*IMPORTANT PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT*
On Saturday, January 21, 2017, the County will be performing a major systems upgrade that may affect our ability to service customers. We are strongly encouraging customers to come on the Thursday or Friday prior for all marriage and business services. While we hope to be fully operational on Saturday, January 21, 2017, there is potential for an impact in our ability to service customers. If you cannot avoid coming in on Saturday, January 21, 2017 for a marriage license, be advised that you should have cash available to complete your transaction as the credit card system may not be available. If you have a civil ceremony appointment, you should have cash available to pay for your ceremony as well. Our ability to perform civil ceremonies will not be affected. A marriage license is $77 and a civil ceremony is $75.
Please plan ahead and avoid coming to the Marriage License Bureau in downtown Las Vegas or our satellite office in Laughlin on Saturday, January 21, 2017, if possible.
As the Commissioner of Civil Marriages, the County Clerk is responsible for performing civil marriage ceremonies. Civil wedding ceremonies are held in The Office of Civil Marriages.
In addition, Las Vegas has dozens of lovely commercial wedding chapels, hotels, and resorts from which to choose.
Some private wedding chapels have names similar to the Office of Civil Marriages. To avoid confusion, note that this office is located at 330 S. 3rd Street, 6th Floor, Suite 660.

Nevada law requires that a witness be present during the wedding ceremony. The Office of Civil Marriages is not able to provide a witness. Unsavory individuals sometimes approach couples and offer to witness their ceremony for a fee. We
strongly encourage couples to bring their own witness to avoid having a person unknown to them witness their wedding ceremony.
