A pop-up license bureau is being set up at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas to accommodate all the lovebirds with marriage plans who flock to the city around Valentine’s Day.

Getting married in Las Vegas is popular year-round. But each year around Valentine’s Day and the Presidents Day weekend, the Clark County Clerk’s office in downtown Las Vegas office reports issuing more than 1,500 marriage licenses, about twice the number they do during other times of the year.

This year the Chinese New Year, considered by many to be a lucky day to tie the knot, falls on Feb. 16, and marriage license requests in Las Vegas are expected to surge. So to make it easier for couples flying to Sin City to get legally hitched this year, the County Clerk’s office will issue marriage licenses from Feb. 9 to 17 from a pop-up office in the airport’s Terminal 1 baggage claim area.
