The Cosmopolitan, a major Las Vegas casino resort, has announced it will be opening a “Pop-Up Wedding Chapel” next week where people can have spontaneous weddings and tourists can watch the ceremonies.
The chapel will have a wall of oversized windows and will be located next to the resort’s Strip entrance with clear views from Las Vegas Boulevard.
It “is a new twist on a Las Vegas tradition: the impromptu wedding,” said Cosmopolitan Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Marchese . “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 for both the participants and those just watching.”
Opening December 28, the chapel will offer vow renewals, commitment ceremonies, pet weddings and faux weddings along with traditional marriage ceremonies. Ceremonies will run about 20 minutes and include champagne and two pink eraser rings dispensed from a gumball machine.
A retail shop will sell announcements, wedding bands and drinks, and a photo booth will transmit instant photos to Facebook and Twitter.
