Approximately, how many wedding chapels are located in Las Vegas?
Among the wedding chapels most are north of the major Strip area, and the chapels in the casinos, themselves. Almost all are on Las Vegas Boulevard. Some chapels even have drive-up windows.
It's estimated that 100,000 weddings are performed annually in Las Vegas. Some chapels allow more weddings per day than others. The chapel at the Bellagio, for example, only does eight to 10 a day, while some of the stand-alone properties do at least one an hour if not more.
