Yes, I'd like a Grand Slam, and a wedding. Thanks

A couple gets married at Denny's.

Wait, why didn't we think of this? Denny's flagship in Las Vegas has decided to open an in-house wedding chapel, which, when you think about it, is absolutely genius. What better way to end a classy Las Vegas night than by eating away your hangover with a Grand Slam right after tying the knot?

Eater brings us this amazing press release from the Denny's corporation, which boasts that the in-house wedding chapel "truly combines the authenticity of America's Diner with the eccentricity of Las Vegas," chief marketing officer Frances Allen said.

The first wedding had a "Pancake Puppies" wedding cake and Grand Slamosa cocktails, the former which looks like pancake cake pops. The full wedding package, which starts at $95, also throws in "Just Married' Denny's T-shirts, plus the wedding chapel. And while the general manager tells us that reservations will be necessary (no shotgun weddings here), he says he has gotten some 20 calls expressing interest. File this all under "Genius Business Ideas."

Wedding Chapel & Full Bar At New Las Vegas Denny's Could Inspire Some Bad Decisions

For all the times when the brilliant thought has hit you while drinking with a loved one — “Honey, let’s get married right now and have a wedding cake made from pancakes!” — Denny’s newest Las Vegas diner has your spot all lined up. The 24-hour diner will boast a full bar and a wedding chapel, for all your boozing, matrimonial and dining needs. Talk about a one-stop shop!

Denny’s announced on Thursday that it’s in the midst of planning a flagship diner to open up by the end of the year in downtown Las Vegas’ Neonopolis shopping complex, reports the Associated Press. Which means there could be even more full bar/wedding chapel Denny’s in the future.

The reasoning here, says Denny’s CEO John Miller, is that Las Vegas and Denny’s are kindred spirits, what with being open 24/7 and all.

And to commemorate what is surely going to be a memorable experience, the restaurant will also feature a photo booth stocked with Vegas-themed props. Although we’re sure no one is ever going to forget getting married at a Denny’s and doing Jager bombs to celebrate.

And if that isn’t enough to entice you to make your marital plans at Denny’s, there will be some special wedding packages at the chapel, including a cake made of Denny’s Pancake Puppies.

Say no more. First one to have a Denny’s wedding wins.

Nothing says romance like the stench of greasy bacon after a long night spent gambling, so it follows that legendary breakfast purveyor Denny's should open up a wedding chapel in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Sun reports that the restaurant chain is planning to build a 6,432-square-foot location inside Neonopolis, a massive indoor mall on Fremont Street that anchors a budding nightlife scene. Marriages will be performed smack in the middle of the restaurant's dining area, so that you can enjoy your Grand Slam while watching other people alter their lives forever.

Frances Allen, Denny's chief marketing officer, told the Sun that the restaurant, which Denny's is calling a "flagship," makes perfect sense: "The wedding scene is such a part of Vegas," he said, "and who doesn't want a wedding cake made out of pancakes?"


You Can Get Married At A Las Vegas Denny's for $99 This Valentine's Day

If you and your beloved are big fans of breakfast, you need to head to Las Vegas this Valentine's Day. Especially, if you're ready to get hitched.

This February 14, couples can tie the knot in the Denny's chapel for less than a hundred bucks. The $99 ceremony fee includes a silk presentation bouquet and boutonniere, a champagne toast, and a ceremony certificate. For an additional fee, couples can also order the Pancake Puppies, which look like cake pops but are filled with mini pancakes.

While the V-Day special is new, this tradition has been going on since 2013, when Denny's first opened its Vegas chapel. Apparently the Las Vegas wedding tradition is still alive and well, and even more so around Valentine's Day.

According to the Clark County Marriage Licensing Bureau, more than 1,500 marriage licenses are issued in the county during the days leading up to and on Valentine's Day. That's about twice as many licenses as are issued during a non-holiday period, the Bureau said. And while you could go the Elvis route, getting married surrounded by diner foods sure is unique.

A Denny's wedding ceremony typically costs $199, and includes extra frills like use of the photo booth, a Wedding Pancake Puppies Cake, two wedding t-shirts, and a coupon for two Grand Slams on your next visit to Denny's.

The first couple to get married in the chapel, Nancy Levandowski and Steven Keller, pictured below, did so in 2013. According to the Iowa State Daily, it was the second wedding for both of them and they wanted it to be different and fun. Since they both work in the food industry, getting married at a restaurant made sense.

To reserve a spot at the Denny's chapel this Valentine's Day, Denny's fans can fill out this application. For those already married or not into the legalities, you can also purchase the package as a vow renewal or commitment ceremony.

Get married and grab an order of hotcakes to go: Denny's plans to open wedding chapel in Las Vegas

Denny's will unveil its third Las Vegas location, but unlike the first two, it will boast a wedding chapel. The diner's decorations will celebrate Las Vegas' extravagance. The chapel is Denny's crème de la crème in Vegas-themed merriment.

"We already have two wonderful diners on the Strip. For us there was no better place to bring a unique Denny's than to Fremont Street, with all the revitalization going on down there," Frances Allen, Denny's chief marketing officer, told the Las Vegas Sun.


Las Vegas Denny's Wedding Chapel a Grand Slam for Diner Fans

If you're jonesing to get hitched in Las Vegas but The Little White Chapel is packed, there's always The Large Yellow Denny's Chapel. A Las Vegas Denny's restaurant opened a full-service wedding chapel inside its dining area this week.

Nancy Levandowski and Steven Keller from Ames, Iowa, were the first couple to take the plunge in syrup-soaked nuptials, reports The Las Vegas Sun. But will their Denny's marriage be legally valid?

Las Vegas Marriage License Requirements

Just imagine it: A forkful of your Grand Slam Breakfast in one hand and a marriage license in the other. And, according to UPI, you even get 20% off your food bill! But is a Denny's marriage legal?

For a Denny's wedding to be legal, a couple must obtain a valid marriage license by meeting certain requirements, which include:

  • Applying for the marriage license in person at the Clark County Marriage License Bureau
  • Being a heterosexual couple (a biological male and a biological female) and be at least 18 years old
  • Bringing valid identification
  • Complying with citizenship requirements
  • Providing your Social Security number and
  • Paying a $60 fee.

Marriage Licenses in Nevada

Unlike some other states, there is no waiting period or blood testing required to get a Las Vegas marriage license. A Las Vegas marriage license is valid for a year, which means a wedding ceremony must be conducted in Las Vegas within one year of obtaining the license.

After you get your marriage license, you can get hitched at the Denny's Chapel without a hitch. For out-of-towners who want in on the Denny's Chapel, rest assured that your Nevada license will be recognized in other states.

Mazel tov to Nancy Levandowski and Steven Keller. May the two of you share many happy Early Bird Specials as you live happily ever after.

Wedding chapel opening at the Container Park in Las Vegas

Most of downtown Las Vegas’ famed wedding chapels are clustered around the Regional Justice Center or along Las Vegas Boulevard.

Most of downtown Las Vegas’ famed wedding chapels are clustered around the Regional Justice Center or along Las Vegas Boulevard.

But Henry and Rachel Sneed, owners of Lucky Little Chapel, are trying something new in a competitive industry amid a drop in the number of marriage licenses in Clark County.

The couple is opening a second Lucky Little Chapel in Downtown Container Park on East Fremont Street on New Year’s Eve. In March, the Sneeds opened their first chapel about a five-minute car ride away at 321 S. Casino Center Blvd.

Rachel Sneed said she wanted to open a second chapel at Container Park after visiting there during the summer and “loved the vibe” of the 707 Fremont St. outdoor retail hub built by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project, a $350 million redevelopment initiative for the East Fremont corridor.

The Sneeds have invested $20,000-$30,000 to launch their Container Park site on the third floor, where they rent a 350-square-foot chapel with capacity for 35-40 guests and adorned with a chandelier, stone wall and bamboo chairs. The business also includes a 270-square-foot check-in retail space where people can rent wedding dresses and suits and buy rings.

Two-year-old Container Park has 38 tenants, which are mostly small retailers, restaurants and bars housed in repurposed shipping containers. The small businesses come and go on the top level where the Sneeds are opening their chapel, but they are marketing the cozy wedding ceremony nook as a destination.

“We’re not dependent solely on retail foot traffic,” Rachel Sneed said. She noted many bookings will be made online.

Lucky Little Chapel charges $250-$1,000 depending on the package deal. The Sneeds started with about 40 weddings in March and did 260 in November. They do not have financial projections for the Container Park site. They do renewal ceremonies, too.

The Sneeds also work as associate pastors for The Church LV, a contemporary nondenominational church in Henderson. The couple gives 10 percent of their wedding chapel revenues to local charities.

The Sneeds have worked for one of Las Vegas’ most well-known chapel owners, Charlotte Richards, who owns Little White Wedding Chapel. Richards owned as many as five chapels in Las Vegas at one time and estimated there are at least 30 chapels competing in the downtown nuptials business.

Richards said Container Park is an unusual place for a chapel and wished the couple luck, though she would have advised against using “Lucky” in their chapel’s name.

“Whatever they do, I hope they do it well,” Richards said. “Everything they know, I taught them.”

Henry Sneed said “Lucky” taps into Las Vegas’ gambling reputation and said they have not received any negative comments about the “Lucky” term.

Rachel Sneed said she was not aware of other wedding chapels in the immediate Container Park neighborhood and hopes her wedding chapel can cross-promote with other Container Park businesses such as the restaurants and bars.

“I hope our presence will help everyone here,” Rachel Sneed said. “The first thing people say after they get married is, ‘Let’s go celebrate.’ “

Denny’s restaurant at the Fremont Street Experience opened a wedding chapel in April 2013. But most are strung along Las Vegas Boulevard to the south or in the courthouse area.

The wedding chapel competition is stiff in Las Vegas because the number of couples getting married in Clark County is dropping. The county issued nearly 130,000 marriage licenses in 2004, compared to nearly 81,000 in 2014. For 2015, there have been 75,239 marriage licenses through November.
