Many people decide to get married in Las Vegas because it is one of the easiest states to get married in. You do not have to undergo routine blood tests or reside in the state for a certain period of time before you are allowed to marry. But now that you have decided to have a Medieval themed wedding at the Excalibur in Las Vegas what should you do? It is surprisingly easy to plan a Medieval wedding at the Excalibur in Las Vegas. Here’s what to do.
Each couple who decides to get married in Las Vegas will need to obtain a marriage licence prior to their wedding ceremony. The Marriage licence bureau is located at 201 Clark Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89155. The phone number is (702) 671-0600. It is open from Monday-Friday between 8:00am-midnight. It is interesting to note that both US citizens and non-US citizens must meet the exact same requirements when applying for a marriage licence.
In order to receive a marriage licence from Nevada, both partners need to show proof of identification. This can be a passport, certified birth certificate, military ID card or a Permanent Resident card. If you are from a non-English speaking country, the identification you show needs to be translated into English. The fee for the marriage licence is $55.00. Make sure that you have enough cash on you to cover the marriage licence fee, as it must be paid in full.
If either or both parties have been divorced, they do not need to produce their divorce decree. They simply need to know the day, month year and place that the divorce took place. Once the marriage licence has been issued, it is valid for 12 months and the marriage ceremony must be performed in Nevada.
One of the most convenient things about getting married in Las Vegas is the fact that you can choose from any number of locations that provide package deals. The Excalibur hotel/casino is a venue that caters for Medieval weddings. It provides several package deals that you can choose from that range in price from $395-$1,575. If you are watching your budget, then you may want to consider getting married between Sunday-Thursday, as it is cheaper to get married during these days than it is on Fridays, Saturdays and Holidays.
Most of the packages allow you to rent the hall for 30 minutes (apart from the “Legendary Love” package that allows you to rent the hall for 1 hour) and the packages come with Medieval-style music, a bouquet for the bride, boutonniere for just the bride and groom, a commemorative certificate holder and a bottle of champagne. The photos also come inclusive in each of the packages, but the amount of photos you receive and the sizes vary according to the package you choose.
You have the choice of bringing along your own Medieval costumes for your wedding ceremony or hiring costumes from Excalibur upon arrival. If you decide to hire a costume, you will have several choices. You can dress up as a king and queen, queen mother, a regent king, blue princess, red knight, purple knight, knave, a lady in waiting (various colours) or as a maiden.
You can also wear a headdress that is already provided with the costumes or bring along your own, such as a veil. The costumes must normally be returned straight after the wedding ceremony has been performed, which is one of the downsides. If you bring along your own costumes, you can wear them later on at the reception too.
Excalibur offers newlyweds an additional reception package if they so wish. The staff can cater for the bride and groom and their guests and provide a wedding cake, champagne, dance facilities and much more. It is entirely up to you. You can have as little or as much as you would like.
Planning a Medieval themed wedding in Las Vegas can help to take a lot of the pressure off the bride and groom as others organise and plan the finer details of their wedding day. Once you have obtained your marriage licence, you know what you will wear and what package you would like to have, then the rest should slot easily into place.
