Getting married in Las Vegas is simple and easy in a nutshell you need to go to the Clark County Marriage Bureau fill in a form and pay $55+ $7.50 for the certificate, cash is the only form of payment taken. You are then free to get married in Las Vegas. The actual legal requirements are further down this page

Obtaining Your Marriage licence

You need to go the Clark County Marriage Bureau in person and you have to go together and the bureau only takes cash ($55) and they ask for the correct amount ! The bureau is  no longer open 245/7 but open 8am until midnight 7 days a week. At public holidays and particularly Valentines day you can find yourself queuing for a long time. You also need to show your passport, driving licence or birth certificate, surprisingly enough this (at least until next year) is only to prove your age not who you are ! You need to hand over a completed marriage licence application form each which you can download the form here you should download the instructions here they will help you. The Marriage Bureau suggests you bring a copy of the instructions with you when you apply for your licence. If you are not a US citizen under the title “Social Security (E)” write “NONE” Once you have handed over the forms and the cash and proved you are at least 18 you will be given a marriage licence this is valid for one year and allows to get married in Nevada by anyone licensed to perform marriages.

Obtaining Your Marriage Certificate
When you get to your marriage venue you will need to hand over your marriage licence, your minister (or appointed licensed person) will then marry you and he or she will file this with the Marriage Bureau so that a marriage certificate can be issued. The minister does not get paid by the wedding venue he works for tips so you should give him at least $50. Many venues will arrange for a marriage certificate to be posted to you or allow you to collect it from them at a later date. You can also apply for a certified marriage certificate by writing to “Clark County Recorder, P.O. Box 551510 Las Vegas, Nevada 89155-1510” and enclosing the fee of $10.

Donnie and Marie Tickets now on Sale, Flamingo Hilton Las Vegas

Donnie and MarieDonnie and Marie Osmond Tickets are now on sale for dates from the 9th September when they will be headlining at the Flamingo Las Vegas

Donny and Marie bring their distinctive talents and undeniable charm to Flamingo Las Vegas, starting September 9. These icons of music and television are set to dazzle and delight audiences of all ages.

Presented by Vegas superstar Danny Gans and Chip Lightman of GansLight Entertainment, the 90-minute extravaganza will showcase Donny and Marie’s greatest hits in a multimedia spectacle presented on a custom-designed stage with multiple video screens and a sizeable cast of electrifying dancers.

Donny and Marie’s timeless hits (some of which topped the charts as duets, while others were performed solo), include “Paper Roses,” “Make the World Go Away,” “I’m Leaving It (All) Up to You,” “Morning Side of the Mountain,” “Puppy Love,” “Soldier of Love,” “Deep Purple” and others.

This will mark the first time in 29 years that the dynamic pair has performed an extended residency engagement in Las Vegas.

“What Las Vegas has been missing is a true variety show that conveys the real essence of America and the country’s love of homegrown talent,” said Danny Gans, winner of numerous “Entertainer of the Year” accolades. “When you couple that element with the current Las Vegas entertainment landscape, we felt Donny and Marie provided the perfect combination and something no one else was making available.”

The “a little bit country, a little bit rock n’ roll” duo took the country by storm with the debut of the “Donny & Marie” variety show in 1976, becoming the youngest primetime hosts in television history. This universally popular series solidified their worldwide fan base which still numbers in the millions.

After multiple solo successes, the pair teamed up once again in 1998, hosting the successful, nationally-syndicated daytime talk show “Donny & Marie.” They recently hosted the “Miss USA” pageant.
