How To Get Married in Las Vegas?


To get to Las Vegas for many women specially Asians is a dream come true. But to get married in Las Vegas?

It took me sometime to write this article as I was still busy with my Photography business. Now that I have plenty of time, there is no reason not to share this with everyone.

I am from the Philippines, I live in Singapore for 20 over years, I came to Singapore when I was 21 years old.

I also get married here in Singapore. Singapore is also one of the most country where many couple want to get married to due to its beauty. ( I will write a separate article about how you can get married in Singapore).



It was 2013 that we went to Las Vegas with my Husband Markus. He is Austrian. We met in Singapore  and get married in Singapore back in 2005.

On our 10 years anniversary, we plan to visit America. We flew to Hawaii and spend 2 weeks in Hawaii particularly in Waikiki Beach.

After 2 weeks in Hawaii we then went to  Las Vegas with stop over in New York via Delta Airlines.

You will see a lot of SurfBoards and many sexy suborders in Waikiki beach


So here we finally arrive in Las Vegas Airport.  At the airport, there were few slots machines. Well, you never get bored if you are waiting for your flights in Las Vegas Airport.


From Hawaii to last vegas via Delta Airlines

There were many taxi waiting for passengers at the front of Las Vegas Airport arrival building. So nothing to worry about getting to your hotel.

We had a car arrange to pick up us by our hotel.


For example… taxi driver, the person who opens the door, whatever it is. I was complaining a lot because in Asia, we do not practice tipping here. Unless the person does a very good job, then we will give TIP as only as much as we want.


It is a must to give tips and they can tell you how much they deserve. It is from 18 to 30 percent of your total bill.  I would not mind tipping these people if they are doing the good service, but some are rude and bring us the wrong order.

Tipping is not an obligation to a customers. In America is not the case. It is the customers problem.

As for the taxi driver, I don’t understand why we have to give 20 percent on top of bill. If you are on a tight budget, there are many public transport around Las Vegas. Tour bus, Bus where the local commute or just walk. Las Vegas Strips is not that far to walk.

Here is my Video about what is happening in Las Vegas even as early as 9 am. Yeah! 9 am is already party time. People do not sleep.


It is not difficult as you think it is. If you plan ahead of time before heading to Las Vegas, contact your hotel and tell them about your plan. They will actually arrange for you.

You may like to check this site as they plan for you and you can customise too.


Alternatively there are many website that you can check. We have arrange our wedding on the day of our Wedding Anniversary and it went just fine. Because when you are there in Las Vegas, you can still have plenty of churches to choose from. Just in case you change your mind you know?

For us, we were just talking about having a 10 years wedding anniversary celebration by going to America and we may want to have a special anniversary by renewing our vows.

As for the cost, will vary from company to another.


Many wedding chapel in Las Vegas, do not be confuse as wedding ceremony in Las Vegas is a huge business.

There are few things you need to remember:

You will pay for the person who look like Elvis who does the ceremony of about $400 USD. Yes, for just 5 to 8 minutes ceremony.

You will pay for your limousine and give tips to your driver. I think its fair. Our Driver was wonderful older age man who tells us more about weeding in Las Vegas. He is also our photographer using my mobile phones.

The cost of getting married in Las Vegas may have been higher by today as I wrote this blog  (February 2017). I would say,  you would have a budget between  USD 1,000 to USD 1,500 for the wedding chapel, ceremony and the driver that pick you up from the hotel.

All in all process, I would say about 1 hour, from pick up at your hotel if you stay at Las Vegas Strip North or South.

We then as our nice driver to bring us to Wynn hotel and Casino. This hotel is just across where our hotel is located.Wynn Hotel at Las Vegas Nevada

Wynn Hotel at the barI love Wynn Hotel. Almost every night we go to the bar. I am fascinated with the beauty of this hotel.  You can check the price of this hotel.

After the ceremony, we went to our favourite bar.

The next time I am in Vegas, I will chose to stay in Wynn. We stayed at Treasure Island as we have book this while we plan our trip.  Wynn has a better atmosphere to be hones. 

Staying in within Las Vegas strip will give you convenience to go anywhere specially when you like to walk a lot.

Walking at night is wonderful. So may shows to see.

Here is the list of popular hotels in Las Vegas

Here what you can do if you only have little time in Istanbul..

From 2 weeks adventure in Kilimanjaro we were heading home back to Singapore with Turkish Airlines.

Before I continue with out stop over in Istanbul….

Turkish Airlines, fly from Singapore to any parts of the world. I notice that Turkish Airlines has a very reasonable rates comparing with other big airlines.

The flights from Singapore to Istanbul were very much comfortable.

Before we proceed our trip to Kilimanjaro from Singapore, we head back home to my husband home town in Volarberg Austria.  Just next to the border of Lichtenstein (Switzerland Border)

We were very please with the service on board Turkish Airline, both long and short flights. Hot super delicious meals were serve as well as fine drinks.

What’s more, you can earn miles too with Turkish Airlines.

We had a 12 hour stop over in Istanbul…

before we could proceed our flight to Singapore.  We plan it this way so that I could at least visit the city of Istanbul in Turkey.

We had landed at the airport about 11 am  at Ataturk  International Airlport (Turkish Time ) from Kilimanjaro.

What you do with you hand laggage?

We had our boarding pass already.. However, we decided to inform the airlines that we will be going to the city.

Inside Ataturk International Airlport, you will find a place to change currency as well as to leave your heavy hand luggage (specially when they are on rollers).

It is safe to leave your luggage and other things you do not want to carry around with you when you go for a city day tour trip in Istanbul.

You would pay about 25 Turkish currency which is very much reasonable. They lock your deposits and hand you over the key with a number tag.

From the airport…

We took a train, it was free a ride from the airport to the city. When we arrive at the central station, we had change our train and head down to the strait market, food street, famous bazaar etc. With the city train, you need to buy the train ticket at the small kiosk or machine along the railway which is pretty much organize.

However, you can just walk within the city center.  There are tourist busses (double decker) along the street looking out for customers. Be careful of the people right in-front of the bus tour, they give you a very high price. Best is to buy your ticket at the main station or ask for the driver.

When we arrived, it was lunch time. We were very hungry and we dive in food stall along the street.

Food in Istanbul city center are everywhere. See my video below

After lunch, we walk towards Grand Bazaar- here I lost my $100 bill hidden inside my pocket. Amazing… People can be so good at pick pocketing. In anywhere in the world, with a super busy place, you are in danger of pickpockets.

Grand Bazaar market, you can buy all sorts of stuff, from gold to a antique turkish desigb plate, art, carpet, rugs, linens and a lot of things you can find here.

From grand bazaar, we walk down to where you can see the Europe and the Asia side right by the water of Istanbul city.

You can rent or ride a boat and it was very reasonable and comforble ride. Inside the ferry boat, we were drinking Turkish tea.  You must try Turkish Tea when you are in Turkey.

The ride took about 2 hours, as it cruises along the river under the bridge of Bhosporus.

It was fascinating to see so many of the houses, restuarants and some other boats by the river as we were cruising around.

It’s like a movie… a real movie.. real life.

After the ride, it was dark, it’s time to have some nice turkish food once again.

My video is below for you to see it live…
