    Does anyone know the requirements for a Canadian to get married in Las Vegas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I think you just need to contact the state of Nevada and check what their requirements are... same as if you'd be getting married in Mexico. ...no?

      I didn't look too closesly at these sites, but you might want to check them out for more information:

      Oooh... I found this:


      Marriage License Application

      Application:A man and woman who are unrelated and are both at least 18 years old may be issued a marriage license in Clark County. Proof of age may be required. Both must appear at the Marriage License Bureau in the County Courthouse, at 200 S. 3rd Street, 1st floor.

      Blood test, waiting periods:In Clark County, blood tests are not required and there is no waiting period.

      Fees:$55.00 for a license.

      Consent:People ages of 16 and 17 may marry if consent is given in person at time of application by either parent or legal guardian. A certified copy of the birth certificate may be required. Legal guardian must have court order showing proof of legal guardianship. All people giving consent must have proof of identity. Consent is given by notarized affidavit of consent, which must be written in English and contains the birth date of the minor and must state the relationship of person giving consent.

      Order of Court for people under age 16:A person less than 16 years of age may marry if either parent or legal guardian files an action, pays all court fees and presents a court order, from a Nevada State Court.

      Requirements for divorced people marrying:To obtain a marriage license and have a legal marriage divorces must be final in the state where granted. The date of the final decree and city and state where granted are required.

      International marriage information:Couples from outside the United States can be married in Las Vegas. Most countries will want a certified copy of your marriage certificate and an Apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State. The marriage certificate costs $10 and the Apostille costs $20. The Nevada Secretary of State can send the Apostille and certified marriage certificate copy directly to your government for you.

      All marriage certificates issued in the state of Nevada must be used within this state.

          Hey I am just down the road from you at CFB Comox. We are heading to Las Vegas too. I am looking at the Valley of Fire Wedding. Not sure of the date yet. Somewhere in end of Dec to the beginning of Jan 08. I wanted 08.08.08 but complications marrying an American is causing the move in date. Good luck with everything.
