    Hi all, my partner and I are very seriously considering heading to Vegas to get married! Neither of us really want the "big white wedding" here at home, but we will more than likely have a party with family and close friends on our return...

    My question is, would a Vegas wedding be legal and recognized here in ireland?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes.
    My brother and his wife married in Vegas some years ago. Seems the perfect thing to do if people don't want the old 'big white wedding'
    thing.

    Yes, make sure you go to the registration office after the ceremony and get your long form marriage certificate or apply for it and have it posted. You'll need the long form cert to have the marriage recognised in other countries.

    I got married in Las Vegas last year, yes the marriage is legally recognised.
    You don't need to do anything in Ireland, your marriage is registered in the State of Nevada and the marriage certificate they issue is accepted as cert in Ireland.
    Don't forget to notify Revenue after you're married.

    The whole process is incredibly straight forward.
    We had a great time and can only recommend doing it.

    Ah, I got married in another State (courthouse), and we were issued a short form cert and then had to apply for the long form cert for official stuff. I suspect it was a mixture of misinformation and different States having different rules. Not surprised Vegas weddings are so popular, I've never heard of anyone regretting it.

    I believe Brittney Spears regretted it... lol

    Yeah we have been thinking about it for a while now, and all the information I'm getting and reading into suggest that it's the way to go, also my girlfriend and I are big elvis fans!! There's so much of a choice there for all kinds of tastes and so fecking affordable!!! We are also going to treat ourselves to a few nights in the Bellagio woohoo

    Thank you so much for your reply, it just confirms that it's what we want as a couple, now just to get a babysitter for a week....

    @no88y did you get hitched in the end? My partner and I are considering doing the same when we can travel to vagas and wondering how simple it actually was? Anything needed to be done in Ireland prior to boarding the flight? :)

    We are just back from our own vegas wedding. Incredibly easy. Went to the Marriage license bureau in old town vegas a couple of days before the ceremony. They give you your marriage licence and the officiant signs it on the actual ceremony day. You can order your official signed licence online a few days later. Fully recognised in Ireland when you are back. Getting married in vegas is so worth it! So much fun and no stress on the day.

    That sounds like the ticket!!!! Good Craic.. Mrs Mc Carthy & myself 'bit the bullet' in Gretna Green for the princely sum of £150 ( which included a 2 course lunch for two witnesses & ourselves in the local pub afterwards 🤣). Like you say.....zero stress...... I've walked 2 daughters down the aisle in the last decade.....v v stressful. Anyhow, congrats........did the King do " love me tender??????
