Flamingo and Imperial Palace Introduce New LGBT Commitment Ceremony Packages

Posted Wednesday, September 19, 2012 by in Caesars Entertainment, Flamingo Las Vegas, Las Vegas Casinos, Las Vegas Weddings, The Linq. 3 Comments.

The Flamingo Las Vegas and soon-to-be-renamed Imperial Palace have introduced six new LGBT commitment ceremony packages at their chapels.

Same-sex couples can make their commitment ceremony dreams a reality (although Nevada’s constitution still bans same-sex marriage, don’t shoot the messenger) at any of  seven venues, including the Imperial Palace’s new Silver Sky chapel (which boasts two newly-renovated chapels, the Skyline, pictured below, and the Sierra), and five locations at Flamingo, including the Crescendo pool and the hotel’s garden chapel.

Thought you knew what a chapel at Imperial Palace would look like? Think again.

These LGBT Commitment ceremony packages start at $349.

The packages offer a variety of inclusions like wedding planners, aisle decor, dinner for two, a couple’s massage, portrait photography, video and other options.

On a related note, it’s worth mentioning that Caesars Entertainment, parent company of Flamingo and Imperial Palace, and whose Las Vegas blog this is, was the first casino company in the industry to receive a perfect rating from the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index (and has achieved a perfect score for five consecutive years). The Corporate Equality Index rates businesses based on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace policies.

That’s how we roll, baby. Learn more about your chapel options for the Flamingo and Imperial Palace.

  1. While there is no same sex marriage in Nevada, it is one of 13 states that offer some form of civil union or domestic partnership (pending elections and the outcome of lawsuits both Washington State and California may soon move from the list of states with civil unions to those with marriage equality). Nevada’s is one of the most robust, much like New Jersey and California. To quote the Nevada statute, “Domestic partners have the same rights, protections
    and benefits, and are subject to the same responsibilities, obligations and
    duties under law, whether derived from statutes, administrative regulations,
    court rules, government policies, common law or any other provisions or sources
    of law, as are granted to and imposed upon spouses.” ( NRS 122A.200.1(a))

    While it is entirely unclear how these partnerships transfer from state to state, certainly Nevada residents can take advantage of these packages to solemnize their legally recognized partnerships. Residents of other states may also wish to solemnize their unions in the grand Vegas tradition even if they have to go home and do some additional paperwork on their own.

    Thanks for the always-valuable info, Jonathan.

  3. Asking questions are truly good thing if you are not understanding something totally,
    but this piece of writing offers nice understanding yet.
