On Tuesday — February 22, 2022 — a record number of couples are set to tie the knot in Las Vegas.
In the wedding capital of the world, a record number of couples will be getting married, creating a big ripple effect for all sorts of businesses tied to the industry.
“For 2/22/22 we were just bombarded with so many phone calls. I swear there were seven lines ringing,” said an employee at Rolling Dough Bakery in Spring Valley.
A local flower shop said they typically receive a couple of orders for bridal bouquets, but on 2/22/22 that number is a lot higher.
“We've seen a huge uptick in business. We’re doing about 25 weddings. We’re expecting to get a lot of walk-in customers so we definitely have flowers ready for them,” said the owner.
Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya says the county is expecting 2/22/22 to be one of the five highest wedding dates of all time in Las Vegas.
Also for "Wedding Month," the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority published a quiz to help couples realize their vision of a Vegas wedding. You can find it here.
