How to elope in Las Vegas

Your Las Vegas elopement doesn’t have to be all lights, gambling, and Elvis Presley impersonators—our favorite venues for eloping in Vegas are outdoors and absolutely stunning! Be it the red rock of Valley of Fire or the historic vibe of Nelson Ghost Town, there are so many options that allow you to enjoy the glitz and glam of the Las Vegas Strip and the natural landscape that surrounds Sin City.

Read on for our favorite small wedding venues in Vegas, to see how much a Vegas elopement will cost you, and all the other details you need for planning the perfect Las Vegas wedding. If you’re even considering eloping in Vegas, this guide is for you.

What are the best places to elope in Las Vegas?

Because there are so many options, it can be a challenge to figure out where to elope in Las Vegas. Our personal preference is looking outside of the strip and the chapels for a Vegas desert wedding.

Valley of Fire State Park
Just a short drive from Las Vegas you’ll find Nevada’s oldest park, the 40,000-acre Valley of Fire. We love this elopement location for its red sandstone outcrops with gray and tan limestone rocks, all of which make for extraordinary wedding photos. The park also contains ancient, petrified trees and petroglyphs dating back more than 2,000 years. If you’re looking to host a small wedding in Las Vegas, this location typically allows up to 50 guests but due to Covid-19, that number is currently capped at 16. Permits are required for this location.

Nelson Ghost Town
Elope in an abandoned gold mine town, complete with an old gas station, wooden buildings, antique cars, and old machines scattered throughout the property. Although you can elope wherever you want in town, we recommend committing to each other under the stained glass pergola among the cacti on the town’s edge. Although typically up to 26 guests are allowed at this location, that number has been reduced to 16 due to Covid-19. Do note, the paths here are rocky but easily maneuverable.

The Retreat on Charleston Peak
This small hotel has a peaceful outdoor terrace with canyon and mountain views perfect for your Vegas elopement. Although it’s beautiful year round, even with snow, this mountain location offers a great escape from the heat of Las Vegas summers. The allowed number of guests ranges from 10-40 depending on which package you choose, although with Covid-19, that number is capped at 16.

Springs Preserve
Just three miles from downtown Vegas, this 180-acre attraction has a museum, concert venue, walking trails, and historic photo gallery. The venue also offers a desert botanical garden, filled with lots of small enclaves perfect for your intimate wedding ceremony. A cultural institution designed to commemorate Las Vegas’ dynamic history, this venue is currently closed due to Covid-19.

When is the best time of year to elope in Vegas?

Some tourist destinations have peak and shoulder seasons, but Las Vegas is the exception to this rule. Vegas is busy year-round, so any time of year is a good time to elope in Vegas. Winter—from the end of December through March—will always be milder in weather, so if you’re not a fan of the super hot, this is a great time of year to visit Vegas. Summer days can get incredibly hot, so if you choose to elope during this season, we recommend staying somewhere with access to a pool.

What time of day should you elope in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas can get hot and we aren’t talking about the casino floor. No matter what time of year you’re planning to elope in Vegas, we highly recommend choosing either early/late morning or early evening for your ceremony time. Daytime temps in the summer can be unbearable for more than fifteen minutes, with peak temperatures ranging from 90-110-degrees. The direct sun in the afternoon creates harsh shadows which aren’t flattering for your portraits. In addition, you don’t want to roast in the hot desert on your wedding day! We definitely recommend shooting for the hours with soft light and gentle sun.

How much does it cost to elope in Las Vegas?

You may notice that hotels do charge extra, sometimes double, for Friday and Saturdays so if you’re looking to save a couple of bucks, elope during the week instead of the weekend. That being said, there are always deals to be had in Las Vegas, so definitely shop around. Staying just off the main strip or on the old strip will also save you money.

Although it’s not necessary to rent a car while in Vegas you’ll still want to factor in the cost of Lyfts and Ubers. And if you’re planning on eloping at Valley of Fire State Park, definitely ask your driver to wait until your ceremony is over or consider hiring a car—although it’s easy to book a ride out to the park, it can be near impossible to catch one heading back to town.

Our Las Vegas elopement packages run from $400 for our most basic ceremony (tailored location advice, a custom wedding script, and the enactment of the ceremony itself) to $3,800 for our top package (which includes photography, videography, flowers, hair and makeup, and a day of helper). In between, we offer a variety of elopement packages at every price point, with a ton of flexibility as well as à la carte options. We highly recommend booking Las Vegas elopement packages that are all inclusive since booking all services together tends to be more cost-efficient than booking individually.

How do I make sure my Las Vegas elopement is legal?

Las Vegas is one of the easiest places on the planet to obtain a marriage license! All you’ll need is a form of identification, such as a driver’s License, military ID, or passport, as well as $77. If either of you were previously married, you’ll need the date your divorce as well as the city and state your divorce decree was filed in.

Do you need a witness to marry in Las Vegas?

You’ll need at least one witness present at your ceremony, which your photographer can easily act as (since your officiant cannot also act as a witness).

Can you just walk into a chapel in Vegas and get married?

As soon as you get your marriage license, you can immediately get married in Las Vegas! So yes, technically there are chapel’s you can just walk into, but where’s the fun in that? Ensure your Vegas elopement stands out from the millions of others by choosing to say “I Do” at one of our awe-inspiring outdoor locations.

Where should I stay for my Las Vegas elopement?

Every hotel and casino has a completely different vibe, so where you stay will depend on who you are as a couple! Of course, your budget will also be a factor. Still, you can’t go wrong with something classic like Caesars Palace or the luxe, modern Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

How far in advance should I start planning my Las Vegas elopement?

Las Vegas is known for spontaneous elopements, so feel free to plan with as little advanced notice as a week. In general, however, we see most of our couples planning with three to nine months advance notice, especially because there are more aspects of planning than just your elopement ceremony. You’ll need to determine where you’ll be staying, how to get to Las Vegas, and what kinds of concerts or activities you’ll be doing while you’re in the area. If you’re a real planner, we can book you as far as a few years in advance. No matter the timeline of your Vegas elopement, we can accommodate.

How do I find the right Las Vegas elopement vendors?

We contract with the best Las Vegas elopement photographers in the business, so you’ve come to the right place! Since Las Vegas is the hometown of elopements, there is a whole range of styles and types of elopement vendors. Once you are assigned one of our vendors, they’ll reach out and you can get to know one another, planning your ideal ceremony together. If you’d rather take a hands off approach, our vendors are veterans of the business and have no problem taking the reins. Often, your vendors will become your best resources on all things Las Vegas.

It’s No Secret…

Traditional weddings are incredibly expensive and can take years to plan. When couples choose to elope, their ceremonies can be planned quickly at a fraction of the cost. But don’t take our word for it!

Thank you, Simply Eloped, for the perfect day!
