Las Vegas has long been associated with spontaneous, quick, straightforward, and no frills weddings.
You can literally drive through and have a Nevada wedding, or show up in the middle of the night if you’ve decided a sudden ceremony is what your heart desires.
The Vegas wedding stereotype often includes alcohol, a witness or two (who the couple may or may not be familiar with), and no wedding dresses or grooms in suits – more of a pair of jeans and a sweaty mood. Think of Ross and Rachel in Friends.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton
The former couple fled to Las Vegas and married in a chapel in 2000. Jolie was wearing jeans and Thornton was wearing a hat. The couple divorced two years later.
Britney Spears and Jason Alexander
In 2004, 22-year-old Spears’ decision to marry her childhood friend Alexander in Las Vegas made headlines around the world. The decision about their union was a mistake, their marriage was notoriously annulled after 55 hours.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford
The former couple married in 1991. When Gere was off filming for a single night, he flew Crawford and a few friends to Vegas on a private jet. The couple then married at The Church of the West chapel while Crawford walked down the aisle in a navy Armani suit, according to the CR Fashion Book.
The couple divorced four years later. Crawford married Rande Gerber in 1998 and has two children, Presley, and model daughter Kaia Gerber.
Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman
Fans of The Last Dance will remember the nostalgic series that revisits the moment the Chicago Bulls player married model Electra in Vegas in 1998. Rodman tried to annul their marriage nine days later. They reconciled but actually divorced a few months later.
Elvis and Priscilla Presley
It was only fitting that the ‘Viva Las Vegas’ singer was getting married in Sin City. The rock and roll legend married Priscilla in 1967 at the Aladdin Hotel and Casino. The couple divorced in 1973.
Mia Goth and Shia LaBeouf
Andre Agassi and Steffi Graff
The tennis champions were married in their Las Vegas home in 2001 just before their mothers. They have two children together.
