    PLAN AHEAD

    Nevada is home to two popular wedding destinations, Las Vegas and Burning Man. Additionally, all ministers in Nevada must be certified by the local county clerk. Because of this it can take months for some offices, like the Clark County Clerk, to process your application. Don't procrastinate! We recommend that you apply well in advance of the wedding date.

    Successful registration in a county only allows you to officiate weddings in that county, so make sure you know what office you need to contact.

    PREPARE FOR THE WEDDING CEREMONY

    The Wedding Training section of our site provides you with all the information and training required to officiate your first wedding. Additionally, AMM Ministers that register their weddings gain access to exclusive personalized ceremony scripts and other tools that help them prepare for, and perform marriages.

    We highly recommend that you read through our ceremony training section and register your wedding prior to the ceremony.

    HANDLING THE MARRIAGE LICENSE

    After the ceremony you must fulfill your remaining legal obligation...completing the marriage license with the newlyweds. This simply involves signing the license along with the couple and any required witnesses.

    It is the couple’s responsibility to acquire their marriage license prior to the ceremony. Your job is to simply sign and complete your section of the license.

    Once the marriage license is completed and returned to its issuance office, the marriage is recorded and made legal.
