February sees more couples going to the chapel in Vegas

February 14, 2022 GMT

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Between Valentine’s Day and Feb. 22, or 2-22-22, love will be in the Las Vegas area air for most of the month.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Sin City, also home of several glitzy chapels of love, is gearing up for more couples than usual saying “I do” starting Monday, Valentine’s Day.

The demand is expected to be so high that a pop-up marriage license bureau has been installed at Harry Reid International Airport. It will remain open through Feb. 22.

The Clark County Marriage License Bureau on Sunday saw a long line of couples waiting to see the clerk before.

Clark County Clerk Lynn Goya says her staff anticipates handling more than 80,000 marriage certificates this year. That would surpass the over 77,000 processed last year. She says local chapels are saying they’ve seen “some of the biggest numbers in years” for the month of February.

Couples can fill out an application ahead of time on the website weddings.vegas.

Feb. 22 has been a popular date in the wedding industry because of the 2-22-22 numerology.
