Las Vegas isn’t known as the Wedding Capital of the World for no reason. Clark County estimates that it issued 79,279 marriage licenses in 2022 alone. The reason? It’s easy. Couples must appear at the Clark County Marriage Bureau together. Couples must be 18 or older, and no blood test is required. Marriage licenses cost $102. Just head to the Regional Justice Center at 201 E. Clark Ave. and it’s as good as done. From there, it’s just a matter of where to get married. Make it an unusual and memorable spot by heading to one of these restaurants or bars to tie the knot — or to celebrate with a special reception.Read More
Memorable Restaurant Settings for a Wedding in Las Vegas
These restaurants (and bars) will make you wedding memorable
It can be tricky to have a wedding on the water in Las Vegas, but this elegant French restaurant is located right on Lake Jaqueline in Summerlin. Choose to host your ceremony or reception either inside the dining room, in front of windows that overlook the lake, or reserve the patio to enjoy the outdoors. Choose a bottle (or several!) from the merchant space inside and settle in for a brunch, lunch, or dinner of classic French fare.
Barry's Downtown Prime
This downtown steak restaurant has seven boldly decorated rooms for hosting up to 350 people. For a gathering of up to 12 people, choose the Chef’s Table and gather around a large white marble table in a wood-paneled dining room. For larger celebrations, reserve the Garden Room, with a tree at the center, decked in lanterns. Celebrate your union over rib cap steak, Dover sole, lobster mac and cheese, and baked Alaska.
For a romantic and throwback-style wedding, visit Hugo’s Cellar. Open since the ‘70s, this steakhouse rents out rooms starting at $600. With red brick walls, wooden ceilings, and a rose on every table, the steakhouse makes for an intimate setting for your wedding or dinner reception. The dining room includes a bar so you can include dinner, dessert, and cocktails in your celebration.
Eiffel Tower Restaurant
Say, “I do” with a view from 110 feet above the Las Vegas Strip at Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas. For around $1,700, invite 24 of your closest friends to join you and your betrothed for a ceremony in the restaurant’s salon prive, overlooking the Vegas skyline. Then enjoy your first dinner as newlyweds with a wedding menu of Chef J. Joho’s updated classic French cuisine.
Mon Ami Gabi
With a patio that overlooks the Fountains at Bellagio, it's hard to beat Mon Ami Gabi for romance. Located inside the Paris Las Vegas, this French restaurant offers two private dining rooms and one semi-private glass-enclosed pavilion that opens up to the patio for your intimate wedding. Design a party menu for a morning breakfast buffet, a coursed brunch menu, a light lunch, or a three-course dinner option of melted brie, filet mignon, and chocolate mousse.
Minus5° Ice Lounge
Ensure that all your guests have goosepumps when you deliver your vows by tying the knot inside Minus5 Ice Bar at Mandalay Place. Your wedding will be at minus five degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) and all the faux fur jackets or parkas, gloves, and snow boots are provided. Include a beverage package or a selection of hours d’oeuvres and desserts.
For a whisky-filled Irish wedding, Rí Rá at Mandalay Place hosts events that include special menus inspired by traditional Irish cuisine. Go simple with hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail reception or a full-course dinner in the bar’s theater or parlour room. Additionally, guests can hire the pub’s wedding coordinator to plan all the details for your special day. And, yes, you can order Irish dancers for entertainment.
