In the past decade, the Wedding Capital of the World has seen a significant decline in the matrimony business. Since 2000, the number of marriage licenses issued in Clark County has dropped almost 40 percent, far above the national average during the same time. Although the economy is still inching its way out of the recession and tourism is hitting record numbers, the number of weddings has remained stagnant. So professionals across the Valley, from chapel owners to wedding photographers to limo drivers, decided to come together and form the Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce. The new coalition will work with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority on a marketing plan to attract out-of-towners to tie the knot, as well as work together to provide special packages and share resources.
