“The Cosmopolitan’s new Pop-up Wedding Chapel is a new twist on a Las Vegas tradition, the impromptu wedding,” noted Lisa Marchese, Chief Marketing Officer. “Whether you want to come in and renew your vows, get hitched or even just try marriage on for 24 hours with a faux ceremony – it will undoubtedly be a memorable experience.” Of course, the street level location will encourage passerby interaction too.
When tying the knot, legally or just for fun, there are a number of amenities available for purchase to enhance the wedding experience. The chapel’s retail space includes items such as wedding bands, faux wedding announcements and apparel as well as beer, wine and champagne. Guests are also encouraged to take photographs in the photo booth which will post pictures to Facebook and Twitter. The space will also feature a replica Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign for photos.
Three package options are available at The Wedding Chapel. Ranging from simple to a more elaborate affair, each includes a 20-minute ceremony, champagne poppers and Molla Space eraser rings dispensed from a gumball machine located in the chapel’s retail area. To individualize the ceremony to the couple’s tastes, a variety of add-on amenities such as custom playlists, post-ceremony reception, party favors, bouquets and boutonnieres, marriage certificates and photography packages are available at an additional cost. Packages range from the $80 “Hitched in a Hurry” package which includes a photobooth picture, space eraser rings, champagne cans, wedding ceremony and a gift bag to the luxe “Going to the Chapel” package at $195, which also includes a silk flower bouquet, an additional photobooth picture, party favors, cake tops, logo tee shirts, and a marquee hotel guest list for four people.
Legally-binding ceremonies are going to force you to shell out the big bucks – they’re an additional $90.
The chapel opens December 28, but sadly is only open until 12 AM weekends and 10 PM weeknights, so you’re going to have to go elsewhere for your late-night “gotta get married NOW” fix.
Still, we’re pretty sure we’re going to pull a Britney and have a 55-hour Las Vegas marriage next time we head out West.
