Marriage License Information
In order for your marriage to be legally recognized, applicants will need a Las Vegas Marriage License which must be obtained prior to your wedding. To obtain your marriage license, both parties must fill out an online application (HERE) and then appear in person before the Clerk at the Clark County Marriage Bureau location (see locations listed below).

A marriage license allows a couple to marry in the state of Nevada. It is not proof of marriage. A licensed wedding officiant must perform Vegas weddings. Your license must be presented before the ceremony can begin

A marriage license is issued the same day a couple applies

  • There is no waiting period to get married after the marriage license has been issued.
