    I welcomed a conference to Las Vegas several years ago and included some fun facts on the area in my remarks. I don’t recall the number I used then, but updated it’s approximately 300 ceremonies per day! That just blows me away!
    Congratulations to all!!!

    My other favorite one is the 60,000 lbs of shrimp consumed daily in Las Vegas.

My husband and I had never been to Vegas before. (we now have 40+ trips) Once a year we walk through the gardens of the Flamingo to reminisce. Family still talks about the great time they had.

    Graceland wedding chapel for us too, with the same Elvis! He was great and his voice was incredible. We were there to renew vows for our 20th, that was 5 years ago.

    We got married in the summer of 2,000 at 'a Special Memory' chapel downtown. We had planned it in advance and flown in from overseas to do so. We stayed at the Holiday Inn before marrying, and then at the Luxor in a suite after marrying. The Luxor was a much newer property back then. We got married in the morning at 11am with our best man and bridesmaid there, and then had a nice wedding late lunch at the Stratosphere revolving type restaurant up top. The limo picked us up and drove us there and then on to the restaurant afterwards. The celebrant also did Elvis weddings so he had a kind of Elvis vibe/look about him, even though our's wasn't an Elvis wedding. I think (from memory) that he had some Elvis Weddings to do later that day after ours. We were really happy with the whole service, price and experience. Video, photos/negatives, flowers, champagne all included. It allowed us to save so much money that could be used for other things. Later that evening, we were gambling on the strip in our suit and dress. Oh it was hot weather, I remember that part.

    So the Vegas trip became part of our honeymoon as well. We also visited the Grand Canyon and California etc. We did a larger post-wedding reception back in Japan where we were living at the time, a month later after our return, which we had also planned in advance. We also did that in a way that didn't cause us to have to go into debt or blow huge amounts of money. Better to save it for the house deposit we figured. Best decision we ever made. Well, most importantly, I am thankful to say that we are still happily married 19 years later. We intend to renew our vows over there again at the same chapel, once our old much loved pet dog (now aged 15), who requires one of us to always be home to care for her, has passed. Luckily our occupations allow us to work from home so this is doable. Congratulations to any others who also got married in Vegas! I am so glad that we did it that way.
