A chauffeured limousine will take them to the Las Vegas Marriage Bureau and back to the hotel with chic.

Let the celebrations begin right in the black stretch limo! After you sign and secure your marriage license, you can immediately start celebrating inside the limo which is equipped with ice water, beer, and hard liquor together with drinking glasses and music. Those newlyweds who might feel nervous on the way to the courthouse can relax afterwards and enjoy spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip on returning to the hotel.

4. Visit the Beauty Salon at Bellagio

 5. Wedding Gown -- Handle with Care!

If you travel to Las Vegas together with your wedding dress think about how it will be packed and handled. If you travel first-class your gown will hung in the cabin closet during the trip. Once you are at the hotel your wedding dress will be handled with greater care. At Bellagio there is the bride's preparation room featuring a well-lighted mirror and a private bathroom, and the room is stocked with numerous hooks to hang a long wedding gown and the veil.

Besides two wedding chapels there is an anteroom where guests gather before the ceremony. Each chapel can be adorned according to the couple's taste and preferences. For traditional Jewish ceremonies the chuppah (wedding canopy) is used and it can be decorated with flowers to match the bride's bouquet and the groom's boutonniere.

7. Recite the Wedding Vows

The traditional and indispensible part of any wedding is the exchange of vows in front of family and friends. As with all Las Vegas wedding venues, the chapel at Bellagio provides the services of an officiant. The bride and groom can consult with theirs beforehand and ask him to customize the service for those relatives and friends who would be unable to witness the happy event.
