The city of Las Vegas has unveiled a new set of banners downtown to celebrate the city’s thriving wedding industry on “Wedding Row.” Wedding Row encompasses several chapels as well as the Clark County Marriage License Bureau, located at 201 E. Clark Ave. Wedding Row follows the previous launch of the Restaurant Row @ Carson Ave. and Brewery Row in downtown Las Vegas.
The 12 colorful banners that hang from downtown light posts feature happy couples tying the knot in Las Vegas and are located downtown where there are multiple chapels offering a plethora of ways to get hitched.
“We are beyond excited to present Wedding Row as a charming addition to downtown Las Vegas,” said Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman. “It honors our city’s history and the wedding industry in every way. I can’t wait to see all that Wedding Row has in store as we celebrate being the ‘Wedding Capital of the World.’”
Tourists make up about 80 percent of marriage licenses issued in Southern Nevada, according to the Marriage License Bureau. In February 2022, the county issued its 5-millionth marriage license.
“We are very excited to see Wedding Row come to fruition,” said Carl Bates, Assistant Clark County Clerk. “This project is a successful collaborative effort with the city of Las Vegas and will go a long way to help recognize how instrumental the wedding chapel industry has been in establishing Las Vegas as the Wedding Capital of the World.”
The Marriage License Bureau, a division of the Clark County Clerk’s Office, issued more than 77,000 marriage licenses in 2021, making it the most popular wedding destination in the world. The wedding industry accounts for four percent of all visitors coming to Clark County, including couples and guests. Annually, wedding tourism in Clark County generates $2.5 billion in economic activity, including lodging, entertainment, dining and other non-gaming activities.
