No More Late Night Marriage Licences in Las Vegas

"Las Vegas bills itself as "the wedding capital of the world," but late-night revellers who decide they want to tie the knot now must wait until morning. . . . People can still get married around the clock at one of the city's few all-night wedding chapels; it will just take a bit more planning to obtain the $55 licence (29 pounds), said Cheryl Vernon, who supervises the marriage-services office in the county clerk's department. Vernon said the new office hours were not the result of a push to curb irresponsible life decisions, but simply because too few early-morning customers -- about 15-30 people -- came in to justify a late-night shift. About 300 to 500 people seek licenses on a normal shift, she said. Last year the office issued 122,259 marriage licences."
