LAS VEGAS (September 25, 2017) – Wedding chapels and venues across Las Vegas will kick off Veterans Day weekend and honor our military members with the debut of “Las Vegas Marries the Military.” All day Nov. 10, 2017, chapels and wedding professionals across the Las Vegas Valley will open their doors to active duty military and veterans by donating wedding services to selected military members. Submissions to win a free wedding or vow renewal are now open at MarrytheMilitary.vegas, and interested couples need to submit a 30-60 second video on what a Las Vegas wedding or vow renewal would mean to them.
The Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce (LVWCC) put a call out to its members to participate and received overwhelming support – 40 members have offered free services valued at nearly $40,000 with 25 weddings or vow renewals to take place.

LVWCC members have come to support our military and are showcasing just the variety Las Vegas has to offer.
