Wedding Information
Getting Married in Laughlin

Resting on the banks of the Colorado River, set amongst the serene Nevada desert, Laughlin provides some of the most picturesque wedding locations available at prices that any newlyweds could appreciate. The area’s spectacular desert beauty coupled with its relaxed atmosphere and more than enough recreational opportunities makes Laughlin a great destination for your guests, turning this event into a exciting vacation for everyone.

Here are some places to contact for wedding information. I hope this will get you off into the right direction. I have no personal info on these companies, although I've heard that the "Laughlin River Tours" is the best. I've also been told that the Colorado Belle, Flamingo Hilton, and the Riverside Resort are also good. Marriage licenses are available at the Clark County Courthouse in Laughlin, NV.

NOTE: Weddings aboard cruise boats require an Arizona marriage license. Please contact the cruise ship directly for additional information, requirements and assistance.
