When thinking about a Las Vegas wedding, you probably think of a spur-of-the-moment elopement at a chapel attached to the casino. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with the classic Vegas wedding setup. But for couples that want something a little bit more traditional and away from the casinos, Las Vegas has some incredible options.
What’s great about Las Vegas is that it’s a destination city, not only for bachelorette parties but for weddings too. In 2021, almost 84,000 weddings occurred in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, and it’s still a major destination for couples to host their nuptials. With an average wedding cost of $25,374, it’s on the lower end of wedding prices.
