Picture this: a sleek vintage black Cadillac pulls up to the chapel, the engine’s purr punctuating the excitement in the air. The car door opens, revealing a couple dressed in their finest, hearts racing with anticipation. No, this isn’t a scene from a Hollywood rom-com – it’s the drive-thru wedding service at A Little White Wedding Chapel!

Yes, you heard that right. The chapel offers an unforgettable drive-thru wedding experience that’s equal parts quirky and romantic. Couples can exchange vows and rings from the comfort of their own car, the backseat of the Chapel’s pink Cadillac, or a car that you can rent from a vintage car rental service (like this one!). It’s like a fast-food joint for lovebirds, serving up life-long commitment with a side of convenience. If you’ve ever dreamed of getting hitched in a hurry, without leaving the comfort of your car, this is the place to make that dream come true.

This isn’t just any car – it’s a symbol of classic Americana, a slice of nostalgia that adds an extra layer of magic to your special day.

Not only are you having your ceremony performed under the iconic drive-thru awning of the chapel, you’re saying your vows while seating inside the Pink Caddy, and you can even have Elvis perform your ceremony for you.

How to Plan Your Wedding or Elopement at A Little White Wedding Chapel

As you’ve probably realized from all the info above, planning your perfect wedding or elopement at A Little White Wedding Chapel is a breeze. Here is a step-by-step guide to planning your perfect wedding day:

  1. Contact the chapel and secure your wedding date. You want to make sure your venue is available before booking anything else. This way, you won’t have to change dates or details with other vendors in the event the chapel is unavailable. (Bonus photography tip: Us photographers LOVE evening time for lighting. The ideal ceremony time will always be about 2 hours before sunset. Keep this in mind when choosing a ceremony start time.)
  2. Pre-register for your marriage license on the Clark County Marriage License Website. Once you apply, you’ll have 1 year to come to Las Vegas and get hitched. Check out this article for more info on how to obtain a marriage license in Las Vegas.
  3. Book your preferred vendors. Now that you have your wedding date secured with the chapel, you’re able to start booking all your additional vendors like photography, floral, hair and makeup, and transportation. Each of your vendors can help you refine the details of your big day, and help craft a timeline of the day with you.
  4. Book your travel. Airfare, hotel, and transportation are all obvious givens. Consider booking a fancy dinner or small reception space as well during your trip. You can also look into ending your big day with a Vegas show. The possibilities are endless in Sin City.
  5. Confirm Details with your vendors. As your big day draws closer, confirm all of the details and start times of your big day with all of your vendors.

When You Arrive in Las Vegas:

  1. Pick up your marriage license. You’ll both need to be present for this. Make sure you’ve brought a government-issued ID with you.
  2. Hair and Make-up Trial: If you’ve arrived in Las Vegas a few days earlier than your wedding day, this is a great opportunity to have your hair and makeup trial with your vendor. This is a service that most hair and makeup companies offer, and is well worth looking into!

If you follow this list, you’ll have a seamless experience that is stress-free and above all: FUN!
