For some couples, getting married is a solemn affair that takes place in their hometown church with hundreds of friends and family members in attendance. However, that kind of wedding isn’t for everyone. Sometimes, couples just want to celebrate their relationship with a few special guests, or they may even want to elope and have the ceremony alone. Las Vegas is known for having plenty of shotgun wedding parlours and you can have everything from a drive-through wedding to an officiant who is also an Elvis impersonator. Whatever your tastes and budget, Las Vegas can be a fun and exciting place to get married. Read on to learn about some of the most unusual ways to tie the knot.
