Step 1: The prerequisites for having a wedding in Las Vegas

Very, very easy. That's what it's like to get married in Vegas. No blood tests, no waiting period. The only problem is if you are already married (which is not cool, folks!) or if you try to marry a family member (for love, right). It is worth mentioning, that both things are totally illegal as well.

If you are over 18 years old and are within the legality conditions described above (rs), you can apply to get married there. To obtain a marriage license in Clark County (where Las Vegas is), you must appear in person with the Department of Marriages, either downtown or at one of the outlying offices.

In addition, the application must include two unrelated persons who are at least 18 years of age. Documents proving your name and age will be required.

So don't forget to bring your passport. Have you ever been married but divorced? Okay, if that's the case, you can get married in Vegas. However, you must bring a document that proves the separation as well.

Step 2: Discover what a Las Vegas wedding is really like
