Ever fancied getting married in Las Vegas?
Travel Weekly and Attraction World are offering one couple a wedding in Las Vegas this year.
Just tell us why you want to tie the knot in the US city – and if you reach the final, prepare to have your reasons filmed and screened online so Travel Weekly readers can vote on a winner.
Why say your vows in Vegas?
“It’s a bit like a spiritual wedding,” said Attraction World sales and marketing director Tony Seaman, who tied the knot in Vegas ten years ago.
“There’s all types of weddings, from drive-throughs to getting married in a hot air balloon or having Elvis at your big day.”
There are lots of reasons why couples choose a Las Vegas wedding. Often it’s linked to the cost of UK ceremonies or because couples are getting married for a second time, he said.
“It only suits certain types of people at certain times but where it works is if you want something more personal with just a few close friends rather than a whole bunch of people attending.
“Las Vegas is just such a lively place with stage shows that are not shown anywhere else and great restaurants. It’s frantic but really exciting.”
As part of a standard wedding package couples enjoy a limousine transfer from their hotel to the licence office before proceeding to the chapel for the official wedding ceremony.
