Other than a church and a legal court, a chapel is a place where a couple can tie their nuptial knots taking vows to spend a lifetime of togetherness. You can call a church a wedding chapel, but the former is mainly called that by the wedding duo when the ceremony only involves those contracting matrimony. More often than not, wedding chapels are found in the form of small buildings where only licensed people like pastors have the rights to conduct wedding ceremonies, and are bound to perform their ceremonies under some laws, depending on the region in which they are located. In the United States, they usually ask for a marriage license, proof of age of the wedding couple and proof of legal residence in the country. Las Vegas wedding chapels are very popular due to the large number of one-day Las Vegas weddings. Graceland in particular is a very popular spot for engaged couples to consider tying the knot.
Traditional wedding chapels offer ceremony packages that usually include the chapel fee, basic wedding flowers, a video of the ceremony, photo packages, chapel time and a wedding coordinator. The costs to stage a wedding in a good chapel will vary depending on the country or the city where the ceremony is to be held. In general, ceremonies held at those locations are not so expensive. The expenses can, however, go up depending on the number and quality of different packages offered by the wedding chapels.
