- “How many times we have couples show up, they forget the marriage license.” [Maria]
- “If you’re on a budget, come in on the off days when it’s not peak season.” [Maria]

- Maria Romano is a licensed wedding officiant in the wedding capital of the world, Las Vegas. She has been doing weddings for over 11 years.
- The pressure from the parents about the venue is one of the top stressors for the soon-to-be spouse.
- After booking your hotel rooms, take a look at wedding chapels in the area. If you’re being married on the weekend rather than a weekday, or a particular holiday, it will cost a little extra.
- You must pre-populate your marriage license on the Clark County Recorders’ Marriage License Bureau website. You’ll pre-fill it so that when you arrive in Las Vegas, all you have to do is head down to the marriage license bureau, provide your identification and money, and they’ll pull up your marriage license.
- Make sure you carry the marriage license with all the documents when you go to the wedding chapel.
