill out and bring with you to the Marriage License Bureau. We cannot perform your legal marriage ceremony unless you have a valid Clark County Marriage License presented to your officiant at the time of your ceremony.
You must have a Nevada State Marriage License prior to your wedding in Las Vegas and provide it at the time of your ceremony, or at your consultation. We are unable to perform a legally binding wedding without a Nevada State Marriage License. If you do not have a Nevada State Marriage License prior to your ceremony, your ceremony will be cancelled, moved to a later time (pending your purchase of a Nevada State Marriage License), or performed as a non-legally binding "Commitment Ceremony", based on availability. Keep in mind, the next available time may be the following day. Please review our Rescheduling and Cancellation policies.
RENEWAL OF VOWS: Vow Renewals in Las Vegas do not require a marriage license, but you will be asked to prove you are legally married.
Can you take us to get our marriage license?
Yes! Talk to your Personal Wedding Planner about our VIP Consultation Service. For just $85, you will be picked up at your hotel, brought to the wedding chapel for a personal consultation and tour of our wedding chapel in Las Vegas, and taken to the Regional Justice Center to obtain your marriage license. Please note that the VIP Consultation Service does not include the cost of the marriage license itself.
*It is necessary to contact your planner to schedule a VIP Consultation Service. This service is available Monday - Friday, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM and Saturday - Sunday, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
If you are not able to use the VIP Consultation Service, you must be sure to get your marriage license on your own, in advance of preparing for your arrival at the Chapel for your ceremony. This will help assure that your ceremony begins on time. Your wedding planner would be more than happy to assist you with directions and information about what is required at the Regional Justice Center.
