The wedding industry in Las Vegas has been on a decline since its peak in 2004 when 128,250 people were married in Clark County. The notion of coming to Las Vegas for a quickie wedding at a drive-through chapel has lost its luster. Industry insiders say it could be because of the slumping economy and others say those in the wedding business haven't given people a good enough reason to want to come to Las Vegas and get married.
